Last year at Crankworx we showed you Ghost’s Asket, an affordable hardtail with aggressive, slack, long and low geometry (66.6-degree headangle and 430mm chainstays). New for 2018, Ghost is introducing the KatoX hardtails which use the same frame but bring the bikes down to a much lower price point.

The white model pictured is the KatoX 4.9 which slots in at just 999€. For the price, the build is pretty darn good including a Shimano SLX Shadow Plus rear derailleur, a Sunrace 1x11 cassette with 11-46t range, and SR Suntour Raidon 34 XC LO-R Air fork with 120mm travel.

Step up to 1499€ and you can get the red and black KatoX 6.9 with a SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain and DT Swiss wheel upgrade. Up front on the 6.9, you get SR Suntour’s Axon LO-R fork which gets 120mm of travel, has 34mm stanchions and their PCS damping system. 

Hit up www.ghost-bikes.com for detailed information on the KatoX builds and dealer locator.
