Experience mountain biking in a whole new world of comfort with Specialized's Women's Ariel Comp Saddle. Its wide nose and padded tail give you a full range of motion to help you scale steep ups and descend gnarly downs. Plus, it boasts Specialized's Body Geometry ergonomics and foam padding to keep you pedaling comfortably all day. What's more, the Ariel comes with a tough, weather-resistant Micromatrix top and hollow-chromoly rails. And, it's available in three widths so you can find the perfect fit.
I'm an avid road cyclist and just got my first mountain bike (used). I bought the Ariel locally and ordered another women specific saddle to try both based on online reviews. The Ariel was so comfortable that I didn't even take the other saddle out of it's packaging. The Ariel is the most comfortable saddle I own bar none. I love that it comes in different sizes for your sit bones. Also, there is ballistic nylon on the sides of the widest point of the saddle. When you lean or lay your bike down there is no leather to scuff when another surface is touched. I did two back-to-back 30 mile rides when the saddle was new and felt great. A+++ Specialized!
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
