The illustration above is an example. We reserve the right, as long as the type, suitability and purpose of the bike are not reduced, to replace individual parts with components of the same or higher quality, so that the bike is delivered differently. The use of other components is currently mainly caused by delivery problems due to the Corona pandemic.

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.

 

SUPERFIT GEOMETRY

We at GHOST are introducing a new era of bicycle design and saying good-bye to traditional development methods. Starting immediately, we utilize a specially developed algorithm to holistically calculate our so-called “from-rider-to-bike-geometries”. This algorithm is called SuperFit

LEAF SPRING STYLE REAR END CONSTRUCTION

Inspired by the functionality of a leaf spring, the rear triangle of the LECTOR was completely redesigned in order to minimize vibrations at the rear of the frame. The result: improved traction at high speeds and more comfort for the rider.

INTEGRATED DOWNTUBE COVER

The durable cover not only protects the downtube, but also the brake and shift cables underneath. The protector can be removed or mounted without any tools. This means tool-less access to all cables making for easy cable exchanges. 

CHAIN STAY PROTECTION LECTOR

FULL INTEGRATED DROPPER POST

The Austrian manufacturer Eightpins is revolutionizing the dropper seat post. Depending on the frame size, each SuperFit bike comes with a different seat post travel. Thus, every rider can enjoy the full extent of travel. In combination with a straight seat tube, the seat angle remains identical for every rider. This guarantees that every rider can fully enjoy and benefit from the SuperFit experience regardless of what frame size he or she needs.

AXS READY

The bike can be easily switched to an electronic gear shift system.

REPLACEABLE RIVKLE BOTTLE CAGE MOUNT

For frame sizes S-XL, there always fit two RIVKLE bottle holders on the bike.

FLAT MOUNT REAR BRAKE MOUNT

In order to give the chain and seat stays the room they need to fully minimize vibrations, we decided on a flat brake mount. Compact appearance and the solution for space constraints.

Hidden treasure on long rides.

Invisible plus: The flexstays of the seat and chainstays enable the rear triangle to move upward directionally: a huge plus in comfort.

Invisibly routed, yet easily accessible.

Invisibly routed, yet still easily accessible: The cables disappear invisibly in the unique shape of our downtube of the SQUARE. If needed, easy access is guaranteed.

Wider is better.

Boost means wider hubs. A small adjustment for a great improvement: wider hubs result in higher stability on big wheelset diameters.

A competitive spirit.

We know what is needed on the track. First, because our team riders constantly provide us with a lot of feedback. Second, our development team itself is made up of former (and still partly active) riders. That's how we deliver a race-ready product: ready for the track right out of the box.

Designed with truly refreshing storage in mind.

There's plenty of space for refreshments. Bikes featuring this symbol provide plenty of space for a bottle. 

Best braking power, with exceptional control.

Whether in town or on terrain: The hydraulic disc brakes guarantee a safe and fast grip even in wet conditions, are easy to control and are not vulnerable in terms of dirt or performance loss.

CLEVERLY HIDDEN TOOLS

With the extremely light but robust Smarttube tools, the most important tools you need when biking can be easily stored in the handlebars. The minitool includes four hexagons bits and a Torx 25. The Smarttube chain tool has a tubeless repair function, tubeless plugs and a magnetic mount for a chain lock.

The Smarttube tools come with our Pro and World Cup models.

 

EIGHTPINS DROPPER POST

The Austrian manufacturer Eightpins is revolutionizing the dropper seat post. Depending on the frame size, each SuperFit bike comes with a different seat post travel. Thus, every rider can enjoy the full extent of travel. In combination with a straight seat tube, the seat angle remains identical for every rider. This guarantees that every rider can fully enjoy and benefit from the SuperFit experience regardless of what frame size he or she needs.

WE LOVE STANDARD

One derailleur hanger for all. To make it easier for everyone, we need more standards. SRAM now uses the „Universal derailleur hanger“, which not only reduces the number of spare parts, but also protects your rear derailleur from damage by folding backwards at impact.
