Did you hear that Bakcou just released its first fat-tire electric bike made for trail riding? The all-new Scout is a GAME CHANGER.
On a recent ride out on Antelope Island, the Scout proved itself as an elite, sport riding fat-tire electric bike. From the suspension and geometry to the power and everything in between, it combines to give a best-in-class sport riding fat-tire eBike.
The Scout takes the very best of our top-selling Storm and our Carbon Alpha, an eMTB. This results in a beast of a fat-tire eBike built to take you to the top. And then it helps you rip down the mountain in style.
The unique geometry and top-of-the-line rear suspension set the Scout apart from Bakcou's other full-suspension fat-tire electric bikes. These two aspects combined make this bike the perfect crossover sport trail bike. In addition, the increased traction of the fat tires gives the Scout the ability to handle mountain terrain with ease.
Unlike Bakcou’s other fat-tire bikes, which feature interchangeable batteries, the Scout features an integrated 17.5ah battery and improved cable housing to amplify your ride. As another upgrade from its Storm counterpart, the Scout has an incredible 11-speed gear ratio in the Sram NX cassette. The larger gear ratio gives the Scout more capability to take you wherever your trail leads.
The Scout was designed and engineered around the unparalleled power and performance of Bafang’s ULTRA mid-drive motor. The Ultra motor is often recognized as the 'diesel engine' of fat-tire electric bike mid-drive motors! For this reason, the rear suspension of the Scout had to be just as heavy-duty to handle the torque and power without causing the frame to flex under intense loads.
The Ultra motor is considered a "smart" motor. This motor has speed, cadence, shift, brake, and torque sensors that work simultaneously to provide continuous feedback from the rider to the motor. As a result, this allows the motor to deliver what you ask of it. In return, riders get a very natural feeling ride.
As an avid mountain biker, I can honestly say that the Scout electric bike lives up to its hype. This bike is powerful, capable, and, most of all, fun to ride. If you’ve been looking for a fat-tire electric bike for trail riding and don’t necessarily need the “extras” found on the Bakcou Storm or Mule, then look no further. The all-new Bakcou Scout, a sport-bike built for the mountains, will help take your ride to the next level.
