Comfortable, efficient and powerful
The ultimate women’s cross country hardtail? We certainly think so. The Specialized Fate takes the latest in carbon technology and adds in a mix of the highest quality components available. A woman’s specific frame geometry ensures a comfortable and efficient ride on the most demanding of rides, whilst the stiff and lightweight carbon frame allows for explosive power out of every corner.
The excellent value Comp Carbon model is a fantastic staring point to the world of cross country mountain biking. A full FACT 8m carbon fibre frame with a tapered headtube and a PF30 bottom bracket increase stiffness whilst maintaining a low weight. Rockshox Reba RL forks feature lockout and compression adjustment to ensure supple performance and better traction over rough terrain whilst German engineered Magura MTS hydraulic discs slow things down, with powerful and reliable braking.
Our best selling model, the Expert Carbon features upgraded forks, wheels, brakes and drivechain components. Carbon fibre Sram cranks along with a Roval Control Carbon wheelset ensures that the bike flies along the toughest singletrack and up the steepest climbs with ease. A mixture of Shimano XTR and Sram X7 drivechain components ensures smooth shifting in wet and muddy conditions. The lighter, stiffer Rockshox SID fork features Specialized’s Brain function, which adapts and adjusts the compression to suit the terrain.
The full blown S-Works Fate Carbon features a lighter FACT 11m carbon frame, carbon steerer tube and carbon bars ensuring pin-point precise steering and handling. A Sram XX1 groupset lowers the weight even further, whilst a woman’s specific saddle with titanium hollow rails guarantees a smooth and comfortable ride.
