Fezzari has added a new trail model to its mountain bike portfolio.

The Coloradan brand’s Delano Peak is a 135mm dual-suspension 29er, which positions between the brand’s 120mm Signal Peak down country bike and 150mm Le Sal Peak enduro frame.

Unlike other Fezzaris, the Delano Peak’s new frame trims the top tube profile, to deliver more flowing industrial design lines.

Balancing 150mm of front fork travel with a 135mm rear, Fezzari’s Delano Peak is capable of descending notably technical terrain.

With a 65-degree head angle the Delano Peak keeps its rider in a confidence position when rolling over technically challenging trail features, while a 77.5-degree seat angle provides a powerful pedalling position on steep climbs.

Capable of running 29x2.6in tyres the Delano Peak’s rear triangle has adequate mud clearance for those mountain bikers who ride conventional wide-trail specification 2.4in rubber. Geometry adjustment is also available courtesy of Fezzari’s geometry adjust flip-chip.

Roomy reach numbers 

With its new frame design, Fezzari has managed to stretch the Delano Peak’s reach to 480mm (on a size large), whilst also shaping a deep insertion seat tube profile. For those riders who desire to fit the longest possible dropper seatposts, the Delano Peak’s has an excellent capacity. On a size medium, you should comfortably mount a 200mm ‘dropper.

Frame details for the Delano Peak include two hydration bottle mounting points in the front triangle, giving riders an option to avoid the bother of carrying a hydration backpack on long rides in sweltering heat.

With its threaded bottom bracket, a Fezzari Delano Peak should remain relatively creak free, even after a summer’s worth of riding in fine dust conditions. The frame’s internal cable routing also feature additional securing clips, to mitigate any rattling issues.

Fezzari is marketing the Delano Peak as a $2,299 frame-only option, with six builds available too. These start from $3,499 for a Comp and increase in price to $8,999, for the Peak Team AXS version, rolling Enve wheels and featuring Fox Factory suspension components.
