Show Description

Want to get into cross-country riding without breaking the bank? The Kato 3 combines a high quality 7005 aluminum frame, RST Blaze RLO Shock with 120mm of travel and Shimano components to deliver a bike nimble enough for singletrack lines and light enough for long climbs. The Kato runs a 27.5in. wheel to create a smooth ride like a 29er wheel, with the quicker response of a 26in. wheel. You end up with a soft, agile ride that handles whatever bumps and turns are down the trail.

  • 7000 series aluminum frame is strong and durable, while keeping the weight low and the cost reasonable.
  • RST Blaze RLO shock with 120mm of travel soaks up bumps and creates a smooth ride.
  • 27.5in. wheels give a smooth ride but stays nimble through the corners.
  • Reliable Shimano components deliver smooth shifting.
  • Hydraulic disc brakes.
  • Equipped with Ghost Flats pedals.
  • Bikes are covered by MEC’s Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your bike to any MEC Bike Shop for free adjustments and minor maintenance for a year after purchase.
  • Ghost Bikes are designed in Waldsassen, Germany. Every model reflects a deep passion for cycling and a meticulous attention to detail.
