Saracen Ariel 161 2012 Mountain Bike

 
 
FeaturesReviewsDeliverySelect

Joining the 140mm Ariel is the new 160mm variant. Developed from the emergence of DH style Enduro racing, the Ariel 160 uses the TRL suspension platform. The 160 takes all its descending characteristics from its smaller brother, but it has been built with a slightly burlier rear triangle and slacker head angle to cope with everything thrown it’s way. The 160 allows the rider to push hard on the climbs yet destroy the descents. Superfast and accurate descending ability with the flexibility of a double chainset makes the Saracen Ariel 161 2012 Mountain Bike a versatile rig – great for your annual holiday in the Alps, your first Enduro event or simply pounding out the miles on your favourite trails.
