Specialized Ariel

The Specialized Ariel is a bike that has pricing on its side. As its hybrid capabilities are suited to urban dwellers, it gives you a much more fluid, fast and sporty experience than you might reasonably expect from some of its cheaper rivals. A suspension-packed front fork, Shimano gears and a well made alloy frame give you a great basis to have two-wheeled fun every day of the week.

The bike can be augmented with a rack or fender depending on your preferences and this will help to make it even more useful, whether it is helping you on the daily commute or giving you the perfect way to get goods home from the shops. The SR Suntour fork provides 75mm of travel to absorb any bumps that can litter well-worn roads and the poised frame geometry means you can pick up speed without compromising on handling or ride quality.
