Making its first public appearance at their own parking lot overland expo, Fezzari’s new Explorer Peak e-fat bike brings big batteries and big tires to winter adventures.
The bike has a full carbon frame powered with Shimano drive systems, with two builds available. The Comp model gets the EP601, and the Elite gets the EP801, both with a with a 720Wh Darfon battery. An 835Wh battery upgrade will be available, too.
Shimano’s own batteries max out at 630Wh, so Fezzari’s likely spec’ing alternates to increase total power. Which is a good thing if you’re riding in the freezing cold as it can sap smaller batteries more quickly.
The bike is up for pre-order only with delivery in early 2024 and full details aren’t released. So, specs may change, but the $4,599 Comp model gets a Shimano CUES 11-speed drivetrain. The $5,499 Elite model gets SRAM GX Eagle Transmission.
Both roll on Sun-Ringle Mulefut SL wheels and Maxxis Colossus 27.5×4.5 tires. It comes stock with a carbon rigid fork with cage mounts. But, it appears to have a Manitou Mastodon suspension fork upgrade, which itself just got an upgrade.
Pre-orders get $200 off the retail price. A refundable $100 deposit secures your spot. Watch the unveiling on their Instagram.
