Ghost Kato 4 Hardtail Bike 2015
Here at Globalbike we’ve developed a close relationship with the ‘Ghost’ brand, and have always found their hardtails such as the Kato to sell extremely well! It’s hardly surprising given ghost’s outstanding reputation for value, and of course German quality.
Unlike the ‘SE’ model of previous years the Kato now features the hugely popular 650b / 27.5” wheel size, which excels on any terrain, whether that be smooth, fast rolling xc trails, or challenging technical trails. The short chainstays make for a nimble ride, with great acceleration; while the slack 68-degree head angle makes for a planted and confidence inspiring front-end.
The Kato 4 punches above its price, with its great value and ride. A 3x9 Shimano transmission with a high-end ‘XT’ rear-mech makes for a great starting point to get you going. The Suntour XCR air fork drastically improves composure on rough terrain compared to cheaper coil units, and is highly adjustable too. With a handlebar mounted lock-out feature the fork perfectly suits the bikes versatile nature. Other featres include large volme, bump softening Schwalbe tyres, and highly powerful Shimano hydraulic brakes.
