Product Details

Specialized Ariel Sport 2017

The Ariel Sport is upgraded with a microSHIFT R9/Shimano Alivio 2x9 drivetrain to create a smoother operating trail-capable commuter bike.

Upgrades over Specialized Ariel Disc

  • Smoother gear shifts in a simpler 2x9 format - less likely to require 'double shifting' than a 3x8 set up.
  • The 32/44 chainset and 11-36 cassette still offers a wide spread of gears for any rideable terrain.
  • The SunTour NEX 55mm-travel 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 rear hub is genuine Shimano - always a mark of extra quality and longevity.
  • Same as Specialized Ariel Disc

    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.

    • 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 Nex 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 Sport
    The Ariel Sport Disc will see you tackling workouts on paved or dirt surfaces with equal confidence, and you'll look good while doing it. Its hard-working component package is paired with the ever-reliable A1 aluminium frame, featuring the added peace-of-mind disc brakes provide. With a Women's Fitness Geometry designed to keep you comfortable while you're burning up the miles, and features that are as versatile as they are efficient, you'll find yourself consistently needing to set new goals to achieve in your fitness quest.

    • 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 NEX fork w/ Fitness Brain technology features 55mm of coil-sprung travel that takes the sting out of bumpy terrain, while our Fitness Brain technology promotes 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.'
