07.31.2017 - 6 of the best: CO2 inflators - Bikeradar
"With a minimalist CNC’ed aluminium head, the Control Drive feels high quality. Despite its small size, attention to detail is high too. A rubber seal engages with the cartridge threads as soon as you begin loading the inflator, which means little gas is lost before the valve is opened. The head slips easily over both Schrader and Presta valves, and the control knob is knurled for grip and simple to operate."

"One of the best CO2 valves we’ve used now comes in colours."
11.17.2014 - Road.cc Reviews the Lezyne Control Drive CO2 Inflator
"Lezyne's new Control Drive CO2 Inflator makes it really easy to get any Presta or Schrader inner tube fully inflated. It provides easy control of the flow of gas and has a jacket to protect your hands from freezing to the canister during use."
Two kit options available: Two 20-gram CO2 cartridges or no cartridges, and a simple Velcro strap.

Through a really smart design, Lezyne managed to squeeze quite a few features into an all-in-one setup. The black canister houses 5 spare plugs and covers the awl so it doesn’t stab anything that it’s not supposed to. The inflator has a dial, so you can modulate how you exhaust the CO2...it’s an inflator, a brilliantly thought out plug kit (that works better than most any other minimalist combo options) and tidy storage for spare plugs.

"Lezyne came up with the concept for this tire plug/CO2 blaster combo a couple of weeks ago and, in record timing, expect it to be ready to purchase within the next month. Lezyne machined their existing Tubeless kit repair to integrate seamlessly with their trigger drive CO2 inflation. The kit has 5 plugs and a 16g CO2 canister. Use the tire plug and inflate all in one!"
4.19.2019 - Lezyne Tubeless CO2 Blaster fills and plugs your tire in one move - Zach Overholt, Bikerumor.com
"Housed in a protective tube, the Tubeless CO2 Blaster is an extension of their [Tubeless Kit] which adds a CO2 inflator to the plugger tool.Add a tubeless plug to the tool, insert it into the hole in the tire, and let ‘er rip on the CO2 inflator. The CO2 goes into the tire, and the plugger prevents it from leaking out. Then when you’re done inflating it, you pull the plugger from the tire leaving the plug in place, filling the hole."
4.17.2019 - Sea Otter 2019 - The Leftovers - Travis Engel, BIKE Magazine
"The nifty new gadget is so new, it barely made it across the pond from Lezyne’s factory in time for the show. It’s essentially an inflator and plug insertion tool in one...Because its traditional fork-style insertion tool uses traditional bacon-strip plugs, you can use however many of whichever plug you want. And there’s an integrated reamer at the base of the tool to rough up the surface area for better adhesion. The air is released by a separate valve instead of by twisting the CO2 cartridge, which makes that crucial moment a little more controlled...The Tubeless CO2 Blasticer will go for $50, and it’ll be available late this spring."
02.12.2021 - Lezyne CNC Tubeless Drive review – the swiss army-knive of mini-pumps? - ENDURO Mountainbike Magazine
"The Lezyne CNC Tubeless Drive is the Swiss Army knife among tubeless puncture kits. Thanks to the MTB-specific design, tires can be repaired quickly and inflated in no time with the robust, high-quality alloy pump."
04.13.2020 - Lezyne's CNC Tubeless Drive Pump has a Secret - Pinkbike
"Somewhere in the middle of parasite and doomsday prepper is the responsible rider with a pump strapped to their bike 24/7. Just in case. Lezyne's new CNC Tubeless Drive mini-pump has all the bits you'll need in those just-in-case moments, as well a bunch of features to make the job easier...It's also a mountain bike-specific, high-volume pump that moves a lot of air quickly until you reach 30 psi, which is more than enough for most of us. If you'd rather skip the pumping and get back to the riding sooner, there's a 20-gram C02 cartridge hidden in the handle, along with the inflator, to speed things up. Lezyne has also found room for a bunch of tire plugs and the stabber thingy to install them."
Available with a 16g cartridge, a 25g cartridge, or as only the inflator head.
