Keith on the Rampant
I designed the Rampant not only to be nimble and fun, but also fast. This bike just shreds, simple as that. Hand on heart, this is the most fun bike I have ever ridden. You can throw it around and give it serious abuse, and it will lap it up and beg you to go faster.The Rampant has 4" of very progressive VF4B travel, which translates into a bike that can take big hits, but pedals almost like a hardtail. The frame is stiff and strong, with crazy low standover, and a tight accurate feel as a result of the aggressive geometry. I've ridden this bike down the hardest trails on Whistler Mountain, like Goats Gully and In Deep, where it was (in all honesty) a handful, but a BLAST to ride! It can take that kind of abuse, and handle the terrain, you just have to work hard and ride harder! However, the Rampant is at home on fast tight flowy trails or jumps, and kills it on 4X and pumptracks.Call it what you want... slopestyle, 4x, aggressive trail or jump bike, the Rampant is great for all of them. Personally, I call it a short travel playbike. Every time I jump on my Rampant it gets me stoked on riding, and what is biking if you aren't having fun??
See your Dealer for custom build options. Currently Banshee at this time doesn't offer a build kit spec for the Rampant.
