"The Zecto Drive Rear light from Lezyne is an absolute little gem. It's neat, bright, and clips easily to your bike, helmet or backpack. It's also rechargeable, waterproof and fairly priced."

ENDURO Mountainbike Magazine's Design & Innovation Award 2014 has recognized our Micro Floor Drive HV and Carbon 10 Multitool as top products of their class! We greatly appreciate this recognition and continue to make award-winning, great working products for all of our lovely riders out there!
"In those cases where you just want to inflate your tire fast and comfortably you need a reliable air pump. The Lezyne Micro Floor Drive HVG offers all the advantages of a big floor pump in a compact backpack format."
Lezyne just got our hands on the new, 2014 Velo Buyer's Guide and noticed our Road Drive Hand Pump on one of their articles.
The text reads: "The only thing worse than getting a flat tire is lacking the necessary tools to repair it. All too often, people's repair kits are bulky, unsightly things, especially their pumps – they'd look more at home in the recycling bin rather than mounted to a bike costing as much as a used car. The Lezyne Road Drive is big enough to move air quickly and easily into the tire – a key to inflating tubeless tires – but is still aesthetically appealing. Its painted aluminum construction will never go out of style."
Needless to say, we were flattered! If you haven't already, pick up a copy of the Velo Buyer's Guide 2014, it has everything you will need to make the right choices for your future rides!
A top Danish Auto Magazine tested several lights for their safety and visibility to have cyclists be best equipped to be seen on the road by motorists. In an article titled "Cyclists, We Can't See you!" Lezyne's Macro/Micro pair was hands-down the most visible light that they tested.
"If drivers need to be able to see cyclists in the winter darkness, a good bike light and reflector are required. But even legal bike lights are hard to see from inside the car. Therefore, Motor tested a committee to guide you to be seen in the dark.
When a bicycle is hit by light from a car, the motorist can often see the reflectors better than bike lights. The reflectors in the wheels also make the rider more visible from the side. The bicycle must be equipped with the statutory reflectors regardless of the time of day.
To become even more visible , you can supplement with bike lights, clothes and bags or a bike with a reflective vest . The colors of the bike reflectors must follow the statutory: white front, red rear and yellow to the side and PA moving parts.
WE TESTED THE LAMPS
We saw all the lights from 300 meters. All could be seen, as required by law. But as the pictures show, there is a big difference between how well the test winner, Lezyne, and the cheapest from INGEAR can be seen. In addition, we saw that the lights are best seen when they are flashing.
Can they be seen in the side view mirror? We subjected all the lights for right turn test , and as you can see, the best lights shine throughout the car, mirror up, while the weakest fall in with the surroundings. In the city, flashing lights is a big advantage.
From the saddle. If you cycle out of the cities, you may need to see whether there are gaps or ice on the road. So we put the cones up to 5 meters apart and tested the lamps (lights) reach. Lezyne and Mixbike lights were the only lights strong enough to light up to 20m ahead. Centre-beam focus is also important, however. Do you need a lamp to light the way up, you should test it before purchase."

"As Lezyne puts it, just a few years ago there were no Lezyne Lights. Now, they're practically an electronics company. The Super Drive XL, Mega Drive, and Zecto Drive Pro offer just a small glimpse into their line up from the 160 lumen Zecto Pro to the blinding 1200 lumen Mega Drive."

"If Apple was to create a track pump, it would be white and have a digital screen. Lezyne, however, got there first with it's new series of pumps that includes this, the Steel Digital Drive."
Looks like if Apple got into the bike pump business, we would give them a run for their money!
