Ghost Roket 5 Bicycle - Unisex


See available mountain bikes


Not a race machine, and not your typical hardtail either. The Roket feels smooth like a full-suspension ride, but has the simplicity of a hardtail. How is this possible you ask? It’s the “+” in 27.5+ design. The wheels have a large contact surface to give the Roket fat-bike-esque grip with MTB low-rolling resistance. Tune the volume to launch this rocket down rooty trails and ride rough surfaces anywhere on the globe. For epic alpine rides, a 2x11 Shimano SLX drivetrain gives you the gears to grind your way to the top, and the top-end speed to shred down. If you bite off more than you can chew, 4-pistons Tektro disc brakes and massive rotors will bring the speed back to manageable.
