2020 Santa Cruz Heckler Bikes



The new Heckler is the first ebike from Santa Cruz, with Shimano battery and motor and Carbon CC frame.


The latest version of the Heckler is a new one for Santa Cruz - the first Heckler with VPP suspension, not to mention the first with a battery and motor!


Handling was the priority in designing the Heckler, with a lighter frame and battery keeping the bike agile and fun.  The brilliant VPP suspension has been tweaked for ebike and is as easy to maintain or replace bearings as the rest of the range.


With 150mm of rear wheel travel and 160mm of fork travel matched to 27.5" wheels, the Heckler is roughly comparable to the Bronson - just with that extra boost!
