If you’ve ever dreamed of being able to drop that uplift and still get just as many runs in, then the Ariel 50E is the bike for you. Maximise your on-bike time and enjoy the ups just as much as the downs, E-Bikes aren’t cheating, they just make sense.
Designed to take on the best that British mountain biking can offer, the Ariel 50E is built for everything from all-day epics to trail centre laps, nd anywhere else your imagination can take you.
The all-aluminium frame features 150mm travel provided by a capable Fox DPX2 Performance shock, while up front a 160mm Marzocchi Bomber Z1 handles the heaviest of hits.
Shimano's E7000 drive unit provides 250-watts of assistance, delivered with 60Nm of torque.
What this gives you, is an extremely flexible motor that has the power to propel you over the toughest terrain, while delivering impressive run times in conjunction with the integrated 504Wh battery.
Along with the preset modes you can also customise boost and trail settings within Shimano's E-tube app, allowing you to match the support you receive with the terrain and your riding style.
The drivetrain is provided with a mix of Shimano's capable Deore and SLX components, while braking is handled by two-piston Deore callipers matched to 203mm rotors for extra stopping power.
