Show Description

When speed is everything, reach for the Lector 4.9. Engineered and equipped for pace, this 29er hardtail offers race-ready performance in a hyper-light carbon package. The Lector draws on its aggressive fit for powerful climbing and nimble handling, making it ideal for your local toonie race or fast group ride. The benefits of 29ers are hard to refute, especially when paired with an outstandingly fast and stiff wheelset. To match the performance potential of the frame, the Lector 4.9 gets Shimano's gold-standard XT groupset. Mega-sized disc rotors with XT brakes provide enduro levels of power when descending technical switchbacks, while the XT derailleur prevents excessive chain-slap. To keep that groupset shifting and braking, sleek internal routing ensures cables stay protected and smooth.

  • Carbon fibre frame is an ultra-stiff yet buzz-reducing lightweight beauty.
  • Tapered head tube means a wider bottom bearing than top. The result is a light, responsive, stiff ride under power.
  • Race-engineered geometry results in nimble handling, torsional stiffness and a low overall weight.
  • Internally routed cables provide consistent shifting performance, and won't get caught on branches or other high-velocity obstacles.
  • Chainstay reinforced with rugged plastic sheath prevents damage from chain-slap.
  • Fox Rhythm 32 fork with remote level for on-the-fly suspension adjustment.
  • DT Swiss X1900 Spline wheelset balances stiffness and weight.
  • Shimano XT 11-speed shifters offer superb performance in a lightweight, durable package.
  • Shimano XT crankset is equipped with 36-26T chainrings and is paired with an SLX 11-42T cassette.
  • Shimano XT brakes are professional-proven performers. Massive 180mm (front) and 160mm discs make them even better.
  • Shimano XT rear derailleur eliminates noisy chain slap when riding hard.
  • Continental X-King tires are proven performers for racing and hard riding.
  • 31.6mm seat tube diameter makes future dropper post upgrades a cinch.
  • 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.
