Product Details

2011 Specialized Ariel - Women's

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 easy-pedaling Shimano 21-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!

      Comments:

      I use it for fitness, riding 20-50 miles. The saddle is about as comfortable as they come and it is a nice smooth riding bike that handles climbs well. Sometimes when shifting gears, it catches and locks up the pedals for a moment or seems to sort of jump. But, for the price you can't beat this bike. Glad I bought it.

        I was using an old bike for 2 seasons after starting to ride bikes again. I received this bike as a gift and absolutely love it. I've taken it on paved bike paths, dirt roads and rustic mountain bike trails. No problems mechanically. The handle bar grips are not the most comfortable I have experienced, but can be changed out.

          I was looking for a bike to use on the road and dirt paths. I used to have a Gary Fisher mountain bike but now needed something lighter and more "road friendly." At the same time I wanted something "sportier" and more fun than a comfort bike. I'm so happy with my purchase. This bike fits all the requirements! Awesome!

          Comments:

          I didn't know what kind of riding I wanted to do, I just wanted a bike that would take me wherever I wanted to roll! Over the years, I never ventured far on my store-bought bikes because they were so hard to pedal. I bought my Ariel last year and have ridden many carefree miles on the road, local greenway, and multi-terrain bicycle paths, and it still rolls like a dream. It is unquestionably my favorite bike!
