Banshee Darkside ZEE Jenson Bike 2017

Who knew the path to the Darkside would be so fun

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 Cane Creek 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.

The Banshee Darkside ZEE bike will arrive on your doorstep outfitted with a hand selected set of components from our experts here at JensonUSA. It gets the reliability and functionality of the Shimano Zee 10 speed drivetrain and a set of Spank Spike EVO Race 28 wheels wrapped in Kenda Honey Badger DH Pro tires. A Rock Shox Boxxer fork with 200mm travel will devour any trail that stands in its way. Shimano SLX brakes provide powerful and reliable stopping in any condition. Race Face provides the cockpit components while a SDG Falcon saddle tops the Race Face Evolve seat post.

Can you run 26" wheels on this?
A shopper on Apr 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Banshee designed this around 27.5" wheels, so, while it may be possible theoretically, you can expect some performance would be compromised.
I'm 5'5" (165cm) 140lbs(64km). Would I fit better on a small or medium Darkside..I'm thinking the medium because of longer reach... Would the spring on the Cane Creek DB be different between the small and medium.. Possibly making the medium too stiff for a lightweight rider?
