Why We Like The Heckler MX Carbon CC S e-Bike
Elevate your riding and take on challenging new trails with the Heckler MX e-MTB. Whether you're looking to maximize the fun factor when you have limited time to ride, or you want to explore previously inaccessible mountain terrain, the Heckler MX opens up a whole new style of riding for those willing to embrace it. Using the original Heckler e-MTB as a starting point, Santa Cruz gives the bike a 29in front wheel for mowing over obstacles, and a 27.5in rear wheel to keep the handling precise. The bike sees 140mm of VPP rear travel, a 140mm travel fork, progressive trail geometry, and a SRAM Eagle drivetrain with a wide range that helps you conquer the toughest climbs without running out of gears on fast descents. This isn't some sluggish e-bike, it's an aggressive trail bike that pairs Santa Cruz's renowned carbon chassis with Shimano's proven electric drive system to help you ride further and faster.
The new Shimano EP800 motor is compact and lightweight, but with a powerful 250-watt output and increased torque over the previous motor, you'll enjoy a serious boost to your pedaling capacity so you to clear the steepest climbs without tiring out too quickly. There are three modes to choose from: Eco, Trail, and Boost. Eco delivers the least amount of power and consequently the longest range. It's ideal for longer rides or when you're making a conscious effort to save power. Trail is the most usable mode for normal trail riding, progressively ramping up the power as you increase your pedaling cadence. Boost mode is quite powerful, providing considerable pedal-assistance for speeds up to 20mph. An intuitive computer display on the handlebar lets you easily switch between these modes, and shows you the current mode as well as your current speed.
