Saracen Ariel 30 Pro

If double-down country was a thing, this would be the bike.

Well it is a thing, so embrace it, you're going to love it. The Ariel 30 rallies up, down and everywhere in between.

From the local loam, to trail centres and natural stuff that a bike with this little travel should have no right being interested in, this is the one that can do it all.

At the heart of it is our all-new, custom-butted and hydroformed 6013 aluminium frame.

Designed and developed with the help of Matt Walker from our Madison Saracen Factory Racing Team, you know it's been put through the wringer and is built to last and go fast.

Every Ariel 30 features size specific wheels, with small and medium bikes in the 29/27.5 mullet setup, and the large and extra-large sizes 29er models.

But what if you change your mind faster than the bike industry about which wheel size is best?

We thought of that already. Whichever Ariel 30 you choose, we've included additional push links, that you can swap out and see if the grass really is greener. All you'll need is the right size rear wheel.

Our Pro model is our top-of-the-line, cutting weight and adding performance across every key component, to deliver the best possible performance out on the trails.

The 130mm of travel is provided by a Fox Float X Performance air shock featuring two position settings, with the matching 34 fork giving low and high speed compression and rebound adjustment.

Shimano's latest SLX shifting gives a huge 10-51 range for winching up the steepest slopes, each gear crisply accessed with an XT rear mech. Stopping is handled by Magura MTS four-piston brakes, matched to 180mm rotors for added control.

DT Swiss XM421 rims feature a 25mm internal and are laced to smooth spinning Shimano SLX hubs. Maxxis Minion DHRII tyres are spec'd as standard and along with the rims are tubeless ready - just add tape, valves and sealant.

Finishing kit is taken care of by RaceFace, with an up to date 35mm diameter bar and stem, with the KS Rage dropper completing the package.

When it comes to the details, there is internal routing for everything - including a dropper post - room for a 550ml bottle, superboost spacing for additional clearance, and big bearings which last longer and are commonly available should you need to refresh them.

Embrace it, love it!

The Ariel 30 rallies up, down and everywhere in between - this bike can do it all.

Hydroformed aluminium frame at the heart

This custom-butted and hydroformed 6013 aluminium frame is a riders’ delight.

Impressive Fox Float X Performance air shock

These two position settings, coupled with low and high speed compression and rebound adjustment are a dream.

Press Review

Shortlisted for Bike of the Year

A great bike for all-day adventures and picking your way down steep tech. If you like ‘long’ geometry, you’ll love the Ariel 30; pedalling efficiency and snappiness is great between corners; well-thought-out kit provides great value for money. - BikeRadar
