Banshee Prime Comp Bike 2013

Banshee recognized that the 29ers on the market are geared towards cross country riding, and there wasn’t anything for the rider that wants more travel and slacker geometry. Banshee also recognized that current 29ers are flexy, due to the longer chainstays and the manufacturer trying to save a few grams here and there.

The engineers at Banshee set out to create a frameset that was completely different from what is currently offered. They started with using 7005 Alloy, which is 10% stronger and has 50% higher fatigue strength than 6000 Series Alloy. The Prime has superior lateral stiffness due to the internally ribbed stays and short stiff links. As you pedal hard up a climb, power through corners, and sprint on the straight-away you’ll notice how much of a difference the lateral stiffness makes. Banshee will admit that the Prime is not the lightest frameset on the market. With a target weight of 7.5lbs (without the shock, size medium) the Prime is on the heavy side of 29er frames. However, the Prime was built to last more than one season. Strength, stiffness, and efficiency are the key factors the Prime was built upon. 

To ensure the best possible ride, Banshee didn’t cut any corners. They paired the Prime frame with the new Fox Float CTD. Whether you are climbing a hill or flying down the face of the mountain your rear shock can be quickly adjusted to make your ride efficient and comfortable. To round out the suspension package, the Manitou Tower Pro 29" fork is featured up front. The Manitou Tower Pro features 140mm of rock swallowing suspension. SRAM X5 shifters were paired with SRAM X7 derailleurs. Together, the rider has thirty gears to choose from, to create the perfect blend of power and ease. Sun Ringle Inferno wheels were chossen due to their strong nature, and ability to take a beating. The Banshee Prime Comp was designed to be able to go where the trail takes you, while still being economically sound.
