Nimble and poppy enough for Danny?

About the bike
The introduction of a Santa Cruz e-bike is a significant one and they’ve chosen a nimble 27.5 platform that is absolutely dialed, quiet and sturdy to withstand the antics of Danny Macaskill and other hopefuls.

What they’ve come up with is a bike based on the Bronson Platform, with 150mm rear and 160mm front travel rolling on 27.5 wheels. The other key attribute is the use of the Shimano STEPS E8000 motor and the 504 wh internal battery.

We’re not sure you’ll be able to descend and drop like Danny. But climbing and practicing will now be a whole lot easier with the Heckler.
