Show Description

When it comes to flat-out pace, 29er wheels can't be beat. Lightweight with fast-rolling hoops, this capable XC ride sets you up for excitement. Big wheels can roll over obstacles, making the Kato 29 a specialist in covering flowy, rooty trails at speed. A light, solid aluminum frame promises responsiveness over the long haul. Looking to mountain-goat up steep climbs and power down bike lanes? No problem. A triple crank combined with an 8-speed cassette provides a versatile gear range for different types of terrain. 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.

  • Aluminum frame is lightweight, durable and cost-effective.
  • Shortened chainstays result in a responsive and nimble ride.
  • Mechanical fork with 100mm of travel can be locked out for added rigidity.
  • Shimano shifters and derailleurs provide reliable shifting.
  • 8-speed cassette and 3-ring crank offer a versatile gear range.
  • Tektro hydraulic disc brakes provide solid stopping power in all weather conditions.
  • 29-inch wheels roll over obstacles and rough terrain with ease.
  • Alex rims laced to Ghost hubs are smooth-rolling and trail-ready.
  • Kenda tires provide the right balance between grip and low rolling resistance.
  • 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.
