You take your fitness journey seriously, and the last thing that you need is to feel restrained by the tools that take you there. That's why our Ariel Elite 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 respectably light and rugged A1 SL premium aluminum with a women's-specific geometry and touchpoints that are made to fit "just right" from the moment you get on the bike.
Add in a mix of performance-driven components from the likes of Shimano and microSHIFT, powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, and rack/fender mounts, and you have a bike that's perfectly equipped to help you hit your fitness goals with a smile that only the simple pleasure of riding can provide.
- Designed for women who want to mix adventure with fitness, the hard-working, sturdy A1 SL Premium Aluminum frame features our Women’s Fitness Geometry, so 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 NCX fork features 60mm 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 TRP Flow Set Control hydraulic disc brakes to ensure effective, consistent, and reliable power through any type of terrain or conditions.
