Officially announced at the Taipei International Cycle Show last week, Lezyne unveiled their brand new line of bike computers. The full Lezyne GPS collection features three bike computers–the Power GPS, Super GPS, and Mini GPS–all offering a varying level of functionality, including the ability to pair with your phone and other bike sensors.
The smallest and lightest bike computer on the market (30 grams and barely larger than the size of a quarter), the Mini GPS is compact yet powerful. Simply turn it on, press start and go for a ride. Essential ride data is presented on a sharp, easy to read, semi-customizable display and logged for later analysis. The display also features auto-scrolling ride info, custom lap presets, and an optional auto start/stop function.
The bike computer stores up to 100 hours of data–rides are saved as .fit files for upload to third-party apps like Strava. Housed in a stylish aluminum bezel, the Mini GPS features a simple three-button operation and is micro USB rechargeable offering up to 10 hours of runtime.
The Power GPS pairs with your Bluetooth Smart devices including power and heart rate. It can also connect to the Lezyne Ally app on Bluetooth Smart iOS and Android smartphones allowing for on-the-fly email, text, and phone call notifications. A large, sharp display shows up to four data fields, with the bottom field formatted for auto scrolling or manual navigation.
Accurate and reliable ride details are displayed courtesy of an advanced GPS/Glonass chip that receives both US and Russian satellite signals. Four buttons operate the Power GPS that is micro-USB rechargeable, runs for up to 22 hours, and can record 200 hours of data.
The Super GPS makes use of both ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart, allowing for synchronization with iOS/Android devices, power meters, heart rate straps, and speed/cadence sensors. Notification of incoming phone calls, texts, and emails (with actual message text) are displayed on the computer’s large, sharp monitor, along with power, heart rate, and all other important ride details.
Advanced GPS information provides accurate ride data and is easily navigated with four buttons. The micro USB rechargeable unit can record up to 400 hours of ride info–rides are saved as .fit files (compatible with Strava and TrainingPeaks) and easily transferable via flash drive technology or through the Lezyne Ally phone app.
The Lezyne GPS bike computers range in price from $140 to $200 and are available at the end of this month. Pretty darn affordable compared to a standard $600 Garmin bike computer model.
