Some feel the freedom with the wind against their faces and hair, exposed to the climate and weather but in the convenience of four wheels. Ariel Nomad is crafted perfectly for these individuals. Not for the sophisticated speedsters who are aficionados of the comfortable confines and modern technology of the sports car, but of the rugged adventurers who crave for the basic elements of life.
Ariel Nomad rocks the earth and dirt like a rally raider. You can literally see flying rocks, soil and twigs as it passed by in its 235 horse power. Exposing the rugged handsomeness to the mud may mean a little bit of workout and you have to keep rolling the wheels in sandy terrain. Good thing that the flat underside works just as great in bumpy surfaces.
While some interested folks do like to know if Nomad can actually race, then just gauge its performance in extreme terrain and we’ll leave the answer to your imagination.
Definitely not the conventional type with huge welded steel tubing. Up front, the driver can be shielded albeit scarcely by the full wind-shield, something that sets the contrast to Nomad’s popular sibling, Atom that uses aero screen.
The seat is set 12inches off the ground and is accompanied with outboard mountings for dampers at each corner. Getting in to Nomad compares to a challenging welcome since it requires that you must dexterously register yourself through the gaps of the frame.
