The all-new Fate Expert Carbon 29 features women's performance XC 29er geometry and is equipped with an 80mm-travel RockShox SID Brain fork and Avid X0 World Cup brakes for premium cross-country performance.
  • All-new FACT IS 8m carbon frame 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
  • RockShox/Specialized SID 29 80mm-travel fork with Brain Fade and rebound adjust for smooth, lightweight performance
  • Custom Avid X0 World Cup hydraulic brakes with tool-less reach adjust plus alloy-backed, semi-metallic pads for sure-fire stopping and precise modulation
  • Custom SRAM alloy crankset plus X0 rear derailleur with XC-specific, 2x10 configuration (22x36) for lighter weight, better clearance, and more precise shifting
  • Light and strong Roval Control 29 wheels are a durable, quick-handling wheel that can handle any trail
  • Crazy-fast and light S-Works Renegade XC racing tires with low tread pattern for minimal rolling resistance and side knobs for hard cornering
