Inspired by Canada, made in Germany- In the late 90s, the Canadian North Shore was the birthplace of freeride mountain biking: bike enthusiasts bridged with wooden ladders on uneven ground and carpentered roller coaster-like trails. Ghost have dedicated the North Shore frame to those freeride origins.

Geometry Concept: Through years of experience, Ghost have developed a very effective principle that can now be found on all of their mountain bikes. The features are: short chainstays, a slack headtube angle, and a steep seat tube angle. The short chainstays give you manoeuvrability in corners, the slack headtube angle gives the control in the descents and the steep seat tube angle creates the best sitting position for efficient climbing. The magic combination of these three key measurements also results in the best wheelbase length and cockpit length for every frame size. The results is the optimum combination of manoeuvrability, control and propulsion.
Four Bar Linkage: Rear-suspension performance used and proven for years by GHOST, the Four Bar Linkage system uses an advanced principle where braking forces don´t influence the function of the suspension. Pedal efficiency up the hill and maximum traction down the hill are guaranteed!
Hydroformed Aluminium: The process of hydroforming uses extremely high pressure liquids to form aluminium to the desired shape in a mold. One of the biggest advantages of the hydroforming process is summarized by the word ‘force flow’. This means that – every area of the frame is optimized not only for the best strength and stiffness, but also for the best force flow. In addition to the technical advantages the hydroforming process allows production of the most stunning designs.
ISCG: The International Standard Chain Guide is a standardized 3-point mounting system to mount chain guides to bottom bracket shells.
