The Ghost grappler combines drop handlebars with serious tyre clearance to create a bike just as happy ripping single track as riding on a long tour. 

One way to think about it is a Karate Monkey with drop handelbars. 

 

A Trail Bike Tailored for Drop Bars

Off-road enthusiasts have been Frankensteining drop bars onto trail bikes for decades, so we designed the Ghost Grappler to scratch that itch with a little more precision. Engineered first and foremost around a stable and comfortable drop-bar hand position, its trail-ready geo provides a spirited ride on mixed terrain.

Cleared for girthy tires and decorated with an array of mounts for hauling your daily provisions and overnight gear, the Ghost Grappler is ready to take you and your paraphernalia down that overgrown fire road for an extrasensory experience. There’s nothing to be afraid of. Probably.
