Their best-selling electric bike, the Bakcou Mule is an electric fat bike equipped with an ultra-powerful mid-drive motor designed to take you and some gear into backcoutry areas discreetly and efficiently.
Bakcou loaned Electric Bike Report a Mule to test ride during the Big Gear Show in Park City, Utah this August. We were limited by time and little access to e-bike friendly off-road terrain, but I was thoroughly impressed with the Mule’s super powerful motor, stable handling and thoughtful component package.
Bakcou is one of several e-bike companies with roots in hunting. Though they’re building on those roots and are now designing their bikes as sort of an all-terrain electric utility vehicle, the first Bakcou bikes were built to replace the noisy and foul-smelling ATVs or side-by-sides hunters previously used to access backcountry locations. Those motorize vehicles disturbed the wildlife, so e-bikes became a great substitute. Now, Bakcou’s e-bikes are built for anyone trying to access difficult to reach terrain.
