What is it
The Cascade Peak Pro 29 is Fezzari’s new all-mountain machine. Built around their AT529 frame design, it has adjustable GA-Link geometry to keep a consistent BB height when changing between 27.5+ and 29er set-ups. The Tetralink AT529 suspension delivers 130mm of travel, and is said to improve pedaling efficiency and add a more progressive curve for a bottomless feeling. And of course, like all Fezzari bikes, the Cascade Peak Pro 29 is shipped direct to your door.
- Easy out of the box build
- Fits 29er and 27.5+ wheels
- Attractive price
- Attention to detail
- Limited color options
- Dropper post setup can be difficult for new users
When told a new bike will arrive at my house and require no adjustment before riding, I’m skeptical. But I’m currently eating my words and enjoying my first snowy test rides on Fezzari’s new Cascade Peak Pro.
The tester Fezzari arrived just days after completing their on-line 23-Point Pre-Purchase Fit questionnaire. In a box only slightly bigger than your average bike box was a pre-built, highly tuned-fun machine, fit to my body and riding style waiting to hit the woods. Minutes after opening and cutting a few zip ties, the bike was nearly built. All tools required for assembly were included, along with an easy-to-follow one-sheet. Within 15 minutes the bike was built (fork and shock we set up to my weight before shipping) and I was out the door and spinning.
Mtbr’s first test rides were on snow covered Pennsylvania single track, perfect for sliding in and out of turns. Indeed, Fezzari’s Cascade Peak has a confidence inspiring nature and accelerates quickly. I especially liked how it handled in tight turns and switchbacks, stable but not too long to whip around.
We are still racking up test miles on the Cascade Peak and will have more to say in a couple weeks. In the meantime, cruise over to the Fezzari website and check out the different build options available.
