GHOST KATO | everyday hardtail mountain bike

Our classic KATO redesigned.

Our KATO is a fast, agile hardtail mountain bike that climbs uphill efficiently. The frame 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 100mm of travel and extremely low-maintenance components, it is the perfect entry-level mountain bike, available in many different versions: with single, double or triple drive and 27.5 or 29 inch wheels, in many great colors - and all this at a really attractive price.

Complex calculations for uncomplicated solutions.

Our optimized FEM frames have been improved with complex calculations down to the last detail. The resulting, seemingly simple solutions are much more complex than they appear. 

Forged solution.

The connection between the chainstay and bottom bracket is a very crucial point on the bike. With our elaborate forged solution we achieve a very high degree of stiffness and strength.
