The Ariel Sport will see you tackling workouts on either paved or dirt surfaces with equal confidence, and of course, you'll look good while doing it, too.
Its hard-working component package is paired with the ever-reliable A1 SL premium aluminum frame and powerful, no-nonsense hydraulic disc brakes. And with a Women's Fitness Geometry that's designed to keep you comfortable while you're burning up the miles, and features that are as versatile as they are efficient, you'll find yourself consistently needing to set new goals to achieve in your fitness quest.
- 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—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 Tektro HD-305/310 hydraulic disc brakes to ensure effective, consistent, and reliable power through any kind of terrain or condition.
