SANTA CRUZ HAS AN E-BIKE?! Vital Gear Show 25

Product / Technical

It's official. Santa Cruz Bicycles has made an e-bike. The Heckler name has been resurrected and applied to the 27.5-inch-wheeled, 150mm-travel eMTB from the Northern California brand. Weights on the new Heckler ebike vary from the low 46- to high 47-pound range. Four models are available with prices starting at $7,399 for the Heckler CCR and reaching $12,599 for the Heckler CC XX1 AXS RSV model. Using a Shimano motor and 500wh integrated battery, the Heckler breaks the e-bike barrier for Santa Cruz.
