FAST HAS NEVER BEEN THIS FUN
FAST HAS NEVER BEEN THIS FUN
The new short-travel trail-slayer. Built for speed up and down the trail. At home in races or on all-day rides.
Best Short Travel Bike Under $5,000
Fezzari is a company that has customer service on the brain.
Our look at the details suggest that the company has done their homework.
Initially [the factory direct] process may sound a bit cold and corporate, but in reality, it's quite the opposite.
GET A NATURAL HIGH - REAL QUICK
Engineered to decrease weight and increase velocity. State-of-the-art carbon manufacturing techniques make it powerful and lightweight.
Compliance where you want it and stiffness where you need it. Signal Peak is built to transfer power to the wheels, crank, and nowhere else.
FIT FOR RACING BUT COMFORTABLE FOR ALL-DAY RIDING
Pedals like a dream. Progressive TetraLink suspension gives you small bump sensitivity and bottom-out protection for more aggressive trails.
Tire clearance to fit 27.5+ up to a 29x2.6, giving you the option to customize your ride. The GA Link optimizes the geometry for the wheel size you choose.
We use the highest-end materials available and the newest technologies to make sure the bikes we make are the best you've ever ridden.

START WITH A BLANK SLATE
We started with a blank slate to make the fastest and funnest full suspension bike we have ever created.
FAST AND SMOOTH
Next - kinematics design (how the suspension moves and works). We wanted progressive 120mm of travel with bottomless feel, small bump compliance, and high anti-squat values for minimal pedal-bob and power transfer to get you to the top of the climb first.
CHECK EVERY DETAIL
We prototyped it in aluminum. This was for test-riding purposes to prove the geometry and suspension kinematics. This allowed us to make changes before designing in carbon. We weren't concerned about the frame aesthetics at this point.
SLEEK AND POWERFUL
Next, for the carbon frame, the goal was to make it strong, light, and fast. Tube shaping aids in stiffness, comfort, and compatibility with components, and style and design. Above all, we wanted to make it fun to ride.
We then made a full-scale 3D print of the frame. Why? To get at some of the details that no computer modeling program can tell you and to make sure no small issues were transferred to the carbon molds. It's rapid-prototyping at its best.
FROM CHAIN RINGS TO CABLE STOPS
A 3D printed prototype allows us to measure exact clearances for chain-lines, brake mounts, cable guides, crank clearances, water bottles, bolt shapes, tire clearances, and on and on. All this painstaking work helped us to make fine-tune adjustments to ensure the finished product would work perfectly.
The Signal Peak uses our new cutting-edge Long Fiber Smooth Construction (TM) carbon manufacturing technique that uses longer carbon fibers and less material to make the frame stronger and lighter (reducing weight by 20%). It also makes the tubing walls smooth and consistent to give you better quality.
GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND
We then put the Signal Peak through our testing standards, which are 130% of industry standard, and include four additional tests that are not required because we will not fail on quality. After all, every Fezzari is backed with a lifetime warranty.
The final phase before production was a full-carbon prototype. We wanted to know exactly how the bike would perform in real world trail conditions. We tested the bikes on world-class trails.

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?
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.
