Show Description

Fly through city streets during the week, cruise gravel roads on the weekend. With a solid aluminum frame and fast yet stable wheels, the Square Cross lets you do a bit of everything. Its cushy front shock keeps the ride comfortable over pot-holed pavement or adventurous trails. When it comes time to pick up the pace, you'll love the swiftness of 700C wheels on a lightweight frame. Few things are worse than clunky shifting and ineffective brakes. That's why Ghost opted for a solid assortment of Shimano and Tektro components for reliable, confident performance. Built for versatility and a healthy dose of fun, this nicely equipped ride sets you up right for the two-wheeled life.

  • Aluminum frame combines hydroformed and standard tubes to boost comfort and stiffness while keeping the cost reasonable.
  • Tapered head tube is wider at the bottom for responsive performance.
  • Front fork with 50mm of travel smooths out rough roads and gravel trails.
  • Large 700C knobby tires are stable and smooth.
  • Tektro ACC hydraulic disc brakes provide confident stopping power in all weather conditions.
  • Shimano drivetrain is equipped with light, durable components.
  • Shimano Dynamo front hub powers the front light without the need for a battery.
  • Front and rear fenders keeps you dry on wet commutes.
  • Ghost stem, handlebars and seatpost.
  • 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.
