The renowned high-end mountain bike manufacturer, Santa Cruz Bicycles, based in California, USA, is partnering with the official distributor in Colombia, Bikexperts, to introduce the new Heckler SL. This electric mountain bike is made of carbon fiber and features top-level components.
The Heckler SL is a modern and lightweight version of the original Heckler. It comes with a carbon frame available in two versions: the C, which is more affordable but slightly heavier, and the CC, which uses more carbon to reduce the weight of the bike.
One of the notable features of the Santa Cruz Heckler SL is its compact and lightweight Fazua Ride 60 motor, which offers more power compared to other lightweight eMTBs. According to the manufacturer, the Heckler SL provides the same range as their Full Power models with a 630 Wh battery, thanks to its reduced weight and improved motor energy management.
Another unique aspect of the Heckler SL is its mixed wheel setup, with a 27.5″ wheel at the rear and a 29″ wheel at the front. This configuration allows for better traction and stability in the front, a lower center of gravity, and enhanced maneuverability in the rear.
The Heckler SL range consists of five different versions, all available in five sizes and two colors: silver or purple.
Bikexperts, the official distributor in Colombia, offers a wide selection of products for mountain biking enthusiasts, including the powerful Bullit and the new Heckler SL.
