Show Description

Introducing the Kato 3’s bigger, better counterpart. Upgraded Shimano components and a beefier SR Suntour front suspension means you can finally head down the black diamond trail you’ve been eyeing all season. The 27.5in. wheels give the smooth ride of a 29er but have all the quick response of a 26in. wheel. The result is a soft, yet responsive ride regardless of the bumps and turns you encounter down the trail.

  • 7000 series aluminum frame is strong and durable, while keeping the weight low and the cost reasonable.
  • SR Suntour XCR AIR RLO front shock with 120mm of travel soaks up bumps and creates a smooth ride.
  • 27.5in. wheels give a smooth ride but are nimble through the corners.
  • Reliable Shimano XT and Deore and Deore SL 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.
