For casual female riders looking for a versatile bike that can
do a little bit of everything, the Ariel is the all-access pass
to pavement, dirt, and everything in between. Inspired by fun
and fitness, the Ariel is an efficient, yet capable bike
for anything from the weekday commute to a weekend spent
exploring local greenway trails.
WHAT All-new fully butted A1 Premium Aluminum Ariel frame featuring women’s recreational geometry, smooth welds, and full fender/rack compatibility. New XS size now available.
WHY To create the lightest weight, most versatile, and best fitting all-road bike for women
HOW Our engineers optimize the frame’s tube shapes and diameters specifically for women to maximize compliance, handling, and fit. Since we design each frame from the ground up, we created a smaller size offering this year (XS) and improved the standover and geometry on current sizes to make the Ariel accessible to the widest range of riders.
WHAT New and improved 75mm-travel adjustable forks with lockout (select models).
WHY Better control and off-road handling for a more predictable and comfortable ride.
HOW The fork is stiffer with improved top-out, which reduces harsh rebounds and creates a buttery smooth ride. With a lockout, riders gain more efficiency on surface streets.
WHAT BG Women’s Riva Mountain saddle, BG Women’s Contour grips, size-specific crank lengths and handlebar widths.
WHY To ensure that female riders get the most comfort and best fit out of every contact point.
HOW Through pressure mapping studies with Dr. Roger Minkow, we optimize the foam densities and cutaways in our saddles to relieve soft tissue discomfort, and our grips are designed with varying thickness to anatomically contour the hands. Crank lengths and handlebar widths are chosen based on female rider sizes, with each frame size and model spec’d individually.
