Last week at the Taipei bike show, Lezyne was teasing two new pumps that look awfully close to production.

A foot actuated lever allows you to pressure (or rapidly depressurize) the air chamber of the new Lezyne Pressure Overdrive Pump.

The Pressure Over Drive works along the same lines as the Bontrager Flash Charger. Use it like an ordinary pump until you flip the integrated foot lever, which allows the oversized aluminum chamber to be manually pressurized. Hitting the switch releases a shot of air that will help seat tubeless tires.

The Micro Floor Drive XL, which is a oversized version of Lezyne’s popular floor pump is designed to work with the biggie sized tires found on plus and fat bikes.

Pricing and availability has yet to be announced, but we expect to learn more at next month’s Sea Otter Classic.

    Fancy, but I just keep my vanilla Ascent floor pump. Not “fat bike” certified yet good for all of them (works fine even for car tire).

      You’re right, a normal pump will work just fine, but having the right tool for the job makes a difference. For example, I could use a high pressure pump to inflate my mountain bike tires, but takes substantially longer…and that high volume pump I use for seating tubeless tires on my mountain bike? It maxes out well before the air pressure needed to fill my road bike tires up. Different strokes for different folks?

    Didn’t Bontrager do this 2 years ago with the flash charger?

    Luckily Lezyne brings overdrive pump with digital gauge – which other companies do not offer yet.
