2014 Specialized Ariel - Women's

On the roads or paths, Specialized's Ariel is built for fun. It goes great on pavement and dirt thanks to its sweet-handling Specialized A1 Premium aluminum frame, bump-bustin' SR Suntour suspension fork and easy-rolling 700c wheels. You'll also love 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.

        Just got mine a month ago and it is an excellent bike. Tried it on the regular trail and backroads and it rides beautiful. A great bike for those that wants to mix it up a little bit, trail wise.

              This review is on the base model. This bike is very nice looking and performs flawlessly. It rolls forever on the tires, is steady off pavement, and is smooth riding everywhere. This is the perfect bike to ride on anything from smooth paved bike paths to packed gravel to gentle single track trails.

                  I love this bike! I had tried the Trek and Giant models in a similar price range and this was the most comfortable and easiest for me. I love the ease of the shifting and it's just a pretty bike too!

                    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 just bought this bike after trying a womens Terry bike last year that I just couldn't get comfortable with. This bike is fantastic for me. I feel extremely comfortable on it, the gears are so simple to use. I haven't ridden in years so I needed simple. The front shocks are awesome. I can't wait to take it for a ride next week through a large park near my home. I will equip it with a basket for shopping trips.

                        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!

                          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!
