Our Pro rider Anne Terpstra has already proven it in the World Cup – with the LECTOR, you can push limits and win big races. Now, our legendary Cross Country machine has also convinced the Red Dot jury: The LECTOR Advanced was awarded the world-renowned Red Dot Design Award for its outstanding, innovative design.
GHOST LECTOR Advanced with innovative SuperFit geometry
In 2020, the legendary race hardtail LECTOR was relaunched. Based on the groundbreaking SuperFit concept, the LECTOR has become the ultimate Cross Country machine with which technically demanding descents can be mastered with ease. Team rider Anne Terpstra was involved in the development of the new LECTOR SuperFit and won the UCI World Cup in Vallnord/Andorra with the bike. The victory not only brought her back to the top of the world after a long injury break, it also provided direct confirmation of the SuperFit concept.
„I have never felt so comfortable and safe on a bike before.“
- Anne Terpstra, winner UCI Wold Cup 2019 Vallnord -
Sophisticated race machine for demanding XC trails and long-distance tours
The GHOST LECTOR Advanced is a sophisticated racing machine for demanding XC trails and long-distance tours. The new SuperFit geometry concept, which focuses on the rider and his or her proportions right from the development stage of the bike, ensures an optimal riding experience. It enables efficient, painless pedaling with full control in every riding situation.
In terms of equipment, the World Cup-proven carbon hardtail convinces with its curved, vibration-minimizing rear triangle, a smart downtube cover and the long-stroke, mechanical seat post by Eight Pins. All in all, a race hardtail with modern equipment that easily masters even demanding terrain.
The Red Dot is a renowned award for superior design quality. International judges only award this coveted seal of quality to designs which truly set themselves apart from the competition through their outstanding design quality. The judges examine all the entries submitted in order to assess not only the aesthetics but also the selected materials, level of craftsmanship, surface structure, ergonomics and functionality. True to the motto "In search of good design and innovation", only the best design concepts are awarded prizes. In 2020, the GHOST LECTOR convinced the jury with its iconic design and unique Superfit concept.
