Characteristics

It is the lightest series bike in the World Cup, one of the fastest - and one of the sharpest! Our LECTOR is a racing machine waiting to unleash its potential on the route. It is extremely stiff, making it direct, agile and focused: aggressive uphill, controlled downhill! This mixture is reflected visually in its edgy appearance with smooth transitions - including the trains and lines, all of which have been hidden in the down tube, seat stays and bottom bracket. What’s more, the 31.6 mm seat tube diameter allows the use of telescopic seatposts. But our LECTOR series not only contains the high-end weapons for our GHOST Factory Racing Team - we have the right model for a whole spectrum of different needs. Whether minimalist with a carbon rigid fork, with 2x11, 1x12 or Di2 or with telescopic seatpost - there is an ideal machine for everyone, from the thoroughbred racer to marathon riders.

TECHNOLOGIES & FEATURES

Innovation, development and design: core elements explained.

Our bikes profit from more than 25 years of experience: we've always been detail loving bike addicts. Therefore, we are constantly developing our bikes and playing at the top of the game with innovative concepts and new designs. Superior suspension designs like our RIOT-link, award-winning design and incomparable riding pleasure make up for one thing: our bikes are our pride.

UC carbon

Our lightest material for optimum performance.

Only the best carbon fibres are used in this precision manufacturing technology. Thanks to optimised material distribution, we achieve maximum stiffness with less material consumption - and minimise weight at the same time.

LC carbon

Light carbon to keep down the weight.

Stiff, strong and precision-tooled. Our carbon process is optimised by the layered structure on each point of the frame and provides the best possible power to weight ratio. 

The X12 standard

A stable axle for stiffer rear stays.

The hub axle is clamped with considerable axial stress in the rear, saving a great deal of weight in the entire system and obtaining a high degree of stiffness.

Selected tyre combination

The best tyre solution.

Our Race Setup uses different tyres to obtain the optimum blend of traction, grip, low rolling resistance and optimum cornering. This isn’t a mishmash; it’s sophisticated tuning for the relevant discipline.

DI2-ready

A free choice.

Those who want to convert to an electronic gear-shifting system can do so easily with our high-tech solution: our system allows you to install mechanical and electronic cable routing. 

The V2 disconnect brake mount

Redistributed braking force.

An innovative, direct connection between the rear brake and the X12 axle. This technical solution reduces the weight and some of the forces are uncoupled from the seat stay. Furthermore, no threads are required in the frame to mount the brake calliper.

Internally routed cables

Keeping it clean with super protection.

Greater protection and a cleaner look are the main arguments for internally routed cables and wires. Having long since been standard for racing bikes, internal routing has now been adopted by the MTB sector.

Race-ready

Competition-quality

We know what’s necessary on the track. Firstly, because our team riders constantly provide us with lots of feedback. Secondly, because our development team is made up of former (and some active) riders. This means that we deliver a race-ready product: out of the box ready for the track.

Plastic frame protection

Minimum weight, effective protection.

Hard plastic protection that offers effective, lightweight protection to protect the chainstay from being hit by the chain.
