How do I upload my rides to Strava?
Plug the GPS into your computer, Upload your ride to our GPS Root website, and , you can choose to also upload to Strava by turning on this function in the settings menu. Once a ride is uploaded you can click on view details then click the Strava button.
  • When the device is plugged into your computer, you can upload rides directly to Strava through their website. Click upload page then click file. Find the “Activities” folder on the Lezyne GPS and select your rides.
  • When viewing the ride summary of a ride that’s already been uploaded to our GPS Ally App 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?
Lezyne GPS are capable of uploading rides from the device to your phone via the Lezyne GPS Ally app (available for both iOS and Android smart phones). Once the ride is uploaded it can then be pushed to Strava. In the Ally app settings you can also turn on "Strava Auto Sync" which will automatically push your saved rides to Strava when they are uploaded through the Ally app.
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?
Lezyne GPS have the latest GPS chip technology and advanced GPS programming to consistently read within 5 – 10 meters of a fixed elevation point (results may vary from device to device). Some models have a barometer to increase the accuracy of the GPS elevation calculation and also will show you accent and decent data while riding.
Do the GPS devices have a barometer?
Our Super GPS, Micro GPS, and Micro Color GPS devices do have a barometer.
Does the GPS recording work well in [insert country]?
Yes, GPS stands for Global Positioning System therefore it will work the same globally.
Are there aftermarket front/aero mounts available for Lezyne GPS units?
We currently offer our own version, but other brands will be offering them soon as well (K-Edge, Barfly).
Grab our version here.
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. You can start the recording but data will not be tracked until a GPS signal is acquired. You can also begin recording if you are using a stationary trainer indoors.
What do I do if my screen freezes?
You will need to do a "hard reset". No saved rides will be lost. It's like restarting your computer.
How do I hard reset my Lezyne GPS?
Press and hold the menu button and enter button at the same time for about 25 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?
Yes. The Y10 GPS models are capable of charging while recording.
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?
All the Y10 GPS models can connect to Bluetooth (BTLE) and the Micro, Super and Micro C can connect to ANT+. We cannot test every combination but
click here for a list of compatible devices.
Will your GPS work with my current cadence sensor or heart rate monitor?
All the Y10 GPS can connect to Bluetooth (BTLE) and the Micro, Super and Micro C can connect to ANT+. We cannot test every combination but
click here for a list of compatible devices.
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. Also check your wheel magnet that it is close enough to the sensor. Batteries can also die in the sensor units.
How do I pair my power meter to my GPS?
In the GPS device’s menu 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. If you have a power speed cadence senor select that option in the menu.
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. 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 engineers can understand. Check out this site for more information: http://spaceplace.nasa.gov/gps/en/
Is the Lezyne GPS mount the same as Garmin’s mount?
No—while similar in looks, it’s a better mounting system. We have 4 large tabs that we call our “X-Lock” design, which is a much more secure connection because it's a push and turn to release the unit. 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 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?
NO - Do not attempt to take apart your GPS ever. This will void your warranty.
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.

LED Lights
 
Which Lezyne LED light should I buy?
If you are planning on doing high speed or trail night riding, we would recommend the Performance line of lights. For commuting and general night riding, or if you want a little extra light on the road/trail, we'd suggest something from the Sport line. Our Hybrid line has innovative solutions for your needs. Our Buyer's Guide at www.lezyne.com/buyers-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 fast night riding on the road and trail, Sport lights are lower lumens while still being enough to see what is in front of you and go for long rides in the dark.
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 could damage the light void your warranty. Use the Lezyne charging cable provided with your light.
If I have a removable battery light 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 older 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 Y4-Y7 Mega and Y8 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". The best operating temperatures are between 35-90 degrees Fahrenheit.
Can I use my lights when it is really cold?
If you are riding in temperatures below freezing turn on your light in the house let it warm up before going out riding.
Can I use my Lezyne LED as a handheld flashlight?
Using Lezyne Performance 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 the light will automatically switch to the lowest output and may even shut off if it over heats. The some of Sport series lights can be used as flashlights.
What is 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 Y4-Y8 Lezyne lights?
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 Y9 and later model lights do not have replaceable batteries.
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.
What is the life of a lithium ion battery? How many cycles will it take?
This is a question that most LED manufacturers 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 to work 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 calibrated Integrating Sphere. This measure visible light. The LED bulb and lens effect the final lumens. We test our actual lumen output. Not every brand does this some lumens are claimed ours are tested.
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 and is ONLY for valve extenders.
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 are only to be used with threadless valve extenders.
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.
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 rebuildable. If you experience any issues please return to your original place of purchase and they will be able to assist you in getting the replacement parts you need. Many issues are covered by warranty if you are still within your warranty period. 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 easy.
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 and hand pumps both work with most valve extenders. Valve extenders without valve cap threads are not compatible with our new ABS2 head unless you use Lezyne Valve extenders.
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?
Yes - as with any part on you bicycle make sure they are properly tight before riding or pumping.
My Lezyne pump keeps removing my valve cores, how do I make it stop?
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 ABS feature that is built into our flip chucks relieve the back pressure. 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 use 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 (high pressure) and HV (high volume) version of every pump. "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 are wider and larger 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 HP lineup with a digital gauge. The HP will allow you to get to high pressures and the digital gauge will give you the low pressure accuracy for high volume applications.
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 nearly eliminate the need for air compressors (to seat tubeless tires) completely. It is dependent on your tire and rim combination.
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 80psi-200psi. 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. The reason we designed two different pumps is for efficiency and simplicity.
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 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. http://www.lezyne.com/support-buyersguide.php
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.
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.
Can the pen gauge work on all 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.
Does the pen gauge come with an ABS chuck?
Yes
How many strokes does it take to inflate a tire?
This is something that depends on to many variables. Most bike shops should let you try out a pump before you buy it. Because there are so many different “standardize” tire sizes it is hard for us to give a generalized statement for all our pumps. The quality and design of our pumps make pumping easy no matter how many strokes it takes.
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 and patient 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.
What is the actual rated pressure for your pumps?
We rate them to the pressure a normal human can pump a tire to.
What is the difference between the road drive and pressure drive pumps?
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?
Yes, our new Flex Hose with the Air bleed System(ABS) is able to thread into your older model Lezyne hand pump. ABS Flex Hoses are available separately for purchase if you're looking to upgrade your older hand pump. We offer two different ABS flex hoses. One is a Schrader/Presta dual sided flex hose and the other is a Presta only compatible.
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. Our Carbon Road Drive is made of a full carbon barrel, 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. The handle, end caps, and piston head are composed of Carbon Matrix. To pin point the best product exactly for you, you will want to check out our Buyer’s Guide or your local bike shop.

What is the difference between the three shock pumps?
We offer two hand pump style Shock Drives. One is our new Digital Shock drive with a built in digital gauge on the side of the barrel and the other is simply called the Shock drive. The Shock drive comes with a in-hand analog gauge. Our hand models are designed for the trail and easily hide away in a pack. The third model we offer is our Shock Digital Drive. This pump 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 and a two-step shock specific chuck that allows you to keep a sealed connection leaving the perfect pressure when threading off.
What is your lightest hand pump?
Our lightest pump is the Carbon Pressure Drive, and it weighs in at 73g.
What is your smallest hand pump?
Lezyne's smallest hand pumps capable of inflating tires come in the Small size. These pumps measure about 7.5in/19cm in length. Lezyne offers both HP and HV pumps in the Small size.
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. If you need to acquire a seal kit you can do so at any of your local Lezyne Retailer. If they do not have them in stock they can source one in from our local distributor for you.

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 secure the pump to the valve. This will 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 designed to be compatible for Schrader valves. The ABS Presta Flex hose comes on the Road Drive, Lite Drive, and Carbon Road Drive model hand pumps and are specifically designed for use with Presta valves. 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.
Does the ABS Speed Flex Hose (from the carbon Road Drive and Road Drive) work with disc wheels?
Maybe but not likely. 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.
 
CO2 Inflators
 
Why do Lezyne CO2 inflators thread onto the valve?
For a secure attachment. CO2 inflators are 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?
NO - Only the pressure CFH pump can use the CO2 Flex hose.
What is CFH?
"CFH" stands for "CO2 Flex Hose". This is a special hose that comes with the Pressure CFH that can be use das a pump or a CO2 inflator.
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?
No.
 
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 many standard bicycle water bottles will fit into our bottle cages and be very secure. 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?
The Flow SL and Carbon SL line of cages, which includes both Carbon and Composite Matrix versions (in both Left and Right loading options) work great for small frames or full suspension bikes with small triangles. The good thing about this cage is that it's designed specifically to work on extremely small framesets.
Will your bottle cages scratch my bottles?
Any water bottle in ANY bottle cage will scratch over time and with excessive use.
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 difference between the Stainless and CRV tools is the tool bit 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 and Chrome Vanadium tool steel tool bits.
What is the difference between the SV and V tools?
The difference between the SV and V tools is the tool bit material. The SV tool has Aluminum side plates and stainless steel tool bits that are extremely durable and corrosion resistant. Our V model tool has Aluminum side plates and Chrome Vanadium tool steel tool bits.
What is your smallest multi-tool?
Our smallest tool will be our Carbon 5, SV 5 or V5 tools. 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 the road rider?
Most road riders like the compact design of the SV, V or Carbon series tools. The best resource to help a road cyclist decide on a tool is our Buyer's Guide.
What tool would you recommend for a mountain biker?
The Stainless, CRV or RAP tools are usually purchased by riders looks for more tools in a compact package. The best resource to help a mountain biker decide on a tool is our Buyer's Guide.
Why do you have L-bend allens on your tools?
L-bend hex keys 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 11-speed cassettes?
Yes.
Can I put a single speed chain on your chain whips?
No - they are designed multi-speed chains.
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?
All of our 3-way tools come with an extra set of replacement bits. Each model is designed to fit the corresponding bits. You can not interchange bits between the 3 models.
Can I replace the 3-Way bits with any hex key?
No- they are designed to be used with the proper bits.
 
Tire Repair
 
What is the difference between glue and pressure-sensitive patches?
Our Smart Kit 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.
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 most high and low pressure applications.
Will your tire boots patch a tubeless tire?
Lezyne tire boots will patch a tubeless tire in an emergency. Although it depends on the size of the cut in the tire. The whole tire should immediately be replaced when you get home. Remember boots and patches are temporary.
What is the difference between the Lever Kit and the Metal Kit?
The Lever Kit comes with two tire levers secured to a bead blasted case with color options and a Smart Kit inside, while the Metal Kit comes just with a Smart kit 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 if the pedal removal size is 15mm.
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 just light and strong.
