Santa Cruz Heckler Carbon CC XX1 AXS RSV E-Bike

In 1996 the Santa Cruz Heckler was created as a rude interruption to mountain bike designs of the time. Its solid, full suspension build and aggressive swagger proved that a well-proportioned trail bike could elevate rider's on-trail experiences. Today the Electric Santa Cruz Heckler carries that entire attitude forward into a new era. A full carbon frame, VPP suspension and pedal-assist technology have merged to create something light and agile that amplifies the fun. Like all Santa Cruz bikes, the Heckler pedals well regardless of watts involved. The lower link VPP approach is tweaked to deliver slightly lower anti-squat versus a Bronson. This adds a touch more support and traction over rough stuff when pedaling seated, a major advantage of having a Shimano motor on your side. And like every Santa Cruz bike, the Heckler is built for the rigors of true mountain biking. Shimano electronics were chosen for their refinement and reliability, while quality pivot hardware, easily replaceable radial bearings and no-nonsense internal cabling are used with mechanics sanity in mind! Creating an e-MTB demanded careful consideration. The Heckler's boundaries aren't defined by distance, laps, or time. The Heckler's not about taking things easy, it's about making things possible.
 The 150mm travel lower-link VPP design marries the needs for downhill kicks with efficient pedaling prowess. Santa Cruz tuned it to have lower anti-squat (to sag) than their regular pedal bikes to allow you to keep pedaling (while seated) where normally you'd start standing. The more active suspension while pedaling creates better traction on technical climbs. But once you start mobbing down the trail the lower-link VPP system provides more mid-stroke and bottom out support than most other designs. 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.
 The 250-watt Shimano Steps E-8000 motor is compact and light (6.34lbs/2.88kg) and the E-8035 battery is Shimano's latest integrated battery. It provides 500 watt-hours of power, is lightweight (6.4lbs/2.9kg), is fully removable/replaceable using just a keyless 4mm hex latch and is protected by a Santa Cruz CC carbon battery cover.
