Fezzari Wire Peak eMTB Now Available with Shimano EP8 Motor

Jan 11, 2021
by Fezzari Bicycles  


The Wire Peak is a very popular pedal-assist mountain bike in our stable and for good reason. It’s perfect for those wanting to explore more and take longer rides without compromising performance and for 2021 it has some nice updates including colors and spec.

What’s new?
The Wire Peak comes in the same 3 different build specs: the Comp, Elite, and Pro priced at $3599, $4599, and $5599 - but each build spec is packed with several significant upgrades for the new year. The Comp comes in a new matte olive color, and the Elite and Pro come in the option of matte olive or liquid silver.

Wire Peak Comp
The Comp now comes with a SRAM SX 12-speed drivetrain, 4-piston brakes, 140mm suspension front and rear and is paired up with the Shimano E7000 motor system. This is a fantastic option for those in need of a high-quality and capable ebike without breaking the bank.

Wire Peak Elite
For the new year the Elite is running DVO Diamond D3 160mm fork and the 140mm Topaz 1 air shock in the rear. It also features the new Shimano EP8 motor system which gives it the extra torque and power to get up those extra punchy climbs. The Shimano SLX 12-speed drivetrain does the gear changing and TRP Slate T4 brakes do the stopping on this build. An excellent build option for the enthusiast who wants to take the performance and experience to the next level.

Wire Peak Pro
And finally, the Pro will also run the new Shimano EP8 motor along with Fox Performance Elite 160mm 36 Grip2 fork and 140mm Float DPS. Shimano XT 12 speed drivetrain and XT brakes take care of smooth gear changes and ample stopping power. The Pro rolls on Stan’s Flow EX3 29er wheels for quickness and durability.

Wire Peak update

The Fezzari Promise
As with all Fezzari bikes, the Wire Peak frame is backed with a Lifetime Warranty and is custom built to each rider’s body measurements through Fezzari’s 23-Point Custom Setup. Each Fezzari bike also comes with a 30 Day Love it or Return it Guarantee.

 I’d wager that if Fezzari wasn’t named Fezzari, they’d sell more bikes. Then again, I just bought a Propain.

 Agreed. Dumb name for a brand. Classic case of ego and the owners desire to have their name in the spotlight. Same as all those badly produced local tv commercials featuring mattress and furniture salesmen starring in their own ads.

 How about Lambozzini. Or maybe since it's electric, Tezzla.

Agree I'd strongly consider rebranding if I were at the helm. The brand name though is made up, not a literal name, something the owner's kid came up with (or something).

 @Dustfarter: Reminds me of the aliexpress companies who try to borrow a respected western brand. It's so obviously not an original name that it delegitimizes it.

I always thought Giant was the dumbest name in the bike industry but this is right up there with it. But the success of Giant shows that if you have decent bikes and stick with it people will eventually get used to the dumb name.

I recall looking it up sometime.

The owner/creators kid came up with the brand name. So AFAIK, it wasn't an intentional play on "Ferrari".

Which isn't to say that the kid might not be obsessed with cars...

 A friend of mine has both a Fezzari road and mountain bike (La Sal Peak). He loves them both and they were well-spec'ed for the price. He got the La Sal Peak as a expensive option relative to the Ibis Ripmo, against which several reviewers have compared it favorably.

I can get past the name, goofy though it is but, and I acknowledge this makes me shallow, I cannot get past the looks. The crimped top tube just looks silly.

The road bike (Empire I think) is a good looking rig though.

 I own the Fezzari Wire Comp for 2 years now and no major issues. I did upgrade the suspension on it and its been a great eMTB, able to do all of the trails that of my eMTBing buddies are doing on Levo's, Trance's, & Decoy's.
The Wire Comp & Elite for the price and spec is a deal, if you are someone that's not sure if eMTB is for you it's a way to give it a go and not have to take a 2nd on your house.

 Why is it that no one sells frame only E-Bikes? Seems like that would be fairly popular?

While I'm not in the market for an E Bike (they're not legal on any trails where I live), I just find it odd that its pretty common for normal bikes, yet I've never seen it for an E bike.

 100% agree I wanted to change all sorts when I got my Heckler, would have prefered a frame/motor only option.

Thats the first one I've ever seen. Nice find.

Its just as expensive than this Fezzari complete... Or the Marin one :/.

 Fezzari will customize the bike for you with the components you want. I would wager it's not available as a frame usually since it's not the most user friendly to set up the motor and battery.

When I was envisioning a frame only E bike being sold, I was thinking it would come with the motor, and battery already installed/setup.

So you'd just have to provide fork, wheels, drivetrain, brakes, and cockpit, like a "normal" bike.

 @ocnlogan: I understand, but routing all of those things internally through the frame will usually involve removing the battery and motor and possible the battery mount that bolts into the frame.

 Those bikes look sleek AF! Oh, wait, no, that's not true, is it...

 Honestly, the Elite build looks pretty good. DVO suspension, TRP brakes, SLX drivetrain on a modern ebike? It's not pretty, but it's probably a nice ride.

 I agree, not in the market, but that's the route I'd go.

 I mean at least you get lead times. Not everyone is as transparent with that under the current circumstances.

 Explore more and take longer rides...uh no not with a ebike these days what 20 miles at the most then what..I'll wait till the 1000wtt battery until then can peddle longer and explore further than any ebike can

 Nice bikes. The elite is an amazing deal. I dont think id change anything

 30 week wait for most sizes

 The lead times are a bit tough to chew right now, we agree The first few production runs of these bikes have already been pre-sold, and many have already shipped, to customers who placed their orders for the previous build spec. We are working as quick as possible with component makers to shorten these lead times. The lead times you see on our website are the next available dates for a given size and build spec.

 @Fezzari: any frame only options in the works?
  • 1 0
 @InstantBreakfast: No frame/motor/battery options in the immediate future. Each motor system requires us to calibrate and test that the assist speed is setup and functioning properly. We have been looking at some work arounds to make frame kits an option in the future as we know there is a demand for it. However, long component lead times won't make this a viable option until 2022 or later.

 fezzari bikes are total shit, I've never seen so many cranks in a frame, then upon receiving the warranty front triangle, the tolerances were out by like 1/4" to get the rear linkages in place, basically its was the cheapest poorest engineered hunk of shit I have ever seen .
