I wanted a second pump to keep in the garage, while I used my digital pump with my smart trainer. I like Lezyne pumps, and this one is no exception. It's easy to reach high pressures, the gauge is easy to read, I specifically like the screw-on ABS-1 head. I frequently used to break valves with flip lever heads, but have not broken one since I switched to the ABS-1. The built-in valve wrench is nice for tightening removable valves that might unscrew. Very happy with the pump especially for the price.
I was looking specifically for a floor pump that threads on to a presta valve because I kept bending valve cores with my old pump that had a flip lever to lock. This pump really works for me. Threads on and a big, easy to read, gauge. And, as with all Lezyne products, impeccably built.
I bought this pump because I have several Lezyne portable pumps and love them. This pump comes with a screw-on chuck that I found to damage valves. I swapped the screw-on chuck for a dual valve press on type and that fixed the issue.
LIkes: Long hose to reach tires while on stand and that secures nicely in the base for storage; easy to change adaptive chuck for filling Presta or Schrader valves; large accurate readable dial; wood handles (crazy and retro, but comfortable); it's RED, easy to find; and bleed-off valve is well-located and functional. Quality construction
Cons: Takes maybe two more pumps (strokes) than my Specialized to reach pressure and no pointer (marker) for highlighting desired PSI on dial, but the dial numbers are large.
It quickly became my go-to floor pump.
I've had issues with cheaper pumps in the past so I went for the higher end option. Love this Lezyne.
My only issue is that it's a bit hard to fit on the valve since there's not a lot of room between spokes but I'm getting the hang of it.
All pumps are still in operation, just needed one to leave in the car and one in the garage. Two others the kids have at their house. Great gear with no problems, and if you do you can take it apart and fix it yourself with parts from Lezyne. Great tech support that you can understand and quality materials.
I really like how Lezyne interfaces with the tire. Rather than using a leaver, Lezyne uses a threaded chuck. This is not only a better interface for inflating, but it also doesn't feel like you are going to rip the valve stem off when you remove it.
This pump has the build quality that has become a given with Lezyne products. Two things should be considered before getting one, though. 1.) The screw-on coupling is large. It is not well suited to bikes where there is limited clearance between the spokes such as small-wheeled folders and small children's bikes. 2.) you have to anticipate losing up to 5 lbs. of pressure as you thread the chuck off of a valve. My only other complaint would be the extremely limited cryptic pictorial instructions contained only on a small tag zip-tied to the pump handle.
This is a really nice pump. It fits both schrader and presta valves so I can use it on either my road or mountain bikes. The head screws easily on to the stem so you dont loose tire pressure when conecting or disconecting. It has a very stable base and reliable place to store the head so you dont step on it. And, the price is reasonable and it comes in colors.
The only thing I might fault is that, while large, the face of the guage is silver with black markings and can be a bit difficult to read in dim light.
Unlike the lever operated pump heads, this one has a thread on head that's easy to righty tighty lefty loosey resulting in no bent stems and when it's on, you know it's securely on. No leaky pumping. Also, the amount of escaping air when you loosen to remove is much less than with the lever operated type. The only thing I'm not sure about is the scratchy sound it makes on the plunge.
This pump is a huge upgrade from the inexpensive floor pump I have used for many years. Fairly priced, excellent quality materials and finish. Works equally well on both types of tire valves. Higher PSIï¿½s take a few more strokes than you might think, but youï¿½ll get there! Love the gauge too.
