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 ebikes. The Square Trekking B2.8 has a rack, lights, on-board computer, fenders and a stand. It's a fast, clean option that can reach speeds of 32km/h without you breaking a sweat. Start pedalling and the motor kicks in to assist, and you can adjust the amount of extra power you want. The top-of-the-line, Bosch Performance Line CX drive unit is designed to shine on long days travelling through steep terrain. The fork has 63mm of travel to smooth out potholes and rough gravel and the reliable Shimano Deore shifters keep you rolling smoothly. Bottom line: the Square Trekking B2.8 is the answer to a faster ride, no spandex required.
