NOW GETTING TO THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN IS JUST AS FUN AS RACING TO THE BOTTOM?

The Ariel E is built around a Series 3 custom butted and hydroformed 6013 alloy front triangle paired with a carbon swingarm and linkages which help to keep the weight down while taking nothing out of the ride. And crucially, the pivot points and geometry are close enough to the existing Ariel that you'll think you're riding the same bike, and you won't feel like you're trying to guide a barge down a twisty trail. Drive system comes courtesy of Shimano, in the shape of the E8000 STEPS motor. STEPS is the best drive units on the market, and its three power modes "Eco, Trail and Boost" give you power when you need it, but preserve battery life when you don't.
