Fast, agile hardtail mountain bike that climbs efficiently uphill.

The frame of the Ghost Kato has been completely redesigned, with internally routed cables and a fresh design. But one thing has remained the same: The KATO is simply fun!

With 100 mm of travel and extremely low-maintenance components, it is the perfect entry-level mountain bike that is available in many different variants: with single, dual or triple drive, with 27.5 or 29 inch wheels - and at a really attractive price.

Features of the Ghost KATO Essential AL

  • FEM-optimized aluminum frame
  • Forged chainstay yoke
  • Attractive design
  • Mounting points for side stand, mudguards & bottle cage

Complex calculations for uncomplicated solutions

The FEM-optimized frames have been optimized down to the last detail with complex calculations. This results in simple solutions, but much more complex than you might suspect.

Forged chainstay yoke

The connection of chainstay and bottom bracket is a very crucial point on the bike. Through the elaborate forging solution, a very high stiffness and strength is achieved.
