    Product Details

    The Specialized Ariel Elite Disc 2016 is an all-purpose machine; suntour suspension forks, hydraulic disc brakes and Shimano Deore gears mean that this bike is at home on tarmac and trails.

    Read more.

    Season:
    2016

    Code:
     92215-40

    Brand:
      Specialized

    Weight : 20KG

    The Specialized Ariel Elite Disc 2016 is an all-purpose and all encompassing bike for cyclists who want to do everything from riding to work, to trips out with the family and even more adventerous off-road adventures. Large 700c wheels provide efficient riding performance and the 63mm travel Suntour forks help to absorb bumps and knocks so you can be stable and comfortable off-road. Finally Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and Deore gears provide a high performance finishing kit for top level performance no matter what terrain you're on.

    On-road/ commuting use

    There are a number of features that make this bike fast, and fun on the roads. From the large wheels to the lockout forks, this bike will be smooth, fast, comfortable and above all; easy to ride. Whether you're commuting, riding a short sportive or just heading out with the kids; the Ariel Elite will deliver.

    The Ariel Elite Disc 2016 is designed as a multi purpose bike; a bike for every adventure you have in mind. The spec list, geometry and overall design of the bike all provide benefits on different terrains and rides. To begin with, this bike has large '700c' wheels which means that you get more turning power per pedal stroke. This makes cycling much easier because you are able to cover more ground with each pedal stroke. 

    The lightweight Specialized Hi Lo wheels are combined with Specialized Trigger Sport tyres, which feature a semi-slick tread pattern. The relatively smooth centre of the tyre means that you reduce resistance against the road and improve your overall efficiency.

    The 63mm Suntour suspension fork also comes with hydraulic lockout, which means you can turn the suspension on and off depending on your terrain. Turning the suspension off when you're on-road will again make you more efficient as you won't be spending energy depressing the suspension.

    The 20speed Shimano Deore gearing not only provides a wide enough range of gears to allow you to conquer those lung busting climbs, but it is also smooth and reliable which means that even slow-speed gear changes will feel smooth and crisp.

    Off-road

    As well as performing well on tarmac, the Ariel Elite is designed for so much more. Whether you're planning on riding down pathways and tracks with your family or following your friends down your local wooded trails, this bike really will do it all. With 63mm suspension forks and hydraulic disc brakes, the Ariel Elite will eat up off-road adventures with ease.

    First it is important to note that the semi-slick tyres have an amount of knobbly tread on the edges. This means that when you're cornering off-road the bike will grip to the corner and you will find yourself navigating tight corners and bumpy tracks with great ease. The tyre size is 700x38c which means while the wheels are large and efficient, they are also wide for improved grip and control to provide you with a stable, confidence boosting, ride. 

    The 63mm suspension forks from Suntour will absorb most bumps and knocks that you will encounter on tracks, trails and cross country riding. This not only improves the comfort of the bike but also means that you will have more grip and control on the trails. 

    Hydraulic Shimano disc brakes are highly advantageous both on and off road. Not only from a safety perspective because they allow you to stop more quickly, but also that ability to stop quickly means you will be able to respond more quickly to changes in terrain and tight corners.

    The Shimano Deore gears provide a smooth, crisp gear change, with a 2x 10 set up you will have enough gears to get you up even the steepest hills. The smooth gear change is especially important off-road when you may find yourself changing gear very suddenly and at low speeds. The Deore gears are also very tough and long-lasting so [with proper maintenance] they will keep going mile after mile.

    Welcome to the Rutland Cycling size guide

    To work out the right bike frame size for you, all you need is: Your height & Your Inside Leg measurements. Then, use the size calculator to match your measurements to the recommended frame size.

    Remember, all sizing information is a guide only. If you have any questions about bike sizing, our expert team is here to help. Call us on 0330 555 0080, use our Live Chat, or email enquiries@rutlandcycling.com.

    Get started

    Step 1. Measure your height:

    With your shoes off, stand upright against a wall, with your shoulders back and legs together. Use a pencil to make a small mark on the wall above your head — make sure you hold the pencil parallel to the floor. Then measure from the floor to your mark, in centimetres or feet and inches.

    My height is

    Step 2. Measure your inside leg:

    With your shoes off, stand upright with your back against a wall. Place a book/ruler between your legs, level with your crotch. Then measure from the floor to the top of the book/ruler, in centimetres or feet and inches (it's easier if a friend helps).

    My inside leg is

    The Specialized Ariel Elite Disc 2016 is an all-purpose and all encompassing bike for cyclists who want to do everything from riding to work, to trips out with the family and even more adventerous off-road adventures. Large 700c wheels provide efficient riding performance and the 63mm travel Suntour forks help to absorb bumps and knocks so you can be stable and comfortable off-road. Finally Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and Deore gears provide a high performance finishing kit for top level performance no matter what terrain you're on.

    On-road/ commuting use

    There are a number of features that make this bike fast, and fun on the roads. From the large wheels to the lockout forks, this bike will be smooth, fast, comfortable and above all; easy to ride. Whether you're commuting, riding a short sportive or just heading out with the kids; the Ariel Elite will deliver.

    The Ariel Elite Disc 2016 is designed as a multi purpose bike; a bike for every adventure you have in mind. The spec list, geometry and overall design of the bike all provide benefits on different terrains and rides. To begin with, this bike has large '700c' wheels which means that you get more turning power per pedal stroke. This makes cycling much easier because you are able to cover more ground with each pedal stroke. 

    The lightweight Specialized Hi Lo wheels are combined with Specialized Trigger Sport tyres, which feature a semi-slick tread pattern. The relatively smooth centre of the tyre means that you reduce resistance against the road and improve your overall efficiency.

    The 63mm Suntour suspension fork also comes with hydraulic lockout, which means you can turn the suspension on and off depending on your terrain. Turning the suspension off when you're on-road will again make you more efficient as you won't be spending energy depressing the suspension.

    The 20speed Shimano Deore gearing not only provides a wide enough range of gears to allow you to conquer those lung busting climbs, but it is also smooth and reliable which means that even slow-speed gear changes will feel smooth and crisp.

    Off-road

    As well as performing well on tarmac, the Ariel Elite is designed for so much more. Whether you're planning on riding down pathways and tracks with your family or following your friends down your local wooded trails, this bike really will do it all. With 63mm suspension forks and hydraulic disc brakes, the Ariel Elite will eat up off-road adventures with ease.

    First it is important to note that the semi-slick tyres have an amount of knobbly tread on the edges. This means that when you're cornering off-road the bike will grip to the corner and you will find yourself navigating tight corners and bumpy tracks with great ease. The tyre size is 700x38c which means while the wheels are large and efficient, they are also wide for improved grip and control to provide you with a stable, confidence boosting, ride. 

    The 63mm suspension forks from Suntour will absorb most bumps and knocks that you will encounter on tracks, trails and cross country riding. This not only improves the comfort of the bike but also means that you will have more grip and control on the trails. 

    Hydraulic Shimano disc brakes are highly advantageous both on and off road. Not only from a safety perspective because they allow you to stop more quickly, but also that ability to stop quickly means you will be able to respond more quickly to changes in terrain and tight corners.

    The Shimano Deore gears provide a smooth, crisp gear change, with a 2x 10 set up you will have enough gears to get you up even the steepest hills. The smooth gear change is especially important off-road when you may find yourself changing gear very suddenly and at low speeds. The Deore gears are also very tough and long-lasting so [with proper maintenance] they will keep going mile after mile.
