The newest gauge on test here, the Digital Check Drive is, perhaps surprisingly, Lezyne’s first standalone pressure gauge. Known for producing a huge range of pumps, tools, lights and GPS computers, Lezyne has been doing the digital pressure thing for a wee while now, with a digital readout integrated into some of its floor and mini-pump models, as well as the brilliant Digital Shock Drive that won a Singletrack Recommended Award.

Despite its enormous upper limit though, Lezyne states the gauge is accurate to +/- 1 psi across the entire 0-350 psi range. Certainly in our testing at pressures between 15-25 psi, the Digital Check Drive proved to be highly accurate, and just as good as the EVT and Fabric gauges.
