Show Description

The ultimate Kato 29er, this competent, beautiful hardtail suits experienced trail riders who seek value and appreciate a few of the finer things. Bigger wheels help it roll over trail obstacles with ease, while boosting its overall stability. The result is a solid ride that efficiently crushes climbs and adds confidence on tricky sections. It gets a sweet sprinkling of Shimano SLX and XT components that are equal parts reliable and drool-worthy. 100mm of front travel courtesy of the RockShox fork takes the brunt out of gnarly trails, and can be locked out for efficient climbing and hammering.

  • Aluminum frame is lightweight, durable and cost-effective.
  • Shortened chainstays result in a responsive and nimble ride.
  • RockShox 30 Silver RL SA front fork with 100mm of travel can be locked-out.
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide solid stopping power and modulation in wet trail conditions.
  • Shimano SLX 11-speed shifters mated to SLX front and XT rear derailleurs provide pro-level shift performance.
  • Shimano SLX 2x11 crank and cassette for a trail ready gear range.
  • 29in. Alex rims laced to Shimano Deore hubs are smooth rolling, reliable and trail ready.
  • Michelin Country Race'R tires.
  • Ghost Bikes are designed in Waldsassen, Germany. Every model reflects a deep passion for cycling and meticulous attention to detail.
  • 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.
