As the only true women's-specific hybrid bike on the market, our Ariel is your all-access pass to road and mountain riding. For women who want one stable and lightweight bike to cover all bases, the Ariel's ultra low standover height, 700c tires and MTB drivetrain make it light and nimble on the road, but strong and capable on the trail.
  • 75mm-travel coil-sprung fork with alloy lowers allows this hybrid to go off-road with ease
  • High-volume Specialized Borough XC Sport 700c tires roll fast, yet have enough bite for the trail
  • Popular Body Geometry XC women's saddle with front and rear bumpers for on and off-road durability
  • Women's-specific A1 Premium Aluminum frame with low standover for lightweight confidence on both dirt and pavement
