Specialized's S-Works Fate Carbon 29 is a no-compromise ride for female athletes. This full carbon hardtail 29er is an unfair advantage on everything from race courses to local rides. The women's geometry with a lower, longer, go-fast position shapes the sub-1,200 gram frame. The fit has plenty of standover, and combines Specialized's awesome 29er traits for nimble handling and snappy accelerations. Nothing on this bike is too good: you've got a full XTR group so shifting is telepathic and braking is controlled and confident. You'll also love how the Fate's specially-tuned SID suspension fork, super-light carbon wheels and carbon bar and seatpost maintain momentum to let you float over bumpy terrain with ease.
To optimize fit, pedaling efficiency, comfort and control, Specialized tailors the geometry and components on their women’s bikes to feminine physiques. The frames are engineered with smaller-diameter tubes to decrease weight and increase compliance. Shorter top tubes provide a perfect fit and greater stand-over height on small frames allows for easy on/off. And, for a truly custom feel, Specialized includes small-diameter grips, narrow handlebars and women's saddles that make every ride more fun and comfortable than you could ever imagine.
This frame utilizes Specialized’s advanced FACT IS (Integrated Structure) construction method. By separating the frame into four main parts — the front triangle, seat tube/bottom bracket, chainstays and seatstays — Specialized is able to optimize each carbon piece for its specific purpose and create a structure that’s incredibly light, impeccably stiff and impressively strong.
