    Ariel Mechanical Disc

    Icon

    2018 Ariel Mechanical Disc

    Take your fitness to new, adventurous levels with the Ariel, a bike that'll see you tackling workouts on paved or dirt paths with equal confidence and control.

    It features a light and tough A1 Premium Aluminum frame that's been designed with our Women's Fitness Geometry with an ultra-low standover, so it will fit and feel like a dream right out of the box. Not stopping there, we also included a custom suspension fork that takes the sting out of bumpy terrain, a host of women's-specific components that increase comfort, fit, and hassle-free mechanical disc brakes that'll see you spending more time riding and less time bleeding your brakes.

    Put it all together, and you have a purpose-built bike that's bent on giving you the perfect ride, whether it's on the dirt or on the road.
