Banshee Darkside GX DH Jenson Bike 2017

Banshee Darkside GX DH Jenson Bike 2017

The Classic BC Downhill Rig that Holds Nothing Back

Banshee named their Darkside Downhill Bike after a local Whistler trail, and as you might have guessed, it lives up to its name. The suspension linkage is predictable and lively, similar to the experience of riding a well-designed single pivot link. Banshee decided to take things a step further, though. They built the Darkside around the KS Virtual Pivot system. This system optimizes active braking, offers a tunable leverage curve, increased lateral stiffness, and an awesome axle path. The super smooth, bottomless feel makes carrying speed a dream, all while minimizing pedal feedback throughout.

Short chainstays make the Darkside a super snappy, nimble bike that’s irresistible to whip, boost, and scrub off your favorite features. That, combined with a longer front to center, and a slacker head tube angle makes it dynamic and playful on a variety of terrain types and conditions.

This beast has been carefully built here at Jenson with parts that we sourced and assembled to maximize your fun. The 10-speed Shimano Zee drivetrain features an 11-28T cassette that gives you exactly the compact range you look for in a DH bike. Spank’s Spike wheels are, wide, stiff, and light, giving you all the stability, traction, and smoothness you could ask for. Shimano disc brakes add powerful stopping power, and the Rockshox 200mm suspension is super plush and caters to rough terrain. The Magic Mary Tires are terrifically fast-rolling and tacky, and the Race Face cockpit gives you the absolute best in handling and stability.

Features

  • Rockshox Boxxer RC Fork gives you plushness, adjustability, and excellent small bump sensitivity
  • Shimano Zee Drivetrain gives you ten precise gears for whatever you come across in the park or DH track
  • Rockshox Vivid is smooth, stable, and responsive
  • Spank Spike Wheels give you terrific traction with wide, light, and fast rolling smoothness
  • Race Face cockpit gives you 35mm diameter on the bars and clamp, as well as a nice, wide grip
