We’ve gotten a lot of great reviews from BikeRadar in the past, but of course, this year we’ve got our eyes on the new Lezyne GPS line. The popular online cycling publication caught wind of our brand new product category, and featured our Super GPS in the latest, pre-Fall edition of 11spd, their weekly collection of the hottest new cycling gear to grace their offices in Colorado.
BikeRadar had great things to say about the Super GPS, stating that “In initial testing, we found the Lezyne Super GPS to stay connected to our iPhone more reliably than a Garmin Edge.”
“While the 75g Super GPS does not provide navigation — the GPS functionality here is used for recording where you ride, plus metrics like speed and distance — it does work with heart rate straps, power meters and mobile phones thanks to ANT+ and Bluetooth connectivity.”
BikeRadar has released another great review for us! This time it’s for our Port-A-Shop Tool Kit. “Lezyne’s Port-A-Shop fits the tools for last-minute adjustments and fittings before your ride into a tough fabric folder, and it’s a fantastic kit.”
The Lezyne Port-A-Shop is a cycling specific tool kit that is small enough to take traveling, yet functional enough to use in the garage. The kit includes tools for basic maintenance and most repairs. The convenient carrying case, with labeled pockets, keeps tools organized and safe.
BikeRadar Lists Macro Front and Micro Rear as Best Road Cycling Lights
The online cycling publication released a list of their favorite LED lights for road cycling, whether for urban or commuting use. The Lezyne Macro Drive (Front) and Micro Drive (Rear) made the cut! The Lezyne Macro Drive features a lightweight and sturdy CNC-machined aluminum body with a Side Visibility design that allows 180 degrees of visibility and increases user safety. Constant Lumens power management drives the LED at a bright 400 lumens, and the Intelligent Power Indicator button allows the user to check the power level at any time. The Side Visibility Cuts allow for 180 degrees of visibility, especially from the side. The Li-ion battery (non-replaceable) is recharged either with a fast, high eﬃciency, 2 Amp charging with a compatible wall adaptor, or via a Micro USB cable for ultimate convenience. The Overdrive Race Mode allows quick switching between Overdrive and Economy, depending on the occasion. The Composite Matrix back cap design conceals the USB port for recharging the battery. This unobtrusive light attaches to a wide range of handlebar sizes using a snap-fit Composite Matrix mount that is secured with a multi-position, silicon rubber strap for tool-less installation. It is available as a single front LED or as a front/rear pair with the Micro Drive Rear, or with the Zecto Drive Rear. The Lezyne Micro Drive Rear provides a high-visibility 70-lumen Daytime Flash mode. Constant Lumens power management drives the LED at a steady output, and also features an Intelligent Power Indicator button and a Side Visibility Design. The body is made CNC-machined aluminum. The light easily attaches to a wide range of round seatpost diameters via a snap-fit Composite Matrix mount, with a multi-position silicon rubber strap for tool-less installation. The dedicated rear mount points upward to ensure light is directed straight back. It is available as a single rear LED, or as 2 different front/rear pairs (Micro Drive Front/Rear, or Macro Drive Front/Micro Drive Rear).
