The Power and Precision of the Rohloff Speed Hub on Bakcou's eBikes

Bakcou is renowned for its commitment to innovation and quality, and the Rohloff Speed Hub on our Jäger eBikes is a testament to that dedication. Let's dive into the world of this German-engineered marvel and discover why it's a game-changer for eBiking enthusiasts.

The Essence of the Rohloff Speed Hub

The name "Jäger," which translates to "hunter" in German, is a nod to the German-engineered Rohloff hub that forms the core of the Jäger models. Unlike traditional Bikes that rely on a cassette and derailleur system, the Rohloff Speed Hub is an internal gear hub. This 14-speed marvel is a masterclass in engineering, boasting a vast gear ratio that empowers riders to achieve high speeds and climb challenging terrains with ease.

Why Choose the Rohloff Speed Hub?

  • Maintenance-Free Riding: One of the standout features of the Rohloff Speed Hub is its low maintenance requirement. With most of its mechanisms housed internally, it offers riders peace of mind, especially during backcountry adventures.
  • Smooth Shifting: The hub ensures each gear is 5.26% larger than the previous one, resulting in a smooth 13.6% increment between each gear. The even spacing allows for seamless transitions, eliminating the clunky shifts often experienced with traditional systems.
  • Quick Gear Changes: Traditional bikes require riders to shift one gear at a time. In contrast, the Rohloff Speed Hub lets you swiftly move from one gear to another. Imagine cruising at 15 mph and suddenly facing an incline; with just a flick of the wrist, you can shift from the 12th gear directly to the 2nd or 3rd, maintaining your momentum effortlessly.

    The Bakcou Advantage

    Currently, Bakcou offers three Jäger models equipped with the Rohloff Speed Hub: the Mule Jäger, the Storm Jäger, and the Scout Jäger. While the Mule Jäger is a hardtail, eliminating the need for a chain tensioner, the Scout and Storm Jägers, with rear suspension, use a chain tensioner to maintain optimal chain tension during rides.

    A Worthwhile Investment

    There's nothing on the market that compares to Bakcou's Jäger models. The combination of durability, dependability, and minimal maintenance makes the Rohloff Speed Hub-equipped bikes a worthy investment. Many of our long-term customers can attest to the unparalleled performance of their Jäger models, even after years of use.
