The North Shore freeride bike company was seeking a UK distributor at Interbike, and has now landed one. It's Freeborn UK.

Banshee gets UK distributor

Freeborn UK will be the exclusive importer and distributor of Banshee Bikes in the UK.

Banshee started life as an in-house bike brand for a Vancouver IBD but word got out and demand grew.

Banshee frames – such as the 45-pound, eight-inches-of-travel Scream or the hardtail Morphine – are super-strong, with a ten-year warranty programme. The frames are made from Easton RAD tubes. They come equipped with either a "Gucci spec" or a "Journeyman spec." The Gucci spec includes FSA cromo cranks, Hayes disc brakes and XT drivetrain.
