Whisper it, the Saracen Ariel LT 2018 is the best bike that Saracen have ever built - it is ready to take on the biggest in the business and win. From the custom specification 24T/30T/3K Toray UD carbon mainframe, to the Toray swingarm with carbon linkage to the Kashima coated factory Fox Shox and ENVE (yes, that ENVE) carbon bar, the bikes simply oozes quality. Having gradually evolved the Ariel over the year, Saracen felt that it was time to teach the enduro set a thing or two about specifications and performance. Fitted with a 170mm Fox 36 Factory fork and matching Float X2 Factory EVOL rear shock, the 'boing' on the Areal LT is absolutely top drawer (there are bikes at twice this price with the same kit) and capable of delivering travel so smooth you'll have to check that you're not riding on tarmac (you're not, are you?). The industry leading spec does not stop there though - Shimano XT provides the stop and the go, with 1x11 gearing giving you a big enough range to winch to the top and twin 180mm rotors making sure you can control the Ariel LT on the way back down. Offering more assistance with that control is an 800mm ENVE composites bar (we've checked and we can't find anyone else doing that on a sub £5K bike) and oh-so-pretty Maxxis DHF custom tan wall tyres, you'll often find yourself fighting through the admiring crowds just to be able to ride this magnificent machine (not to mention the spare set of DHRs that you get for free - yeah, we were amazed too). Topped off with a smart 45mm stem, 150mm JD dropper post and DT Swiss M1900 Spline wheels, the Saracen LT is so well kitted out, you might think it was a custom build. But that's not all - because just take a look at it...Biketart are sure that you'll agree that, not only is it the best specced bike on the market, the Saracen Ariel LT 2018 is just about the best looking full suspension machine ever made. You know you want one.
