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 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 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.
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 exclusive build pairs the Spitfire with SRAM's Eagle 12-speed drivetrain. The Eagle trigger shifter lets you play with the SRAM X01 Eagle 10-50t cassette while the Shimano SLX brakes have you stopping on a dime. Jenson rounds out the Spitfire Eagle build with RaceFace Aeffect 27.5 wheels wrapped with Schwalbe Hans Dampf rubber and a Rockshox Reverb Stealth dropper seat post. So whether you want to hang with the XC crowd or crave a freeride, this well-equipped Banshee Spitfire is game.
- "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
