lezyne digital pressure over drive floor pump gift for mountain biking dad

Lezyne Digital Pressure Over Drive Floor Pump

Dads love tubeless tires. Fewer flats mean more time riding trails! The only problem is getting them to seat properly. Lezyne’s Digital Pressure Over Drive Floor Pump equips your home mechanic with a compressor-esque blast of bead-seating pressure, so the simple act of installing new tires won’t cost dad 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 does have clearance for the new tires. Dad 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.
