GPS
 
How do I turn on my Lezyne GPS device?
Press and hold the power button for 2 seconds (top-left button on Power and Super, and left button on Mini).
How do I start a ride?
Press the start button on the lower right side to begin recording a ride.
How do I end a ride?
Press and hold the lap button for 2 seconds to stop a ride. Then, follow the command prompts on the screen and use the up and down buttons on the right side to pause or stop the ride, then to save or discard the ride.
My GPS device is plugged in and charging, buy why is it not showing up on my computer?
If you are not using the supplied Lezyne USB cable then the cable being used may not be a power and data transfer USB cable. Use another USB cable that is capable of doing both power and data transfer.
Do the GPS devices have mapping or navigation?
No maps or directions are displayed on the device. Lezyne GPS computers simply record your ride data with a GPS signal and are not meant for navigation.
Are the GPS devices waterproof?
All the GPS devices are tested to the IPX7 standard for waterproofness so they can handle extremely wet days on the bike.
How durable is a GPS device?
All Lezyne products are 1-meter drop and durability tested to insure proper function during extreme riding conditions or when things go south. But it is still recommended to treat your GPS device with care.
Can the Mini GPS connect to Bluetooth or Ant+?
No, the Mini GPS does not connect to Bluetooth or any other wireless sensors.
How do I upload my rides to Strava?
There are three ways to upload rides to Strava.
  • On the "Upload" page of our GPS Root website, and with the device plugged into your computer, you can choose to also upload to Strava by following the command prompt. This can also be set to automatically upload new rides.
  • When the device is plugged into your computer, you can upload rides directly to Strava through their website by finding the “Activities” folder on the device and selecting your rides.
  • When viewing the ride summary of a ride that’s already been uploaded to our GPS Root website there is a “Share” feature that allows you to push the ride over to Strava as well as share on Facebook or Twitter.
Can I upload directly from my phone to Strava?
The Power GPS and Super GPS are capable of uploading rides from the device to your phone via the Lezyne GPS Ally app (available for both iOS and Android smartphones). Once the ride is uploaded it can then be pushed to Strava.
Does the GPS device work with other training sites?
Yes, if the sites accept .fit file formats then they can be uploaded to that site.
How accurate is the GPS elevation reading?
The Mini GPS, Power GPS and Super GPS have the latest GPS chip technology (Power and Super use both US and Russian satellites) and advanced GPS programming to consistently read within 5 – 10 meters of a fixed elevation point (results may vary from device to device).
Do the GPS devices have a barometer?
Our GPS devices do not use a barometer. We have the latest GPS chip technology (Power and Super use both US and Russian satellites) and advanced GPS programming to consistently read within 5 – 10 meters of a fixed elevation point. While barometers can boost accuracy, they are weather sensitive and require regular calibration. With the reliability and simplicity of our optimized GPS system we concluded that a barometer wasn’t necessary at this time.
Is the mount compatible with 35mm handlebars?
The standard O-ring mount will work for 35mm handlebars.
How do I update the software on my GPS?
Updates for the GPS software are available at www.lezyne.com or www.lezyne.com/gpsroot in the "support" pull down menu. Also, when you upload ride files to GPS Root it will automatically know if there is a software update available for your GPS device.
If I start riding before a GPS signal is acquired, will it track my ride?
You must wait for a GPS signal to be acquired in order for all ride data to be recorded correctly.
How do I hard reset my Lezyne GPS?
Press and hold the power button and menu button at the same time for about 30 seconds until the screen goes blank. Then press the power button for 2 seconds to turn the device back on.
Can I charge my GPS with an external battery pack while it is recording?
No, the device cannot record a ride and charge at the same time.
Will my GPS work under thick tree cover?
Yes, but it can affect signal strength and will vary depending on the tree density. To improve this, we use a highly sensitive GPS chip and optimized the recording to maintain a connection in low signal areas.
How do I know if my power meter is compatible with Lezyne GPS?
The Power GPS can pair with Bluetooth Smart power meters, and the Super GPS can pair with Bluetooth Smart or Ant+ power meters.
Will your GPS work with my current cadence sensor or heart rate monitor?
The Power GPS will pair with Bluetooth Smart sensors and monitors, and the Super GPS will pair with Bluetooth and Ant+ sensors and monitors.
I’m paired with an external speed sensor, but why is my speed not accurate?
The wheel size calculation may not be set to the correct size of your wheel. This can be corrected in the menu settings.
How do I pair my power meter to my GPS?
In the GPS device’s menu, select BTLE or ANT+ and select Enable All. Then scroll to Power and select Enable to start the pairing with available devices. Each power meter may have a specific way to start the pairing function, so you'll need to follow the manufacturers instructions on how to enable the power meter.
Why doesn’t my GPS device automatically update the time zone when I travel?
This feature may not always be accurate since time zone boundaries can change. However, we may include this in the future. Furthermore, even if the time zone on the GPS device isn’t correct, our GPS Root website will automatically update it in your ride summary once it’s uploaded.
What is GPS and how does it work?
It’s an incredibly complex technology that only our in-house computer engineer can understand. Unfortunately it’s impossible for him to explain, but he did mention that it involves a lot of “magic and hamsters.”
Is the Lezyne GPS mount the same as Garmin’s mount?
No—while similar in looks, it’s an overall better mounting system. It features our “X-Lock” design, which is a much more secure connection. The GPS device is inserted at a 45-degree angle and then pressed down and twisted until it “locks” into place. Rigorous testing has proven it to be a superior and safer mount. It’s also unique in that it can’t be mounted sideways—no matter what position the mount is in, the computer can always be mounted forward.
Can weather affect the GPS signal?
Dense clouds are known to degrade the GPS signal on any GPS device. However, we have the latest GPS chip technology (Power and Super use both US and Russian satellites) and advanced GPS programming to help maintain the best possible connection.
If I have a cadence, speed and heart rate sensor paired with my Lezyne GPS and record a ride on a stationary trainer, will the GPS Root website still display my ride data even though I haven’t moved?
Yes it will show the data that it recorded on our website. There will obviously be no route on the map, or elevation profile, but you will still be able to analyze the rest of your ride metrics that were recorded from your external devices.
Can I take my Lezyne GPS device apart and modify it to give me faster times on Strava?
This might be possible, but it'll void your warranty. Furthermore, USADA and WADA have created a "Digital Doping" division that will perform random testing on cycling computers to check for any illicit device "enhancement."
Will the Mini GPS survive being eaten by a domestic animal?
Due to legal reasons we were not able to verify the Mini GPS’s digestion resistance (DR) with domestic animals. However, one of our engineers has volunteered to ingest one for testing purposes. We are still waiting for the final test results before we can give the Mini GPS a “passing” DR inspection.
 
LED Lights
 
Which Lezyne LED light should I buy?
If you are planning on doing SERIOUS night riding, we would recommend the Performance line of lights. For commuting and night riding, or if you want a little extra light on the road/trail, we'd suggest something from the commute line. And for basic safety ("be seen") lights, look at our Femto Drive in both Front and Rear varieties. Our Buyer's Guide will be able to help you out.
Buyer's Guide
What's the difference between the lights?
In an attempt to simplify things, we put our lights into different categories based on exactly what type of riding you would be doing. "Performance" suggests serious night riding on the road and mountain, "Commute" suggests lower lumens while still being enough to see what is in front of you and go for long rides in the dark, and "Safety" suggests that you want the bare minimum in money and lumens.....you simply need to be noticed and not break the law.
Do I have to use your USB cable to charge my Lezyne light?
You do not "have" to use the Lezyne cable to charge the light, though we have specified our lights to charge in a very specific environment and using a non-Lezyne USB cable will void your warranty.
Can I charge just a Lezyne battery with a wall charger? Can I use an external battery charger to charge my extra batteries?
Lezyne has 3 models of lights that have removable batteries: Mini Drive XL, Power Drive XL, and Super Drive XL. These batteries can be completely removed and installed on a wall charger for charging as well. Lezyne sells an "International Charging Kit" to work in a number of electrical situations. The Mega and Deca Drive batteries can only be charged in the light.
What temperature can I use my LED light
You can use your LED in temperatures between what would be commonly referred to as "freezing cold" and "uncomfortably warm". If you want specifics, for charging your LEDs, they need to be in temperatures between 32 and 112F and for discharge they need to be between 68-140F.
Can I use my lights when it is really cold?
If you are riding in temperatures below freezing, you might consider not using Lezyne lights. If you want to be really smart about it, you might consider even staying inside your shelter with a warm cup of tea because going outside in that weather sounds like a bad idea.
Can I use my Lezyne LED as a handheld flashlight?
Using Lezyne lights as handheld flashlights is not recommended in any situation for the simple fact that you are moving at much slower speeds and not providing much (cooling) airflow to keep the LEDs at reasonable temperatures.
Do your LEDs have a race mode?
Lezyne has Race Mode for all the Performance XL LED light and including the Macro and Micro lights. With the light turned off if you hold the power button for five (5) seconds the light will turn on and flash once indicating that the light has switched modes. Once in Race Mode you will have two (2) modes the highest lumen output and the lowest lumen output. The light will stay in Race Mode even after turning the light off. To return to the normal mode to get all modes including flash mode turn the light off. Hold the power button down for five (5) seconds till the light turns on and flashes.
Can I use any USB wall outlet adapter to charge my Lezyne LED?
Lezyne recommends using Lezyne International 2A USB Charging Unit wall chargers for our lights, however, other wall chargers with USB plugs will also work.
Why should I use the Lezyne international USB charging kit to charge my Lezyne LEDs?
Lezyne develops its products as an all-inclusive package so that we can maximize performance in any given environment. If we build every component of our products, we have control over how we want each piece to act as part of the whole and using another company's product is not guaranteed to work in the same way.
What size batteries are used in Lezyne LEDs?
The Lezyne Mini Drive XL uses LIR 123A batteries, the Power Drive XL and Super Drive XL use LIR 18650 batteries, and the Mega Drive uses a proprietary 2-part battery pack. The Femto Drive (front and rear) uses CR2032 batteries. All Lezyne batteries are available separately. The Macro, Micro, Hecto, Zecto, and KTV batteries cannot be replaced.
How many degrees of horizontal yaw does the mounting bracket have?
The mounting bracket has about 7 degrees of horizontal yaw to each side. This was designed to allow you to mount your LED in almost any position on your bike while still allowing you to focus your light in a central direction.
How long does it take to fully charge my light?
Charge time is dependent on what light you own, what type of USB charging port you use and whether or not your light supports 1 amp or 2 amp charging. You can find this information under the "Spec" tab on the product page of the light. Lights that use a 2 cell LIR battery (Mega/Deca) require 8-10 hours to charge via a 1 amp USB port or 6-8 hours with a 2 amp USB port. Lights that use a single cell LIR 18650 battery charge about 4 hours via a 1 amp USB port or 3 hours when using a 2 amp USB port. Lights that use a LIR 123A battery take about 2 hours with a 1 amp USB port and may not support a 2 amp USB recharging.
What is the life of a lithium ion battery? How many cycles will it take?
This is a question that most LED manufactureres receive and there is not a tried and true answer. Literally, the best answer that we can give for "How many cycles will a li-ion battery take?" is "Between 100 and 1000." There is SO much variance and so many factors that go into the light's use. For example, it depends on how often the light is used, how often the battery is charged and recharged, if it's charged off of a half full cycle or not, what temperatures the light is run in usually, and any other hundreds of cofactors. Short answer: 500 cycles until the battery reaches half capacity.
Will the battery get a "memory" if I recharge it too soon?
No this is a problem with NiCd rechargeable batteries. All of our batteries are lithium ion and do not have this issue.
Do you have to run the battery down until it is dead before recharging?
You don't have to run it to "dead" before recharging the LED, however, you should try and run the battery from fully charged to fully discharged with every cycle in order to ensure longer battery life.
Why should I use Lezyne branded batteries?
Lezyne batteries should be used with Lezyne lights for a number of reasons. First and foremost, we source our own batteries, which ensures HIGH quality pieces in every LED and batteries that run and last as claimed (numerous battery manufacturers greatly skew their battery runtimes, voltages, etc...) We also build and test all our lights to work as an all-inclusive package where each part of the product is specifically designed towork with another part of the product...changing parts can and will throw off the performance of our LEDs.
How do you test your LED lights?
We test all of our lights using a lab callibrated Integrating Sphere.
What is an integrated sphere?
An Integrating Sphere is an instrument with a highly reflective interior that reflects the light into a port to measure the lumen output of your light. The port connects to a fiberoptic cable which connects to a sensor to measure the lumen output. The sphere measures ALL of your light output rather than a lux meter that measures a certain point of the light, giving a more consistent and honest reading. You can also measure the lumen output overtime to see if the light has a constant lumen output or if it dims overtime. Learn more and watch us test our Micro Drive with this video.
 
Floor Pumps
 
What is the difference between the flip chuck and the speed chuck?
Our gold colored flip chuck is compatible with both Presta and Schrader valves. It is a thread on style of chuck that is designed with ABS button (Air Bleed System) that prevents the removal of valve cores. Our Speed chuck is a press on style chuck that does not require you to thread on. This chuck is truly designed for thread-less valve stems. It can be used on threaded valves except after a few uses the threads will tear the o-ring inside the head of your speed chuck eventually rendering it useless.
What is the difference between the speed chuck and the slip chuck?
Quite simply, the difference between the Speed chuck and the Slip chuck is material. Our slip chuck is all CNC-Machined aluminum where our speed chuck is composed of Carbon Matrix plastic. Also the big difference is that our Slip chuck is designed to be rebuilt. When purchased it comes with six replaceable o-rings. Both of these chucks are “Press or Push” on style of chucks. These chucks are truly designed for thread-less valve stems, however; both can be used on threaded valves. The only issue with doing this is that the threads will slightly tear the ID o-ring in the head of the chucks. That is why we designed our slip chuck to be rebuilt and sell it with replacement o-rings.
Do you sell extra o-rings for the speed chuck and slip chuck?
Our Slip Chuck comes with 6 replacement o-rings as standard. These o-rings will keep you and your Slip chuck in working order for many cycles of use. Our Speed chucks, which come standard with all Flip Chuck equipped pumps, do not come with replacement o-rings. However, extra o-rings are included in our Tackle Box, which your local Lezyne Pro Shop will have on hand, and can be purchased accordingly. If you are still having trouble finding replacement o-rings, please contact Warranty@Lezyne.com and we will be happy in further assisting you.
Why do Lezyne pumps thread onto a valve?
Lezyne designed all of their pumps with a "thread-on" connection in order to ensure a proper seal between our Flex-Hose and the valve stem itself. This is done to ensure accurate pressure readings and proper tire inflation. We also designed this for ease-of-use. When out on the road or on the trail, didn't want you to worry about the head connection failing/slipping. We all know that this can be rather frustrating and we decided to save you the hassle from the get-go.
Are your pumps rebuildable?
Our pumps are 100% serviceable and rebuild able. Gauge issue? Compression issue? Leak in your hose or swivel? Issue with your chuck? Any of these can be fixed in a matter of minutes! If you experience any of these issues please return to your original place of purchase and they will be able to assist you in getting the replacement parts you need. All of these issues are covered by warranty if you are still within your warranty period. If located within the United States please send warranty@lezyne.com a email with your issues and we will be happy in assisting you to a solution. Here are a couple videos we put out to help walk our customers through the repairs at home.

What is ABS?
“ABS” stands for “Air Bleed System.” This is a system that Lezyne developed last year into their product line. From our customers we found that when using high pressures our thread on chuck would sometimes remove the valve core from your valve stem. In order to fight this, we developed “ABS.” When hooked up to a Presta valve with the desired PSI in your tire. Pressing the ABS button will release the back pressure just within the pump system to relieve the pressure from the valve. This takes all the back pressure off your valve so when it comes time for unthreading you do not remove your core. Pressing this button when hooked up to a Schrader valve will release the pressure within the tube, not within the pump. This is designed to be able to dial your psi in before removing your chuck.
Will the ABS flip chuck work on my older pump?
All of our new ABS Flip Chucks thread into the exact same style of connection as the older Thread Chucks. This means that if you buy an ABS Flip Chuck, installing it onto your "older" pump will be a piece of cake.
My gauge is broken, can I replace it?
Yes! All Lezyne pumps are 100% serviceable and rebuildable.
Here is a PDF on how to remove your gauge.
All new gauges come with the directions to install it! It is a very simple fix!
Here is a video to help walk you through the repair.
Do Lezyne floor pumps work with valve extenders?
Lezyne's floor pumps do work with valve extenders. This also goes for all of our hand pumps. So whichever pump you might be running, all of our pumps will work with any valve extender that you want to run with.
Can I replace my hose?
You can purchase and replace the hose on your floor pump. It is a relatively easy fix that is recommended if your hose is what might be called "beyond its years". Because the hose contains up to 220psi, having a good hose installed is crucial.
Will Lezyne pumps work with removeable valve cores?
Some users have experienced issues with valve cores unthreading upon pump removal. There are a few reasons why this might happen and there is more than one solution.
My Lezyne pump keeps removing my valve cores, how do I make it stop?
Lezyne has a few solutions for you. Many inner tube manufactures do not sufficiently tighten valve cores upon assembly. First check that your valve cores are properly tightened. Do not over tighten the pump onto the valve. This could result in pinching down on the valve core more than the rest of the valve. Our slip fit chuck does not interfere with valve cores. Our main way to fight this issue is our ABS feature that is built into our flip chucks. When hooked up to a Presta valve with the desired PSI in your tire. Pressing the ABS button will release the back pressure just within the pump system to relieve the pressure from the valve. This takes all the back pressure off your valve so when it comes time for unthreading you do not remove your core.
Do your pumps work with disc wheels?
In conjunction with our Floor Pumps, the Speed Chuck utilizes a 90 degree bend in its design so that it can fit in disc wheels.
What is the difference between the gold and the red ABS flip chucks?
The Gold ABS Chuck is designed for our HP Floor Drives while the Red ABS Flip Chuck, being designed in higher volume applications, needed to use different parts to use the higher volume air flow.
Can I user my dirt floor drive to inflate the tubes on my road bike?
Your Dirt Floor Drive will inflate your road bike tires/tubes, however, not only will the Gauge NOT go past a 70 PSI reading, doing so might break your gauge.
Why do you offer HP and HV floor pumps?
Lezyne offers both an HP and HV version of every pump for both ROAD and MOUNTAIN BIKE applications. "HP" stands for "High Pressure". Road bike tires are thin, low volume, and require higher pressures to run well (anywhere between 90 and 160 PSI). Our HP pumps are designed to make it easier to pump up road bike tires to those pressures by using smaller pump barrels. "HV" stands for "High Volume". Most mountain bike tires these days are run between 2.0" and 3.0" wide. Requiring so much air to fill up these tires, we developed our HV pumps with bigger pump barrels to push more air into the tires, making inflation of mountain bike tires faster and easier.
Which floor pump can I use to inflate both my road and mountain bike tubes?
If you had to choose one pump, I would suggest going with one from the high pressure lineup. You may not be able to read lower pressures as accurately as with a high volume pump, but it can inflate both tire types up to proper riding pressure.
What is the difference between the floor pumps?
Without going into detail, most of the differences are in the materials and features. Generally the higher end models are composed of all CNC aluminum or steel. Our sport floor models are composed up of composite matrix material for the base. Another main difference is High pressure (Road) vs. High volume (Mountain). Lastly of course Aesthetics! If you have any questions between models please email Info@lezyne.com and we will be happy in assisting you to a solution.
Do you have an adapter to connect your flip thread chuck to an air compressor?
We do not have any adaptors for air compressors. Our Dirt Floor Drive are so effective in High Volume applications that they eliminate the need for air compressors (to seat tubeless tires) completely.
What type of lube do I use on my Lezyne pump?
For floor pumps any kind of thick petroleum based grease will work. DON'T USE LIQUID OILS. Be sure not to over-grease the pump, it only needs enough to coat the surfaces, not so much that it makes the o-ring stuck on the piston. Take care not to get any grease into the one way valve at the bottom of the barrel, it can cause the pump to leak back through the barrel under pressure. For hand pumps a silicone grease is best, but a thick petroleum based grease could be used as a substitute. Same rules apply; don't over grease and don't get any grease in the one-way valve.
 
Hand Pumps
 
What is the difference between HV and HP?
The main difference between HP (High Pressure) and HV (High Volume) hand pumps is the barrel diameter. The HP hand pumps have a smaller barrel diameter that pushes less air volume than the HV pumps, but allows you to achieve a higher pressure. Typically you want a HP hand pump for "high pressure" tires ranging from 0psi-220psi. This mostly means skinny tires, but some people have wider tires that require high pressure as well. As you probably guessed, our HV pumps work better on “High Volume” tires that require lower pressures. For example these would be for fat bike and mountain bike tires ranging from 0-70psi. Having an HV pump will allow you to achieve a more dialed psi reading in low pressures. HP pumps will inflate large tires and vice versa: HV pumps will inflate tires to high pressure. The reason we designed two different pumps is for efficiency and simplicity. With anything you own, if it breaks you want the right tool or tools to fix it! Our two different styles of pumps will get the job done in whatever case.
Which hand pump should I buy?
That's a good question. It's difficult to answer without knowing what type of bike you would be using this for. Generally if riding a road bike or a commuter, you will want to look at any of our high pressure models. These pumps range from 0psi-120psi. If riding a mountain bike or style of fat bike you will want to look at any of our High Volume models. These pumps range from 0psi-90psi and deliver a higher volume of air into the tire then our high pressure pumps. To have one-on-one help picking out the right pump please send an email to info@lezyne.com or please go to your local Lezyne dealer. You can also check out our online Buyer’s guide that will pin point exactly what style of product you’re looking for.
Buyer's Guide
Can my HV pump work on my road bike?
A high volume pump will "work" on your road bike. The issue with using a high volume pump on a high pressure tire is the force required to get the air into the tire. Most people aren't strong enough to get the tire up to a proper riding pressure. In a pinch most people could probably get it up to a high enough pressure to carefully ride home, but be warned, riding on an improperly inflated tire is not safe and could result in something terrible happening to the bike or the rider. It is all about efficiently and simplicity when pumping up a tire.
Can my HP pump work on my mountain bike?
A high pressure pump will certainly work on your mountain bike, provided that the pump in question is compatible with the valves used on your mountain bike. Most mountain bikes have high volume tires. The main reason we do not recommend the use of high pressure pumps on high volume tires is that it will take longer to get the tires up to riding pressure. Also when using a high pressure pump on lower psi ranges you will not receive as accurate of a reading. Our High volume pumps read from 0psi-70psi where our high pressure models range 0psi-220psi.
Can the pen gauge work on the small Lezyne pumps?
The Pen Gauge can work on Small Lezyne pumps, however it will not store inside of the handle as the normal Flex Hoses do. The Pen Gauge will only store in medium or large size hand pumps.
Why doesn't the pen gauge come with an ABS chuck?
Unfortunately there currently isn't a way to incorporate an ABS chuck onto the pen gauge in a way that will still fit inside a hand pump. The ABS chuck is compatible with the Pen Gauge, you just can not hide it in the pump.
How many strokes does it take to inflate a tire?
I won't pretend to know how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop. This is something that truly depends on to many variables. Most bike shops should let you try out a pump before you buy it. It's a silly measurement anyway since the fewer pump strokes required to inflate your tires, the more difficult each stroke will be. For various reasons, it is impossible for me to tell you how many pump strokes it will take to inflate your tires. Me doing so will most likely result in a large amount of error. Some of the variables I would need to know to get an exact measurement are: Tire size, tire volume, rim width, inner tube thickness, desired pressure, pump size, pumping technique, pumping speed, the weather, and current elevation. If you wish for more assistance in your exact case please send an email to info@lezyne.com and we will be happy in assisting you to a solution.
Can the road drive really reach a max pressure of 160PSI?
The pump will go as high as it's rated, you just have to be strong enough to get it there. If you absolutely need your tire to be at 160psi (11 bar) I suggest using a high pressure floor pump or our Micro Drive HP/HPG. Remember, hand pumps are primarily for getting you enough pressure to get you home.
What is the actual rated pressure for your pumps?
The claimed pressure is the same as the "actual" pressure. The long answer is that it depends. The rated pressure is what the pump is known to be capable of. The actual pressure is what the user is capable of. If you weigh 90 pounds, you probably won't be able to use a HAND PUMP to get a tire up to 90 psi. The limiting factor will be strength. Lezyne pumps will get you up to riding pressure. What that pressure is depends more on how strong you are.
What is the difference between the road drive and pressure drive pumps?
Barrel Diameter: The main difference between the Road Drive and Pressure Drive hand pumps is the diameter of the barrels. The Road Drive barrel has a slightly smaller diameter which makes getting up to higher pressures a bit easier on the arms. The Road Drive also has a full Aluminum piston head where the Pressure Drive has a carbon matrix piston head. It also should be noted that the Flex Hose that comes with the Road Drive is only compatible with Presta valves. This ABS Flex Hose has both threaded and a slip-fit Presta valve connection. The Pressure Drive is acquired with our dual ABS flex hose that is compatible with both Presta and Schrader type valves. For Mounting: While both pumps come with brackets for mounting to bottle cage bolts, only the Road Drive comes with an aluminum version. The pump bracket for the Road Drive is only designed to hold the barrel of the pump, so the pump also comes with a barrel sleeve to keep the pump closed when not in use. The mount for the Pressure Drive is made from Composite Matrix and is designed to hold the handle and the barrel of the pump. For Size Difference: The Road Drive is available in Medium and Large sizes while the Pressure Drive is available in Small and Medium sizes. For Colors: Both the Road Drive and the Pressure Drive are made out of aluminum, however they are available in different colors. The Road Drive is available in Black and Silver anodized colors and in a White powder coat finish. The Pressure Drive is available in Black, Red, Gold, and Blue anodized colors (Blue unavailable in U.S.).
What is the difference between the ABS flex hose and the ABS speed flex hose?
The Dual ABS Flex Hose has a threaded connection on both sides. One side of it is designed for Presta valves and the other side is developed for Schrader valves. The ABS Speed Flex hose comes on the Road Drive and Carbon Road Drive hand pumps only and is designed for use with Presta valves only. One side of the hose is a NON-THREADED slip-fit connection for speed and ease of inflation, while the other side is a threaded Presta connection for ensured stability.
Will the ABS flex hose work with my older Lezyne pump?
Our new ABS Flex Hose, though it does come with the new ABS feature, threads in and out of hand pumps the exact same way that it used to. No change in size or shape has been made to our hoses. The short answer is: YES. P.S. ABS Flex Hoses are available separately for purchase if you're looking to upgrade your older hand pump.
Do your hand pumps work on valve extenders?
Lezyne hand pumps utilize a threaded connection in which the Flex Hose threads directly onto the valve. If your valve extenders have threaded tips which accept a standard plastic dust cap, then your Lezyne pump will work with your extenders. If your valve extenders are smooth and do not have a threaded tip, there are 2 options which you can choose from: Purchase Lezyne Valve Extenders which have threaded tips compatible with Lezyne's threaded Flex Hose. Or you can Upgrade your pump with Lezyne's ABS Speed Flex Hose which has both a Presta threaded connection and a Presta Slip-Fit connection. This ABS flex hose comes standard on both the Carbon Road Drive and Road Drive hand pumps. You can purchase this upgrade directly through your local Lezyne retailer or directly though Lezyne USA if located within the United States.
What is the difference between the hand pumps?
The major distinguisher between every hand pump in our line is materials used. To set a dramatic example, I will explain the major difference between our Carbon Road Drive (100 dollar) and our HP Drive (29 dollar). Our Carbon Road Drive is made of: Full carbon barrel (for weight) CNC end caps and internal parts (for strength, weight, and durability). Our HP Drive has a barrel and shaft that are made up of Aluminum where the handle, end caps, and piston head are composed of Carbon Matrix. Some things to consider when purchasing a hand pump are: What type of bike are you using this on (road or mountain bike)? How often will you be riding/using your pump? What types of conditions will you are riding in? To pin point the best product exactly for you, you will want to check out our Buyer’s Guide!

What is the difference between the two shock pumps?
Our Shock Drive is designed for those mountain bike riders who like to take a shock pump with them on their rides in order to fine tune and adjust their suspension on the fly. Our Shock Digital Drive is a full size floor pump and designed to be a "shop" tool or for at home use. Our shock digital drive is built to outlast the everlasting abuse of bike mechanics on their tools. It also comes equipped with a braided hose for durability.
Why does the shop shock drive have an oil filled gauge?
The Shop Shock Drive was designed to endure the rigors of everyday life in a bike shop. The gauge is filled with oil to protect it from damage while moving around in your tool box. Besides, it looks cool!
What is your lightest hand pump?
Our lightest pump is the Carbon Pressure Drive, and it weighs in at 62g. The next closest pump is the Carbon Road Drive 2 at 89g.
What is your smallest hand pump?
Although the Shock Drive is the smallest pump that Lezyne makes, it is not capable of inflating a tire. It is designed to only inflate shocks. Lezyne offers both HP and HV pumps in the Small size. These pumps measure about 7.5in/19cm in length. The Small High-Volume (mountain) Pumps we offer are: Alloy Drive S (170mm), Tech Drive S (170mm), HV Drive S (170mm) and our Sport Drive HV (170mm). For High-Pressure Pumps (road) we offer: Carbon Drive Lite (170mm), Pressure Drive S (170mm), Tech Drive HP S (170mm), HP Drive S (170mm) and lastly our Sport Drive HP (170mm).
Do you make a frame pump?
While we often receive requests to make an older, more traditional style "frame pump", it is extremely difficult to make a pump that meets Lezyne quality and performance standards while at the same time fits the wide variety of complex frame geometries and tube shapes of modern bike frames. Therefore, we attach our pumps with a mount that uses water bottle cage bolts since almost all frames accept water bottle cages.
Can I rebuild and service my hand pump?
Our Hand Pumps are built using very few parts, so rebuilding them is quite simple and easy! Below is a video that helps walk you through servicing your pump! Even if you are not mechanically inclined with this video you should have no issues performing the rebuild yourself. We do sell rebuild kits and spare parts for pumps if they are necessary. If you want it rebuilt for you please send Warranty@lezyne.com an email with all the requested information. We will be happy setting you up with an RMA # to get your pump back into us for a full repair.
Servicing your hand pump (Video)
Why do Lezyne pumps thread onto a valve?
Lezyne designed almost all of our pumps with a threaded connection because it is the most effective way to ensure that all of the air that you pump actually goes into the tire. Another plus is that you don't break valves off on tubes with "smart heads."
What is the difference between the Dual ABS flex hose and the ABS speed flex hose?
The Dual ABS Flex Hose has a threaded connection on both sides. One side of it is designed for Presta valves and the other side is developed for Schrader valves. The ABS Speed Flex hose comes on the Road Drive and Carbon Road Drive hand pumps only and is designed for use with Presta valves only. One side of the hose is a NON-THREADED slip-fit connection for speed and ease of inflation, while the other side is a threaded Presta connection for ensured stability.
 
CO2 Inflators
 
Why do Lezyne CO2 inflators thread onto the valve?
For precision! CO2 inflators, because they work with such high pressure canisters, are most efficient when the head is actually threaded onto the valve. Often, with non-threaded connection, some of the CO2 that is meant for the tire ends up leaking out past the valve itself.
Why does the CO2 Flex Hose not have ABS?
The reason our ABS is not equipped on our CO2 Flex hose is because the high pressures of the canisters. Our ABS system cannot withstand the extremely high pressure contained within our CO2 canisters and CO2 Flex Hoses.
Can I use the CO2 Flex Hose with other Lezyne hand pumps?
Our CO2 Flex hose is compatible with all our other Lezyne hand pumps.
What is CFH?
"CFH" stands for "CO2 Flex Hose", meaning that all of our CFH applications have a CO2 Flex Hose in them. The designation of "Road", "Pressure", or "Alloy" denotes to use and volume. The Road Drive CFH is meant for Road specific applications. Where our Pressure Drive CFH is more versatile and can be used on both Road and Mountain bikes. Lastly our Alloy Drive CFH is meant specifically for Mountain bikes or tires that require low pressure but have a higher volume.
What are the differences between the three CFH pumps?
The designation of "Road", "Pressure", or "Alloy" denotes to use and volume. The Road Drive CFH is meant for Road specific applications. Where our Pressure Drive CFH is more versatile and can be used on both Road and Mountain bikes. Lastly our Alloy Drive CFH is meant specifically for Mountain bikes or tires that require low pressure but have a higher volume.
Can I use 25G CO2 cartridges with my CFH pump?
You can use either 16g or 25g cartridges in any CFH application. It simply depends on what tires that you plan on inflating with them (road vs. mountain). The 25g cartridges will be able to fill higher volume tires and 16g cartridges are meant for lower volume applications.
Why should I use Lezyne CO2 cartridges?
If you have a Lezyne inflator/head, you MUST use a Lezyne cartridge with it because our heads require THREADED applications/canisters. We designed our systems this way with safety in mind as well as efficiency.
Can I use threadless CO2 cartridges with your Lezyne CO2 inflators?
I’m sorry to inform you that you cannot use thread-less canisters with our system.
Why does Alloy Drive CO2 have a canister body?
The Alloy Drive CO2 has a canister body in order to safely store your cartridge when it's not being used and also to help keep your hands warm while inflating tires with your CO2.
Does the ABS Speed Flex Hose (from the carbon Road Drive and Road Drive) work with disc wheels?
"Does the ABS Speed Flex Hose (from the carbon Road Drive and Road Drive) work with disc wheels? The Speed Flex Hose DOES NOT work with disc wheels. This hose does not come equipped with our 90 degree speed chuck that allows you to make the bend. Having our 90 degree speed chuck or our full alloy version slip chuck will allow you to inflate on disc/full race wheels. Our Micro Floor Drive HP/HPG is a combination of a hand pump and mini floor pump which is compatible with our Speed and Slip Chucks."
 
Bottle Cages
 
Why do some of your bottle cages have an integrated pump mount?
In designing cages, we wanted to design something for everybody. Some cyclists prefer mounting there pump straight onto their bike next to their water bottles. It’s quick, accessible, and integrated into your bike. Others prefer tucking their pump in their jersey pocket or pack. Also customers like the sleek design of a carbon or aluminum bottle cage that serves as a water bottle cage and nothing else.
Do you offer a cage without an integrated pump mount?
In Lezyne fashion we designed quality Carbon, Aluminum and Sleek Steel cages that are simply nothing more than a quality cage.
Do your bottle cages work with different brands of bottles?
We designed our cages to fit a large variety of bottles. We cannot guarantee that every bottle will fit PERFECTLY, but every bottle will certainly fit into our bottle cages and will work well. Because there are a number of different bottle shapes and sizes, we just do our best to design for a happy middle ground on all of them. If you are curious about how your bottle fits we encourage you to go into any local Lezyne retailer in your area. To find one near you follow this link.
Do your bottle cages work on small frames?
For 2013, Lezyne introduced the Side Load variety of cages, which includes both Carbon and Nylon versions (in both Left and Right loading options). The good thing about this cage is that it's designed specifically to work on extremely small, modern, compact geometry framesets.
Will your bottle cages scratch my bottles?
Any water bottle in ANY bottle cage will scratch over time and with excessive use. To say otherwise wouldn’t be truthful.
Does Lezyne make a side-loading bottle cage?
In 2013 we introduced our side-loading bottle cages both in Carbon and non-Carbon varieties.
 
Multi-Tools
 
What is the difference between the stainless and CRV tools?
The only difference between the Stainless and CRV tools is the hardware material. The stainless tool has Aluminum side plates and stainless steel tool bits that are extremely durable and corrosion resistant. Our CRV model tool has Aluminum side plates as well but uses Chrome Vanadium tool bits.
What is the difference between the SV and V tools?
The SV tools have Aluminum side plates and use stainless tool bits that are durable and corrosion resistant. Our V model tools have aluminum side plates as well but use Chrome Vanadium tool bits instead of Stainless Steel.
What is your smallest multi-tool?
Our smallest tool will be our Carbon 5, SV 5 or V5 tool. Our lightest multi-tool is the Carbon 5. This tool is composed of machined titanium hardware with forged, center-pivot, stainless steel bits. All of these tools are extremely small, yet rigid and strong.
What tool would you recommend for a roadie?
The best resource to help a road cyclist decide on a tool is our Buyer's Guide. However, the most well-equipped, versatile, and long-lasting tool that I can recommend is our SV10 tool.
What tool would you recommend for a mountain biker?
The best resource to help a mountain biker decide on a tool is our Buyer's Guide. However, the most well-equipped, versatile, and long-lasting tool that I can recommend is our SV10 tool.
Why do you have L-bend allens on your tools?
L-bend Allens make some awkward and hard-to-get-to Allen bolts easier to reach and work on. They also give you much more torque if necessary.
 
Shop Tools
 
Do you make a cassette tool for Campagnolo?
Lezyne does not make a cassette tool for Campagnolo drive train parts. The only Campy-compatible tool that we make is our 11 Speed Campagnolo chain breaker.
Can you use your chain whip tools on 11SPD cassettes?
I am sorry to inform you that our Chain tools cannot be used on 11 speed cassettes.
Can I put a single speed chain on your chain whips?
With enough elbow grease and determination, you can make almost any number of things work together. However this is something that we do not recommend. Modification of any of our product does void warranty.
Will the CNC rod work with my non-Lezyne cassette and bottom bracket tools?
Our CNC Rod was designed specifically to be used in conjunction with our 2-Way tools. No other manufacturer’s tools will work with our CNC Rod.
Are the bits on the 3-Way Y-Wrenches interchangeable?
Each model is designed to fit the corresponding bits. You can not interchange bits between the 3 models, so the short answer is “No.” The bits on our 3-Way Tools are designed and sized specifically for each individual tool.
Can I replace the 3-Way bits with any hex key?
Each model is designed to fit the corresponding bits. You can not interchange bits between the 3 models, so the short answer is “No.” The bits on our 3-Way Tools are designed and sized specifically for each individual tool.
 
Tire Repair
 
What is the difference between glue and pressure-sensitive patches?
Our glue-less patches are simply pressure sensitive patches that you peel and place on the tube where a hole is present. They are quick and easy fixes for on the fly repairs to get you home safely. Our Classic Kit still uses glue to adhere the patches to the tube, creating a more permanent bond with the tube. In short though, it is simply a matter of preference and both types of patches will solve your problems.
Is the lever kit waterproof?
The Lever Kit is what we call weather-resistant. To deem something water proof has to be able to be submersed to a certain meter depth. It will without a doubt keep water out of your tire repair goods.
Can your glueless patches work on high-pressure road tubes?
Our glue-less patches work very well on high pressure applications, such as 23C road tires.
Will your tire boots patch a tubeless tire?
Lezyne tire boots will patch a tubeless tire in an emergency. It will hold long enough to get you off the mountain or road, but should be taken out and the whole tire should immediately be replaced. Remember boots and patches are really meant to get you home.
What is the difference between the Alloy Kit and the Metal Kit?
The Alloy Kit comes in a polished and machined case, while the Metal Kit comes in a bead blasted case with color options.
Can I use my Saber Lever to remove my pedals?
The answer is yes! You can use your Saber Lever to remove pedals.
Is it safe to use the alloy levers on my carbon clincher wheels?
It is safe, but NOT recommended. Metal should NEVER be used on carbon wheels. We developed the Power and Matrix Levers for carbon wheels and applications where scratching needs to be avoided.
What is the difference between Power Levers and the Matric Levers?
Power Levers were designed to give you extra torque on wire beaded tires. They were also designed with integrated spoke hooks that allow you to hook the lever onto a spoke, freeing up both of your hands completely. The Matrix Levers are designed strictly as a tire removal tool with no extras.
