Bakcou eBikes (formerly BackCountry eBikes) has been in business since early 2015. Customer service is at the center of their business model, as it is ours. Bakcou is committed to the design and manufacturing of the best electric mountain bikes on the market today, using only the highest quality premium bicycle components.
*Their love for the backcountry, and the desire to access these remote areas with minimal disturbance to wildlife and their habitat, through quiet and non-pollutant means.
*Their goal to design and build the most durable and efficient, yet affordable, electric bikes on the market.
*To build ebikes for sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts that want the same thing we do, which is to climb higher, go farther and explore more without adding more stress to the environment.
Bakcou eBikes' top selling electric mountain bikes - such as the Mule and Storm - are built around the Bafang Ultra mid-drive motor. The Ultra motor is not only the most durable and powerful Bafang mid-drive motor, but it is the only 1000W mid-drive motor with a torque sensor.
The Bafang Ultra torque sensor makes riding an ebike feel very natural. Without it, your motor gives you a predetermined amount of power when you push on the pedals. This can be extremely dangerous when riding technical terrain and even more so, while riding technical terrain downhill.
You need to be in complete control of your ebike or you are likely to end up on the ground. Similar to purchasing a car, your primary consideration in buying an ebike should be the motor.
Moreover, Bakcou eBikes also use the very best lithium ion batteries, carefully selected, to last longer and go farther. They use high end air suspension forks, components, and gearing built to climb without sacrificing top-end speed.
