Product Details

Specialized Ariel Sport 2019 Women's Hybrid Bike

This Specialized Ariel Sport with a smother, simpler microSHIFT R9/Shimano Alivio 2x9 drivetrain, Shimano hubs and Hydraulic disc brakes.

Specialized Ariel Overview - Key Features

When Specialized introduced their women's Ariel and unisex Crosstrail ranges of trail capable commuter bikes in 2008 they created a genre - much as Specialized have done throughout their history (think Specialized Stumpjumper mountain bike or Roubaix sportive road bike).

Every Ariel bike lives up to Specialized's original ambition - that is to create a trail-capable commuter bike.

  • To this end, every Ariel rolls on 700x38 tyres from one of the world's most respected bicycle tyre companies - Specialized
  • These tyres are faster than off-road knobblies and more forgiving than 23-28mm-wide road bike tyres
  • Pannier rack and mudguard compatibility make an Ariel perfect for commuting, touring and general riding
  • Free fitting - order mudguards or anything else with a new bike and we'll waive our usual fitting charge
  • The suspension fork offers shock absorption that helps make the bike suitable for light trail riding
  • Brain technology means the fork's 55mm travel is only active when required and is automatically locked out for rigid fork-like efficiency on smooth roads
  • Even the chain is specially selected for its anti-corrosion coating to help ensure minimum maintenance and maximum service life for its drivetrain.

The Evolution of the Specialized Ariel

As is the Specialized way, the Ariel concept has evolved and been refined, meaning models are better designed than ever with features borrowed from their finest four-figure road and and mountain bikes.

  • Its confidence-inspiring perfectly aligned Specialized A1 premium aluminium frame will be among the lightest at its price point
  • Internal gear cable routing makes for a cleaner finish that accentuates the frame's gorgeous paint job
  • The flat-disc brake mounts are much neater and lighter weight than first-generation disc brake frame bosses
  • The Specialized Ariel Sport comes with hydraulic disc brakes
  • Why you should consider a bike with hydraulic disc brakes

It's little wonder that Ariel bikes have been consistent best sellers since their introduction. If you are looking for a women's geometry bike that works well over the widest spectrum of conditions, a Specialized Ariel is well worth considering.
