Ghost Riot 6 LC Bicycle - Unisex
The Riot 6 LC is the latest incarnation of Ghost's stellar all-trail weapon, tweaked based on rider feedback. Using high-grade carbon fibre, the Riot is stiffer and lighter. But don't mistake lost weight for lost strength – it features a layer of durable foil in the chainstays and downtube to keep the frame healthy. Compressed from both sides, the floating rear shock offers nuanced performance in the first 80% of travel, and a highly progressive end stroke in the final 20%. It results in smooth performance over fast moving terrain, and won't bottom out when going big. Ghost set it up with a Rock Shox Pike RC fork, offering 150mm of travel and with mega 35mm stanchions. The Pike handles flowy singletrack and gnarly lines smoothly. Equipped with one of the best gruppos around: it gets lightweight, reliable Shimano XT shifting and precise Deore braking. To make this bike a true all-trail winner, Ghost souped it up with a wider bar and an Integra dropper seatpost.
