Longer days and faster climbs mean more mileage, more laps and more time pointed down hill. Our Heckler LT link applies the principals from our other popular links to create a more confident and composed ride. Increasing the progression to 35% from 27% helps keep the bike from blowing through it's travel despite the extra weight of an onboard motor and battery. Changing the leverage curve of the bike leads to less reliance on volume spacers and tokens to keep you up in the travel. Added progression means better traction through rough terrain as well as improved bottom out resistance for a bottomless feel on the bigger hits. More mid stroke support helps the bike maintain a more playful feel on jumps and side hits. The stock bottom bracket height is maintained and chain stays are lengthened by 5mm for a bit more stability when the trail speeds increase. The shock tunnel on the Heckler is pretty tight so this bike is only compatible with air shocks.
