Empire

King of the Road

Named after an epic road ride, the Empire is the do-it-all road bike that you will actually like to ride (Oh, and get you there faster than anyone else).

Summiting the 19,341 feet of Mt. Kilimanjaro is hard enough and doing it by bike is something few have ever accomplished. The Iron Cowboy took the Solitude and himself to the limits. Every Fezzari is tested in real world conditions to make sure you get the best ride possible.

Reviews



"A new frame molding technique that creates strong, lightweight frames at a seriously enticing price point. It's not just lighter, it’s stronger, too. Cross-country-mountain-bike-impact-standards-passing stronger... You’re able to talk to a real person when ordering to make sure everything is exactly how you want it."

"Molding the frame as a single piece cuts down on manufacturing, which helps reduce cost, drops weight, and even increases the frame stiffness."

"Hottest New Bike. The Empire had the vibration damping of an endurance road bike, but it felt more responsive under hard pedaling (the short 410mm chainstays probably contribute to the acceleration). Thoughtful details like full internal cable routing and 32mm tire clearance make the Empire a legit contender going into 2020."

"It’s an impressive package. The MonoForm method not only saves material, which saves weight, but it makes it easier for them to tune the ride feel."

"Fezzari has always provided a huge overall value. Industry curmudgeons are being won over. Now, the brand is taking aim at the ideal road bike for the masses — the all-new Fezzari Empire SL.

Using MonoForm construction, the Empire SL’s carbon layup is done in one fell swoop as a single mold... It results in a consistent layup with the cleanest carbon compaction I’ve seen. With that optimization, the ride quality is said to be superb and the frame weight is an astounding 815 grams (56cm). That’s bonkers light for a disc-brake frame that’s built to exceed XC mountain bike testing standards."

Support

How many water bottle cages will it hold?

The Signal Peak will hold 2 cages inside the front triangle on every frame size.

What type of maintenance is required on the frame?

We believe in simplicity. That's why we designed the Signal Peak for minimal maintenance. All bearings are sealed. All bearings are replaceable. Dirt can get between the bearings and the bolts, so occasionally we recommend it be cleaned. Also, as with any suspension frame, we recommend that you check the tightness of the bolts on your frame. Check the bolt for the recommended torque setting.

Are the cables routed underneath the bottom bracket?

No. We routed them on the top side of the downtube, minimizing cable movement, wear, and potential damage.

Does the Signal Peak have cable slap on the internally routed cables that is common on other bikes?

No. We specifically engineered the Signal Peak to minimize cable slap by designing adaptive, future-proof, rattle-free cable guides.

What type of bottom bracket does the Signal Peak have?

It is an English thread standard bottom bracket for easy maintenance and increased durability.

How much does the frame weigh?

2200 grams

What type of derailleur hanger does it have?

The Signal Peak has a custom designed derailleur hanger with Frame Defense Technology that includes having the threading in the derailleur hanger and not the frame to minimize potential frame damage.

How big of tire will the Signal Peak handle?

27.5 x 2.8 or 29 x 2.6.

Every Fezzari comes with a lifetime warranty on the frame. Click here to read more.
