The Fate was the first carbon 29er engineered specifically for women and is the pinnacle of women's XC performance. We've grown the line of the best-fitting women's 29ers to include the value-packed Comp Carbon, making Fate more tempting than ever before.
FACT IS Carbon Women's Frame - FACT IS 8M (Comp and Expert) featuring women’s Performance XC 29er Geometry, custom carbon women’s layup and tubesets, tapered headtube with 1-1/2” lower bearing, OSBB, internal cable routing and 27.2mm seatpost - To provide female Performance XC riders with the best-fitting, stiffest, lightest, and most efficient frame.
Custom Suspension - A custom RockShox/Specialized SID 80mm-travel fork with Specialized’s Brain technology and a tapered 1-1/8” to 1-1/2” steerer tube. The small Fate has 51mm offset fork crown, while the medium and large frames have a standard 46mm crown offset - The small Fate’s 51mm fork offset maintains the bike’s Performance XC Geometry by allowing optimised reach, but avoids toe and front tyre clearance issues found on other small 29er frames.
Women's Components - Women’s Body Geometry Jett saddle, and size-specific grips, rotors and crank lengths - To ensure riders get the most comfort and best possible fit at every contact point on the bike.
