As the only true, women's-specific hybrid bike available, the new Ariel is your all-access pass to road and mountain riding. Its lightweight and versatile women's frame, MTB-adapted geometry, riser bar and mountain-capable fork create the perfect riding position for combined stability and agility across both pavement and dirt.
  • The Ariel’s A1 Premium Aluminum frame has rack and fender braze-ons so you have options for carrying gear, forged dropouts add extra strength.
  • The 75mm-travel suspension fork uses coil springs for smooth action and alloy lowers for light weight.
  • The 8-speed compatible Shimano Altus rear derailleur lends reliably crisp, precise shifts.
  • A triple-chainring crankset gives you the gears you need to tackle any climb or descent.
  • The high-volume Borough XC Sport 700x45c tire rolls fast, its shoulder knobs let you corner with confidence.
