On-road or off, Specialized's Ariel is built to excel. It eats up both dirt and pavement thanks to its great-handling A1 Premium aluminum frame, a bump-bustin' SR SunTour suspension fork and smooth-rolling 700c wheels. You'll also love the step-through frame, the easy-pedaling Shimano 24-speed drivetrain and the precise modulation and stopping power afforded by the linear-pull brakes. And to make your rides even smoother, the Ariel boasts a comfy women's-specific saddle!
To optimize fit, pedaling efficiency, comfort and control, Specialized tailors the geometry and components on their women’s bikes to feminine physiques. The frames are engineered with smaller-diameter tubes to decrease weight and increase compliance. Shorter top tubes provide a perfect fit and greater stand-over height on small frames allows for easy on/off. And, for a truly custom feel, Specialized includes small-diameter grips, narrow handlebars and women's saddles that make every ride more fun and comfortable than you could ever imagine.
