Danny MacAskill is a professional trials rider, born and raised in Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Danny first became known to the world of bikes in 2009 after releasing a youtube video that showed his riding style and immense depth of talent. 28 million views later, Danny is now a sensation and monster player in the bike industry, pushing trials and general boundaries on the bike to the limits. Since then, Danny has performed in a Volkswagen commercial, was nominated for "Action Sportsperson of the Year" as well as receiving nomination for "National Geographic Adventurer of the Year". It was at this time that Danny was able to dedicate his full time and energy into his passion: riding bikes. Danny’s major bike sponsor is Santa Cruz. He is also sponsored by Red Bull, GoPro, Endura, Adidas, FiveTen, Crankbrothers and more. In 2012, Danny Macaskill chose to partner with Lezyne. Having worked in a bike shop and on his own bikes for so long, he certainly appreciates the beauty, function, and durability of Lezyne’s entire product line. To sum it up in a few words, Lezyne couldn’t be happier to work with Danny this year and hopefully for years to come.
Favorite Lezyne product: The V16 Tool. "It includes everything I need, regardless of whether I am building up a completely new bike or setting up my bike on projects or just being out riding. I use it on all occasions. It just fits perfectly in my pocket and replaces pretty much a full tool kit."
