Why the Heckler?

Danny MacAskill can't help but sing the praises of e-bike adventures, and when he's out riding, he just keeps going. That's one reason why we've taken the Heckler to new heights, distances, and speeds. With its hefty interchangeable 720Wh battery, this e-bike opens up trails that were once out of reach, unlocks less-traveled paths, and lets you squeeze more riding into less time. The Heckler boasts a substantial 150mm of rear travel (paired with a 160mm travel fork up front) using VPP™ suspension, meticulously fine-tuned to conquer expansive trails on thrilling descents and grip the terrain like glue during climbs. It offers versatility with the option of mixed or dual 29-inch wheel sizes and a comprehensive range of frame sizes, from small to XXL.

  1. Travel: 160mm [F] 150mm [R]
  2. Wheel size: 29" & MX
  3. Drive Unit: Shimano EP801
  4. Battery: 720wh

Technical Details

The new Shimano EP8 motor is lighter, more powerful and more efficient. All this means it's even more capable of tackling longer, tougher rides.

Frame Sizing

The sizing chart is a great place to start when picking your next bike but everyone will fit a bike a bit differently. Your torso, arm, and leg lengths all play into what size of bike you may need. Plus, there's your own personal preference.

We always recommend swinging by the shop and taking the bike that you're looking for a spin to see how it feels. If you're unable to come by, looking at the geometry of your current bike and comparing it is a good place to start. If you have any further questions, our customer service team is there to help.

Please note, the Small frame comes with 27.5" wheels only.

The Heckler MX is available in sizes medium - extra extra large (M-XXL).
