Universal Sports Network Visits Lezyne at Interbike
Universal Sports Network visited our booth at Interbike’s Outdoor Dirt Demo to check out what was hot (other than the weather)! Our new KTV Drive and KTV Pro stood out as great safety lights and our Carbon Road Drive represented our popular line of lightweight, durable and user-friendly hand pumps.
“Bike safety is important. Lezyne Engineered Design has some low profile safety lights to keep you visible and also have a lightweight tire pump.”
Bikeradar Lists Lezyne in Friday Five-a-side for Best New Gear
Every Friday, Bikeradar rounds up the best gear in mountain and road biking. This week, the online cycling publication listed Lezyne amongst Bontrager, Moots, Performance, Reynolds, and more, featuring our Deca Drive, Macro Duo, and KTV line (front, rear and Pro).
“Headlining our recent shipment of test samples is the new Deca Drive with up to 900 (claimed) lumens of output via three LED emitters. Stated run time at the highest setting is a modest 1 1/2 hours (or up to 21 hours on the longest-lasting flashing mode) with convenient recharging via a micro-USB cable in as little as six hours. The Li-ion battery can also be easily swapped out for a fresh pack (optional) if you want to head out for longer rides, too.”
“Commuters looking for a convenient helmet-mounted all-in-one combo light can check out the Macro Drive Duo, which features a 400-lumen claimed output up front coupled with a five-lumen red LED out back – all neatly tucked together in the same aluminum case. Cutouts at the front of the body add some side visibility as well. Claimed run is the same 1 1/2 hours as the Deca Drive but in this case, the non-swappable battery will recharge via the built-in micro-USB port in just three hours.”
“The KTV Drive Pro front-only light is the brightest safety option with 70 claimed lumens, and the clever mounting system can be used on handlebars or clothing. Pop off the rear cap and there’s a USB plug built into the body so you can plug it right into your computer for handy recharging. Claimed run time is one hour at the highest setting or up to six hours in certain flashing modes. Alternatively, the standard KTV – offered in both front and rear varieties – puts out a more modest 15 lumens (claimed) with 180-degree visibility thanks to a curved lens shape. Like the KTV Pro, the standard KTV’s mount can easily be used on seatposts and handlebars or clipped on to clothing, and the built-in USB stick makes for easy recharging. Claimed run time is 4 1/2 to 9 1/2 hours depending on mode.”
The successful launch of the KTV went off with a bang in Taiwan, and the media was there to capture it, party and all. The Taiwan Company News reported on the big event, and although the entire thing is printed in Taiwanese, it can be viewed by either clicking the above graphic or below thumbnail. Lezyne’s Sam Chau provided a gist of it right here:
“So the ‘KTV’ name has already raised a lot of questions, so if we wanted to be provocative, it’s working. We also added a lot of interest by doing the KTV launch party. The media has been asking me why it’s named ‘KTV’, we can’t deny it has an innuendo attached to it but here’s what I’m trying to convey:
The KTV light was created to bring a ‘unique personality’ into our LED line, challenging the norm and conventionality of what’s currently in the market. When people think of the word KTV there are all sorts of thoughts and emotions that come up – and having a large operation in Taiwan, we fully understand the various insinuations of this name. There can be a lot of interpretations but in the end it should all conclusively be blissful and happy.
Going to a KTV is like going to a sanctuary – it can be a place to relax, a place to have fun, and a place to celebrate. Similarly, we believe that when one takes their bicycle for a night ride they experience the same emotions. When a consumer purchases this product for their night ride, we hope they can bring this positive energy with them – just be happy.”
