Agile. Playful. Fun.
The Heckler is the most agile e-bike on the market—one that sports equal parts capability and playfulness. It’s fun uphill, it’s fun downhill, and it rides more like the aggressive trail bike it was based on than whatever your notion of an e-bike may be.
Using Bronson–our all-around thrill seeker–as a starting point, we tuned the suspension kinematics, and integrated the drive unit to arrive at a bike that delivers the ultimate blend of pedal bike-like performance on the descents with hybrid human/electric powered ascending.
Heckler delivers best-in-class performance by pairing a legendary Santa Cruz CC carbon chassis with the proven Shimano electric drive system to expand your riding possibilities while amplifying the fun.
Full carbon frame, VPP suspension and pedal-assist merge to create a platform that feels light and agile yet with the power to make rare rides the norm. Discover what makes Heckler tick.
CC Carbon Frame
The full CC carbon frame (front and rear triangle) and battery cover is lightweight and bombproof; the geometry is perfect for all-round modern trail riding; and the 150mm-travel lower-link VPP design is the most refined suspension design on any e-MTB. Like every Santa Cruz, the Heckler is built for the rigors of true mountain biking. With quality pivot hardware, radial bearings (with lifetime replacement support), simple internal cabling and wiring, clean lines, design and build kits, and a lifetime warranty.
