Pinkbike Covers the GPS Mini at Sea Otter

Sea Otter was going off this last weekend, and Pinkbike was there to catch and report on all the action. Our booth got a little love as did our full line of GPS devices on hand for everyone to check out, but the ultra-compact Mini GPS seemed to get all the attention!

Pinkbike says, “Lezyne announced their new line of GPS computers at the Taipei Cycle Show, and had the full line on hand at Sea Otter. The Mini is the smallest unit, weighing only 30 grams with a claimed 10 hour run time. In addition to recording GPS data, the computer can display time, distance, speed, and elevation. MSRP: $139.99 USD.”

Bike Magazine Reviews the Lezyne Mini GPS

We here at Lezyne are obviously, truly excited about the release of our GPS line, which will be shipped out very soon! Bike Magazine has a nice review on the GPS Mini, the smallest of the three devices that will be available. The elegant Mini GPS is compact, powerful and ideal for the cycling minimalist. 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. An optimized GPS recording system stores up to 100 hours of data and can be easily accessed via flash drive technology. Rides are saved as .fit files for cross-compatibility with third-party interfaces like Strava™ and TrainingPeaks®. Housed in a stylish aluminum bezel, the computer features a simple three-button operation and is micro USB rechargeable for up to 10 hours of runtime.

“The Lezyne Mini GPS is the smallest stand-alone GPS unit we’ve seen, but the California-based brand has big goals. Ever since GPS units started making their way onto bicycles, there’s been one clear market leader: Garmin. There are some other nice units out there, but Garmin is slaying it with a whopping seven cycling-specific computers starting at just $130. Lezyne recently announced the release of three new computers in an effort to grab a piece of the global positioning pie, starting with the Mini GPS.”

New Benelux Lezyne Distributors

New Lezyne Distributors in Benelux

New Benelux Lezyne Distributors

Effective immediately, the Benelux region of Europe will have two new Lezyne distributors. They will be supplanting the recently disbanded Rivo Sports, which had been the sole distributor in this territory. Guru-Sport (www.guru-sport.com) will now manage Belgium and Luxembourg, with Oneway Distribution (www.o-w-d.nl) taking over the Netherlands.

“The Benelux market is very important for us, so it was a strategic decision to split them up,” said Lezyne’s Sales and Marketing Director Ulrike Prokasky. “Rivo Sports had been with us since day one and it was very unfortunate to see them have to close their doors. Ad Enzerink (owner of Rivo) was very loyal to us and has always had a true passion for Lezyne. It was Enzerink who built Lezyne into one of Benelux’ market leaders.”

The new distributors will be taking over a brand already well established in their markets. With the region’s countries reallocated, each sales team will be able to focus on their assigned areas, helping to take Lezyne to the next level. Furthermore, with Lezyne set to expand its product line, having two dedicated forces will allow for better and more efficient distribution of a growing range of goods.

“We are looking forward to working with Guru-Sport and Oneway Distribution,” Prokasky concluded. “Both have very strong sales teams and a great commitment to their brands.”
