Hello Tino,

Why is lzip -1 so much slower than for example xz -1?

Because lzip was designed to complement gzip and bzip2, not to replace them. See here[1] what I mean.
[1] http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/benchmark.txt

"Here are some tests showing how well lzip complements gzip and bzip2.
As you can see, compressed sizes for each file decrease almost monotonically from top (gzip -1) to bottom (lzip -9)."
