Jenson Exclusive: Banshee Spitfire SLX Spec-A Bike
Founded on the excellent performance of 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 with better traction through the 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 boost 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.
Homing 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 Exclusive Build pairs the Spitfire with Shimano’s SLX 11-speed drivetrain. Using the all new Race Face Aeffect Cranks, you get performance that transfers power efficiently and keeps the bike’s weight down. The precise SLX shifter provides snappy and precise shifts across the 11-46T cassette. Giving you plenty of gear range to charge the straights, and spin your way up the climbs. When it comes time to slow down, the Shimano SLX brakes deliver predictable power with the ability to stop you on a dime in any condition. Fox has you taken care of in the suspension realm with ultra-plush and smooth, terrain gobbling action. Jenson rounds out the SLX build with RaceFace Aeffect 27.5" wheels wrapped with large Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires, a Rock Shox Reverb Stealth dropper seat post, and Race Face Aeffect cockpit. So whether you are out on a casual trail ride or looking to test your skills on the Enduro scene, this well-equipped Banshee Spitfire is game.
