Why Banshee?

If you’re looking for a bike built with superior performance in mind, you’ll want to check out our selection of Banshee Bikes. 

Read more about why we love this brand below. Then visit us at the shop to check them out and talk customizations.

Exceptionally Strong Frames

Hydroformed Tubes - Fewer welds, less waste material, and higher precision when compared to standard tubes, Banshee uses this process on all frames to ensure they have a superior strength to weight ratio, and optimized stiffness profiles. Internally Ribbed Stays - Internal ribs maximize lateral stiffness and strength to weight ratio resulting in superior efficiency under hard acceleration and better control and confidence when riding at the limit. 

Forged Frame Sections - Banshee forges their own customs frame sections rather than CNC machining or using generic parts from other manufacturers which results in stronger, lighter frames with lower environmental impact. 

Forged Shock Cage - The foundation of the KS2 platform, Banshee forges one large piece per side rather than simply machining from billet or making in multiple sections. The final design is significantly stronger, lighter and stiffer to create a solid foundation for the whole frame.

No Compromise Components

Engineered Flex - By designing optimized flex into each forged component, they work together as a system to take the edge off the sharpest hits as you ride while maintaining lateral stiffness to maximize power transfer and efficiency.

Expert Suspension Linkage - The new KS2 linkage structure is the culmination of 3 years of work and over 10 years of experience. It offers ultra low friction, lower overall leverage ratio (under 2.5:1), optimized axle path, antisquat, and antirise for maximum control.

Spitfire V3

The spitfire is designed from the ground up to be an incredibly rewarding and fun trail bike.

The progressive suspension provides great trail feedback and response, while enabling you to carve tighter turns and easily hold high lines over roots. We love the spitfire because it is not a plow bike, it thrives when you pick good lines and man-handle it around the trail. For many, (us included) this is what riding really is about. Adding incredible pedal efficiency, rider optimized weight distribution and ergonomics… the spitfire is a true riders favorite.
