Characteristics

Are you looking for a smartly equipped, reliable hardtail for your first race? The LECTOR Essential with SuperFit technology is exactly the right place to start. Depending on the frame size, the RockShox Reba soaks up all humps and bumps with 100 (XS-M) and 120 mm (L-XL) of travel. The width of the handlebar also differs, depending on the bike size. The SRAM GX Eagle provides flawless shifting performance, and the SRAM Level brakes will bring you to a halt with their 180/160 mm discs. The icing on the cake when it comes to fit and comfort is the width-adjustable saddle from Selle Italia.

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.

WIDTH ADJUSTABLE SADDLE

The width of SuperFit saddles is adjustable which enables the perfect fit for any individual body shape and sit bone width.

ECCENTRIC GRIPS

Thanks to their eccentric shape, the grips guarantee variable backsweep options. Special adjustment aids facilitate the brake lever adjustment in order to prevent pain and numbness.

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.
