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.
QR 15: The QR15 axle system for suspension forks is equivalent to the X12 standard for the rear triangle. It combines quick toolfree assembly of a quick-release lever with better rear axle stability at significantly lighter weight.
Pressfit BB: PressFit Bottom Brackets feature bearing shells that are directly pressed – and not screwed - into the bottom bracket housing. The larger housing width allows for a wider down tube. Greater support width results in increased stiffness. The screwless design improves stability and reduces maintenance.
Needle Bearing System: Our Needle Bearing System ensures super sensitive rear triangle performance, as many test results have impressively shown. The technology is both simple and ingenious. The needle bearings are located in the damper eyelet, replacing commonly used bush bearings, and ensure a minimum break-away torque. The low torque results in an outstanding responsiveness to even the smallest bumps.
ISCG: The ISCG recordings can be found on our 4Crossund DH frame. The International Standard for Chain Guide is a standardized 3-point mounting of chain guides on the bottom bracket shell. Advantage: With the installation of chain guides, the bottom bracket can not be installed or removed.
Hydroformed Tubes: We do not use standardized tubesets, but develop our frames and required tubes ourselves. A lightweight, yet sturdy frame requires specifically adapted forms and wall thicknesses.
E-Type: This technology means that the front derailleur is screwed directly onto the frame. Frame stressing shell mounting solutions are a thing of the past. The result of this system integration is another improvement yielding even lighter frames. In addition, you will also notice significantly improved performance. Thanks to the ultra-precise manufacturing process the derailleur is always perfectly located in relation to the chain ring. Crisp and supremely precise gear shifting provides even more riding fun.
Anti Squat Technology: Clever positioning of the rear triangle pivot points eliminates squatting during pedaling (anti-squat effect) and offers efficient power transmission without unwanted bobbing. Traction is improved and negative forces are eliminated.
X-12 System: Thanks to the X-12 rear-axle standard, it makes sense to use a through-axle system on a wider spectrum of bicycles. The Syntace X-12 system is light and yet super stiff because the hub axle is clamped tightly into the rear triangle under great axial tension.
Smooth Ratio Suspension: The rocker activates the shock with a transmission ratio of 2:1. This means that the suspension element moves by 1 cm for 2 cm of travel at the chainstay. You’ll notice the result immediately. The suspension operates noticeably more sensitively and is much easier to tune. In addition, the operating friction forces are much lower because the damper requires less air pressure. In addition to the immensely improved sensitivity, this also ensures more durability.
Balance Center of Gravity: Due to the low bottom bracket and a central damper position, the center of gravity is central and low. The perfect weight distribution guarantees neutral and balanced handling.
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.
PM Direct: PM Direct’s screwless design and simplified adjustability has become the new standard. Mounting the brake caliper directly onto to the post results in a clean look and optimum heat transfer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by deebag37 awesome bike and what a bargain
This is a sick all round mountain bike and such a bargain at this price even a better deal than I got .
The talas forks really work well for different rides and conditions and the snake skin tubeless ready tires are good too
Had a few rides on it now and it takes anything I through at it and fills me with confidence
The ei system is faultless And works beautifully
