Ghost Kato 1 27.5" Bicycle - Unisex


See available mountain bikes


The fast-rolling speed of 29er bikes meets the nimble ride of 26 setups in this fast, accessible and fun 27.5 cross-country ride. Slotted right between the big-wheel speed of 29-inch wheels and the responsiveness of 26-inch, 27.5 bikes are considered the best of both worlds and a just-right option. To keep it lightweight and solid, it gets an aluminum frame for responsiveness that holds up over the long haul. Looking to mountain goat steep climbs and power down bike lanes? No problem. A triple crank combined with an 8-speed cassette offers a versatile gear range for different terrain types. When it comes to stopping power, hydraulic disc-brakes promise solid braking performance when joy-riding through muddy terrain or embarking on city-wide adventures.
