Product Description

Details

Specialized Ariel Elite 2017

With its wider range 2x10 drivetrain with 11-40 cassette, the Elite is the most capable climber in the Specialized Ariel alloy frame range.

Upgrades over the Specialized Ariel Sport

  • Smoother shifting microSHIFT R10 / Shimano SLX Shadow Plus 2x10 drivetrain.
  • The SunTour fork's Multi-Circuit damping and Brain technology ensure smoother riding in the rough and more efficient climbing on the smooth.
  • Brain technology 'senses' the terrain so the suspension is fully active over rough ground and cobbles, then it automatically firms up on smooth roads.
  • The Suntour NCX fork has a 12mm thru axle for a more solid interface with the front wheel.
  • The Specialized Flowset 3D forged stem is that bit more pukka.

Same as Specialized Ariel Sport
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.

Same as Specialized Ariel Disc

  • Tektro Flow Disc Brakes - why you want hydraulic disc brakes - blog.
  • 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 suspension forks make the Specialized Ariel fit for entry-level mountain biking or everyday cobble-bashing.
  • 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 Elite
You take your fitness journey seriously, and the last thing that you need is to feel restrained by the tools that get you there. That's why our Ariel Elite comes equipped with a suspension fork with our Fitness Brain technology for fast, efficient, and intuitive use over any surface. And to build on this blend of comfort and speed, the frame is built from respectably light and rugged A1 SL Premium aluminium with a women's-specific geometry and components that are made to fit just right from the minute you get on the bike. Add in a mix of performance driven components from the likes of Shimano and microSHIFT, powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, and rack/fender mounts, and you have a bike that's perfectly equipped to help you hit your fitness goals with a smile that only the trail can provide.
  • Designed for women who want to mix adventure with fitness, the hard-working, sturdy A1 SL Premium aluminium frame features our Women's Fitness Geometry—meaning that you'll go faster with maximum efficiency, only without the discomfort of an aggressive ride position. The more comfortable you are, the longer you'll ride.
  • An SR Suntour NCX fork w/ Fitness Brain technology features 60mm of coil-sprung travel that takes the sting out of bumpy terrain, while an integrated remote lockout is coupled with our Fitness Brain technology to promote more climbing and pedaling efficiency.
  • 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.'
