On and on and on and on... 

Danny MacAskill just doesn't stop talking about ebikes. He's infatuated with them. In fact, the only time he's not chewing someone's ear off about how good they are is when he's riding them. And when he's riding an ebike he rides and rides and rides. Which is partly why Santa Cruz made the newest Heckler able to go further, higher, faster and be funner.

The latest generation of the Heckler has a larger interchangeable battery (720wh up from 504wh), which allows riders to expand their own trail map - accessing previously unreachable trails, unlocking less-used trails and cramming more into less time.

The thing that sets Santa Cruz's ebikes apart from the pack is the on-trail manners of the bike. We sweat the carbon layup and frame design so it's tough enough to handle the sheer quantity of riding ebikes allow. There's no corners cut in the componentry so your only concern is not getting lost rather than being stuck with a mechanical. The geometry has been honed from a lot of testing and feedback in order to make the ride fun whether going up or down. And finally, the legendary VPP suspension has been tuned precisely for ebike use. 150mm rear travel (with 160mm travel fork up front) seems to be the sweet spot for a bike intended to tame big trails on big days, with slightly less anti-squat to give it glue-like traction on the climbs you'll be testing yourself on.

The only thing we've yet to figure out is how to get Danny into a 12-step ebike recovery program.

Design Details

Carbon frame options

Santa Cruz Heckler Electric Mountain Bike

Carbon CC frames use the very best materials and production processes available, while Carbon C frames offer the same great features while adding a little more weight to save a little $. Both versions are made in Santa Cruz's own factory, are just as strong and stiff as one another, and have a lifetime warranty.

Interchangeable 720wh battery

Santa Cruz Heckler Electric Mountain Bike

The battery is fully removable/replaceable which means carrying a spare for ultra range or charging the battery away from the bike is possible.

Shimano EP8 motor

Santa Cruz Heckler Electric Mountain Bike

The new Shimano EP8 motor is lighter, more powerful and more efficient. All this means it's even more capable of tackling longer, tougher rides.

Coil and water compatibility

Santa Cruz Heckler Electric Mountain Bike

The option to run large body shocks (like a coil) and still fit a water bottle in the front triangle.

Made to last many lifetimes

Santa Cruz Heckler Electric Mountain Bike

The legendary Santa Cruz fit, finish and quality construction put this into a league of its own. The frame, bearings and optional Reserve wheels come with a lifetime warranty and any service is easy to do with our Rider Support pledge.

Details matter

Santa Cruz Heckler Electric Mountain Bike

The details are completed by a neat mud flap to protect the rear shock plus tidy cable routing within the frame and swingarm, and rubberized DT protectors to shrug off strikes.

Geo

Santa Cruz Heckler Electric Mountain Bike

The latest Heckler gets longer reach and slacker headtube angle than previous generations. A 445mm rear center blends climbing traction and downhill composure.

Full size range from S to XXL

Santa Cruz Heckler Electric Mountain Bike

Both 29 and MX versions are available in M-XXL frame sizes. The Small frame comes with 27.5" wheels only.
