When the Spitfire was first released, the media thought we were crazy to have a short travel trail bike with such aggressive, slack and low geometry. Turns out, we were just leading the way. With the 2017 Spitfire we continue this tradition of cutting-edge performance from a frame that is well balanced, stiff, efficient and confidence inspiring. The Spitfire really is the ultimate trail bike. Founded on Banshee’s KS Link suspension platform, the Spitfire features an insanely supple design as it completely eliminates pivot resistance and nearly all DU bushing rotation.
To achieve this, Banshee’s KS Link provides the rider better traction through its ability to react faster to sudden changes in the terrain, resulting in superior small bump compliance for an overall smoother ride. The short one-piece forged linkages boosts the Spitfire’s overall stiffness and responsiveness by lowering the centre of gravity, while its fully sealed, oversized bearings and low pivot loads keep maintenance virtually non-existent.
