Listen to Lezyne Electrical Engineer, Gregg Chavoor, explain how we test lights with our lab calibrated Integrating Sphere. This piece of equipment is vital to Lezyne's LED engineering and design process.
San Luis Obispo, CA - Lezyne is proud to announce it will continue it's cooperation with Danny MacAskill for another two years. To commemorate the renewed relationship, Lezyne is excited to launch the new MacAskill Signature products: The MacAskill Block tool and MacAskill Travel Drive pump.
Lezyne met with Danny at this year's Eurobike Expo, where talk of a signature line started. "When we met, we knew we wanted to continue our relationship with Danny. Its been a great year working with him and we are excited to be signed on for another 2-years. We also wanted to do something special with Danny by making something that meets his needs as a pro athlete." says Patrick Ribera-McKay, Lezyne's Marketing Manager.
In no time, ideas on paper turned in to real products tailored for Danny, and the rider-mechanic in all of us. The result is a tool and travel pump that are equally suited for use on the bike at home or on the road, easy to carry, with the quality, durability, and style of Lezyne's Shop Tools. In fact, that quality and stylish design are the main reasons why the Scottish YouTube sensation chose to enter into a partnership with Lezyne.
MacAskill and Lezyne started their cooperation earlier this year and so far both sides have benefited from this decision. The YouTube project 'Danny MacAskill Insights,' already past the one million views benchmark, shows the star athlete returning home to Edinburgh, where he visited his roots and tried out his Lezyne equipment for the first time. (The link to the clip: http://bit.ly/yJJazg). Lezyne also worked with Danny over the summer, where Danny took part in a bike mechanic workshop at a trial youth camp. Lezyne supported this event with a screwdriver workshop, where they taught kids how to utilize a bike multi-tool. You’ll find the video on: http://win.gs/ZGqJS8
The MacAskill Series will be available in stores starting February 2013. For more details on the MacAskill Signature Series, see them on Lezyne's website here>>

Lezyne is proud to announce that 4x racer and freerider Angie Hohenwarter will join our team of Ambassadors in 2013. Angie has been riding and racing since she was 9 years old. She started with XC, but got bored and moved on to DH and 4X. Now she rides her bike all around the world, sharing her passion for cycling with everyone she comes across. Lezyne first talked to Angie at this year's Eurobike tradeshow, where she met with Marketing Manager, Patrick Ribera-Mckay. "Angie's passion for cycling, results, and her plans for what she wants to do in 2013 left an impression. We are glad to have her on board and look forward to working together next year," said McKay. Angie is a long-time Lezyne fan and had this to say about joining the team. "I'm stoked to be with Lezyne now. Lezyne always was such an eye catcher for me. I love the simple and strong design, and function of their products and I can't imagine a better partner to take with me on my travels because now 100% prepared for every situation. Thanks guys!"
For 2013, Angie will be riding with Lezyne's multi-tools, pump, tire repair, organizers, and LED light systems.
Lezyne recently finished building its new factory in Taichung, Taiwan!! Here are some photos from the new factory. From Lezyne USA headquarters to Lezyne Factory TW, we maintain a unified and very contemporary feel in every aspect. Dual head, commercial espresso machines in every location, handbuilt wood furnishings by Micki Kozuschek's longtime friend Olaf, and plate glass everywhere. We hope that you enjoy this as much as we all do.
The body is a longer version of the neat, CNC machined aluminium cylinder we first encountered on the aforesaid Micro Drive. Further similarities include the Maximum Optical Reflection (MOR) lens, intended to produce a beam that is wide, smooth, and bright, an LED, and a button mounted on top of the cylinder that changes colour to indicate the remaining charge."
Lezyne's new website just recently featured on Coolhomepages.com. It's pretty exciting to see that our website has been really well received this year. Go to www.lezyne.com to see it for yourself. If you like it enough to say something, please share your thoughts on our Facebook page.

"This has truly been the most incredible week…. I have had some happy times in my life but nothing could have prepared me for this. Last Saturday I raced the World Championships and won the Silver Medal for Australia. The first women’s road worlds medal in seven years. I am completely honoured, proud and humbled by not only the opportunity to gain such a result and standing on that podium but by the overwhelming support, wishes and genuine happiness that has been flowing my way all week....."

Apparently it was a 34km course in which they trumped the closest opponents Orica Green Edge by 24 seconds. Well done ladies. The full article and PHOTO GALLERY (which is amazing!!) are located HERE.
If you happen to be at Roc d'Azur this coming weekend, stop by Booth C96 on Saturday, October 13th at 3:30 for a signing session with Cedric Gracia, Yannick Granieri, and Remy Absalon.

MTBR visited our booth at Interbike and shot a lot of videos and photos for your viewing pleasure. They are all super informative and helpful in introducing the new 2013 line of products to the consumer. It is absolutely worth the time to find out what actually drives us and what the end result in the product looks like. Enjoy. Link HERE.
Bobby McMullen just worked with SR Suntour to release a video about Bobby's life on his bike and his riding with his "guide" (most frequently his freshly married wife Heidi). It is a really interesting video with great videography and amazing content. Check it out HERE.
