Heckler C MX R E-Bike

Lapping our favorite downhill trails to all-day enduro rides, the Santa Cruz Heckler is our go-to choice when we are looking for a bike that can take us further while still being siper capable. The Heckler is a mid-travel e-Bike with slack and aggressive geometry, mixed wheels, and 150mm of VPP suspension. The Heckler recently saw some geometry improvements, making the chainstays longer, the head tube slacker, and the reach longer, all aiding in downhill and uphill performance. With a slack 64.8-degree head tube angle and a 76.7-degree seat tube angle in the high setting, the Heckler allows us to shred the downhills while keeping us in an efficient position when climbing. The Shimano EP8 motor has more power and is lighter than previous versions. Eco, Trail, and boost modes allow us to use the optimal power for our terrain, boosting us up those difficult climbs or conserving battery on the flats. A bigger 730Wh battery means we can extend our ride to the next peak without worrying about losing power or getting tired, and the battery is interchangeable, so we can take it out and plug in a fresh one.

The MX R build of the Santa Cruz Heckler is the entry-level build and offs quality components that get the job done and won't break the bank. This model of the Heckler is equipped with Santa Cruz's Carbon C frame for a lightweight and stiff frame. SRAM's NX Eagle drivetrain provides us with a 12-speed drivetrain that has a huge gear range and a proven reputation. Next, WTB ST i30 TCS 2.0 aluminum rims bring us a wheelset that is durable and ready to take us through the roughest trails without worry. Premium Maxxis tires provide reliable grip on the descents, and the rear DHRII tire features a Double Down casing for extra flat protection and support for e-Bikes. The RockShox Zeb or Lyrik, 160mm fork soaks up big hits and keep us under control on steep descents, while the RockShox Super Deluxe Select rear shock brings us ground-gripping traction, allowing us to descend the rowdiest trails confidently.

*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level.

Santa Cruz Knocks it Out of the Park

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

The Santa Cruz Hackler is a solid bike. If you are used to riding enduro style bikes, honestly you won't really notice the weight when riding, only when loading. It handles amazingly, jumps great, and has tremendous range. Unfortunately, Shimano saw fit to put a small, non-replaceable watch style battery in the power switch. If the bike sits for an extended period of time (say, during an extended period of storage in a warehouse during a lengthy downturn in the global bike industry), this battery will need to be replaced - inclusive of the entire switch! And since this is not a user serviceable item, the bike has to go to a shop. It would have been amazing had Shimano made this battery replaceable - and Backcountry chosen to check the health of said battery. I sit on the threshold of med/large, and went with the large as I was interested in the added stability for such a heavy bike. It's a long bike - it's a heavy bike, but it is surprisingly agile, and extremely fun. I hope Shimano does a running change and upgrades this switch to include a replaceable battery, at this point it's the only fault I can find with the bike.
