The Bakcou Storm 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 Storm 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 full suspension frame, and the top of the line internal gear Rohloff hub to create the best-in-class Storm Jäger.
If it’s gnarly, rugged, steep, or technical then look no further than the full-suspension Storm G2. 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 full-suspension Storm G2 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! For this reason, the rear suspension of the Storm G2 had to be just as heavy-duty, in order to handle all of this torque and power without causing the frame to flex under intense loads.
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 and now there is a full-suspension bike to handle it.
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.
