From rails to trails to pristine bike lanes, Specialized's Ariel Sport takes you further and faster so you'll enjoy all your favorite rides even more. It eats up pavement and dirt thanks to its great-handling Specialized A1 SL Premium aluminum frame, a bump-bustin' SR Suntour suspension fork, and smooth-rolling, 700c wheels. You'll also love the easy-pedaling 27-speed Shimano/microSHIFT drivetrain and the excellent stopping power of the Tektro hydraulic-disc brakes. And to make your rides even nicer, the Ariel boasts a comfy Aldia Sport saddle.

After 20 years away from cycling, I bought this bike about 6 weeks ago. What a dream the Ariel has been. I wanted something that would take on the dirt and sandy trails as well as paved roads and paths. I may be middle aged but I'm no shrinking violet. The bike has surpassed my expectations. Smoth shifting, sturdy frame and beefy suspencion. I have no complaints about the brakes, but I think the one improvement I might suggest would be to add disc brakes. What a fabulous product. I look forward to many years of enjoyment.
