Show Description

Not a race machine, and not your typical hardtail either. The Roket feels smooth like a full-suspension ride, but has the simplicity of a hardtail. How is this possible? It’s the "+" in the 27.5+ design. The wheels have a large contact surface to give the Roket fat-bike-esque grip with MTB low rolling resistance. Tune the volume to launch this rocket down rooty trails and ride rough surfaces anywhere on the globe. For epic alpine rides, a 1x11 Shimano SLX drivetrain gives you the gears to grind your way to the top, and the top-end speed to shred down. If you bite off more than you can chew, Tektro disc brakes and 180mm rotors will bring the speed back to a manageable level.

  • Aluminum frame designed for adventure riding and bikepacking missions.
  • Hydroformed tubesets are beautiful and shave weight where possible.
  • Frame is ready for internally routed dropper post, should you wish to upgrade.
  • Tapered head tube means a wider bottom bearing than top for a responsive, stiff ride under power.
  • SR Suntour Aion 35 Fork features 130mm of travel and 35mm stanchions for lateral stiffness.
  • Boost spacing with 15/12mm thru-axle provides a stable and stiff platform for big wheels.
  • Tektro hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors keep things under control when you're coming in hot.
  • 1x11 Shimano SLX M7000 gruppo offers the gear range to get you up and down any mountain pass, even fully loaded.
  • Race Face Aeffect crank is paired with a single narrow-wide 32T chainring.
  • 35mm Ghost-brand cockpit won't flex under the intense pressures of hard trail riding.
  • Massive 2.65in. WTB Trail Boss tires provide amazing traction at lower pressure.
  • Alex rims have an internal width of 30mm, the perfect companion to fat tires.
  • SDG Fly saddle is comfortable for long days.
  • 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.
