From Drawings to Reality: Introducing the 2013 Banshee Spitfire V2

View as: Slideshow | One Page
A few weeks ago we brought you to Banshee's factory floor to witness the making of a new frame. Today we're excited to officially launch the Spitfire V2. Building off an already incredible platform, this bike is sure to impress. Join us as we catch up with Banshee boys Jon Hadfield and Dennis Beare to check out the new ride.

    I got to demo one of these yesterday. SUPER impressed. If I didn't have my Trance, I'd give this one a hard look...

    I REALLY want one to replace my current Spitfire, which quite honestly is a super performing bike! I have mine setup with a 160mm fork and some beefy tires/wheels. It can ride any type of trail very easily and pedals very well.

    BUT, I find it really hard (on top of being a poor student) to throw down $1000 for a warranty replacement. Damage to the frame that is caused by a misfunctioning bushing system.

    Are the slideshows acting funny for anyone else or is it just my computer? Audio starts playing automatically but nothing else loads?
