Description of Ghost KATO FS 5 Mountainbike 2016 - black/gray

Agile 650B Sports-tourer!
This is the entry to the world of true mountain biking. The Kato FS is redesigned with inspiration from Ghost's higher end full suspension bikes, but at the price of a hardtail. Through advanced FEM calculations they reduced its weight while increasing stiffness. The improved suspension kinematics equal the performance of their top models, and high quality bearings were added for near maintenance free durability. The optimized geometry is beginner friendly which is one of the reasons they'd like to call this bike “the smile maker“. Another reason? The price.
Whether uphill, downhill or on flat trails - the proven "Horst Link" kinematics, as well as the price convince.
The Kato FS rolls on 27.5-inch wheels, which allow more traction and speed. That what looks only to a small size difference, is precisely the difference that convinced so many drivers.
This agile trailbike offers a perfectly adjusted 130 mm FOX 32 Float Performance fork and FOX Float rear shock. Both offers the new FOX DPS Modes (Open/Medium/Firm). System integration provides maximized stiffness and the Shimano XT 2x11-speed drivetrain with damped rear dérailleur offers best functionality.
The Deore disc brakes offer great braking-power. High-Speed is guaranteed by Michelin's Wild Grip‘R tires with good grip and top rolling-characteristics on every terrain.

The hydro-formed Kato FS aluminum frame comes with all the technical refinements a modern fully frame must have. The need-based, optimal adjustment of the tube-shapes to the forces making the frame more stable despite lower weight.
Thanks to the tapered head tube, the forces of the fork better guided in the frame so the bike gets a more direct steering response. The Shimano Pressfit Standard increased rigidity and stability on the heavily loaded bottom bracket with minimum weight.
The 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.
PM Direct’s screwless design and simplified adjustability has become the new standard. Mounting the brake caliper directly onto the post results in a clean look and optimum heat transfer.
A 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.
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.
The derailleur cables are internal routed. Great long-term shift performance and a clean look is guaranteed.

The Kato FS is a reliable companion in tricky trails or on epic tours. Here, the superbly balanced chassis ensures not only the downhill but also the uphill and makes the bike a real sports-tourer for almost every terrain.
