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.
  • Specialized Borough XC Sport 700c tires roll fast, yet have enough bite for the trail
  • 75mm-travel coil-sprung fork with alloy lowers allows this hybrid to go off-road with ease
  • Women's A1 Premium Aluminum frame with low standover for lightweight confidence on both dirt and pavement
  • Triple-chainring crankset gives you all the gears you need for varied terrain, with a Shimano Altus rear derailleur for reliable shifting
