The Bakcou Mule Jäger is unlike other fat tire electric mountain bikes. Not only does it feature a 1000W (nominal output) mid-drive motor, it has an internally-geared hub (IGH) drivetrain.
Jäger, the German word for hunter, pays homage to the German-engineered Rohloff hub that this version of our Mule is built around. The Rohloff Speed Hub is an internal gear hub, meaning this bike doesn't have a traditional cassette and derailleur system. This 14-speed hub is a feat of engineering, the huge gear ratio allows for high speeds and the ability to climb like a beast.
Internal gear hubs require less maintenance than traditional derailleur systems. Because the majority of the mechanisms are housed, you have peace of mind when you are deep in the backcountry.
We combined the incredible performance of an Ultra motor, with a rigid frame for absolute peace of mind when traveling in the backcountry. The top-of-the-line internal gear Rohloff hub adds reliability to one of the best in its class, Mule Jäger.
If it’s gnarly, rugged, steep, or technical then look no further than the Mule. This bike 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 that tree stand, blind or favorite hunting spot.
The Mule was designed and engineered around the unparalleled power and performance of Bafang's Ultra mid-drive motor. The Ultra motor is widely recognized as the “diesel engine” of mid-drive motors!
The all-metal, heavy-duty gearing, of the Ultra motor, combined with the intelligence of an integrated torque sensor, make the Ultra motor the most capable, durable, and efficient motor on the planet.
The Ultra motor is also referred to as a “smart motor”. The speed, cadence, shift, brake, and torque sensors provide continuous feedback from the rider to the motor. This allows the motor to deliver exactly what you ask. What you get, is a very natural feeling ride, even while providing a tremendous amount of torque and power output.
