The Santa Cruz Men's Heckler CC R Mountain eBike '20 has a full carbon frame, VPP suspension, and pedal-assist technology merged to create something light and agile that amplifies the fun. It pedals well regardless of watts involved and its 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. 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 were considered with a mechanics sanity in mind! Creating an e-MTB demanded careful consideration. The Heckler's potential to lift riders up to new heights is exciting. Trailblazers like Greg Williams and Danny MacAskill weren't asking for a dumbed-down ride up. Or down. They wanted something to push their riding to new levels. And held maneuverability sacrosanct as the new tech was introduced. The Heckler's boundaries aren't defined by distance, laps, or time. The boundaries in your head that say, "Don't bother”, "Turn back", "Impossible." Smashing these boundaries is what got you hooked on riding in the first place. The Santa Cruz Men's Heckler CC R Mountain eBike '20 is not about taking things easy, it's about making things possible.
