We are super excited about the release of the new Storm 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 Storm G2 Description

Bakcou Ebikes spent countless hours in research, design, and testing of this new 2020 Storm model. It will no doubt rival the sales of the record-breaking Bakcou Ebikes Mule. However, it is not intended to compete with the trailer-pulling, pannier bag-toting, hardtail Mule. Instead, the 1000W Full-Suspension Storm e-MTB is designed for the hunter/backcountry enthusiast, looking for that "Cadillac" ride without the need to pull/pack heavy gear.

If it's gnarly, rugged, steep, or technical, look no further than the full-suspension Storm G2 e-MTB from Bakcou eBikes. The Storm G2 will chew up those rocky climbs and steep descents with ease, while still allowing you to pull that trailer full of gear to and from your tree stand, blind, or favorite hunting spot.

The Storm G2 is the most capable full-suspension, fat-tire electric bike on the market. It is built to traverse rough, rugged terrain while maintaining a Cadillac ride. The Storm G2 comes stock with an upgraded 17.5Ah extended distance battery, Tektro HD-E750 quad piston hydraulic brakes w/ auto motor inhibitors, RockShox rear suspension, 120mm GTmrk air front fork, and new gear ratio. Essentially, the Storm G2 is the Mule with suspension and a few elite upgrades! 

The Bakcou Storm G2 electric mountain bike was designed and engineered around the unparalleled power and performance of the Bafang Ultra mid-drive motor, with its game-changing torque and dual-speed sensors. 

In this video, Dave from Bakcou provides you with a complete overview of the Bakcou Storm model.

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 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.

Electric Bike Report Reviews Bakcou Storm

The independent ebike reviewer Electric Bike Report provides a detailed review of the Bakcou Storm. They test road the Storm at the 2021 Big Gear Show in Park City. 

They report, in part, that the Storm is "an e-bike designed to go where few others can, the Bakcou Storm is a full-suspension electric fat bike with the soul of a 4×4 and the guts of an ultra-powerful eMTB."
