Review: Banshee Titan - A Friendly Beast of a Bike
@Grimdonut: ignorance lol....... Says the guy who comes from the country who incorrectly spells a core element of the periodic table..... ALUMINIUM. News flash, the word has 2 'i'. If you understood the root of the name you'd spell and say it correctly. Not complicated, just ignorant. :)

Review: Banshee Titan - A Friendly Beast of a Bike
Yes I've ridden with a coil. Bottom line..... OMG. The bike rides like nothing else with a coil. Sensitivity comes alive. Coil allows it to use more of its travel more often due to linear spring rate. Game changer

Review: Banshee Titan - A Friendly Beast of a Bike
It's 155mm and rides deep like a 170mm. Don't let number ruin your life. Ride a bike before you knock it based on 3 digits on a page.

Banshee Announces Updated Prime, Phantom & Spitfire Frames
I've heard that the new frames have tested twice as strong as the Version 2 frames. Apparently where other bike companies provide 1 frame per EN strength test, Banshee did all 3 tests with one frame - passed with flying colours. It's all in the Shock Cage apprently! Also, warranty period is now 4 years if the bike is registered with Banshee.

Review: Industry Nine's More Affordable 101 Enduro S Wheelset
More Affordable - like a BMW is more affordable than a Porsche.

Banshee Overhauls Rune & Releases New Titan Enduro Bike
@azawad: The KS link was not a modified DW link. It's known as a short link four bar (SLFB). DW link is SLFB as is VPP and a number of others - essentially 2 links joining the front triangle to the rear triangle. KS2 is a variation on this. The lower link still exists but the upper link has been replaced by a rocker. The rocker acts as the upper link whilst also driving the shock. A line taken from where the rocker joins the rear triangle to the frame will show you where the upper link used to be. Making the KS2 just a variation of the KS Link. Having already ridden the titan, I can happily say it pedals better than the Prime V2 and the Spitfire. I'll let Banshee elaborate more if needed.

Banshee Overhauls Rune & Releases New Titan Enduro Bike
Ripmo is 3.75kg with shock (Topaz), Titan is 3.95kg with shock (Float X2). Difference is 150g. Put a topaz on the titan and it would be 3.8kg - 50g difference. Titan is 7 series alloy - stronger than 6 series. The suspension system is proven KS has been around for years, now they have simply reworked it and made better. Just like DW link has been over the years and VPP....etc A lot of the price difference is in the shock and included headset. Plus more advanced manufacturing methods that are more expensive. Also, you get more suspension travel and a longer stroke shock - meaning the shock is not working as hard and the suspension is more manageable. With Banshee, you get a high-end alloy frame. With Ibis, you get a catalogue filler in a range of carbon frames.
