We are super excited about the release of the new Mule G2 by Bakcou eBikes (formerly BackCountry eBikes). We know that it will be an absolute game-changer in the full-suspension, fat-tire, electric mountain bike class.

Bakcou Mule Description

Bakcou Ebikes spent countless hours in research, design, and testing of this new 2020 Mule model. It is designed for the hunter/back country enthusiast, looking for that "Cadillac" ride without the need to pull/pack heavy gear.

The Bakcou eBike Mule was designed and engineered around the unparalleled power and performance of the Bafang Ultra 1000W mid-drive motor, with its game-changing torque and dual-speed sensors.

These highly sensitive sensors record data on crank torque, vehicle speed, and pedal rotation speed, ensuring precise control of the bike while achieving the highest possible efficiency. The Ultra motor can be programmed

In the following video, Dave from Bakcou provides a complete overview of the Strom.

Bafang Ultra Mid-Drive Motor

The Bafang Ultra mid-drive motor constantly samples relevant information at a frequency of up to 80k Hz via a torque sensor and two speed sensors, which are all highly sensitive.

The resulting data on crank torque, vehicle speed and the speed of rotation of the pedals is made available to the controller, ensuring precise control of the vehicle while achieving the highest possible efficiency.


The Max Drive System puts the rider in complete control. In spite of a generous power output and a maximum torque of more than 160 N.m, the motor operates in virtual silence. The modular motor design and integrated controller make disassembly easier and improve service responsiveness.

    A True Beast

    Unbelievable value for the money! I've got over 300 miles on the Mule in a variety of terrain over the last 6 weeks or so. Ultra reliable and built extremely well for the price. This is a must have for the trail rider or backcountry hunter looking for an ebike!

    Really Good Ebikes

    Thanks Chuck!


    Ebikes Are The Best - Mule Love

    I was always a traditional bike guy, but I decided to try the Bakcou Mule and I’m sure glad I did. I am happy to say that I will never go back to a traditional bike again!

    Powerful All-Terrain Electric Mountain Bike

    I have been a fisherman all my life, and get out to the lake at least once a week. I decided that it was time to start riding out there, for exercise and to save some money on gas, but the trail has some steep hills and rough surfaces, so I knew I wanted a very high quality fat tire mountain bike. The Mule has performed very well, even during wet conditions.

    Good Electric Vehicle for Outdoorsmen and Ranchers

    I have been a rancher and hunter for the last 35 years, and mostly use my truck and ATVs to get around my property. But now with ebikes becoming so popular, I did some research and decided that I should get one. I now use this ebike every day, saving a lot on fuel costs. The fat tires give it great staying power in difficult terrain, and the hauling capacity is impressive.

    Great Exercise & Longer Rides

    I thought getting an electric bike would make me lazy but it has actually stepped up my biking game. I can go almost everywhere with my electric mountain bike, and my adventures often take me to more remote places, so I get a lot of exercise even when using the motor.
