I wrote this in another thread (spoiler section for 271) but thought the theory could stand alone and used for discussion

Well I know it isnt stated exactly in the manga, but I believe that Zangetsu's power is high velocity propulsation. Ichigo states that Getsuga is when Zangetsu takes his own spiritual energy and releases at a high velocity in a more concentrated form that energy which is the attack. Now I have thought about it and the only way that his bankai would make sense if it is simply a more powerfull form of the original concept of the sword (which is what all Bankai are, a much more powerful and controled form of the original shikai power and form.), now the only way it makes sense that, if Zangetsu's only shikai power is to shoot out Ichigo's spirit energy concentrated and at high velocity, that his bankai works by concentrating his own reiatsu and spirit parictles and propelling them at high velocities, which is why he gains incredible speed. Getsuga Tenshou is stronger then a shikai getsuga because naturally with more reiatsu from zangetsu , and with zangetsu's overall ability to fire off reiatsu increased, the getsuga would be more stronger.


The fact that he is moving at high speeds though does not mean he becomes physically any stronger, I.E. able to swing his sword any harder. Grimmjaw after blocking Ichigo's initial shikai attack , and then his bankai attacks, that the only thing his bankai gave him was speed. Speed and increased spiritual pressure/concentration is all he gains from bankai.

Bankai's dont all necassarily increase in sheer overall ability and power. They are just a much more powerful version of the initial concept. Byakuya's shikai is to turn his sword into many tiny blades that he controls, his bankai is great many hundreds of times more tiny blades, the rest his is own personal doing as with concentrating those blades.
