New Saracen Ariel LT 2018 Full Suspension Bike

Saracen (UK) – "Whether doing big mountain epics or turning laps at your local, the Ariel takes it all in its stride and still asks for more", stated Saracen.

Using a 24T/40T/3K Toray UD Carbon blend on the front triangle and a Toray UD Carbon swingarm keeps weight low whilst not compromising on durability. "As seen on the Myst, the custom headtube allows the adjustment of the front centre +/-5mm in order to perfect the ride position. Internal cable routing and a specific Di2 battery holder in the downtube keep the bike looking as fresh as possible whilst still being practical", they added.

"Full Shimano 1 x 11 speed groupset with M8000 XT brakes taking care of stopping duties. DT Swiss M1900 wheelset wrapped in Maxxis Minion DHF II tyres and finished off with carbon Enve bars really help this big hitter stand out from the crowd", they concluded.
