The promise of steel.
Lezyne’s Steel Drive Floor Pump is designed to be the last floor pump you ever buy, and while that might be bad news for Lezyne's prospects of repeat business, it's good news for you. Lezyne consistently delivers pumps with solid metal construction and timeless wooden handles, and the Steel Drive is no exception, featuring, as its name suggests, a steel barrel and aluminum base with a solid wooden handle.
The pump is capable of filling anything from knobby CX race tires to your everyday road tires with up to 220PSI, which you'll be able to keep track of on a large, easy-to-read pressure gauge. Compatibility isn't an issue for the Speed Chuck head either, whose 90-degree bend allows it to easily work with disc wheels as well as both Presta and Schrader valves, and which is equipped with ABS-2 technology to allow for minute, precise air pressure adjustments as you're filling your tires.

- Q & A
Pump head difficult to attach
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I'm a big fan of the Lezyne hand pumps. That's why I bought this one. Sadly, it misses the mark. The pump head is the biggest issue for me. It's the red ring you see in the picture that you need to push down to lock it onto the valve. Unfortunately, it's pretty tricky to do and easily jumps off. I often need multiple attempts. Recently, I was trying to pump up a tire whose valve stem was not tightened down using a lock nut. The little bit of extra flexibility in the valve stem made it impossible to attach the pump head altogether. That's when I decided to retire the pump and go with a different one.
Never buy a Lezyne product!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought a Lezyne Steel Drive ABS-2 Floor Pump after reading the product review. "...designed to be the last floor pump you ever buy..." Wrong, I'm buying another pump today, just weeks after trying this terrible product. The problem is the Speed Chuck pump head. It's poorly designed and poorly assembled. Trouble began when it fell apart due to being poorly assembled. The internal springs and mechanism spilled out, and though difficult to reassemble, it was possible to do. Nevertheless, the pump head never worked, so I purchased a Lezyne Dual Valve Pump Head to replace it. The new Lezyne replacement head leaks air! It's completely useless. My advice? Never buy a Lezyne product. I've left my pump in the parking garage - it's free for the taking - I can't bear to throw it in the planet's bulging waste stream.
Pump it up!
The go ride...
Pretty but doesn't put out
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I agree with the other reviewer in the look of the pump, it's pretty sexy. When I tried to use it the first time I pulled up on the pump to extension(not thinking) and the piston angled ever so slightly so that it caught/rubbed in the beginning of the stroke. That has continued to happen. Volume output is minimal compared to my past pumps. I use a Specialized and Joe Blow for years to set tubeless and this just couldn't handle it. Disappointed when I grabbed it the first time to do just that and needed to move it aside to get the Specialized which seated on the 3rd pump. I'd say 30-40% less volume.
I think if a bike pump as a necessity that when you reach for it it just works. Years of use with the other two pumps shows that I actually had some pretty decent products on the shelf when compared to this particular model Lezyne. Pretty and will pump tires up so I guess it does it's job just not efficient about it.
A Reasonably Price Quality Pump!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've been on on the hunt for a reasonably priced floor pump that doesn't fall apart and I've finally found it. I'd purchased two others from a different brand that were just cheap, quality-wise. This one was $10 more and the jump in quality was significant.
The stroke is really long on this, which I love. It allows you to build up momentum and get a boatload of air per pump. That must be why it can go all the way to 220 psi.
The ABS-2 is a great, easy to use system that fits tightly around presta valves (and works with schrader, too, though I haven't tried that). It disengages without loosing a big blast of air, which is nice, too.
I highly recommend t his pump!!
