The Banshee Amp was designed to be a light, tight, and strong dirt jump bike. Banshee had their sponsored dirt jump riders test several version of the AMP to dial in the geometry. They kept the chainstays short and the front of the bike low by using an integrated headset, which makes the bike feel really flickable in the air, and is easy to throw into corners and pump through sections. Banshee used internally ribbed seat and chainstays to keep the frame stiff and predictable. By removing material where stresses were low, the frame stayed super light weight. The Banshee Amp has a high strength to weight ratio.
