Online publication Fat-Bike.com, “Born of a love for FatBikes and all things FAT”, pitted our very own Micro Floor Drive HV against two other contenders in the market, The SKS Spaero Double Action and the Topeak Mountain Morph, for their first ever shootout. The shootout judges each pump on weight, ergonomics and the number of cycles it took to reach 7 PSI, and is complete with personal accounts and plenty of charts to map out the results.
“At the end of the test, I put the Lezyne Micro Floor HV in the frame pack on my fat-bike and retired my Mountain Morph to my Krampus frame bag. That’s a pretty telling summary of this trail pump shoot-out. We declare the Lezyne the winner, with the Topeak coming in a close second and the Spaero a somewhat distant third.”
The well-known online cycling publication Velo News had some great things to say about our Micro Floor Drive HV for traveling cyclists or mountain bikers looking for a speedier, compact pump. The Lezyne Micro Floor Drive HV is a compact high volume pump design that brings floor pump function and power along for the ride. The aluminum barrel, shaft, base and T-handle are CNC machined for durability, ergonomics and reduced weight. The stainless steel foot peg provides stability while pumping. The ABS Flip-Thread Chuck and long rubber hose make it easy to reach Presta and Schrader valves. The HVG model features an in-line psi/bar pressure gauge. It comes equipped with Lezyne’s ABS Flex Hose, which has a threaded Presta connection with ABS on one side and a threaded Shrader connection on the other.
“Lezyne’s Micro Floor Drive HV is perfect for cyclists who travel, or for mountain bikers looking for a faster inflation option. Its long hose and floor pump design make it much easier to use than a traditional mini pump. It’s also bigger, of course, at 12″ long.”
