The top model of the ASX class! The bike features a light-weight aluminum frame, Fox fork and X-Fusion damper, naturally with air suspension. Avid disc brakes and a Shimano XT 30-speed drivetrain are also included. Experience optimum performance combined with reliability and low weight. A truly top model.
Ghost ASX 5500 Suspension Bike Technologies:
Tapered Headtube: The tapered head tube broadens towards the bottom leading to better force transfer from the fork to the frame. The increased stiffness of the tapered head tube combined with the tapered fork lead to the bicycle’s improved and more direct steering.
Specific Chainstay Length: Specific Chainstay Length means that the chainstays grow with frame size. This system already has a long tradition at GHOST. The principle is easy. Not only do our frames grow in height and in length at the front, but also at the chainstay at exactly the same ratio. This results in a perfectly balanced bike which offers superior riding performance in any frame size.
Ghost Custom Setup: Our Full Carbon Monocoque Rocker features a One Piece Design. It also increases rear triangle stiffness and reduces the total weight. Form follows function in the most beautiful way!
Continuous Cable Housing: The derailleur cables have continuous cable housings. Great long-term shift performance is guaranteed by eliminating any negative effects dirt might cause in the derailleur cables.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great bike
I bought the 2011 model in feb 2012 at a discount price from chain reaction as the new model was out with slight spec change. This model has the same spec as mine apart from on the fox forks now have the ctd. I have be riding mine for 15 month and had no problems, the bike rides really well on the ups and downs and would recommend this bike and chain reaction to buy from. The bike comes fully set up you only need to put handle bars on and peddles.Great bike go for it!!!
