Santa Cruz Heckler SL X0 AXS RSV I Carbon CC Review

Bavarian engine craftsmanship meets American style icon. That's a pretty accurate one-liner for the Heckler SL X0 AXS RSV.
Even steep ramps are surprisingly easy to climb with the Fazua motor. With its boost function, which provides 450 watts of support for a short period of time, the Fazua Ride 60 reduces the gap between light and classic full-power motors. At the moment, hardly any other light motor offers such a good combination of natural support, dynamic power delivery and capability. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Heckler SL X0 AXS RSV , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Heckler SL X0 AXS RSV I Carbon CC in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (11000) .

The very good chassis with 160 mm travel in the front and 150 mm rear hub also proves to have a lot of resilience even on rougher terrain. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure. Fortunately, this is not the case with the Heckler SL X0 AXS RSV. With their four pistons and large brake rotors the SRAM brake brakes good. Taking a holistic approach also includes looking at the gearing and components. The components are of good qualtiy and offer no reason for criticism here. The handling of the bike is pleasantly balanced due to the moderate geometry. This allows you to intuitively control the bike over the trails. The low bottom bracket height will likely be a sticking point for trail riders, as it negatively affects handling. Due to the short chainstays , when climbing steep sections, it requires active weight shifting to prevent the front wheel from lifting. Overall, the Santa Cruz developers have done a great job with a god geometry.
