There’s no denying it, electronics have become a part of most our lives in some form. Even things like mountain biking can be improved upon with the use of GPS tracking. The ability to challenge yourself and others and track your fitness is useful for the casual user and professional. Legendary accessory company Lezyne has entered the cycling GPS market with 3 innovative models. Below you’ll find some info on them, for more details visit the Lezyne website.
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 StravaTM 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 Power GPS is a robust cycling computer which will sync with Bluetooth® Smart enabled iOS and Android devices. Once paired, the Power GPS will briefly display incoming texts, emails and phones calls. Now cyclists can conveniently stay updated and connected with family, work and friends while out on a ride. 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, and its lightweight design is enhanced by an elegant aluminum bezel. Furthermore, it is micro-USB rechargeable, runs for up to 22 hours and can record 200 hours of data.
The Super GPS is truly a super computer. It simultaneously utilizes ANT+TM 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 reliable and accurate ride data and is easily navigated with four buttons. The micro USB rechargeable unit is secured in a chic aluminum bezel and 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 GPS Ally is more than just an app; it’s the centerpiece of our interactive GPS platform. Using Bluetooth Smart technology, saved rides can be seamlessly synchronized to the app from the Lezyne Power and Super GPS units and subsequently analyzed at the Lezyne Root website. The app can also communicate with the Power and Super GPS computers, sending notifications of incoming phone calls, text and/or emails. It’s the next generation of the cycling app; keeping the rider organized and in touch with life while out for a pedal.
