Specialized Ariel Sport Disc

Whether you want a bike for sporty fun or a hard working commuter machine, these Specialized Ariel Sport Disc hybrid bikes will provide you with both styles in a single package. It is affordable when you consider the wealth of capabilities that it boasts and you will be able to get years of use out of it due to its strong, light alloy frame and sturdy set up.

With Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano gears and an SR Suntour fork, this is a bike that has credentials that will match up to dedicated mountain bikes. Of course, this is better suited to riding in an urban environment because of the ease with which you can add a rack or mudguards as extras. Its dashing red and white paint job will help you to stand out from the commuter crowd.
