The Bullit is designed for tackling the steepest and deepest of trails in both directions. Imagine the kinds of rooty, rocky, horror fests usually reserved for our biggest hitting bikes like the Nomad and Megatower. Then imagine what lies beyond that.
Where the Heckler’s priority is agility and playful handling, the Bullit takes a more no limits approach. 170mm travel, a 38mm fork and DoubleDown tires reflect the smashability of this platform. This is a bike for riders who seek V10 level terrain that’s out of range of any chairlift or shuttle road.
It was actually the Santa Cruz Syndicate team’s success on their mixed wheel DH race bikes that made us consider the same format for the Bullit. We learned from them that mixed wheels provide the confidence at speed of a 29er with the more spritely handling characteristics and maneuverability of a 27.5-inch rear wheel. And for an e-bike, it also means we can dictate exactly how long (or short) we want to make the chainstays to balance climbing traction and handling. The added butt clearance on super steep stuff is just another bonus.

Big mountain riding is a nomadic existence. Meeting friends in far flung car parks. Pinpointing trails you’re not sure are even rideable. Sending the ones you know are. Shiny new bling gets battered, shattered and bruised. That’s life. That’s how it should be.
That’s why the nomad exists.
Probably the most abused bike in our line up, every Nomad has a story to tell. But each Nomad we’ve made keeps coming back for more. It’s not Stockholm Syndrome, it’s called sealed bearings in all pivots, lower link grease port, shuttle guards and free bearing replacements. Why scrap a frame when a simple bearing service can make one last a lifetime? That’s our stance on sustainability at least, and it’s why our carbon fibre doesn’t just mean lighter, it means tough as hell, lifetime warranty and crash replacement support.
There’s no time for puzzling when on a road trip either. That’s why we chose 27.5″ wheels as the go-to for the wildest variety of riding styles and rider sizes. When peeling your bike out of the van at a new spot, your only question should be “is this a full-face or a half lid kinda ride?” The 64° head angle and 77° seat angle puts you in the sweet spot when winching up to the top of the big drop in. Meanwhile proportional chainstay lengths mean handling is never compromised, regardless of frame size.
And when we say big travel, we’re not talking about your Transits odometer. We’re talking 170mm of 38mm diameter fork and 170mm of VPP rear suspension compatible with both coil and air shocks. The details are completed by a neat mud flap to protect the rear shock plus tidy cable routing within the frame and swingarm and rubberised DT protectors to shrug off strikes.
So van-lifers unite. The Nomad is the kind of bike you need never worry about all summer long. Sorry we can’t say the same for the locked public washrooms and parking tickets
