Ghost ASX 5100 2014

Ghost Bikes ASX 5100 2014 starts to get serious with a component mix that's a great blend between value for money and serious fun.

The X-Fusion E1 RL Air shock really is an unsung hero.  X-Fusion are a German engineering house with an untouchable track record in research and development.  It was actually X-Fusion that invented and perfected the 'Pro-Pedal' valve that Fox have adopted and made their own.  The valve eliminates the 'pedal bob' but still allows the shock to work if a sudden force is put through the frame, such as rolling over a square edge rock or jumping off a big sudden drop.

The ASX 5100 2014 is fitted with this feature, but in all honesty the frame design is so sophisticated it's probably not really needed.  Uniquely, the position of the frame pivot points stop the frame from 'bobbing' under pedal load whilst still providing a fantastically dynamic ride over extremely rough terrain.

The RST GTRL Air RL 130mm air sprung fork has a remote lock out and good damping control.  The drive train is a blend of Shimano XT and Deore.  Braking is more than adequately handled by Shimano 445 with the more powerful 180mm discs offering great stopping power along with good feedback and modulation.  The complete bike weighs in at 14.3kg

As an alternative, their 5500 model benefits from a couple of significant upgrades for not a lot more money.  The fork moves up to a Fox 32F CTD 130mm (improved air spring and damping control) whilst the brakes are Shimano Deore 180mm disc.  The drive train is the same as the ASX 5100, Shimano XT and Shimano Deore.  

The 5500 is 700 grams lighter than Ghost's ASX 5100, weighing in at 13.6kg
