    Summary

    Expirience with the Ghost RIOT TRAIL ESSENTIAL

    Ghost RIOT TRAIL ESSENTIAL Review After the market success of the "Alu-Riots" Ghost pushes for the model year 2023 for the first time also a carbon version. The RIOT TRAIL ESSENTIAL is not only visually attractive but also has technical refinements such as the integrated dropper-seatpost on board. Especially in extremely steep terrain, this combination makes for smooth handling. The sporty riding position allows for very effective pedaling. On the way to the summit, the Ghost Fully lets it rip. With its 510 bandwidth on the gears and the overall athletic alignment, the on demanding single tracks competitors got some catching up to do. A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 5 years warranty Ghost sets the bar high! Caution when selecting the size: the Aluminium frame sizing runs big.
