Equally at home on steeper, faster more technical trails as it is railing berms at your favourite trail centre
The Ariel Elite is a no-nonsense bike, ready to rock the steepest, fastest trails. Up front sit’s a Rockshox Pike RC with 160mm travel which is perfectly balanced with the Fox Factory Float X air shock delivering 150mm rear travel. Good rubber comes as standard from WTB with their outstanding Dual DNA compound Vigilante and Riddler tyres that are TCS tubeless ready. A dedicated 1x11 drivetrain featuring the new Shimano SLX trail components matched with a Raceface AEffect direct mount chainset. Tubeless ready Kore Realm 2.4 rims and Raceface finishing kit round out this highly capable package.
