Safety and control—two things that can be top-of-mind when heading out to get your heart rate up. This Ariel with hydraulic disc brakes takes care of safety with incredible stopping power, 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 premium aluminum 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 Aluminum 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 Promax Solve hydraulic disc brakes that provide all of the hallmarks of hydraulic braking—consistent performance, easy engagement, and overall power.
