We took a minute to sit down with Keith Scott, the main designer at Banshee, to hear what he has to say about their new Spitefire all-mountain trail machine.
Watch the video to learn more about the new Spitfire!
Also inside are new pictures of Banshee's Rampant, Amp, and Legend DH bikes!
Banshee's Spitfire is built for the rider who earns their turns, but for the express purpose of carving singletrack and finding the flow on the way back down. This is bike is for the downhiller who wants a bike for all day epics, or the XC rider who is looking to get more aggressive than their steep and twitchy cross country machine will let them.
The Spitfire uses Banshee's VF4 virtual pivot system to control it's 5" of travel. A tapered headtube up front lets you run the latest long travel single crown forks if you are looking for something a bit slacker. The head angle can be anywhere between 66 and 68 degrees depending on which fork you decide on and the geometry setting you choose at the forward shock mount. Underneath the bottom bracket shell you'll find ISCG tabs to mount up either a guide or HammerSchmidt system. Frame weight is 6.5 lbs.
