Fezzari Signal Peak bridges XC-trail gap

27.5 29er All Mountain Trail Cross Country News Plus
Signal Peak

Fezzari’s top-of-the-line Signal Peak Pro sells for $6199 with a SRAM Eagle XX1 drivetrain.

The lines of cross country and trail are more and more blurred. Indeed, modern XC race bikes are more fun than ever. Slack head tubes, longer travel, and better handling are all part of the new normal.

Take the new Fezzari Signal Peak, which artfully blends speed and fun. It’s fast on technical terrain, drops, and rock gardens, and climbs like a mountain goat.

Key Highlights
  • 120mm travel for the aggressive XC trail rider
  • 2000 gram frame weight (Size Medium)
  • 68° head angle and short 430mm chainstays
  • 75° seat angle-for more efficient pedaling
  • GA Link to optimize geometry for 29 or 27.5+ wheels
  • 27.5×2.8 or 29×2.2-2.6 tire clearance
  • Custom designed rattle-free cable routing
  • Two water bottle mounts inside the front triangle on all sizes
  • Custom-molded downtube and chainstay protector
  • English threaded bottom bracket for easy maintenance
Signal Concept

The primary design goal was to create a fun do-it-all bike that could also carry two water bottles.

“Just as the sport has evolved, so too have the bikes we design,” Fezzari explained. “The all-new Signal Peak was designed to take you to the top of the climb first, with a powerful pedaling platform, advanced tube shaping and carbon construction for maximum power transfer. But it can also charge through technical rock gardens, drops, and root sections with ease because of the progressive suspension design and trail capable geometry. The Signal Peak just begs to be ridden fast.”

Every detail was poured over to create a frame that will stand up to modern cross country abuse.

The Fezzari Racing Design Tetra-link suspension has been optimized for the Signal Peak to deliver a pedaling platform that’s efficient, while the 120mm of travel eats up the technical sections of the modern XC race or ride. The progressive nature of the Tetra-Link suspension gives the Signal Peak a plush ride for all-day adventures and marathon XC racing.
