Digital Pressure Over Drive Floor Pump
We love tubeless tires. Low PSI, fewer flats, no multi-day gluing process—the benefits go on and on. The only problem is getting the damned things to seat properly, a process that can be touch-and-go even in a shop with a compressor. Lezyne's Digital Pressure Over Drive Floor Pump equips the home mechanic with a compressor-esque blast of bead-seating pressure, so the simple act of installing new tires won't cost you a trip to the LBS and a 12-pack of microbrews.
The Over Drive's big supplemental can is manually inflatable by toggling a foot lever. When it's full, pop the lever, throw some shade at your sealant, and hope that your frame actually does have clearance for the new tires. You can also bypass the high-pressure can and use the pump as a regular floor pump while not trying to pin down those evasive beads.
Though it's a given with Lezyne, the pump's high-quality construction of steel and alloy warrants a call-out. The pump feels stable and solid—no rickety plastic base or wobbly piston/chamber interface. Even the hose is reinforced with a braided nylon sheath, giving it more durability (ostensibly to handle the additional PSI) but also—and more importantly—making it look really, really cool. Many of us leave our bikes in the front room because we figure they're as much a work of art as anything else we could display in there; Lezyne makes one of the only pumps that we've give similar pride of place to.
This particular iteration of pump genius is finished with Lezyne's ABS1 Pro chuck at one end and a precise, digital gauge at the other. The ABS1 Pro slips effortlessly onto both Presta and Schrader valves (if you're pressing hard, you're doing it wrong) and the digital gauge keeps you abreast of PSI up to 220 without making you estimate where exactly the quivering little arrow is pointing.

- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
the psi gauge is horribly innacurate. 5 psi off . complete garbage and absolutely useless. the thread on chuck is trash as well. pain to use and not worth the money. material feels low quality and the internals sound like they are falling apart. i want to return this item because it falls way below expectations . especially for a pump of this price .. i shouldnt have to pay return shipping to return this garbage. innaccurate website description as well.

The materials on this pump are amazing. Quality is top notch. But unfortunately it causes extreme frustration both in the shop and on the ride. First, the screw on chuck is a terrible design for tubeless setups. It doesn't "slip effortlessly on" as mentioned in the description. It has to be screwed on. The trouble is when you unscrew the chuck it can't help but also unscrew your presta valve to one degree or another. Tubeless valves are quite sensitive to changes in their position - if you accidentally unscrew, even slightly, the result can be a slow leak which means a flat tire in the middle of your ride. Lovely. You can be sure to tighten your presta valve again after using this pump, but this too can cause problems with slow leaks. Once a presta valve is installed and holding air it needs to be left in position. Second, the digital pressure gauge is horrendously inaccurate. This pump may as well not even have a pressure gauge. For some reason, the hose retains a lot of air, and I suspect this might be part of the problem. All of this air releases from the hose as you unscrew. And if you check the pressure with an accu-gage, you'll find that its nowhere near what the pump indicated. I mean... not even close. I haven't tried to seat a large tubeless tire with it yet. That might be the one thing it does well. If anyone has any ideas or solutions to these frustrations I'd appreciate it. This thing was not cheap. Maybe I'm just not using it right.
