CO2 inflators can be a convenient solution to a mid-ride flat. But. We've all been stranded because we reached into our saddle bag and — would you look at that — found that we forgot to replace the cartridge spent during our last run-in with a herd of goat heads. A dependable, high-PSI hand pump like the Lezyne Gauge Drive HP Pump has the benefit of never running out of fuel, so you don't have to rely on the largess of your fellow cyclists or make that all-too-familiar call of shame to a friend or significant other.
The pump's CNC-machined aluminum body incorporates an overlapping pump handle that adds distance to your pump strokes without making the Gauge Drive into an unwieldy, floor pump-sized monstrosity. At just 119 grams, it's more akin to the extra tube you have in your saddle bag. The pump's ABS flex hose includes a pen gauge that measures up to 120 PSI, eliminating the guesswork of a roadside flat repair. The hose is stored inside the pump's handle and is compatible with both Schrader and Presta valves.

Great Pump, Gauge Needs Improvement
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Love the build quality of this pump. The functioning also is top notch. The only complaint is that after testing the pressure gauge, the indicator is not very accurate...I think the 'hand test' of squeezing the tire is just as accurate. They make a similar pump with a digital readout which might have been the better option.
*Also want to note that after 3 uses I am seeing the marking on the gauge starting to wear off. The black numbers showing the PSI come off very easily so be carefule
Does its job
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a great little pump. It's doesn't seem to be super duper accurate, but it's good enough that it will save you if you have to repair and/or pump on the go.
