Nimble is as nimble does, and the S-Works Fate takes it to a whole new level. Light and lively as a cat on a hot tin roof, the Fate marries her playful attitude with groundbreaking performance that turns heads and leaves everyone eating her expertly delivered trail dust. As our lightest women’s hardtail, the S-Works Fate is a clear choice for pure efficiency and performance—whether racing XC or shredding local trails—and responds enthusiastically to your every whim. Equipped with the sport’s most cutting edge components, the S-Works Fate stands alone with an 80mm-travel RockShox RS-1 Brain fork, and the super-lightweight and World-Championship-winning carbon Roval Control SL wheelset. No doubt about it—Fate is calling your name.
