Our previous Editors' Choice award winner, Lezyne's Steel Floor Drive pump has a sleek, sexy look to it, simultaneously classic and modern, which screams quality. It reminds us of something we'd see in a grandfather's garage, a pump that's been quietly working whenever called into service over the last 60 years or so… but also looks like it belongs next to a fixed-gear rig in a $3000/month Williamsburg apartment.
Aside from some moderate gauge accuracy issues, this pump was also an excellent performer in our tests. The head uses Lezyne's unique and user-friendly ABS1 flip-thread design. The hose is long, the base is solid, the gauge is clear. Pumping with it is quick and requires little effort. Overall, it's a strong performer that looks great, it has the durability to go the distance, and people love using it. That's good enough for us.
