Fezzari Bicycles (United States) - The Empire is known as “the do-it-all road bike” and has had a lot of success in Fezzari’s lineup It’s frame design is considered an ‘endurance-race’ geometry with versatility as a focus. Rough asphalt, high cross-winds, descents, climbs, etc. the Empire is a great quiver-killer for long endurance rides.
It’s also the first road bike to pioneer Monoform technology, our single-piece carbon frame construction making it light, strong, and a smooth ride.
The Empire is available in two carbon lay-up configurations, light and super light (SL). They each get a refresh with new unique colors: Black on Carbon and Lava Red in the SL version, and Bonneville Blue, Emerald Lake Metallic, and Cactus Grey in the standard lightweight option.
Fezzari removed the extra external cable port on the fork and runs the cabling in a more sleek direction underneath the stem, through the head tube, and runs cabling through the steerer tube into the fork.
New build options including the brand new Sram Rival AXS wireless electronic drivetrain will be available. This build will come complete on the Empire with electronic shifting at $3199 with an option to upgrade to Zipp 303S carbon wheels for $4199.
The Empire Sport now starts at $1749 with its full carbon frame and with Shimano Tiagra. Other build options come with Shimano 105 at $2349, and Shimano Ultegra at $2799, and other builds up to $9k for those who want the very best.
