Premiere cycling accessories manufacturer Lezyne has yet again updated its advanced collection of GPS devices. This new update partners Lezyne with the innovative adventure-planning brand Komoot, and with the interactive sharing platform of Relive. This further bolsters Lezyne’s third-party compatibility that already features Strava, TrainingPeaks and Today’s Plan.
“We are very excited to team up with Komoot and Relive,” says Dillon Clapp, Lezyne’s worldwide marketing manager. “Both brands offer such a fun, interactive community, and we know our GPS users will be thrilled to have these additional features added to our GPS platform.”
The rapidly growing Komoot boasts over 10 million users and offers one of the best interfaces for planning and navigating routes around the world. When a Lezyne and Komoot account are connected, routes created with Komoot can be wirelessly sent to a Lezyne GPS device through the Lezyne Ally phone app. Once transferred, turn-by-turn directions are available, along wit a navigation trail overlay on the map screen (compatible devices only).
“Komoot is excited to partner with Lezyne to provide world-leading routing and navigation across Lezyne’s range of GPS devices," says Ben Thompson, Komoot’s director of business.
Relive features a community of over five million members, who can share their adventures using story telling, animated 3D videos and more. Now, activities recorded using a Lezyne GPS device and uploaded to Lezyne’s GPS Ally phone app or GPS Root website can be shared seamlessly with Relive, either automatically or manually.
Relive’s co-founder, Joris van Kruijssen, explains, "We are thrilled to welcome Lezyne users to the Relive community with this new partnership, enabling more people around the world to share their outdoor adventures like nothing else!"
Activating these new features with Lezyne’s GPS platform is free, but does require a quick update to the Lezyne GPS device and companion smartphone app (check the app store if automatic updates are not selected).

Additionally, both Komoot and Relive offer a free version of their respective platforms, with upgrade options to unlock further comprehensive and interactive features.
And, as with all Lezyne GPS firmware updates, even more enhancements to their existing interface will be implemented. Lezyne’s in-house programmers are continually improving the user experience, and this time around Lezyne’s custom rerouting engine has been optimized to reroute users much quicker when navigating exceptionally long A-point to B-point type routes, should they go off course.
