Banshee Spitfire GX Jenson Bike 2016

Banshee Spitfire Jenson Custom Collection GX 27.5 2016 Bike

Founded on Banshee’s all-new KS Link suspension platform, the Spitfire 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 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 Spitfire’s overall stiffness and responsiveness by lowering the 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 Spitfire 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. A 44/56mm tapered headtube cleverly permits the use of a zero stack headset cup to reduce the stack height if needed. Chain and seat stays are internally ribbed for increased stiffness and 7005 T6 aluminum is used throughout with custom hydroformed tubes and forgings.

This Jenson USA custom build pairs the Spitfire with SRAM’s GX1 11-speed drivetrain. The GX1 trigger shifter let’s you play with the Sram XG-1150 cassette while the SRAM Guide DB controls the centerline rotors with 180mm up front and 160mm in the rear, you’ll be able to stop on the dime. Jenson rounds out the Spitfire GX1 with RaceFace components. The Spitfire has a RaceFace narrow-wide 32-teeth crankset that powers RaceFace Aeffect 27.5 wheels wrapped with Schwalbe Nobby Nic’s. So whether you want to hang with the XC crowd or crave a freeride, this well-equipped Banshee Spitfire is game.

Reviews

    Pinkbike - "It's easy to get hung up on how much travel a bike has, but even though 140mm of travel might make you think 'trail bike,' the Spitfire's confident handling in steeper terrain places it right into the all-mountain category." - Mike Kazimer

Comments about Banshee Bikes Banshee Spitfire GX Jenson Bike 2016:

Purchased this bike in february of 2016 and ive never been so happy with a purchase! This thing says 140mm travel but ive ridden hard over some of the steepest at most technical rides in so cal and it begs for more. The suspension is plush, the 1x11 is perfect on climbs (and i do steep climbs), the geometry is perfect and im able to ride it all day. I keep it on the slackest setting and when its pointed down, HOLD ON!!!! THIS BABY IS A ROCKET! By far the funnest bike ive ever owned. And who cares about weight. If a heavy bike scares you, you dont ride enough. Id keep this aluminum frame any day. Strong and sturdy and takes a beating. What more can i say. This bike is amazing!

  • Q:

    Can the frame decals be removed or are they clear coated?

      A:

      The decals are not clear coated but I doubt that means they are necessarily removable. You probably want to paint the frame something other than yellow huh? The bike rides so well I can ignore the color.

      A:

      I got the all black frame and there aren't any decals, at least I don't
      think they're decals. The graphics are part of the paint job except for
      the Banshee symbol above the front fork, which I believe I could remove if
      I wanted to. Sorry I can't be of more help.

      A:

      Hey Shane,
      Yes, the fork on this is tapered. We will update the description, but you can also see the flare of the crown if you click on the image and zoom in. Cheers!
