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.
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.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GhostRider85 This really is a do everything bike
This was a toss up as i was torn between the yeti 575; giant trance; orange five or this.
I went for this despite seeing the other bikes having great reviews and actually i freaking love this bike and im glad i did.
In terms of price it has the specs of these other bikes despite being about a grand (in the sale) cheaper. it is a kg heavier but the feel of it i don't mind this 1 kg as it is solid i really can't see any way this could break the welding is solid and clean and the tubing thick.
I was surprised that there aren't many reviews for this bike (which is why i'm doing this review in case anyone is undecided) the cagua frame is perfectly balanced and the specs are great the gearing is quick and clear.
I wanted a do everything bike as i live in munich germany and am often going to the mountains and this does everything and leaves a smile on your face.
The frame is solid and well made and i like it being aluminium as i dont have to worry about rusting i think this will last a very very long time.
the components are top the back shock i like alot the xvert are substantial and take the sting out of everything i have hucked it on. the fox talas basically speak for themselves they are great. though i didn't have an o ring to set the lag on the fork which was a shame.
I have yet to bottom out either.
The only thing i would say is the handle bar that came as standard isnt amazing i would suggest getting one you like and swopping this out and the tyres are heavy but again you can swop them out for some maxxis minions... then you have an absolute dream bike that does everything. enduro; downhill (pretty knarghly downhill as well); and then even XC and can jump as well with it at the dirt parks its really great.
im not sure if the rrp price they say here is right €4700? as i saw it in a local shop for €3400 but still this is the best price i found it for either way.
Cant recommend it enough!
Get a good lock though as it will attract thieves as it is a smart looking bike.
hope i helped with your desicion.
