Race ready and up for any amount of bikepark action, the Banshee Darkside will push you to the very limits of your riding abilities. Rocking 180 mm of smooth, confidence inspiring travel you can hit the biggest drops, huge doubles and the most demanding step ups with absolute certainty that this frame can take the knocks. Tight rear stays will whip you round the corners like a pro and the Darksides long front to centre means total stability at high speeds or high in the air. Strap on your favourite 180-200mm triple clamps, without worrying about frame damage thanks to built in bumpers and point the Darkside down the most challenging trails, you won't be disappointed. If you need to go slacker than the race ready 64 degree head angle? No problems, the head tube will accept anglesets for the truly laid back. You can even choose to go old school with 26inch wheels or keep it 2016 with 650bs. Offering the best of both worlds for riders swtiching between DH racing and massive hucks, the Banshee Darkside will build up to a freerider that can also take you to the top of the podium.

Putting together a bike from the frame up means making some big choices, component wise. Let Biketart's expert team help you pick out the best kit to build the perfect Banshee Darkside for you.
