The Heckler 29 Carbon XT e-Bike is our weapon of choice for taming high-mileage rides and exploring far from home thanks to its ultra-capable design. This Heckler build features 29in wheels front and rear for unmatched rollover abilities that make scooting up, down, and around techy features a cinch, which really comes in handy in places like Moab's slickrock terrain. Santa Cruz pairs 150mm of their latest VPP suspension travel with a slack 64. 5-degree head tube angle for a stable descending feel that's still maneuverable at slower speeds or in tighter terrain. We love the updated 720Wh battery because it lets us double our mileage in the same amount of ride time as our fully-mechanical bikes, plus this system provides significantly more range than the previous model. The Eco, Trail, and Boost pedal-assist modes let us easily manage our battery consumption and speed. The revised frame design now offers flip-chip geometry adjustment to let us fine-tune the bike to different terrain types, plus the frame is now coil shock compatible. This particular build benefits from the Carbon C frame construction from Santa Cruz, which offers a light, stiff, and reactive feel that's a little more pocket-friendly than its Carbon CC counterpart. Shimano's XT groupset handles shifting duties, while a 160mm Fox Performance Elite 36 Fork lets us dissect technical rock rolls with ease. ARC 30 rims from Race Face are laced to DT Swiss 350 hubs for a vibration-damping, durable, and quick-engaging trail experience. *Due to unprecedented demand in the global supply chain and the bike industry over the last 18 months, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be minor. If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
