Santa Cruz Heckler CC X01 RSV – E-Bike FullyWith the Heckler, the Californian high-end brand Santa Cruz is starting for the first time electrified - and the bike shines from the very first meters. The E-Mountainbike with absolute top components, such as SRAM's SRAMs X01 Eagle drivetrain, is powered by Shimano's most potent engine of the 8000 series. With the stylishly integrated 504 Wh battery in the exclusive carbon frame, you can even reach distant trails. The RSV model is equipped with the extremely stable and almost indestructible carbon wheels "Reserve" from Santa Cruz - experience real performance!
The Santa Cruz Heckler CC X01 RSV in detail
In 1996 the Heckler was created as a rude interruption to mountain bike designs of the time. Its solid, full suspension build and aggressive swagger proved that a well-proportioned trail bike could elevate rider’s on-trail experiences. Today’s Heckler carries all that attitude forward into a new era.
A full carbon frame, VPP suspension and pedal-assist technology have merged to create something light and agile that amplifies the fun. Like all Santa Cruz bikes, the Heckler pedals well regardless of watts involved. The lower link VPP approach is tweaked to deliver slightly lower anti-squat versus a Bronson. This adds a touch more support and traction over rough stuff when pedalling seated - a major advantage of having a Shimano motor on your side.
And like every Santa Cruz bike, the Heckler is built for the rigors of true mountain biking. Shimano electronics were chosen for their refinement and reliability, while quality pivot hardware, easily replaceable radial bearings and no-nonsense internal cabling were considered with a mechanics sanity in mind! Creating an e-MTB demanded careful consideration. For us, the Heckler’s potential to loft riders up to new heights is what gets us most excited. Trailblazers like Greg Williams and Danny MacAskill weren’t asking for a dumbed-down ride up. Or down. They wanted something to push their riding to new levels. And held maneuverability sacrosanct as the new tech was introduced.
The Heckler’s boundaries aren’t defined by distance, laps, or time. The boundaries in our head that say, “Don’t bother”, “Turn back”, “Impossible.” Smashing these boundaries is what got us hooked on riding in the first place. Heckler’s not about taking things easy, it’s about making things possible.

Santa Cruz CC Carbon Frame
The full CC carbon frame of Heckler (front and rear triangle) and battery cover is lightweight and bombproof; the geometry is perfect for all-round modern trail riding; and the 150mm-travel lower-link VPP design is the most refined suspension design on any e-MTB.
Santa Cruz don’t just use carbon to build bikes because it looks cool and everyone is doing it. They pioneer advanced materials and production methods to build the most durable and high-performance bicycles because it’s the way to ensure that riders can just enjoy riding their bike. Their experience with carbon production allows them to build bikes that are extremely reliable.
They design, test and prototype their carbon technology in Santa Cruz, CA. The Santa Cruz carbon lab gives them the capacity to research carbon layup optimization that they can apply to their production frames, and research and test new manufacturing processes and techniques. Their production bikes are strong as hell, and they feel they have a good handle on their toolbox of materials, but having the carbon facility in the same building as the engineers allows them to push their understanding forward, and take advantage of emerging materials technology.
The Santa Cruz frames are manufactured in their exclusive factory (Skybox). They founded this manufacturing facility themselves because they wanted to be able to control how their designs were produced, to ensure quality control, and to make sure the advancements their design remain proprietary to them (they’re not being selfish, it just sucks when someone peers over your shoulder to get the answer you’ve worked hard to figure out). What’s more, if something needs improving, they have the capacity and capability to change it, before it gets into your hands.Santa Cruz Virtual Pivot Point (VPP®) Suspension Design
They’ve been using VPP® suspension since 2001. Rather than contracting a series of kooky inventors to try to build ever more complex and wack-a-doo suspension designs or proprietary shocks so the Marketing department has something to talk about, they’ve stuck with what is an extremely versatile and high-performance mechanism. VPP® is designed to work with the best available technology from suspension manufacturers that will be supported long-term. It doesn’t require novelty shocks and hardware that offers dubious long-term support.
The 150mm travel lower-link VPP design marries the needs for downhill kicks with efficient pedalling prowess. They tuned it to have lower anti-squat (to sag) than their regular pedal bikes to allow you to keep pedaling (while seated) where normally you’d start standing. The more active suspension while pedaling creates better traction on technical climbs. But once you start mobbing down the trail the lower-link VPP system provides more mid-stroke and bottom out support than most other designs.
Santa Cruz Reserve Carbon Wheels
Whether it's a sunset lap with friends or a race run against the clock, a broken wheel ruins any ride. Santa Cruz set strength and impact resistance as their highest priority, but strength doesn't have to mean uncomfortably stiff. Their wheels are compliant enough to avoid that harsh "wooden" ride that gives some carbon rims a bad name offroad. They only make offroad bikes at Santa Cruz, so they have the privilege of being able to focus purely on the mountain bike experience. Everything from the thickness of rim beads to external spoke hole reinforcements comes purely from their experience of knowing what riders need at every level—from international racing to your local trails.
