Lezyne releases new 'gravel-specific' floor pump range

The Gravel Floor Drive series promises fast, accurate inflation for mid-volume tyres. Also works on non-gravel bikes too...

Lezyne has released the new Gravel Floor Drive series of pumps with analogue and digital gauges. Designed for tyres that are 32mm wide and larger, the pumps feature an effective max pressure rating of 100PSI and claim to have an accuracy level of +/- 0.5 psi.

2021 Lezyne Gravel Floor Drive Pro 1

We have reviewed plenty of gravel bikes, tyres, handlebars and clothes... but a gravel-specific floor pump? That's a new one. 

"Featuring a barrel diameter optimised for fast, easy inflation of gravel tyres, the Gravel Floor Drive series pushes more air per stroke letting riders spend less time pumping and more time riding," says Lezyne.

The Gravel Digital Drive Pro and the Gravel Floor Drive both have a 3.5in digital gauge for accurate inflation, while the Sport Gravel Floor Drive is the more affordable analogue (dial) option.

Lezyne’s gravel floor pumps feature the brand’s new Tubeless Chuck. With a flippable design, this Tubeless Chuck threads on to Presta valve cores, or with the valve core removed, directly onto the Presta valve shaft, to provide greater airflow for seating most tubeless tyres. The chuck also features an integrated valve-core tool for easy valve tightening and removal.

A versatile, extra-long hose promises easy inflation whether your bike is on the ground or in the workstand.

Each pump is manufactured in-house by Lezyne and the rebuildable internals promise long-lasting performance.

Prices are as follows…

Gravel Digital Drive Pro: £110

Gravel Floor Drive: £90

Sport Gravel Floor Drive: £70

Does the pump only work when you are standing on gravel?

I think there's a typo... shouldn't it be 'gullible-specific'...?

And the utter rubbish associated to the latest Fad keeps on coming ...

Maybe a fad for you, but I've never done the TdF nor pumped more than about 65psi into my tyres. So all these pumps boasting 160psi are not my scene. I'd far rather have a wider bore pump and get the job done in fewer strokes. That said, I don't see why that should cost a penny extra.

Haven't such pumps long existed? And they worked on hybrids and MTBs too...

I think it's the marketing BS that people are noting, rather than the concept of a pump which is more focused on larger volume, lower pressure tyres.

It's not that nonsensical. Gravel tyres don't need high pressures so floor pumps that can go well over 150psi are not necessary ( unless to charge an airshot). Something that can shift air quickly at mid pressures does make sense, as does a chuck that can latch onto a valve stem without a valve core.

I could see the logic for a mini-pump but for a floor pump this seems a bit unnecessary. I've never found it an issue pumping up high-volume tyres with a standard "road" track pump - they can still shift a decent amount of air! And while I know there's a trend towards running lower pressures on the road too, I don't want a different track pump for each bike, so a pump that can't get above 100psi seems to be a bit limited. 

I guess a slightly higher volume output might help seat tubeless tyres, but for the really tricky ones I still think you'd want an airshot or similar - and a pump that can top it up to a nice high pressure!

I was "encouraged" to pump up the better halfs motor vehicle tyres this afternoon, so that we could go and pick up my replacement Ultimate Commuter" frame (Yay!).  Shit those tyres took a lot of pumping.

I wish my Topeak Turbibooster X chuck would seat on the presta stem, unfortuantely it needs a valve core, I will break one to improve the airflow.  My first bit of critisism of Topeaks excellent pump stuff.  I might check to see it the SmartHead I have on my JoeBlow does, I could swap them over when needed.

Lezyne pumps do unfortuanely often have a little more style over substance, maybe this pump range is different.

All aboard the gravel bandwagon...

mbprouser | 3 years ago

Oh for goodness sake! What a load of nonense. I see it now, next month someone will launch a disc -brake wheel only pump...

Gravel pumps, with gravel pricing! 

kil0ran replied to zero_trooper | 3 years ago

Wow, a Lezyne pump designed for a valve with the core removed, as opposed to one that removes it for you at the side of the road 10 miles from home on a cold, wet, and windy November night.

Yes! I've been there  2

When your fingers are freezing and you can't get any purchase on the valve core.

andy_schweiz replied to kil0ran | 3 years ago

Yeah, you pump it up only to unscrew the core too and start all over again🤬🤬🤬

I've several Lezyne pumps from mini to floor pumps (no gravel pump though 🤣🤣) and the pumps themselves are well made. Flip thread chucks are just a PITA though.

I've had just as many nightmares including ripped valve stems, non-sealing pumps and corrosion with toppeak, sks, BBB and others though.
