On the roads or paths, Specialized's Ariel is built for fun. It's ready to roll on pavement and dirt thanks to its sweet-handling Specialized A1 Premium aluminum frame, bump-bustin' SR Suntour suspension fork and easy-rolling, road bike size wheels. You'll also love the step-through frame, the hill-flattening Shimano 24-speed drivetrain and the powerful linear-pull brakes. Plus, for even more comfort there's a plush women's seat.
To optimize the fit, pedaling efficiency, comfort and control, Specialized tailors the geometry and components on their women’s bicycles just for you. The frames are engineered with smaller-diameter tubes to decrease weight and increase compliance. They have shorter top tubes for a perfect fit and greater stand-over height on smaller sizes for easy on/off. Plus, for a truly custom feel, Specialized includes small-diameter grips, narrow handlebars and women's seats that make every ride totally fun and comfortable.
