The Bakcou (formerly BackCountry) MULE Mid Drive electric bicycle is built to pack like a mule with the suspension and gearing to get you there fast!  On a quick trail ride or a week in the backcountry, the Mule is a beast that can handle everything you throw at it.

The Mule was designed and engineered around the superior power and performance of the Bafang ULTRA mid-drive motor, with its game-changing torque and dual-speed sensors.

These highly sensitive sensors record data on crank torque, vehicle speed, and pedal rotation speed, ensuring precise and accurate control of the e-bike while achieving highest possible efficiency.

The intelligence of the Ultra Drive System puts the rider in complete control.

Despite the tremendous power output and maximum torque of more than 160 N m the motor operates in silence.

Frame Size Difference:

Stand over height and frame is the same for small or large. However,¬†the small frame Mule seat can be¬†lowered 1.5‚ÄĚ lower than the large.¬† We can also swap out the suspension seat post¬†to a non-suspension seat post which allows¬†the seat to¬†lower an additional 1.5‚ÄĚ.

Watch the beautiful Mule hunting ebike in action!

Fast, stealthy, Bakcou e-bikes in their element!

Advantages of Bakcou Fat Tire Electric Hunting Bikes


The focus of our research and development team, at Bakcou eBikes, was to design the most dependable, efficient, and  comfortable fat tire electric bikes available. 

Our e-bikes were designed to be electric bikes from the beginning, and not simply regular bikes, modified to function as ebikes.  The stresses and demands placed on an electric bike used to haul, not only the rider, but his gear and game, in and out of the back country, are much greater than those placed on a regular bike.  For this reason, we designed and manufactured our ebikes around the most important part of the bike, the drive train. 

Bakcou eBikes utilizes the latest, most technologically advanced motors and lithium ion batteries on the market.  Whether you’re riding  the powerful Mule to access remote areas, tackling the most aggressive terrain on the Storm, or flying back up the trail to grab the truck after a long drift boat ride on the Stalker, our dependable ebikes will make sure you get there and back.

2019 Bakcou Mule eBike

Just got back from an archery elk hunt and the bike met all my expectations. It made the hunt a lot less physically exerting and more enjoyable. While I didn't seal the deal on my elk, I had a great time trying and my Mule added to the fun.

Thanks for the great review Thomas! We're so glad you're having so much fun with the Mule :)
