Over the years since its introduction, the Heckler has undergone a steady evolution and made a lot of friends along the way. Not wanting to alienate any of those friends, we worked long and hard before pulling the trigger on the latest version of everyone's favorite workhorse.

We retained the long-legged, predictable handling, bumped the rear travel up slightly to 150mm, designed the chassis around a 140mm-travel fork (but able to handle 160mm), built it strong with a 15mm diameter pivot axle and gusseted tubing, but kept it light with a 6.4lb frame and shock weight. In human athletic terms, somewhere between marathon runners and wrestlers, you'd find the Heckler. A damn good rugby player. Even got a built-in bottle opener...
