The Banshee Prime is equipped and ready for the party, so throw on your best clipless dancing shoes, throw a leg over, and get ready to rage. Founded on Banshee’s all-new KS Link suspension platform, the Prime frame features an insanely supple design as it completely eliminates pivot resistance and nearly all DU bushing rotation. To achieve this, Banshee’s KS Link provides the rider with better traction through its ability to react faster to sudden changes in the terrain, resulting in superior small bump compliance for an overall smoother ride. The short one-piece forged linkages boosts the Prime’s overall stiffness and responsiveness by lowering its center of gravity, while its fully sealed, oversized bearings and low pivot loads keep maintenance virtually non-existent.
Honing in on the small details, the Prime features Banshee’s new modular dropout system which uses a 3-position adjustable geometry and “flip-chips” to alter the head angle in half degree increments, and also change the BB height in quarter inch increments, transforming the bike into whatever you need it to be. A 44/56mm tapered headtube cleverly permits the use of a zero stack headset cup to reduce the stack height if needed. When it came time to create the lines for the tubing, Banshee didn’t just replicate shapes and weld together some aluminum pipes. Instead, they meticulously hydroformed 7005 AL aluminum tubing and internally ribbed the chain and seat stays are for a noticeable increase in strength and stiffness, and a decrease in weight.
The Prime can be easily adjusted from neutral setting to be higher and steeper to feel more like a regular trail bike with good pedal clearance for tight technical terrain, or it can be dropped down to the slack and low setting to become the high speed fighter jet of a bike. This adjustability is important, as the low and slack geometry is not suited to every trail, as you may well know. Sometimes it is more important to have the pedal clearance that comes with a slightly higher BB height, and sometimes the more nimble feel of steeper geometry when riding slower and more technical trails.
