2018 Specialized Ariel Elite Carbon
The most important part of a fitness journey is that you're following a path, not what kind of terrain lies beneath your tires. And it's precisely this philosophy that lies behind the Ariel Elite Carbon.
To make sure that you can mix things up between the road and dirt, it comes equipped with a suspension fork that houses our Fitness BRAIN technology for fast, efficient, and intuitive use over any surface. And to build on this blend of comfort and speed, the frame is built from our ultra-lightweight FACT 9r carbon fibre with a women's-specific geometry that's made to fit just right from the minute you get on the bike.
Add in a mix of performance driven components from the likes of Shimano, powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, and rack/fender mounts, and you'll be riding with confidence in no time-no matter where you choose to ride.
- Working with our Body Geometry team, we designed a frame that strikes the optimal balance between comfort and efficiency. The FACT 9r carbon fibre keeps the bike ultra-light and efficient, while the rack, fender, and disc mounts give you an incredibly versatile package.
- An SR Suntour NCX fork w/ Fitness BRAIN technology features 60mm of coil-sprung travel that takes the sting out of bumpy terrain, while an integrated remote lockout is coupled with our Fitness BRAIN technology to promote more climbing and pedalling efficiency.
- Braking duties are handled by TRP Flow Set Control hydraulic disc brakes to ensure effective, consistent, and reliable power through any type of terrain or conditions.
