“I just got my hands on the new Santa Cruz Bicycles Heckler e-mtb and took it for a wee adventure at home in Scotland.”
Just hoping Danny is up to date on his tetanus shots after taking the new Santa Cruz Heckler E-Bike ($7399 USD) on a test ride through the rusted-out remnants of Scottish island. Pricey for a bike, but at least you know it can take a punch after Danny puts it through its paces:
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 were considered with a mechanics sanity in mind!
Creating an e-MTB demanded careful consideration. For us, the Heckler’s potential to loft riders up to new heights is what gets us most excited. 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 our head that say, “Don’t bother”, “Turn back”, “Impossible.” Smashing these boundaries is what got us hooked on riding in the first place. Heckler’s not about taking things easy, it’s about making things possible. MORE INFO HERE
