The refreshed for 2016 Saracen Ariel Pro is a lot of bike for not a lot of money.

Using the same frame is its more expensive sibling, the Ariel delivers 150 mm of travel via its Tuned Ride Link (TRL) design rear suspension which utilises high quality Norglide bushings and a 30 mm main pivot bearing to give smooth and reliable long term operation.

Absorbing everything that trail and rider can throw at this bike are Marzocchi suspension units front and rear; the acclaimed 350 fork provides 160 mm of buttery smooth travel at the front thanks to its espresso coat stanchions, and provides ample tuning potential with external rebound and compression damping dials. The rear shock goes even further, featuring both high and low speed compression damping, rebound damping and gate valve adjustments.

Drive is provided by the super tough Shimano Zee crankset and Gamut chain device, with shifting taken care of by the superb combination of Shimano 10 speed Deore shifter and SLX rear mech, providing the perfect combination of functionality and affordability. 

Brakes are Shimano M615 units clamping on to 180 mm Shimano alloy bodied rotors; world renowned for their stopping power, positive lever feel, reliability and ease of maintenance. 

The role of dropper post is filled by the simple but very effective KS drop zone post. The under saddle lever means no cable to get filled up with crud and stop working, and keeps the handlebar area refreshingly clear of excessive numbers of shifter/brake/dropper/lockout hoses and cables.

Wheels are made up of 27.5" WTB vigilante tyres on Kore XCD rims, running on sealed bearing hubs front and rear, the rest of the spec list is filled by good stuff from Kore, WTB, FSA, KS and Saracen.
