Ghost Northshore Suspension Bike Technology:
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.
Multifucntional Bottom Bracket - The MBB is hollow-forged and unites a total of 5 functions in only one component:
Bottom bracket adapter.
Main bearing for the rear triangle.
Connection to the down tube.
Connection to the seat tube.
Inter. Standard For Chain Guide- Our 4-Cross and DH frames are ISCG compatible. The International Standard Chain Guide is a standardized 3-point mounting system to mount chain guides to bottom bracket shells. The advantage: Mounting chain guides does not require disassembly and reassembly of the bottom bracket.
Hydroformed Tubeset - 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.
GQC - Ghost Quality Center - We only accept premium quality. This is why our bicycles and all components are tested according to the latest technology standards. Our test labs enable us to simulate trail and real-world riding in the lab and to fast-forward a bike’s entire life cycle within a few days. We want to make absolutely sure that you are not a part of our test series, but get a bicycle you can trust.
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.
Postmount 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.
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!
Center Of Competence - Development and assembly, test procedures and rides, everything happens under one roof here.
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.
Balanced Centre 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.
