The ARIEL is a true hybrid. With a geometry inspired by fun and fitness, including a low standover height, multiple lightweight frame options, and mountain capable fork, it’s your all-access pass to pavement, dirt, and everything in between. With fender and rack mounts, the versatile Ariel turns from local trail explorer to fast-rolling, commuting machine in the blink of an eye.
WHAT Fully butted M4 or A1 Premium Aluminum frames featuring women’s Fitness geometry, smooth welds, and full fender/rack compatibility. Extra Small and step-through models available.
WHY To create the lightest weight, most versatile, and best fitting all-road bike
HOW Our engineers optimize the frame’s tube shapes and diameters specifically for women to maximize compliance, handling, and fit. With each frame designed from the ground up, we created a smaller size (XS) and step-through model while improving standover and geometry on all other sizes to make the Ariel accessible to the widest range of riders.
WOMEN'S-TUNED SUSPENSION FORK
WHAT Fully functioning, damped, 63/50mm-travel adjustable forks with size-specific spring weights, lockout (select models) and custom crown.
WHY Better control and off-road handling for a more predictable and comfortable ride.
HOW The fork travel is based on frame size and tuned for the average weight range of that ride. Combine with improved top-out, which reduces harsh rebounds, this creates a buttery-smooth ride and full travel range for every rider. With a lockout, riders gain more efficiency on surface streets or gentle trails.
WHAT BG Women’s Riva saddle, BG Women’s Contour grips, size-specific crank lengths and handlebar widths.
WHY To ensure that female riders get the most comfort and best fit from every contact point.
HOW Through pressure mapping studies with Dr. Roger Minkow, we optimize the foam densities and cutaways in our saddles to relieve soft tissue discomfort, and our grips are designed with varying thickness to anatomically contour to the hands. Crank lengths and handlebar widths are chosen based on female rider sizes, with each frame size and model spec’d individually.
FENDER, RACK, KICKSTAND
WHAT All frame options feature fully integrated fender, rack, and kickstand mounts.
WHY To ensure maximum versatility
with minimal effort.
HOW Mounting braze-ons are integrated into the frames in easy-to-reach locations. Rider can choose which and how many accessories to mount according to her needs. And with the easy accessibility these can quickly be added/removed depending on the ride of the day.
