The Lezyne Zecto Drive is a compact safety light with three LEDs designed with a lightweight and sturdy Composite Matrix and CNC-machined aluminum body. It delivers a highly visible 80 lm in Daytime Flash Mode. The Intelligent Power Indicator allows the user to check the power level at any time, and provides Side Visibility, allowing 180 degrees of visibility and increases user safety. It can recharge any time with a Micro USB cable for ultimate convenience. The light easily attaches via its Clip-On System, providing for versatile strapped or clipped mounting.
The award winning Lezyne Road Drive will finally be available in the size all roadies and weight-weenies around the world have been waiting for – SMALL. After many requests by fans to make a good thing even better by making it smaller, we said "why not!" So the new Road Drive S will measure in at pocket-stuffing 180mm long, weigh in at a lightweight 82g, and have the same max pressure as its bigger brothers – 160 psi / 11bar. It will feature the same CNC machined aluminum parts, aluminum pump frame mount, and come with Lezyne's secure ABS Speed Flex hose. The price will also be the same at US $44.99 and will be available in stores this November.
So, if you want a hand pump to replace your old frame pump or an efficient pocket stuffer, now you can buy the Road Drive in the size that best suites you.
Choose the best. Ride with Lezyne.

Geraardsbergen, Belgium : Team Specialized-lululemon made a great start at the Lotto Decca Tour on Friday, taking the win in the TTT event. The ladies finished 35 seconds ahead of Orica Green Edge. Ellen Van Dijk, defending champion, will wear the yellow leaders jersey going into stage two.
"It was quite a technical course, and we didn't really get the chance to learn it but everyone was in the same boat and it was another good opportunity for us to practice as a team together for World Championships," said Van Dijk. "We have 35 seconds to try to save now and we'll have to be attentive of time bonuses, but we're looking forward to trying to defend the jersey."
Lezyne continues to proudly sport Specialized-lululemon as ambassadors of Engineered Design! Way to go ladies!

Lezyne ambassador Yannick Granieri, the “Stocky Slopestyler” From Lyon, consistently amazes everyone with his MTB freeriding.
He made himself scarce in 2012 until the early part of 2013, with his torn ACL ligament and knee injury forcing him to take leave for the rest of the season. We saw Yannick again, in top shape, at FISE Montpellier last May. Obviously confident in his riding after successful surgery and rehabilitation, he is a true mountain bike professional who works hard so he can live his dreams.
Yannick shares with us his thoughts and insights about his serious injuries and consequent rehabilitation in his new Thibaut Grevet Red Bull Media House video, “Yannick Granieri: Recovery Road Part 1”. This is his story...
We are always humbled every time we watch Lezyne Ambassador and Scottish bike trials legend Danny MacAskill ride in his unassuming yet explosive way! Danny makes everything look easy, especially in this new video that celebrates two more fruitful years of friendship and seriously epic bike trials riding. Danny takes riding to an amazing level, post injuries, and it looks like there is no stopping him in this showcase of talent, skill, and love for the sport. Lezyne was there to document his memorable trip.
In “Danny MacAskill in Taiwan – powered by Lezyne”, this brilliant rider explores beautiful Taiwan’s parks and streets, enjoying a cultural experience that enables him to play around with his trials riding style on new and interesting landscapes of old and new.
This new video shows Danny in his first ever trip to Taiwan. “Taichung is a really cool city. The architecture here is pretty amazing, every single park…Just built to be interesting!” Just under 5 minutes, this new video features something that is hard to believe, considering the level of riding he does – Danny looks like he is getting even better every time!
We never get tired of watching him ride…Now it’s your turn to be amazed. We hope you like the result of weeks of planning, scouting for locations, and basically just having fun with the genius that is Danny MacAskill… Enjoy the new video, and don’t forget to share your reactions/comments here!
If you're someone who likes to ride at night, you know how convenient it is to have a compact and powerful light with a concentrated beam. A white light on the handlebars, and/or on your helmet, certainly makes it a lot easier. An LED light becomes more convenient and valuable on the road if you do not have to "route" another cable to the frame. When you need power that goes straight to the battery pack to be fixed on the front triangle, or at best on the bottle cage (as long as our bikes are fitted with them), a system like the Lezyne MEGA DRIVE definitely meets the needs of those looking for great performance in a compact body that is relatively lightweight."
Bicycles and headlights have had a relationship as fraught with unhappiness as Liz Taylor and each of her last 14 or 15 husbands. Cyclists have suffered weak lights with no staying power but were easily mounted, weak lights with plenty of staying power that were difficult to mount, powerful lights that had no staying power but were difficult to mount and occasionally powerful lights with great staying power that took forever to mount and ate up a bottle cage and weighed more than a regulation bowling ball.
As a set of choices, they all left plenty to be desired.
I don’t mind admitting that my core philosophy states that if the sun is not yet up or has gone down for the day, I need to be off the bike. Call that a bias if you like, but I couch it terms of self-preservation because if something doesn’t get me in the dark on the road, I still have plenty to fear when my wife looks at me and asks (in her most disdainful tone), “You were riding where? When?
But riding at the margins of the day, when I’m least likely to be missed means that this time of year, it’s a good idea to have some lights to try to notify less than fully awake drivers that I, too, am on the road and would like to survive the experience. A guy can dream, right?
Get ready girly-men, it is time for Art’s Cyclery to PUMP… you up! If you are still using a hand pump to inflate your bike tires, you have obviously been skipping your cerebral push-ups. Drop the pump, drop and give me 20 and then start using Co2 to inflate those tires. Check out the video below and we’ll show you how.
Getting a flat blows… but using Co2 makes the best of a bad situation and gets you back on the road quickly and easily. This of course minimizes the chance that you will throw an epic tantrum like the one in the video above. To minimize frustration and minimize the number of new wheels you will have to buy, check out the awesome selection of Co2 inflators at ArtsCyclery.com! If this video came a little too late, we have you covered with a new set of wheels too.
And for those that don’t get the reference, check out some vintage SNL goodness.

Lezyne Ambassador Cedric Gracia took part in the first World Series Enduro Race in Punta Ala, Italy where he shot the first installment of his new Through My Eyes video series. Through My Eyes gives CG fans the chance to follow and take part in the crazy world that The Sergeant plays in. WARNING – He is French, and clothing was optional during filming!
Saddle bags are a useful accessory but can often ruin the look of a nice bike; a baggy material with velcro straps wrapped around multiple surfaces. The Lezyne Pod Caddy does away with straps and baggyness, creating a saddle rail mounted hard shell case.
In-line with what I've come to expect from Lezyne, it's a stylish and well made bag that will not look out of place on a high value bike. I was looking forward to testing it on my Giant TCR, as with its aero post, fitting a standard saddle bag proved cumbersome and I also wanted something I could easily remove when racing. Unfortunately the Pod didn't fit either: the rail mounting interfered with the seat-post clamp.
Granted the TCR has quite a bulky rail clamp but it is something to consider when buying on of these. I have my saddle on the limit of set-back, offering the maximum amount of rail to the Pod and still couldn't get it on. You need to have a good amount of horizontal rail area for the clamp as you won't be able clip the Pod on if it's on the curve at all.
So, with it not fitting my road bike I mounted it on the mountain bike. I decided it would offer a better test for stability of the Pod anyway, getting rocked around off-road.
With only support from the top, you might be concerned that it would wobble or become loose. Thanks to a well designed and solid support this isn't the case however. Fully loaded with a tube, multi-tool and a few other bits, the Pod is still held fast and was not noticeable during riding. The bag clips into the mount with a confident 'clunk' and isn't come to come out until you want it to. The Pod is a EVA foam moulded construction with Nylon cover and is water resistant, certainly more resistant than most soft material bags but after forgetting to take it off during a bike cleaning I can say that it isn't going to keep things 100% dry.
Onto the main sell of any saddle bag, the Pod's design makes it one of the easiest to load and unload from. A zipper runs around three sides of the case, allowing it to open like a clam shell. You then have full access so you're not removing everything to get the change that has fallen to the bottom at the cafe stop. A netted partition stops things falling out when the lower opens. The zip also features a large finger loop to avoid any fumbling around with cold hands.
We had both the S and M sizes on test and the difference in size isn't massive but with the M i'd say you can get two road tubes in rather than one (or one MTB tube in my case), along with a tyre lever and multi-tool. It's a good size - not too big to look odd perched under the saddle - and for an extra £2 probably the size I'd go for. We also had both the black and the white colours and I'd say the black is subtle - as you want from a saddle bag - but is purely taste.
I really like the Lezyne Caddy Pod, I've used a few saddle bags in my time and reckon this is the most stylish, whilst remaining practical. That makes it more of shame that I couldn't fit it on my race bike, whether you'll have the saddle rail access is something to consider before buying. The S and M retail at £23.99 and £25.99 respectively and although there are cheaper options I don't feel it over priced for what is a tidier saddle bag option for most that isn't going to cause any paint rub.
Lezyne’s new digital floor pumps are available in standard high volume pump in Sport, CNC, Alloy and Steel Digital pumps. At the moment, they’re all high pressure (read: road tire) models, plus one for shocks.
Yes, a floor pump for suspension. It’s not the first time someone’s done it. It pumps 1/3 the air of a standard floor pump and goes to 300psi. Really, it’s aimed at team mechanics and others that have to set up a lot of forks and shocks. There’s wood handle and the pump head has a dual disconnect that lets you remove the head from the hose to disconnect without losing air pressure. Then you thread the head off the shock. An inline pressure release valve lets you bleed air a little at a time to set it just right. Retail is $109.99.
The other digital floor pumps start at $69.99, and all have a gauge is accurate to +/-3%.
Get pumped for some cool lights and tools after the break…

Lezyne Digital Pump Guage, Danny Mac Signature Series Tools
Renowned for their clean designs and attention to detail, Lezyne had a myriad of pumps, tools, and lights on display. One item that stood out was their new digital gauge option that is now available for their current pump lineup, with a claimed accuracy of plus or minus three percent. The gauge will add $30 to the price of a pump, or can be purchased as an aftermarket upgrade for $50. Items from Lezyne's Danny MacAskill signature series were also on display, including the Block multitool, which has a CNC-machined body and nickel plated 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and T25 bits. MSRP: $24.99. Another piece in the signature series collection is the MacAskill Travel Drive pump, which is designed to take up as little room as possible while still remaining a fully functional floor pump. CNC machined aluminum is used for the handle, base, and piston to keep the weight down. MSRP: $99.99
The Lezyne M Caddy Quick Release is a very neat and useful saddle-bag.
Lezyne have a range of small bags that fit under your saddle, including this M Caddy QR. The M stands for medium, and the QR stands for quick release. It's perfectly sized for carrying all the kit you need for a day out - and you can attach it to your bike (and take it off again) very quickly indeed.
Most saddle-packs attach to the saddle rails with straps and Velcro, but as this Caddy is the quick release version there's a plastic bracket that bolts to the saddle rails, and the bag has a small plastic socket on top, which clips onto (and off) the bracket in a matter of moments.
The clip holds the bag tight, so it doesn't need a second strap to go round the seat post. It also means the bag hangs out behind the saddle, rather than directly under it, which is especially useful for anyone that finds some saddle-bags rub against the backs of their thighs when cycling.
There's plenty of room in the bag for a spare inner-tube, plus levers, patches, CO2 canister, keys, money and an energy bar. If you keep your food in your pocket (and you're a pessimist when it comes to punctures), there's just enough room for two lightweight tubes and two canisters, plus levers and patches.
The main part of the bag is made from tough nylon fabric. There are three internal pockets (made from softer neoprene, so slightly padded) which hold tyre levers and other bits of kit to prevent chafing the inner tube. There's also a very handy external pocket designed to carry a multi-tool.
The zip and access flap at the back of the bag are water resistant, but not waterproof, which means you'll still need to dry out your stuff after a ride in the rain.
Other features include a loop of tape for clipping a rear light onto, but it's too thin to hold the light firmly, meaning the light shines downwards rather than straight back out towards approaching cars. Other manufacturers such as Topeak use much thicker tape on the back of their saddle-packs which hold rear lights in a much better position.
The M Caddy QR's full retail price is £21.99 but you can find it for just under £20 at your LBS or the usual on-line stores. It's usually a couple of quid more than the standard M Caddy with the Velcro straps that go round saddle rails and seat post.
