What is it

Think Lezyne products and you typically envision aluminum crafted pumps, tools, and accessories, but not electronics. Well, that is about to change. Lezyne entered the GPS/cycling computer market with a bang and has been refining its offerings ever since. Lezyne recently released the Enhanced Super GPS, which is available with a heart rate strap and speed/cadence sensor. It’s a one stop bundle for training and tracking.
Lezyne Super GPS Load computer bundle comes with:
- Forward Mount
- X-Lock Standard Mount
- Heart Rate Flow Sensor
- 2-in-1 Cadence Speed Flow Sensor
- Micro USB Charging Cable
- Coin cell batteries
The Lezyne Enhanced Super GPS exudes heavy duty durability and top end functionality with minimal buttons. Honestly, I typically do not take to change quickly, but this display is familiar and intuitive to anyone who owns or has owned other cycling GPS units. Simple buttons, crafted from soft rubber are easy to push on rides with full fingered gloves. A dedicated background light button helps ease illumination, but is not needed to conserve battery life.
And the Lezyne Super GPS battery life is like no GPS unit I’ve used for training. A full charge will last for nearly 24 hours. I have yet to run down the head unit fully but in all honesty, I’ve only charged it a single time with many cold weather rides. That extended battery life is a massive benefit over similar GPS computers, which regularly max out at 13 hours in warm weather. Long battery life is a bonus for riders like myself who routinely forget that electronics require charging.
Lezyne Enhanced Super GPS Tracks:
- Speed, either from GPS data or bike mounted sensor
- Distance, using GPS data or bike mounted sensor
- Elevation gain and loss, calculated from GPS data and barometer
- Cadence, either from bike mounted sensor or power meter
- Power when using a power meter, either ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart
- Heart Rate when paired with an ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart sensor
Using the Lezyne Enhanced Super GPS is similar to its design — simple and to the point. Buttons are labeled on sides of the unit, making users feel at ease and not overwhelmed with cryptic hidden features.
Hooking up to power meters (BlueTooth and ANT+) is simple. Same goes for activating Lezyne’s translucent red heart rate strap. A new feature for Lezyne is pairing and working seamlessly with smart trainers. I was able to pair the Super Enhanced GPS to a CycleOps Hammer unit in minimal time with no fuss. Customizable screens are a nice touch for those who like to see different metrics. I enjoy seeing the battery life on all my units displayed, something that no other unit I’ve used has featured.
Features like GPS, live tracking, and Strava segments can be found and tweaked through updating and Lezyne GPS V2 App (available via Google Play, Android and IOS platforms). Don’t worry Strava users, Lezyne has thought of you too. Live segments and tracking is a quick install and user-friendly. It’s nice to see Strava and live monitoring available on a unit that is cost effective and minimal.
The Super GPS also offers a cookie crumb style GPS, using line/icon display and updates as movement occurs. Easy enough to use, it’s nice to have Lezyne GPS App installed if you need to drill deep into road names or are in unfamiliar territory.
Lezyne Enhanced Super GPS X-Lock mounting unit is heavy duty, almost hard to get the unit out at first. This mounting is well-received for me when riding roots and rocks, where my Garmin has ejected, Enhanced Super GPS was there, recording heart rate and segments; stoked.
Riders looking for clean and straightforward tracking look no further. Lezyne Enhanced Super GPS offers much for a low asking price and delivers steadily. For any riders looking for a classic design GPS unit that will track all essential data without riding cell phone on your bars, this is your unit. Small enough to hardly notice but big enough to follow turn by turn directions. No excuses for not tracking your rides or metrics, as you can get Lezyne Enhanced Super GPS Fully Loaded for 75% price of lesser units.
