Banshee Darkside CC Air Frame 2016

Banshee Darkside Frame 2016

Want to join the Darkside, do you?

If you choose the fast and unforgiving path as Vader did, you will become an agent of shred. Yes, a Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware of the Darkside. Rage, fearlessness, aggression; the Darkside’s side of the Force are they. Easily it flows, quick to drop in for a run. If once you start down the gnarliest trail, forever will it dominate your density, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice. When you look at the Darkside, careful you must be. For the Darkside looks back.

Named after a local DH trail in none other than Whistler, Canada, the Darkside focuses on inducing smiles and inspiring confidence through its perfect blend of stability and flickability. The suspension linkage provides a predictable but lively feel, similar to what you might get from a well-designed single pivot design, but with all the benefits that come from using the KS Link virtual pivot system. The benefits of this linkage over a single pivot are that it offers optimized active braking, a tunable leverage curve, increased lateral stiffness, improved axle path for the direct actuation of the RockShox Vivid R2C B3 rear shock to reduce DU bushing rotation and friction. The result is a very supple suspension at the start of the travel, which ramps up to give a nice bottomless feel towards the end of travel while tracking, carrying speed well, and minimizing pedal feedback throughout.

The short chainstays on the Darkside conceive a bike that begs you to whip it, boost it or scrub it off jumps with panache. When combined with the linkage, you’re able to brake later, carry speed longer, boost bigger off lips and obstacles, and land big hits with poise. Additionally, the Darkside has a longer front-center and reach, and a slacker head angle that allows the bike to remain dynamic and playful when you sit back, and quick and mean when you lean forward and punch it.

"Powerful you have become, the Darkside I sense in you." - Master Yoda

Benefits:

  • Pedal neutral linkage: The suspension linkage has been optimized to result in minimal pedal kickback for a fun neutral feel
  • Internal ribbed stays: Increase stiffness for railing berms and holding lines through the roughest of trail sections, and boosting acceleration
  • Aggressive geometry: Slack angles, short chainstay, and long front center, adds up to pure bliss at high speeds
