Ghost Square Cross B1.8 E-bike - Unisex


See available urban and commuter bikes


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.
