Lezyne envy.

There's something about the feeling of wood in our hands. We like the tactile sensation, the way it warms to the touch, the way we can see and feel the grain. The wood handle is 50% of what separates Lezyne's Alloy Floor Drive Pump from their CNC model. The second difference is the steel piston. Other than that, you get the same good-looking, long-lasting, easy-to-operate floor pump.

But the durable and good-looking CNC-finished aluminum is not the only things that make this pump work so well. There's also a 2.5-inch diameter dial that reads up to 220psi. The rubber hose is 43 inches (130cm) long. At the end of the hose is a flip-thread chuck, a reversible head for both Schrader and Presta valves. It has a button for bleeding air, which Lezyne calls ABS (Air Bleed System). The pump comes with a Speed Chuck, a thread-on slip-fit Presta head with a 90-degree angle to fit the head into the valve port on disc wheels.

The Lezyne Alloy Floor Dive Pump measures 5.9 x 7.9 x 25in (15 x 20 x 63.5 cm). The handle is 9.5in. The interior diameter of the barrel is 28mm, which means the pump has been optimized for high-pressure applications. It has a claimed weight of 3.5lbs (1.6kg). The colors are anodized, high-polished Red and Silver.

Best Pump Ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are simply the best pumps ever, no issues or problems, just great, consistent, high pressure air.

Get pumped up!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Tried it out, and it easily pumped my road bike tires up to 120psi.
I really like the pressure release function and the long hose.
So far, I really like this pump.

best pump ever made

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

All of their pumps rule. No issues as of yet and have been using the same one for over 8 years....

Never had any issues with presto valves as others have, but its the same as anything - don't break things or make things more complicated. Using this pump as it should produces great results every time.

I could rave on for hours about these pumps. Best hands down...

Great Pump but...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a terrific pump especially for Presta valves. The screw in feature instead of a lever means you don't damage the stem on the Presta valve. But.. if the stem is even slightly bent, the pump doesn't work. Great pump, but very little tolerance for the real world. If you change a flat in the field, and bend the stem just a little, not really unusual, you will need a second pump, or a second inner tube.

Chuck Isn't User Friendly

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The chuck is a pain to screw onto a valve. The speed chuck has to be held down while pumping. Altough the pump goes up to a high air pressure, the volume per pump is low. For mountain bike tires it takes a while to fill. It is a piece of art, but I don't know how long I can live with the short comings.

I like the screw on connection and air bleeder a lot, however. The rotating connection between the hose and the nozzle broke leaking air after using it twice. Since Backcountry has a great return policy and the pump is warrantied for two years, I'll give it one more shot and get another one.

Nice solid pump. We did struggle with the valve extenders on the ZIPP 808's.

No Dinging Your Finger

The best thing about these pumps is the screw on feature. No messing getting the nozzle onto the tube valve. Just screw it on and it works. If you have been riding long enough you probably have had your fingernail dinged hard from the flip type valve nozzle. Easy removal of valve even with threaded valve stems. I highly recommend this pump. Just make sure to remove air from the tube prior to pumping as the gauge may not register if their is too much pressure already in the tire.

So what is the warranty time period?

It doesn't really matter. If you buy it through Backcountry, you get lifetime returns and exchanges through Backcountry.

Recommended Highly

Bought this to replace the Blackburn model I've used for 2 years - I very much prefer its screw-on fit and what looks to be more accurate pressure readings. It's high quality and now my second Lezyne purchase since buying Road Drive frame pump last year. Best I've used
