Lezyne gps lights abs 2 (3)

If the battle of the pumps was a thing, Lezyne would have just fired the next shot. An interesting addition to almost their entire line of floor pumps, their new ABS 2 pump head promises to make filling your tires even easier. The change comes as Lezyne also introduces the number of improved lights which cram an incredible amount of lumens into very compact housings…

Similar to other pump heads we’ve seen, the ABS 2 chuck pushes on to the valve and with a half turn of the of the collar it locks onto the valve. To remove, simply pull on the collar and it pops off. For Schrader valves the chuck simply threads on. Available in both high-volume or high-pressure pump heads, each include a pressure bleed valve. The 90° angle is also designed to work with aero disc wheels. As a running change throughout the line, only the Travel Drive and least expensive pumps will not see the new valve. The ABS 2 will also be available as an upgrade for current pumps for $17.99.

Preparing for the impending shipment of their first GPS units, Lezyne was having a bit of fun at the show with their Secret Agent Edition GPS watches which they were using to text message each other during the show. Part of the GPS functionality is the ability to display text messages during a ride among many other things, all in an affordable package. The GPS market is starting to see a lot of newcomers but the Lyzyne unit looks pretty good.

Continuing their march towards being an electronics company as much as a tool company, Lezyne is introducing nine new lights with everything from the ridiculous 1500 lumen Deca Drive XXL to the 100 lumen Strip Drive rear light. Many of the lights include revised shapes and mounting brackets or silicone straps while the rear lights gain accommodations for aero seat posts. We should have a few these in soon for a closer look.

That GPS watch…wow.

They might as well strap one of their floor pumps to a top tube and call it portable.

You’re seriously don’t think that this GPS watch is better looking than any of the Ambits by Suunto, do you?

Secret Agent Watch – I thought today was September 1st not April 1st!

That GPS watch? It doubles as a cooking element when you get lost, waiting for search & rescue…

My fancy looking lezyne floor pump failed after about 5 uses topping off my road bike.
Maybe that actually make good products, but to me that seem to make good looking products (making the watch even more ironic).
Case in point – The floor drive pump shaft diameter looks sturdy. But in actuality there is a lot of play in the thing and makes it feel cheap (which I believe it is). My old Serfas FP-200 may not look loft apartment chic, but it is still going and feels much better than my now broken floor drive. And I can easily read the gauge.

rant over.

My Lezyne floor pump has a nasty habit of unthreading all my valve cores. I hope this new pump head will reduce my loctite budget.

Do any of the headlights have a cutoff on the top of the output to reduce the light directed into driver’s eyes?

@Ben. They now come with a right angle chuck for tubeless valves. Its kinda annoying but way easier than having your valve core popped out

Why in the world would one want to reduce output-concern about light to drivers eyes? I wanna see AND be seen.

@Ben if you release the Hose Pressure then the Valve core will not remove. There is a small black button that takes care of that on the Chuck.

@Ben Same here!

Solution is to spit in it before threading it on. No joke!

Or do what I did, give up on their crappy heads and put on either a problem solvers air chuck head (on my MTB pump) or a silca brass head on my road pump. The pump themselves are great. Its just a crappy head.

There is nothing “ridiculous” about a 1500 lumen headlight. That’s about what one automobile headlight produces.

@Ben
@JBikes
and
@everybody else is right…
Lezyne pump heads suck. You can spit all you want to provide lubrication, but the Lezyne pump head does indeed have a bad habit of pulling out the valve core after you have pumped up your tube. Lezyne makes pretty blingy bling bling products, but their pump heads FLAT out suck. I’m not trusting the new pump head until some users confirm that it actually works.

I actually have zero issue with valve cores being removed (to me that says the threads on your core are eff’d or your not releasing pressure).
My issue is the internal valve in the pump failed (it catches sporadically) and in general the feel of the pump’s quality does not match its looks.

I may be willing to give them another try as failures happen, but at their price, I can’t oversee the poor quality feel (and yes, I ordered mine and didn’t have a chance to test prior to buying)

@Ajax and everyone else. The ABS-1 works when used correctly. Thread on the head, pump to required PSI, push the relieve button on the chuck which lets all the pressure out of the hose, and unthread the chuck.

@JBikes, the pumps are rebuildable. Call your local rep or them directly to have it repaired if needed.

We sell them all day long with little warranty issues and they have been great when we do.

@Aircubed, the goal is to be seen, not to blind drivers. If you’re driving a car at night, you don’t keep your high beams on in traffic for the same reason. It’s obvious that a cutoff still allows you to be seen well.

@Ajax- the new head looks to function exactly like a Birzman head, so I assume it will work well.

@pisssSquared, don’t agree bro. You keep looking for your obvious cutoff…to be seen.

PsiSquared

You don’t have to agree, AirCubed, but it’s pretty stupid to not care about putting too much light into drivers eyes such that they possibly become a danger to yourself. I suspect you’re not really sure how this stuff works, especially the optics part.

I have the same valve core pulling with my Lezyne pump. If Lezyne were VW they would be forced to replace all old chucks for free.
