Fezzari has updated their fat bike, the Kings Peak, and the new bike is made for the “Ultra endurance rider, the bikepacker, or the adventure junkie.” Of course, the carbon fat bike can suit those who just want some big ol’ wheels to play around in the snow with too.
On this new Kings Peak, the frame has been completely redesigned and uses a MonoForm 1-piece frame design. The bike comes in four sizes, with complete builds starting at $2,399, and has already been tested on a traversal of Iceland. MonoForm uses a single-piece mold to eliminate bonding between the front and rear triangles that keeps the frame lighter and stronger.
Fezzari slacked the head tube angle to 67° for more stability when things get steep and the seat tube angle steepens to 75°. The chainstay is 450mm long and reach on a medium is 440mm with a 1184mm wheelbase which should keep the bike plenty stable on descents.
The Kings Peak will fit up to 26×5.0″ tires or 27.5×4.5″ tires. The bike can also use tires as narrow as 27.5×3.0″ which would make this pretty tempting to run as a bikepacking rig in the summer, especially since it’s packed with mounts.
Pricing starts at $1,500 for a frameset. For $2,400 the Comp build adds a SRAM NX 1×12 drivetrain, Sun Ringle wheels and Terrene Cakeeater tires. The Elite build sells for $2,900 and includes a SRAM GX drivetrain, and SRAM G2 R brakes. For more information, see the Fezzari website.
