Like the rest of the Lanao line, the Ghost Lanao 5 is designed by women for women. R&D Engineer Tina Kutschki put a new twist on the straight dropped top tube found on most women’s bikes. The curve makes the bike safer and easier to stand over, without compromising its strength or agility. Shimano® Deore and XT components deliver clean shifting, plenty of speed, and reliable velocity control. A handlebar-mounted thumb-switch allows on-the-fly control of the SR Suntour suspension’s speed-lock and rebound adjust. 650B wheels marry the smoothness of 29ers to the agility of 26ers, letting you flow effortlessly along forest paths and take bends at speed. Cross-country rides and rolling hills never felt so good.
- Female-specific 7000-series frame for an ergonomic fit, precise handling, and good weight distribution.
- SR Suntour suspension with remote speed lock and rebound adjust.
- Outfitted with Shimano Deore and XT components.
- Reverse hanger technology creates more direct shifting, mounting the hanger on the inside of the chain stay, reducing bending stress during shifting.
- Schwalbe Smart Sam tires provide excellent traction on nearly any surface.
- 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 meticulous attention to detail.
