Let The Heckling Begin 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 pedaling 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. - RockShox Yari RC 160mm fork - RockShox Super Deluxe Select shock - SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain - SRAM MTH/WTB ST i29 wheels with Maxxis Minion tires - Race Face Aeffect dropper post
The Heckler is about expanding your own trail map—accessing previously unreachable trails, unlocking less-used trails, and doing so independently. The full carbon frame and interchangeable 504Wh battery keep the weight down compared to bikes with larger batteries, but it's fast and easy to put in a fresh battery for even bigger, longer days. The mixed-wheel option gives riders the confidence of a 29-inch wheel up front for traction and roll-over when you're caught off guard by technical features. But retaining the 27.5 rear wheel allowed us to keep the moderate chainstay length of the Heckler (445mm), which provides a snappy and easy-to-handle bike on tight, demanding trails. We did this without compromising on the standard Heckler's geometry, so the bike's character is still very lithe and accurate. The new Shimano EP8 motor is lighter than the previous unit (380g), has more power (85Nm versus 75Nm), smaller volume (-10%) for greater ground clearance, less drag (50%), more heat resistant, and tuned to give more power in Trail mode. All this means it's even more capable of tackling longer, tougher rides. 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 mechanic's sanity in mind!
Ride further, ride harder…and feel like a superhero while you're at it. Pivot didn't set out to simply build an eMTB, they set out to create a top-notch enduro/trail bike that breaks barriers and opens new doors to your riding. Say "Hello" to the Pivot Shuttle—the lightest, most capable, and rowdiest eMTB in the world. The Shuttle is a thoroughly modern mountain bike featuring progressive geometry, ultra-capable suspension, and a state-of-the-art carbon-fiber chassis. Add a class-leading power supply with the Shimano E-8000, integrated in a thoroughly innovative fashion, and this bike is ready for epic expeditions. The Shuttle pedals exceptionally well, carves up the tightest corners, and absolutely rips technical descents. Pivot spent years perfecting the Shuttle’s geometry. The result is a chassis that rides exactly like any of their world-class enduro bikes, yet also sets a new standard for lightweight in the eMTB world. The Shuttle is long and slack up front, and short out back, with a low center of gravity. The end result? The Shuttle manages to be surprisingly nimble in tight conditions, is supremely confident on fast, chunky descents, and can scale ridiculously steep climbs with surefooted calm. When designing the Shuttle, Pivot realized you can’t just slap a motor on a bike and call it a day. Adding an electric motor to the mix places new demands on bikes and components. That’s why they beefed up the Shuttle’s chassis and linkages, tweaked the geometry, and worked with Fox to adjust the suspension. They also collaborated with DT Swiss to create a light-yet-bomber wheelset (the EB1550) that’s been strengthened to withstand motor torque and which features a Super Boost Plus 157 rear hub that increases stiffness by 30 percent. Finally, they partnered with Maxxis on the design of the Silk-Shield tire casings, which give the Shuttle big, durable, traction-loving tires without adding unnecessary (and buzz-killing) rotational weight. Every part matters. On the Shuttle, every part delivers.
