The Prime V3.2 is designed to pedal all day long and still feel comfortable taking on fast, challenging terrain. It is playfully composed, confidence inspiring and has a fun, balanced ride characteristic. Perfect for days exploring new trails, or blasting your locals.
The ability to confidently navigate through the roughest terrain is because of the progressive KS2 linkage. The optimized weight distribution enables a faster, more fluid ride. Experience true cornering performance with perfect balance and fistfulls of traction while reducing fatigue.
The Prime V3.2 is ready to take your riding experience further with the ability to fit a longer dropper, tweaks to geometry and refinements throughout. The Prime really is a true “all mountain” bike!

Expedition Zeal - Full Review with Phantom and Titan comparisons. ‘The Prime is my favorite of the three Banshees I rode. In fact it’s my favorite bike ever. Period.’
The Loam Wolf - Full Review ‘The more I rode the Banshee Prime, the more I liked it and wanted to keep riding it. On my local flow trails to steeper technical trails at higher elevation, the Prime never seemed to feel out of place or overwhelmed. This is a bike that I could just ride and not have to think twice about technicalities.’
The Beta Tests - Beta MTB (be sure to read the comments for discussion from supportive and happy Banshee owners regarding shortfall in short term testing criteria. The comments as much as the video might give you an idea on if this bike is right for you.)
