The Californian accessories manufacturer Lezyne and Danny MacAskill will renew their cooperation for another two years. Reason enough for Lezyne to launch its new MacAskill Signature products: the MacAskill Block Tool and the MacAskill Travel Drive Pump.
You don’t necessarily have to nail front flips from telephone boxes or jump down twenty-foot drops to be aware of the requirements for regular bike care. In the case of Danny MacAskill, who often exposes his famous orange Trial bike to extreme stress, bike care could not be more important. For a trained bike mechanic like Danny, who now enjoys bike maintenance in his down time, partnering up with the high-grade tool manufacturer Lezyne is a great pleasure. In fact, Danny hit the nail on the head with Lezyne: the quality of their tools and their stylish design are the main reasons, why the Scottish YouTube wunderkind chose to enter into a partnership with the bike accessories manufacturer.
MacAskill and Lezyne started their cooperation earlier this year and so far both sides have benefited from this decision. A corporate YouTube-project, already well over the million-click benchmark, shows Danny returning to his old work place, a small bike-shop in the city center of Edinburgh, where he tries out his new Lezyne-equipment for the first time:
During the summer, Danny took part in a bike mechanic workshop at a trial youth camp. Lezyne supported this event with a screwdriver workshop, where they taught kids how to utilize a bike multi-tool. You'll find the video here.
Danny MacAskill wants to continue this productive cooperation and signed up with Lezyne for another two years. On this occasion, the tool manufacturer launches two new MacAskill Signature products:
MacAskill Signature Block Tool: For a quick and flexible application on the bike at home or on the road; a reliable partner on any type of bike tour and equipped with all important components to adjust brake and saddle settings or similar "first-aid surgery”.
