There are a number of significant updates and refinements that have been made to the 2016 Banshee Legend.

  • Most significantly the legend is now optimised to use 650b wheels to help carry speed better through rough sections. To achieve this with optimal performance the whole rear suspension linkage has been redesigned to reduce anti-squat and keep the chainstay at optimal length for DH racing while also tweaking the suspension kinematics to improve performance with 650b wheels
  • The geometry of the frames has been updates to supply what Banshee's riders have asked for. They have dropped the small size, lengthened the medium and large top tube lengths (while also lowering the centre of gravity and standover), and added a new XL size for longer front centre to allow taller riders to get into a great attack position.
  • The head angle has been slackened to 63.0 degrees, the BB has been lowered 2mm, the travel has increased to 205mm, and rear tyre clearance for 650b wheels has been improved over what Banshee have had before with 26" to help on really muddy tracks.
  • A new tube set not only increases strength and front triangle torsional stiffness by 5%, but it also creates a cleaner merge with the shock basement forgings, and improves compatibility with the tube for integrated frame bumpers from ODI.
  • The linkage kinematics have been improved to work more optimally with modern DH race cassette ranges while slightly reducing pedal kickback.
  • The legend forgings have all been refined to shed weight and improve aesthetics, the frame has tubes for ODI fork bumpers, and now has a 44/56 tapered head tube to make it compatible with tapered steerer triple clamp forks running a zero stack headset, while the whole centre of gravity of the frame has been lowered to make it the best in its class by a margin.

All performance characteristics have been painstakingly and carefully scrutinised to make this a single purpose world cup level race bike.

  • Tuned virtual pivot linkage design includes an anti-sag component under heavy pedal acceleration and a minimal amount of tuned-in squat so under hard braking it helps balance the bike as the fork starts to dive thus letting the bike go into corners level.
  • All CNC'd parts are forged first for optimal strength to weight ratio.
  • Hydroformed 7005 butted aluminium tubes putting the strength were it needs to be. All double offset welded, aligned multiple times between heat treatments before assembling, with 100% final quality checks by  Jay.
  • Internally ribbed seat and chainstay for optimal DH race stiffness.
  • The super stiff fully forged shock cage equalises loading where the highest forces from the rear shock and links take place.
