For aspiring off-road riders, the Kato line is cost-effective, but in no way cheap. Ghost designed the Kato FS 7 Bike to be affordable, but decked out with features borrowed from its top-of-the-line models. Their famous 4-bar frame linkage lets you brake hard without compromising the performance of suspension system. Fox shocks, with a Climb/Trail/Descend (CTD) 3-position lever allow for fast adjustment to changing terrain and keep you focused on flow. High-end Shimano drivetrain components include an XT Plus rear derailleur with a one-way ratcheting cam that keeps it from bouncing as you ride rough and technical terrain. It's grounded with 650B wheels hit the sweet spot between a 29 and 26-inch rig, and provide fast, smooth riding with agility for mountain touring.

  • 7000 series aluminum frame is strong and durable, while keeping the weight low and the cost reasonable
  • Tapered head tube is wider at the bottom for better force transfer from the fork to the frame. The increased stiffness offers direct, reactive steering
  • Shimano XT components deliver speed and control, with near instant shifts and the precise stopping power of 180mm disc brakes
  • Needle bearing system in the rear shock eye replace commonly used bushings for minimum break-away torque (less force applied to activate the shock). Allows great small-bump responsiveness
  • Reverse hanger technology creates more direct shifting, mounting the hanger on the inside of the chain stay, reducing bending stress during shifting
  • 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
