Upgrades from Specialized Ariel Disc

Same as Specialized Ariel

The Ariel is Specialized's trail-capable commuter bike for women.

If you're looking for a women's bike that works well over the widest spectrum of conditions, with its suspension forks and 700x38 multi-purpose tyres, a Specialized Ariel is well worth considering.

This rugged-but-handsome hybrid comes highly recommended if you want one bike that is nifty in town but won't flinch if you point it in the direction of gravelly tracks.

This Specialized Ariel is built on a women's-specific diamond frame - i.e. its shorter top tube positions the handlebars within easier reach for the majority of women, compared with the equivalent unisex model, the Specialized Crosstrail.

  • The Specialized A1 Premium Aluminium women's-specific compact frame makes for a lightweight confidence-inspiring ride over any ridable terrain.
  • The frame and fork have mudguard and rack eyelets plus a kickstand mount. If you need anything fitted to the Specialized Ariel just ask when you order the bike and we will waive our standard fitting charge.
  • SunTour Nex suspension forks make the Specialized Ariel fit for entry-level mountain biking or everyday cobble-bashing.
  • The fork's 60mm travel can be locked out via a dial on the fork leg.
  • Proven reliable alloy V-brakes and Shimano Altus 3x8 Rapidfire gear shifting help ensure smooth, reliable performance.
  • Specialized Trigger Sport 700x38c tyres with reflective sidewalls for extra safety on double-wall alloy rims ensure sound performance on road and off.

'Specialized Ariel Disc
Safety and control—two things that can be top-of-mind when heading out to get your heart rate up. The Ariel Disc takes care of safety with powerful disc brakes, while control is provided through a women's-specific geometry and a custom suspension fork that'll have you tackling workouts on paved or dirt surfaces with equal confidence. Not stopping there, we also included light and tough A1 SL Premium aluminium frame tubing, workhorse components that are sized and designed specifically for women, and a wide range of gears that'll take the sting out of steep trails. It's everything you need to take your fitness wherever your heart decides, whether it's the road or the dirt around your house.

  • Designed for women who want to mix adventure with fitness, the hard-working, sturdy A1 Premium Aluminium frame features Women's Fitness Geometry—meaning you'll go fast with maximum efficiency, but without the discomfort of an aggressive ride position. The more comfortable you are, the longer you'll ride.
  • Enjoy greater control over varying terrain thanks to the custom, easy-adjust, Multi-Circuit Damping fork with 60mm of travel, tuned for lighter riders.
  • Braking duties are handled by Tektro Flow Set Control hydraulic disc brakes to ensure effective, consistent, and reliable power through any kind of terrain or condition.'
