Freeriding and downhill riding require strong and durable bikes. You're going to want a bike that has a lot of travel, strong wheels, and a great frame. The Banshee Darkside SLX Jenson Bike has 180mm of progressive and tuned KS suspension linkage, giving the Darkside a predictable and confidence-inspiring feeling. The benefits of this linkage over a single pivot are that it offers optimized active braking, a tunable leverage curve, increased lateral stiffness, improved axle path for the direct actuation of the RockShox Vivid R2C rear shock to reduce DU bushing rotation and friction. The slack and low geometry offer better stability at speed so that you can leave everyone else in the dust.
This Jenson USA Exclusive Banshee Darkside bike will arrive on your doorstep outfitted with a hand-selected set of components from our experts. It features a Shimano SLX M7000 drivetrain that includes an SLX 11-speed shifter and SLX rear derailleur. The SRAM PG1130 cassette has an 11-42-tooth gear range that makes climbing a breeze but doesn't sacrifice your ability to ride quickly downhill. The M6000 hydraulic disc brakes provide excellent stopping power so you can descend with confidence. The Spank Spike Race 33 wheelset is paired with Kenda Hellkat 27.5x2.4" tires for maximum freeriding performance. Both are tubeless ready so you can ditch the tubes, add valves, tape, and sealant for a lower tire pressure that provide a smoother ride, better traction, and fewer puncture flats. DVO Onyx suspension soaks up all the bumps on the front and the RockShox Vivid R2C rear shock absorbs the big hits on the rear.
