Efficient Power Transfer

Empire has evolved from our previous gen road bike. Experience a 20.5% better head tube lateral stiffness allowing more confident cornering and better sprinting power. Ride with 15.3% more efficient rear wheel power transfer and a 3% stiffer bottom bracket. Efficiency = Power.

20.5% Lateral Stiffness

Damping Construction

Because of Monoform™ construction, vertical flexing seat stays, and 27.2mm seat posts, high speed road vibration is significantly reduced, making it the most comfortable road bike you’ll ride.

An Adaptible Ride

Tires up to 32c, which means more comfortable rides on all road conditions, and up to 3 cages in the front triangle for more hydration or your tool kit.

EMPIRE PASS

3,248ft Elevation Gain

Renowned for its challenging nature, the southern approach to Empire Pass stands out as one of Utah's toughest climbs. Notably, it has hosted professional cyclists during events like the 2012 Tour of Utah, when it was also utilized for the ascent.

Strength through technology.

By using Monoform™ construction – a true 1-piece mold – there is no bonding, no dead spots, and no frame alignment issues. The Empire even passed XC mountain bike standards during testing.

Beautiful on the inside and out.

CleanCast™ manufacturing results in carbon walls that are consistently uniform, free from joints, creases, excess resin, and wasted material.

Keeping it simple.

By streamlining the conventional manufacturing process, we have significantly decreased the likelihood of errors. There's no need for pre-bond machining since there's no bonding required. The absence of bonding eliminates the necessity for bond curing. Additionally, secondary alignments are no longer needed. As a result, we achieve enhanced frame strength and consistency.

Direct to Rider

We sell directly to you, the rider. This gives you unique advantages like getting your Empire custom fit to your body measurements, big savings on cost, and direct communication with us.

Quality That Matters

We tested the Empire 130% above industry standards. We want you to ride with the peace of mind knowing that this bike performs at an elite level, always.

Materials

By using the highest quality materials and newest technologies, we guarantee you’ll have the best riding experience.

Less waste and lighter frames though better technology.

We changed the carbon layup process. In traditional carbon layup processes, sheets of carbon are wrapped around air bladders with an object inside to help keep the form. After carbon is wrapped around the bladder, the object holding the shape is removed and the bladder and carbon fiber are placed in a mold, inflated, and cured. The problem? Carbon wrapping must be loose enough to remove the object before the curing process, which causes overlapping carbon fiber that weakens the frame, adds unnecessary weight, and creates possible air pocket voids that may cause frame failure. Our process is different. We eliminate overlapping fibers, air pocket voids, and tighten carbon wrapping. How do we do this? We use proprietary tooling designs, vacuum compacting, and a different type of internal mold to hold the carbon. The result: the frame is stronger, lighter, and manufacturing consistencies are dramatically increased. This is why we can back all our carbon frames with a lifetime warranty.

Stiffness and Strength

We use carbon fiber on frames, seat posts, forks, and other components. Carbon fiber is very light and can be made stiff or flexible. The term commonly used to describe stiffness is ''modulus''. Generally speaking, we want frames to be laterally stiff for efficient power transfer and vertically compliant for comfort and less fatigue when riding.

Design Process

All bikes are designed in-house in Lindon, UT and made with the upmost attention to detail.

Design to Reality.

banner

From initial conception to delivery to an ecstatic customer, we put in countless hours and resources to develop the best possible bikes. Passion, persistence, and constant refinement are our maxim as we hone our craft and deliver exceptional riding experiences to everyone who has the opportunity to ride a Fezzari. When one project is completed, we begin anew, synthesizing our acquired knowledge to develop the next generation of bicycle evolution.

Data-Driven Design.

At Fezzari, we prioritize rider fit and comfort in the design process of our bikes. To ensure that our bikes meet the needs of a diverse range of riders, we incorporate decades of real-world rider fit data into our design process. This data is collected through various means, including fitting sessions with professional bike fitters, feedback from riders, and ergonomic testing.

What are the headset dimensions?

The Standardized Headset Identification System (SHIS) is IS56 / 28.6 | IS56 / 40(45°). This is used with the 1.5”/1.5” headtube. We have chosen to use the FSA SRS headsets for simple, clean cable management. FSA ACR is also compatible if the matching stem is also used.

How much weight is saved with the SL frame?

250 grams size medium.

What are the dimensions of the front hub and fork axle?

The front hub is 100mm x 12mm. The axle dimensions are M12 x 120mm long x 14mm thread length x 1.50mm thread pitch.

How are the cables routed?

All cables are routed through the headset. We have chosen to use the FSA SRS headsets for simple, clean cable management. This also helps keep the cables out of the way if you install a handlebar bag.

Will this bike make me faster?

Yes, and more attractive.

What is the bottom bracket frame spec?

Press Fit 86.

What is the warranty/guarantee?

The Empire comes with a Love it or Return it Guarantee. It also has a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

How will the Empire arrive?

What about service?

You can work directly with us, one of our recommended shops, or work through your favorite shop.

Do you offer financing?

Yes, at checkout there are several options available for financing.
