Specialized Ariel Disc 2016
Brought to you by The Bike Shop
Safety and control—two things that can be top of mind when heading out to get your heart rate up. The Ariel Disc takes care of safety with powerful disc brakes, while control is provided through a geometry and frame/fork combination that'll have you tackling workouts on paved or dirt surfaces with equal confidence. With a Women's Fitness Geometry 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 Premium Aluminum frame features Women’s Fitness Geometry—meaning you’ll go fast with maximum efficiency, but without the discomfort of an aggressive ride position. The more comfortable you are, the longer you’ll ride.
Enjoy greater control over varying terrain thanks to the custom, easy-adjust, Multi-Circuit Damping fork with 63mm of travel, tuned for lighter riders.
Tektro Mechanical Disc brakes provide powerful stopping power in all conditions, while also reducing hand fatigue while braking.
