Banshee launches the Enigma, an alloy hardtail designed for versatility
Banshee has just released the Enigma, the mischievous younger brother of the highly acclaimed Paradox.
Featuring many of the same great details, but in a more compact package designed around 27.5in and mule versions, the Enigma is designed as a fun do-it-all hardtail.
The Enigma can be configured as a medium-travel 27.5 (140-160mm 27.5″ fork) or a short-travel mule (100-130mm 29″ fork). The versatility of this frame really sets it apart, from all day epics to local jumps and pumptrack, the Enigma can cover it all.
Constructed from 7005 T6 alloy using custom hydroformed tubing for torsional stiffness where you want it, and FEA-optimized 3D forged yokes and dropouts that deliver noticeable vertical compliance on hard hits and shock absorption. vibration, the Enigma offers an almost steely ride feel in a lighter package with greater lateral stiffness.
