The superstar athlete of our SE series. Our aluminum frame with all kinds of sophisticated technical details like Pressfit inner bearings and tapered headtube. Power to spare and great fun are guaranteed on every ride!
Ghost SE 9000 Hardtail Frame Features:
Frame: SE 7005 DB Tapered PF
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.
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.
Ovalized: Oval tube cross-sections are used in order to compensate for forces and stress in specific areas of the frame. The result is a stiffer, yet lightweight frame.
Oversized Downtube: By using tapered head tubes and PressFit inner bearings simultaneously, a broader down tube can be supported. This stable linkage is the key for achieving optimum stiffness.
3D-Hot Forging: Thanks to 3D-hot forging technology it is now possible to forge even the most difficult three-dimensional moulds. Unlike milled components, 3D forging technology yields a denser material structure of the aluminium alloy, which results in improved structural strength.
GCT: Ghost Custom Tubing: 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.
