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.
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.
Flex Seatstays: Comfortable and speedy, the flexible chain stays absorb small impacts not only to make it a comfortable ride, but also to use your energy more efficiently.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve14 Excellent bike, quick but good for longer rides.
Had my 4900 for 12 months, really reliable and enjoyable bike to ride. Had a Cannondale Synapse carbon before, this bike is more responsive (and £1k cheaper!!)..would maybe upgrade wheels, as frame has quality to take it. All in all, a brilliant bike that will last years, and really good value.
