Banshee are excited to announce the signing of UK rider, Matt Jones, one of the UK’s most progressive slopestyle riders. Coming from the humble village of Woburn in the UK, Matt grew up on dirt jumps and trails, which led him to where he is now - an internationally established FMB World Tour Athlete with multiple competition wins.

Matt on his weapon of choice
It's been a busy first month for Matt on board his new Amp bike, already notching up second place at Whitestyle 2016, first place at the Farm Jam in New Zealand and last weekend, landing a second place at the Air to the Throne comp at the London Bike Show.

bigquotesI'm beyond excited to be working with Banshee this year. To be affiliated with a brand that I grew up around and is so widely recognised is a dream come true. The bikes suit me perfectly which reflects in the epic start to 2016 I've been having! - Matt Jones

Flat spin on the way to the win

bigquotesBanshee is delighted to sponsor Matt Jones this year. Matt is exactly the type of progressive and passionate rider that Banshee likes to work with. His skill on the bike is phenomenal, but he is also dedicated to building jumps and sharing his passion to help evolve our sport. We can't wait to have our minds blown by what he has planned for 2016. - Keith Scott, Banshee Bikes

bigquotesI've grown up with Matt riding our local sandy dirt jumps, they allowed us all to progress and develop as riders. Matt has grown from strength to strength over the last few years and is establishing himself as the man to beat. He constantly pushes himself and isn't prepared to settle for second place. A true champion in the making. - Pat Campbell-Jenner, Banshee Bikes UK brand manager

 I have an amp and it's the best dj I've ever ridden. It's light and stiff and makes me feel like a better rider than I actually am lol. Stoked to see Matt doing well so early in the year. Keep sending it dude!

 Perhaps it is time for a new version of the Rampant? That was a damn fine frame, except for the peanut brittle BB and lower pivot welds...anyone have a front tri for a large Rampant?
