IN­NO­VA­TION OF THE YEAR

Leyzne Macro Floor Dig­i­tal

Bikes Etc - - AWARDS 2017 -

You’d have thought that as we’re liv­ing through the dig­i­tal rev­o­lu­tion, that ana­logue gauges on track pumps would be a nov­elty by now rather than the stan­dard. That said it didn’t oc­cur to us that they could be dig­i­tal un­til we saw this. In fact, the first time we laid eyes on Lezyne’s Macro Dig­i­tal pump we made that pro­longed ‘Oooh!’ sound that slightly dim peo­ple make when some­thing ut­terly ob­vi­ous fi­nally oc­curs to them. Though, to be fair it’s a noise we make quite a lot. With but­tons that change the read­out from psi to bar, a bat­tery in­di­ca­tor and auto-on/off this is a truly smart pump. But it’s not just the dig­i­tal gub­bins that makes this a wor­thy win­ner, it’s the whole pack­age. This is a true track pump in the sense that it can achieve the very high pres­sures track rac­ers pre­fer to run their tyres at, ca­pa­ble of reach­ing 220psi with rel­a­tive ease. Not that it can’t be used for just about any kind of bike, whether you’re a roadie or an off-the-beaten-track type, thanks to a re­versible head with both Presta and Schrader valves. £49.99 / up­grade­bikes.co.uk
