Founded on Banshee’s KS Link suspension platform, the Rune 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 Rune’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. 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 Rune with SRAM’s new powerhouse Eagle drivetrain. The Eagle trigger shifter controls the crisp, accurate shifts of the 12-speed derailleur across the 10-50T cassette while the Shimano XT brakes deliver predictable power with the ability to stop you on a dime in a variety of conditions. The Rockshox Pike RC fork ups the suspension game with ultra-plush and smooth, terrain gobbling action, and external rebound and compression adjustment. Jenson rounds out the Rune Eagle build with RaceFace Aeffect 27.5” wheels wrapped with Schwalbe Hans Dampf rubber, a Rockshox Reverb Stealth dropper seat post, and a 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 Rune is game.

Why don't I see these bikes all over the trail? They are supremely capable, strong as iron, affordable, and now with this latest generation, reasonably light. The KS link is not just another "me too" 4-bar suspension; it really works. Pedal and brake reaction to suspension movement is zero. No kickback, no jacking. And the new hydroformed tubeset is downright elegant. I didn't know that could be done with 7000 series aluminum. Geo is super stable when things get ugly, bit of a hand full when things get tight. Really have to manhandle it on those switchbacks,.but it's worth it. This is my kid's bike and it makes my 2016 Rune look like farm equipment... but I still love that one too.
