While most E-MTB hardtails tend to be in their element on fire roads, the GHOST HYBRIDE LECTOR S6.7+ LC gives a stellar showing and rides like a real trail rocket. Its angular carbon frame looks ready for action even while standing still, with the powerful Shimano STEPS E8000 motor is stylishly integrated without being too overt. With motocross-inspired dual wheel sizes, the 29″ front wheel and 2.8″-wide 27.5″ rear wheel with an aggressive tread perform brilliantly, generating the perfect synthesis of precise handling and masses of traction. The slack head angle and well-considered spec on the HYBRIDE LECTOR ensure no shortage of fun on mellow terrain, so as a rider it’s easy to have an enjoyable ride on this really lightweight bike. Suited to any ability, it’s a very stable ride thanks to the sorted geometry. The GHOST HYBRIDE LECTOR sets a new benchmark for E-MTB hardtails, and throws up the question of why all hardtails don’t look like this.
