Saracen Ariel 50-E Elite

If you want to go further, do it properly. The Ariel 50E Elite is the Ferrari of E‐Bikes: Spec'd to the teeth and ready to roll wherever you want to go. First to the top, first back down. Forget the haters, the new Ariel E is probably going to be the most fun you'll ever have on a bike.

  • Powered by Shimano's latest EP8 motor, you'll reach the top in no time and blast back down ‐ whether it's bike park laps or a point‐to‐point epic, the all‐new Ariel E is ready to take you there, with a massive grin on your face.
  • Housed inside a lightweight magnesium body, EP8 delivers 85Nm of torque. But power is nothing without control and Shimano provide a huge range of user‐customisation so you can get the best ride out on the trail.
  • Whether it's choosing between the amount of assistance on the fly using the handlebar mounted controls, or using the E‐Tube app to fine‐tune the balance between power and torque, Shimano's EP8 system is totally integrated and allows you to find the perfect combination every time.
  • Once your settings are dialled in and you hit the trails, you'll notice it's also a quieter experience, with an integrated 720Wh Darfon battery providing an even greater range for those epic rides.
  • Our all‐new aluminium frameset delivers 150mm of travel and is matched to the downhill‐proven Fox Factory DHX coil shock for the ultimate in ground‐hugging traction and smooth riding over the roughest terrain.
  • Up front we have specified the Fox 38‐E Factory fork, which delivers 160mm of the smoothest, Kashima coated travel out there. This E‐Bike specific model features a lighter compression tune, which Fox have found suits the characteristics of E‐Bikes better than a regular 38.
  • Of course, you'll get all the benefits of the regular 38 fork with the E‐Bike version ‐ including phenomenal stiffness, huge adjustment through low and high speed rebound and compression, and the all new bleed valves ‐ all of which add up to make it the ultimate enduro fork.
  • We've completed the top‐of‐the‐line Ariel 50E Elite with Shimano's XT 12‐speed groupset and 4‐piston brakes, which is the benchmark for all‐round trail riding.
  • DT Swiss HX531 rims are another E‐Bike specific component, with a 30mm internal perfectly supporting the Maxxis Minion DHRII tyres.
  • Our small and medium bikes come with mixed wheel size, while the large and extra‐large utilise the full 29er setup.
  • RaceFace components finish the build, matched to a KS LEV Integra 150mm dropper post.
