Pros: Compact Nature to Barrel Extension, ABS Flex Hose, Presta/Shrader Compatibility
Compact Nature to Barrel Extension
The Lezyne Pressure Drive hand pump has the capability to transform, from a compact stature, into an optimal inflation device. The massive barrel extension greatly reduces inflation time (to a maximum of 120psi), while increasing the amount of pressure that is being transferred. Although the Lezyne Pressure Drive is a slightly larger hand pump, it has capabilities that prevent the user from thinking twice about storage, especially during longer rides.
Once a hand pump that includes an ABS flex hose is owned, it is impossible to retrieve a normal hand pump. What was previously overrated, in my mind, is now a necessity for every hand pump. The ABS flex hose cleanly transfers air between the hand pump and a presta/shrader valve stem. Without seeping air and continuous readjustment, it is possible to rapidly decrease the time needed to inflate a flat tire.
As previously mentioned, the Lezyne Pressure Drive hand pump is compatible with both presta and shrader valves.
The debate between CO2 devices and hand pumps may never end. During testing and use of the Lezyne Pressure Drive hand pump, there were no major downsides or flaws. However, a CO2 device does have the ability to inflate a tire in seconds. The Pressure Drive has the ability to inflate a tire, as quickly as someone is willing to pump. The use of CO2 has its time and place but I would not trade out the Lezyne Pressure Drive hand pump for a CO2 device.
Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with the Lezyne Pressure Drive hand pump. Its compact nature but extreme extension and brilliant design certainly made me a fan.
