From rails to trails to pristine bike lanes, Specialized's Ariel Sport Step Through 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.
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.
