Go further. Our all-new Ariel-E is designed to take you there.
Enduro-approved, rally-ready and with a bit of a boost, this is a bike that’ll go up, down, across or wherever you want to point it.
Powered by Shimano's latest EP8 motor, you'll reach the top in no time and blast back down - whether it's bike park laps or a point-to-point epic, the all-new Ariel E is ready to take you there, with a massive grin on your face.
Housed inside a lightweight magnesium body, EP8 delivers 85NM of torque. But power is nothing without control and Shimano provide a huge range of user-customisation so you can get the best ride out on the trail.
Whether it's choosing between the amount of assistance on the fly using the handlebar mounted controls, or using the E-Tube app to fine-tune the balance between power and torque, Shimano's EP8 system is totally integrated and allows you to find the perfect combination every time.
Once your settings are dialled in and you hit the trails, you'll notice it's also a quieter experience, with an integrated 720Wh Darfon battery providing an even greater range for those epic rides.
A Fox Float X2 Performance shock sits inside our aluminium frame, delivering 150mm of travel and giving assured performance when the going gets rough.
Up front the E-Bike specific Fox 38-E Performance Elite fork features a lighter compression tune, which Fox have found suits the characteristics of E-Bikes better than a regular 38.
Of course, you'll get all the benefits of the regular 38 fork with the E-Bike version - including phenomenal stiffness, huge adjustment through low and high speed rebound and compression, and the all new bleed valves - making it a great enduro fork.
The drivetrain is provided with a mix of Shimano's capable Deore, SLX and XT components, while braking is handled by four-piston Magura MT5 eSTOP callipers for extra power.
DT Swiss H552 rims feature a 30mm internal perfectly supporting the Maxxis Minion DHRII tyres.
Our small and medium bikes come with mixed wheel size, while the large and extra large utilise the full 29er setup.
RaceFace components finish the build, matched to a KS Rage 150mm dropper post.
