We are very pleased to announce the raffle for 2021 MTBco Bikes of a Custom Built Banshee Titan valued at $ 10,000. Proceeds from the raffle will go directly to support and improve our local trails. A portion of the profits are donated to Elevation Outdoors.
Tickets are available for $ 10 for 1 or $ 25 for 3 and will go on sale between July 1, 2021 and August 12, 2021 until midnight. The winner will be drawn on August 13, 2021 at noon and contacted by MTBco. Tickets can be sold and purchased in British Columbia only.
Tickets are available HERE.
In 2021, when buying a new bike can be extremely difficult, if not impossible, MTBco has managed to do the impossible with enormous support from Smith Creek Cycle partnered with Banshee Bikes, We Are One Composites, One UP Components, Tannus, Sensus, Magura and Ride Wrap to create the ultimate Okanagan Trail / Enduro bike.
The Banshee Titan is an entirely new, no-compromise 29-inch with 155mm of travel, designed to tackle the toughest enduro days. Don’t be fooled by the fact that it doesn’t have huge back travel. It will climb and handle much better than bulky competition and dominate when pointed downhill.
The suspension is incredibly smooth on top thanks to an optimized leverage curve and a frictionless linkage to achieve maximum traction. As you ride faster, harder and the trail gets rougher, the progression and characteristics of the linkage and stiffness of the frame take on their true meaning with a tremendous amount of confidence-inspiring control.
Prepare to smile maniacally as you charge down technical, fast, steep, and fun descents. Are you brave enough to explore your personal limits, as the Titan will take you there and encourage you to go further and faster than you ever imagined.
If you have already purchased an MTBco 2021 subscription, thank you for your support. If not, please maintain trail support year round by renewing your MTBco membership here.

THE TITAN BANSHEE IN ACTION
MTBco hiked the trails of Gillard, along with Karl Heldt Media, Banshee racer Lynden Corley and a few local rippers, to show the Titan in action and highlight the work MTBco has supported in the central Okanagan.
MTBco would like to warmly thank Banshee Bikes and Smith Creek Cycle for making this possible. Thanks also to We Are One Composites, One UP Components, Tannus, Sensus, Magura and Ride Wrap for bringing the bike together.
Thanks to our production team: Smith Creek Cycle, Sovereign Cycle, TBS Bike Parts, Shred Shed, RedSand Creative and Karl Heldt Media, Banshee Rider – Lynden Corley, Nathan Dobson – Photos and Media, Andrew Jay – Photos and Media.
Mountain Bikers of the Central Okanagan (MTBco) is a trail organization that builds and maintains trails and advocates for the mountain biking community in Kelowna and the Central Okanagan. We are working with all levels of government, as well as other trail groups, to secure trail systems for the future. We also organize social events, group hikes and welcome days on the trails.
Elevation Outdoors is a Kelowna-based charity that has focused on removing obstacles to the outdoors since 2007. Our goal is to help young people find a passion for the outdoors through specially designed programs that focus on on mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, snowboarding and Suite. We provide all the equipment our program participants need to participate, transportation to and from the trailhead each day, and provide it free of charge to participants who meet our eligibility criteria. Since 2007, we’ve helped hundreds of young people get out, connect with mentors, and build brighter futures. With small groups and ratios of 2: 1 participants / volunteers, young people are able to form strong relationships and really develop their skills during a program. You can learn more about Elevation and our programs at www.elevationoutdoors.ca.
Support from the raffle will help us continue to expand our programming. Since the pandemic hit, the demand for our programs has never been greater. In response to this, and in an effort to continue to create greater diversity in the outdoors, we are working to develop a mountain biking program specifically for young women. Providing a safe and comfortable space for young women aged 12-18 to learn and experience the sport of mountain biking, we believe this will help participants learn and find a passion that will accompany them for life. We believe in the power of sport to change the direction of someone’s life, and with the support of MTBco we will be able to develop programming that will have a positive impact on our community for years to come!
