Jenson USA Exclusive: Banshee Rune SLX Spec-A Bike
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 Shimano’s workhorse SLX components. The SLX trigger shifter controls the crisp, accurate shifts of the SLX derailleur across the 11-46t 11 speed cassette while the Shimano SLX brakes deliver predictable power with the ability to stop you on a dime in any condition. The Fox Performance Float fork ups the suspension game with ultra-plush and smooth, terrain gobbling action, and external rebound and compression adjustment. Jenson rounds out the Rune SLX build with RaceFace Aeffect 27.5” wheels wrapped with Schwalbe Hans Dampf rubber, Race Face Aeffect 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 Rune is game.
