With all of the plus tires, fat bike tires, and bigger tubeless tires going around, it may be time to upgrade your pump soon as well. Typically designed for high pressure or high volume, the latest crop of tires push high volume to the extreme. Adding to the few fat bike hand pump concepts we’ve seen recently, Lezyne unveiled their new Micro Floor Drive XL in Taipei. Sized to fill fat bike tires with ease yet still fit in your hydration pack or frame bag, the pump is also joined by the new Pressure Over Drive which should be handy for seating tubeless tires…
Essentially a supersized version of the Micro Floor Drive, the new XL version runs a massive barrel to up the volume of each stroke substantially. Other than the increased size, the pump remains the same with a fold out foot peg and flexible hose with a reversible presta/schrader head with pressure release. When available the pump should run around $50.
Lezyne is also joining in on the tubeless inflation floor pumps with an air chamber equipped floor pump of their own.
The new Pressure Over Drive was shown in Taipei in prototype form so a few things will likely change for production like the pump head and the base. But the overall concept will remain the same with a large chamber that is filled with the pump, then released with the flip down lever below. Likely to be sold in black with a wood handle, the Pressure Over Drive will sell for around $129 and should be available in June.
