Ghost AMR 8 LC Bicycle - Unisex


See available mountain bikes


Blending all-mountain confidence, long haul comfort and the pace of a 29er, the AMR 8 is as versatile as a trail bike gets. Two time-proven materials: carbon fibre frame with an aluminum rear triangle adds up to bombproof durability and lightweight performance. On long climbs or fast singletrack, the slightly extended top tube accommodates a powerful riding position. Drop into descents and the AMR's technical side comes alive: the dropper post allows you to get low, while a generous amount of front and rear travel handles the rigours of hard trail riding. The benefits of 29er setups are hard to refute, especially when combined with a responsive wheelset. Tubeless ready Raceface Æffect with 15/12mm thru-axles, cartridge bearings and straight-laced spokes pack a ton of technology into a lightweight, über stiff package. Shimano XT componentry ensures rock-solid shifting, stellar braking performance and multi-generational durability (provided you treat them as well as they treat you, of course).

  • Carbon frame with aluminum rear triangle combine the buzz-reducing benefits of carbon with the bombproof durability of aluminum
  • Tapered head tube means a wider bottom bearing than top. The result is a light, responsive, stiff ride under power
  • Internally routed cables provide consistent shifting performance, and won't get caught on branches or other high-velocity obstacles
  • Pressfit bottom bracket reduces q-factor and weight while increasing stiffness under power
  • Fox Float front (130mm) and rear (120mm) suspension offer 3 quick-adjusting positions (climb/trail/descend) for on-point suspension performance no matter the terrain
  • Race Face Æffect thru-axle wheelset is lightweight, ridiculously stiff and up for the rigours of hard trail riding
  • KS LEV Integra 100mm dropper post allows powerful ascending and on-point descending at the literal flip of a switch
  • Shimano XT 11-speed shifters offer superb performance in a lightweight, durable package
  • Shimano XT brakes are professional-proven performers. Massive 180mm discs make them even better
  • Shimano XT Plus rear derailleur eliminates noisy chain slap when riding hard
  • Schwable tires are high-volume, fast-rolling and prepped for all-mountain riding
  • Ghost Needle Bearing System ensures super sensitive rear triangle performance and minimum break-away torque
  • Reversed derailleur hanger provides more immediate shifts, and is less likely to tweak or bend in the case of a crash
  • 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
