Santa Cruz Bullit MX could be the world's burliest trail e-bike. Imagine the gnar-taming capabilities of the big-hitting Nomad and Megatower boosted with Shimano's new EP8 STEPS motor, and you start to see a bike that's not only off-the-charts capability-wise, but in terms of how far and wide you can go with it, as well. Bullit's high-capacity 630wh battery and more refined, more powerful—not to mention lighter and smaller—EP8 motor combine with a smasher build to turn those once-a-year epics into your regular rides and let you unlock new, long rides you never thought possible. Designed for tackling the steepest and deepest of trails, Bullit's 170mm-travel fork with 38mm stanchions, DoubleDown tires, and coil shock options beg for the abuse of rooty, rocky horror fests usually reserved for the aforementioned big-hitting pedal bikes. Where the Heckler puts a premium on agility and playful handling, the Bullit comes to brawl with a no-limits attitude. Like many of our bikes, the inspiration for this one initially came from the Syndicate—our works-level DH squad. After champion puzzler and downhill demon, Loris Vergier, talked us into a mixed-wheel V10 DH sled, it was really just a matter of time before we brought that World Cup mindset to a broader use case. And, like with Loris' race bike, we've found it provides the confidence-at-speed of a 29er with the more spritely handling characteristics and maneuverability of a 27.5 rear end. Unlike Loris' V10, however, this big-hitting mixed bike goes uphill, as well. - 85 Nm Motor - 630 Wh Battery - 170mm Travel - 29/27.5 (MX) Wheels
Our bikes have always been about amplifying fun, so our goal for the Heckler MX was to make something light and agile that can help you on-site blind terrain. A mixed-wheel bike gives the confidence of a 29-inch wheel up front for traction and roll-over when you're caught off guard by technical features. The 27.5-inch 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 light and accurate. The Heckler is about expanding your own trail map—accessing previously unreachable trails, unlocking less-used trails and doing so independently. Whether tackling rides that are guarded by monstrous climbs, or cramming more into less time, it's about rarer rides becoming the norm for you. The interchangeable 500wh battery keeps 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 new Shimano EP8 motor is lighter than E8000 drive unit (380g), has more power (85Nm versus 70Nm), smaller volume (-10%) for greater ground clearance, less drag (50%), more heat resistant, and is tuned to give more power in Trail mode. All this means it's even more capable of tackling longer, tougher rides. We use the full Shimano STEPS battery and motor system again because it means assured reliability and global aftermarket service.

Built from a light yet tough aluminum frame, this all-mountain ripper features our much-lauded Level Link suspension design, which isolates chain forces from trail inputs.
