Lezyne always launches a load of new stuff at the Sea Otter and 2018 was no different. Concentrating on its core products of pumps, tools and lights, there was plenty to see…
Not everyone (ahem) can see those teeny tiny pump gauges, so Lezyne’s latest Floor Drive pump has an extra large dial for better visibility. It also has a hollow handle that stores a tool in one side and tyre levers in the other.
Something that showed a clever bit of integration was the way that this light integrates into this Pivot Shuttle e-bike. The light takes its power from the bike’s battery, meaning that the head unit can be made reasonably small and light. Clever.
More integration – Lezyne offers a stem mount for lights, or GPS units that mounts to your stem. Using the stem’s own mounting plate and some longer bolts, the rotatable mounts adjust to nearly all stem models.
Lezyne has also been working on smaller tools that either fit in a pocket or velcro to the seatpost or stem/toptube wherever… This includes the little pill-shaped tubeless tyre plugger.
The Leyzne Storage Drive sits in a small, Velcro-backed sheath that deploys to reveal a set of hex tools hidden in the Sooty’s Magic Wand-looking handle and a driver.
For the more complete adventurer, there’s a T-Drive tool that comes in a zippered pouch that offers a full range of magnetic hex tools and a T-bar handle that screws together.
There will be all sorts of other stuff coming out this year from Lezyne, so stay tuned.
