There’s nothing like the unbridled spirit of the lightweight Fate to put a smile on your face, particularly as you haul uphill and leave all competitors gasping in your dusty wake. Dirt is this bike’s playground, and the definition of play in this case ranges from lining up at an XC race, to putting in some quality miles on local trails with your speed-obsessed friends. The Fate is all about efficient performance, expert control, and a whole lot of speed, and as our lightest women’s hardtail you’ll respond to this bike like it responds to the dirt—with snappy ‘go get it’ enthusiasm.
