Santacruz releases its first VTTAE with this new Heckler which is only available in CC frame, the most high-end fiber, in order to gain maximum weight and have maximum dynamism.
Combined with the compact and light Shimano E8000 motor and assisted by a 500W / h battery. The result is convincing, since the Heckler weighs just 21 kg in its highest-end version, 21.62 kg in the “entry-level” version.
The suspension obviously remains faithful to the VPP system, designed with the shock absorber passing low into the frame through an arch and connected to the lower link. The anti squat has been revised, for more support and improved pedaling traction.
Motor and battery are very well integrated into the frame and we find the super level of Santa Cruz finish. The bike is available in two colors (yellow or black and as a reminder, the Reserve 30 V2 carbon wheels and frames are guaranteed for life.
On the geometry side, Santa Cruz was strongly inspired by the geometry of the Bronson. The bases are a little longer (445 mm against 430 mm), as is the wheelbase (1211 mm in M against 1191 mm), but these values remain in the very good average for an E-Bike, in order to keep the maneuverability and stability. We also note on these points that the housing descends as low as that of the Bronson (in Low setting), while the hunting angle is 65.5 ° (as on the Bronson in High setting).
