Ariel Elite Carbon

2018 Ariel Elite Carbon

The most important part of a fitness journey is that you're following a path, not what kind of terrain lies beneath your tyres. And it's precisely this philosophy that lies behind the Ariel Elite Carbon.

To make sure that you can mix things up between the road and dirt, it comes equipped with a suspension fork that houses 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 our ultra-lightweight FACT 9r carbon fibre with a women's-specific geometry that's 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, powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, and rack/fender mounts, and you'll be riding with confidence in no time—no matter where you choose to ride.
