Designed specifically for women.
Urban Explorer redefined.
You take your fitness journey seriously, and the last thing that you need is to feel restrained by the tools that take you there. That's why our Ariel line comes equipped with suspension forks for fast, efficient, and intuitive use over any surface, a lightweight aluminum frame, and trust-worthy, performance-driven components. This Ariel comes spec'd with all the essentials to get out and get active. A 9-speed drivetrain handles shifting duties while powerful hydraulic disc brakes ensure effective, consistent braking. Last, but certainly not least, a SR Suntour NEX fork with 65mm of travel takes the sting out of pesky bumps and potholes.
- Designed for women who want to mix adventure with fitness, the hard-working, sturdy A1 SL Premium Aluminum frame features our Women’s Fitness Geometry, so 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 pedaling efficiency.
