Show Description

Since about 1880, bikes have been pretty cool, and a little battery power and speed gives them a quantum leap forward. With an electric bike, you can commute by bike more often, explore your city, ride to neighbouring towns and conquer fiendishly steep hills. Ghost has put years of experience and testing into these urban/commuter e-bikes. The Square Cross B1.8 is a fast, clean option that can reach speeds of 32km/h without making you too sweaty. Start pedalling and the motor kicks in to assist, and you can adjust the amount of extra power you want. The fork has 63mm of travel to smooth out potholes and rough gravel and the reliable Shimano Altus shifters will keep you rolling smoothly. Bottom line: the Square Cross B1.8 is a super-speedy ride, no spandex required.

  • Aluminum frame offers strength, lightness and comfort at a reasonable cost.
  • SR Suntour fork provides 63mm of travel to make gravel roads feel like asphalt.
  • Bosch Active Line drive unit provides assistance up to 32km/h.
  • Bosch PowerPack 400 lithium-ion battery offers 400Wh of energy.
  • Battery charges from 0 to 100% in only 3.5 hours.
  • Bosch Purion on-board computer displays.
  • Remote control and display is at your fingertips.
  • 4 pedal-assist levels adjust for longer range or faster speed (you have to pedal to get power from the motor).
  • Walk assistance mode makes pushing easier.
  • Shimano Altus shifter and 9-speed derailleur.
  • Tektro hydraulic disc brakes provide confident stopping power in all conditions.
  • Alex TD19 rims laced on Formula hubs provide the durability and strength needed for e-bikes.
  • Durable Kenda Flint Ridge tires provides low rolling resistance.
  • Ghost stem, handlebars, seatpost and saddle.
  • Distance on a charge varies by speed, assistance level, wind, hills, road surface, frequency of starting and stopping, gearing, weight carried and pedal cadence; expect somewhere between 25 and 150km.
  • 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.
