Description

Show Description

Trails await. Go ride them. Leveraging higher-grade aluminum than its younger siblings, the Kato 7 also features improved components. The super-sensitive, buttery RockShox fork is adjustable and can be locked out for climbing or commuting. 29-inch wheels makes for a fast-rolling and stable ride that will power through most obstacles. Shimano disc brakes provide solid stopping power and modulation when you need it, and are reliable for all-season use. Shifting is precise thanks to Shimano SLX shifters, mated to a solid SLX front derailleur and sweet XT rear mech. And the burly, trail-ready rims will survive rough terrain without feeling like a set of boat anchors.

  • Aluminum frame reduces road vibration while keeping the weight low and the cost reasonable.
  • Shortened chainstays produce a fast-accelerating and nimble ride.
  • Adjustable 100mm RockShox fork can be locked out for added rigidity.
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide solid stopping power and modulation in wet trail conditions.
  • Shimano SLX 11-speed shifts mated to SLX front and XT rear derailleurs provide fast-acting shift performance.
  • Shimano SLX crank and cassette gives a versatile, trail-ready gear range.
  • 29-inch wheels are fast-rolling, smooth and help power through tricky sections.
  • Rodi Blackrock rims laced to Shimano hubs are smooth rolling, reliable and trail-ready.
  • Continental X-King tires are proven trail performers.
  • 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.
