Banshee recognized that the 29ers on the
market are geared towards cross country riding, and there wasn’t anything for the
rider that wants more travel and slacker geometry. Banshee also recognized that
current 29ers are flexy, due to the longer chainstays and the manufacturer
trying to save a few grams here and there.
The engineers at Banshee set out to
create a frameset that was completely different from what is currently offered.
They started with using 7005 Alloy, which is 10% stronger and has 50% higher
fatigue strength than 6000 Series Alloy. The Prime has superior lateral
stiffness due to the internally ribbed stays and short stiff links. As you
pedal hard up a climb, power through corners, and sprint on the straight-away
you’ll notice how much of a difference the lateral stiffness makes. Banshee
will admit that the Prime is not the lightest frameset on the market. With a
target weight of 7.5lbs (without the shock, size medium) the Prime is on the
heavy side of 29er frames. However, the Prime was built to last more than one
season. Strength, stiffness, and efficiency are the key factors the Prime was
To ensure the best possible ride, Banshee
didn’t cut any corners. They paired the Prime frame with the new Fox Float CTD
with Trail Adjust rear shock. Whether you are climbing a hill or flying down
the face of the mountain your rear shock can be quickly adjusted to make your
ride efficient and comfortable.
