Strengths:    Nil

Weaknesses:    Unfortunately I struggle to use this and get it to work. Only once I have been sucsseful. I try to use it for my daughters and my road bikes. I find it extremley frustrating and have tried and tried and even returned to the store i purchased. Ease of use is what I was after at point of sale. Sadly this has not meet my needs.

Bottom Line:   
Can anyone help?

Strengths:    Works as advertised and gauge is very accurate.

Weaknesses:    You have to have a modicum of mechanical expertise to use it.

Bottom Line:   
Best pump I've owned and I love the screw on chuck which is far less likely
to bend/break valve stems than most other designs I've seen...

Strengths:    looks pretty on wall

Weaknesses:    breaks valve stems

Bottom Line:   
Pretty disappointing for a high-end pump. gauge goes to 220 psi 6 times higher than a MTB tire and twice a road tire) so it's really hard to get an accurate reading.

Worst is that when you're done pumping and go to remove it one of two things happen: either removes the valve core or breaks it. Called Lezyne service and they said they have a new chuck adapter that i should go buy. So basically I have to go spend an hour driving around to bike shops and spend another $20 just to get an expensive pump to not break tubes/valve stems.

Just buy another brand from the start and save yourself the hassle. If you really want a Lezyne, mine is for sale cheap!

Strengths:    High volume, head seals well on both presta and schrader valves. Pressure gauge seems very accurate. I have the high volume pump, the pressure gauge only goes to 70 psi. Since the graduations are so large it is easy to get the right pressure on mountain bike tires. High volume allows easy mounting of tubeless tires.

Weaknesses:    Does not work well with bontrager tubeless valves, most likely does not work well with other presta sized tubeless valves. Since the chuck spins on it has a tendency to remove the valve core. This can get messy with tire sealant spewing all over the place.

Bottom Line:   
Great pump, but not for reqular use on tubeless setups. It is fine for mounting tubeless tires the first time, before sealant has gotten distributed all around the tire. After that it is hard to get the the chuck off without unscrewing the valve stem. Still, despite the issue with the tubeless valves a great pump, no need for compressor now. You could probably find a way to attach a different head if you really wanted to. The screw on head works wonderfully on standard tubes. Has quality feel. Great for car tires too.

Strengths:    Works like a charm. Fast. Solid build. Threads onto valve, no leakage.

Weaknesses:    The gauge could be a little easier to read

Bottom Line:   
Everything about this pump says quality. I don't think I could break it if I dropped it off the roof. I like using it better than firing up the compressor (and waiting) or fighting with the frame pump. Also good for topping off the tires on my truck, and its easy. Recomended.

Strengths:    Looked at the stock at the LBS - Bontrager mostly - very expensive stuff, and then this yellow beast caught my eye. Not only is it good looking, classic and simply with a wood handle, it was $20 - $50 less than the competition. Yes, it pumps fast, the presta->schrader conversion is simple, and the guage is spot on. For the money, I don't think it gets much better...

Weaknesses:    Is there a release valve? Pressure doesn't automatically display when first attached, it requires a pump to show you where you are.

Bottom Line:   
Couldn't be happier, with said exceptions - pressure release and automatic display of pressure once connected.

Strengths:    Pressure, gauge accuracy, looks, design, head.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
THis pump is very high quality. Better than any I have ever used. The gauge is very precise, the thing is very well designed and thought out... all the way donw to how the hose secures itself to the pump. The pump head is similar to Silca's famous head, screws onto the valve using the stam-cap threads. It'struly the best head design I have seen... no pressure escapes the tire when the head is removed.

Best pump I have ever used... Only comparable to the silca, everything else isn't even in the same category... and the Silca is even a distant second.

Strengths:    precision, quick fill for a high pressure pump, no leaking,

Weaknesses:    minor pain to have to screw on (and screw off) the presta head - but it makes for an excellent seal!

Bottom Line:   
I've had about 15 flats in the past three months having ridden about 2000 road miles, top of my tires before each ride, so use the pump frequently. I like it a lot, will see in a year or so how durable it is, but seems adequate in that department so far. It is quick filling, has easy-to-read gage, seems accurate, repeatable, and precise. No idea if it is easy to repair or get parts for. Haven't flipped the head for use with Schrade valves yet, but from trying once seems one will need a couple pair of pliers to - at least initially - loosen the head to flip it.

Strengths:    -Looks sharp
-21 full strokes will pump road tire to 110psi
-High volume easily seats MTB tire beads w/o compressor
-Reversible Presta/Schrader valve easily screws in and out
-Billet alloy construction withstands being knocked-down repeatedly
-220psi gauge easily pumps car/motorcycle tires too!
-Inflates sports balls and swim rafts in record time
-Long 50" hose allows inflation with bike high on stand


Weaknesses:    ZERO...

Bottom Line:   
My best friend owns a bike shop, and I had the rare opportunity to demo several professional-grade floor pumps. I soon realized its worth paying for a high-end pump such as the Lezyne Air Drive Alloy floor pump with the flippable air chuck. Here are my conclusions:

Specialized Airtool Pro - Nice, but only had 140psi max. The air release button was nice for getting exact air pressure, though.

Serfas FP-606 - This dual-stage pump goes to 160psi but the hi-volume/hi-pressure switch was inconveniently located. Also, the short hose made pumping on a stand require a crutch...such as a short stool. Very cheaply made, and the price reflects that fact too.

Blackburn Air Tower 4 - Bad seals make for a very frustrating pump. Nobody likes to pump while hearing a hiss!

Park Tool PMP-5 - Good pump, but removing it from the valve required immense effort...resulting in skinned knuckles, thanks to contacting the cassette. The Lezyne never exhibited this annoying feature...EVER!!!

Topeak Twister Digital - Short gauge life and unreliable digital readout made this a poor choice.

The bottom line? The Lezyne is not only the LAST floor pump you'll ever need but it's also by far the best money can buy!!! Spend the money NOW and be done with it FOREVER...

Strengths:    Best Presta attachment available. Strong, Solid build. Large easy to read gauge. Long hose.

Weaknesses:    Little heavy(because all steel)

Bottom Line:   
I had to replace about 10 inner tubs over the last few years because my old floor pump would sometimes tear off the end of the Presta valve when I removed the pump's chuck. The Presta chuck on Lezyne pumps employs a great design which uses steel threads to screw on to the bass of the Presta valve without grabbing on to the steam when the chuck is removed. The styling of this pump is very "old school". Some people my consider that a good thing or bad thing, but there is no denying that the all steel body and base with natural wood handle is very solidly built. Highly recommended!

Lezyne Steel Floor Drive Pump Vs. Topeak Joe Blow

I'm looking for a new floor pump for my Pugsley and LHT Disc. Both have Presta valves. My eye sight isn't what it used to be so readable gauge would be helpful. What are your thoughts on best one. Thank you.Read More »
