Santa Cruz Heckler 7

The Heckler goes big17th JUN 2013

In its seventh incarnation, the Heckler continues to prove you can still order from the all-mountain menu like it's Happy Hour.

Now with the same super awesome geometry* as the acclaimed Bronson, plus 150mm travel and 27.5" wheels to match, there's been no half measures in the new Heckler's development.

Legions of Heckler owners testify to the durability of the design, marching on through season after season while other bikes at this price point simply rattle to pieces. The aluminum frame is now stiffer and lighter than its predecessor, with a single collet axle pivot, 142mm rear end and a direct mount rear derailleur hanger keeping things tight and tidy.

So as the Heckler prepares to celebrate its 18th birthday in Club Tropicana** colors, you can rest assured this single pivot party will keep on going long after the others have gone home.

*Super awesome geometry is not a Santa Cruz trademark.
**Drinks probably not free, so black is also available.
