No corners have been cut to deliver the Ariel Elite. An affordable race ready Enduro bike from the get-go!

The Ariel Elite is a no-nonsense bike ready to rock! Using the same geometry as the Ariel LT, we paired our custom butted 6013 alloy front triangle with our Toray UD Carbon swingarm to create the perfect privateers race weapon. A mix of Shimano SLX and XT 11-speed drivetrain ensures you never skip a beat on the trail. 170mm Rockshox Yari fork together with a Fox Float DPX2 shock allow you to charge through the trail at whatever pace you choose. WTB Vigilante tyres and our own finishing kit complete this stellar build.
