We are excited to see the new 2016 Saracen Ariel Elite and Pro arrive this week. Using the existing Ariel frames but equipped with new shocks and longer 160mm travel forks the Ariel is ready to go full Enduro or just razzing down your local trails.


The Elite comes fully loaded with Fox 36 FIT4 forks and the new Fox Float X EVOL. Shimano XT M8000 1x11 speed.


The Pro is equally as capable as the Pro with the reliable Marzocchi 350 forks and shock. 1x10 Zee/SLX transmission .

Why do we love the Ariel so much? Well we think it’s the best off the peg Trail/Enduro bike that you can buy for a number of reasons that all revolve around how it was designed and developed: With pride care and attention right here in the UK.

· Big 30 mm main pivot bearings and 15mm Norglide linkage bearings keep things running smooth, maximising durability and stiffness. The Norglides won’t corrode during wet UK winters and that big main pivot can take multiply seasons of use.

· A long reach and slack head angle makes for a stable ride along with short stays makes it easy to manoeuvre in the rough stuff.

· Shimano 1x transmissions keep things simple and the costs under control when you start wearing out chains and cassettes.

· Reliable Shimano brakes with 180mm rotors keep things under control.

· Dropper posts as standard along with 760 mm bars out of the box.
