Show Description

Big travel and an aluminum frame join forces to create something magical: an affordable all-mountain bike that climbs as well as it descends. With frame geometry based on the SLAMR X8 LC, the X5 has all-mountain capability in a more wallet-friendly package. Slightly slacker geometry suits lines that demand composure and attention. 150mm of travel front and rear suits those looking to tackle ambitious lines. Hitting the sweet spot between fast-rolling pace and total flickability, the 27.5in. wheelset features 12 and 15mm thru-axles for flex-free, straight-as-an-arrow tracking. Outfitted with a mix of solid Shimano components: Deore brakes, a sexy XT Plus rear derailleur and SLX shifters for consistent performance.

  • Aluminum frame is lightweight and incredibly durable.
  • Tapered headtube shaves grams and improves stiffness.
  • Shimano pressfit BB aids power transfer without adding weight.
  • Fox Talas 34 fork features up to 150mm with a 130mm option.
  • Fox Float X rear shock with 150mm travel features 3 on-the-fly suspension positions.
  • Internal routing keeps cables protected and silky smooth.
  • Needle bearing system in the rear shock eye replaces commonly used bushings for minimum break-away torque for greater small-bump responsiveness.
  • KS Cruxi dropper post with 100mm of travel.
  • 27.5" Alex VOLAR wheelset with Deore hubs feature 12mm and 15mm thru axles.
  • Shimano SLX 10-speed shifters.
  • Shimano Deore double crankset is 36-22T.
  • Shimano Deore brakes.
  • Shimano XT Plus rear derailleur.
  • SDG Circuit saddle is low on weight and comfortable for long days of trail.
  • Bikes are covered by MEC's Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your bike to ay 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.
