Banshee Phantom V3.2 - The king of“downcountry”.
When the first prototype Phantom first hit the trails back in 2013 there really wasn’t a category for this kind of hard charging short travel 29er. “Downcountry” hadn’t been coined yet, and the 29er haters thought a bike with these numbers could only be for XC, and not any fun. Well, the Phantom helped establish a whole new classification without even meaning to. It was simply a bike that we enjoyed riding ourselves. The Phantom V3.2 still spearheads the fact that short travel 29er’s can be a blast to ride.
The playful Phantom V3.2 sports the KS2 linkage with 115mm of travel. Incredible trail feel with the perfect amount of feedback that rewards you for nailing the perfect line, yet lets you flirt with the limits for when you push things. The Phantom V3.2 really provides that amazing flow state synergy between the rider and trail that we all dream about.
