Banshee Phantom V3 - The original down country, short travel 29er.
When the Phantom hit the trails in 2015, 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. The Phantom V3 proves that 29er’s can definitely be fun, and the short travel 29er shred sled is hear to stay.
The Phantom V3 now sports the KS2 linkage as well as 115mm of travel. Light and nimble with incredible trail feel, and just the perfect amount of feedback. Forgiving enough for when you push things a bit further or for when the trail pushes back. An absolute blast to ride wherever the trail may lead!
