PRIMERA TEAM VERDICT:
The Ariel is the most capable womens hybrid bike out there. The super light alloy and carbon frames available give a super smooth ride alongside the extensive range of suspension forks which help really dampen any vibrations. Whether it's being ridden down to the shops on a Saturday morning or taken to the New Forest tracks on a sunny Sunday lunch time, this bike is fit for every purpose.
The pannier rack and mudguard compatability make for an awesomely versatile bike, keeping you dry and loaded up with a picnic to head somewhere quiet for some lunch. We recommend the SKS mudguards or the Specialized own fenders alongside a Tortec pannier rack.
Take your fitness to new, adventurous levels with the Ariel, a bike that'll see you tackling workouts on paved or dirt paths with equal confidence and control.
It features a light and tough A1 Premium Aluminium frame that's been designed with our Women's Fitness Geometry with an ultra-low standover, so it will fit and feel like a dream right out of the box. Not stopping there, we also included a custom suspension fork that takes the sting out of bumpy terrain, a host of women's-specific components that increase comfort, fit, and hassle-free mechanical disc brakes that'll see you spending more time riding and less time bleeding your brakes.
Put it all together, and you have a purpose-built bike that's bent on giving you the perfect ride, whether it's on the dirt or on the road.
- Designed for women who want to mix adventure with fitness, the hard-working, sturdy A1 Premium Aluminium 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 pedalling efficiency.
- Mechanical disc brakes provide the stopping power and reliability you need without the hassle of bleeding them.
