This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After the success of the women’s specific Myka aluminum hardtail 29er, Specialized is now releasing the 2012 Carbon version, the Fate 29er. There will be 2 versions of the Fate, the Comp and the Expert. The comp comes with an 80mm-travel RockShox Reba RL fork and a SRAM X7 2×10 drivetrain with Custom Avid Elixir 5 SL hydraulic brakes. The Expert has an 80mm-travel RockShox SID Brain fork and Avid X0 World Cup brakes with an X0 rear derailleur with XC-specific, 2×10 configuration. It also comes with Roval Control 29 wheels and light S-Works Renegade XC racing tires. Both versions of the Fate have an 8m carbon frame which uses women’s Performance 29er geometry and carbon lay-up for a great fit and outstanding stiffness-to-weight for ultra-quick performance; with tapered head tube and internal cable routing. The first bikes will be available in the fall and will cost between $3000 – $4000.
