Jenson USA Exclusive: Banshee Prime SLX Spec-A Bike
Rowdy all-mountain attitude.
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. Other augmentations include, a 44/56mm tapered headtube which cleverly permits the use of a zero stack headset cup to reduce the stack height if needed. There are also ISCG05 chainguide mounts, a Low Direct Mount S3 front derailleur and cable guides for dropper posts. Chain and seat stays are internally ribbed to increase stiffness, while custom hydroformed 7005 T6 aluminum tubes and forgings are used throughout to strategically increase stiffness without adding weight.
This Jenson USA Exclusive Banshee Prime SLX build is equipped and ready for the party, so throw on your best clipless dancing shoes, throw a leg over, and get ready to rage. The hydroformed aluminum frame, with its 160mm RockShox Pike RCT fork and Cane Creek DB Coil Inline rear shock, lays down a solid foundation for the Jenson USA handpicked components. At the heart of the build is a Shimano SLX 1x11 Speed drivetrain that efficiently transfers the power to a set of Race Face Aeffetct 29" wheels wrapped in Contnental X-King rubber. Located on the Race Face cockpit you will find the controls for the powerful SRAM Level brakes. Augmenting the versatility of the already stellar Jenson SLX build is a RockShox Reverb 125mm dropper seatpost that'll allow you to crush both the descents and climbs with authority.
