The Ariel LT reflects the Downhill Myst in terms of exquisite frame materials and suspension technology, but with condensed geometries for less precarious applications, thus a more versatile monster of an enduro bike is born. 

The Ariel LT is the highest spec. Ariel in the 2018 range offering a unidirecitonal 3-Carbon blended frame for lightnesss, stiffness, durability and vibration management. It's repping premium quality Fox Factory Kashima suspension, full Shimano XT 11-Speed groupset, DT Swiss M1900 Complete Boost wheels, reckless Minion DHF tyres for unyielding control, and a long travel stealth dropper post for excellent body clearance when you need to point it down or get airbourne. ENVE Carbon bars finish up the cockpit for increased comfort through good vibration management and forgiving levels of microflex. 

The unique linkage system manages small rapid bumps and big slugging hits equally well - the suspension has tons of adjustment and the rear triangle progresses seamlessly through the travel for a plush, bottomless sensation. 

This is an enduro bike that will be happy to sit at any start line and strike terror into your opponents' setups. Equally, exhilaration can be found by simply blasting it around your local trail centre or bike park. Try and find something it can't do!
