Context is everything. The average additional 20mm of travel on LT (Long Travel) 29er wheels is equivalent to 40mm on a 26-inch ride. That’s some sweet math: the great rolling momentum of big wheels, plus extra travel over cross-country terrain. A remote adjustment lets you tune the suspension of the Fox Shocks front fork on the fly, while the Boost Valve technology on the rear shock provides give or firmness as needed. A responsive Climb/Trail/Descend (CTD) 3-position adjustment lever allows fast adjustment to changing terrain. Shimano XT components give you fast crisp shifts and keep the velocity in check. Everything rides on a lightweight aluminum frame that’s both burly and perfectly matched to the suspension and components.

  • Hydro-formed frame does not use standard tube sets, allowing Ghost to customize all elements and tune the bike precisely to their engineer's specifications.
  • 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.
  • Needle bearing system in the rear shock eye replaces commonly used bushings for minimum break-away torque (less force applied to activate the shock). Allows great small-bump responsiveness.
  • Four Bar Linkage prevents braking forces from affecting suspension performance, to guarantee maximum pedal efficiency and traction both up and down the hill.
  • Reverse hanger tech (hanger mounted inside the chainstay) offers more direct shifting and less bending stress during shifting.
  • Continuous cable housing so dirt and grit can't get in to affect shifting performance.
  • Shimano Pressfit BB system. Designed to increase stiffness and support and to reduce needed maintenance.
  • This model is not equipped with 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 meticulous attention to detail.
