Rethink where your bike can take you. With fast-rolling, agile 27.5in. wheels, 120mm of front travel and powerful hydraulic discs, the Kato readies you for gravel, trail and city adventure riding. The frame has shortened chainstays to make the ride feel responsive on singletrack or when hammering out of the saddle. Shimano Acera and Altus components provide consistent and accurate shifting. Tektro hydraulic discs provide steady braking power and satisfying modulation when the going gets wetter than expected. For commuting or urban riding, the mechanical front fork features a lock-out system to add efficiency.
