Lezyne Road Drive Mini - in brief review£38.00

Impressive mini pump

BikeRadar score4/5

Lezyne’s Road Drive comes in three sizes and we tested the largest – but even that’s only 28cm long and weighs in at 127g.

With a claimed maximum pressure of 160psi it had a lot to live up to – but our doubts proved groundless. The length and the 18cm stroke mean you get up to a very good pressure at double-quick speed. This reached around 80psi after 200 strokes, one of the highest figures of any pump we’ve tested.

The pumping action is very good too, with a Presta-only reversible hose: one end has Lezyne’s excellent screw-on chuck, the other Lezyne’s ‘Slip Fit’, for use if you’re in a hurry. Both work very well, each of them creating a solid connection.

The only negative – apart from the price – is that the barrel can get warm. The bracket, like the pump, is alloy, but despite being metal it still only adds 12g.
