Introducing Bakcou’s first full suspension fat tire electric bike built for sport riding. The Scout takes the very best of our best-selling Storm and the Carbon Alpha to give you a beast of a fat tire electric bike built to take you to the top and then help you rip down the mountain in style.
The Scout has a unique geometry and top-of-the line suspension that sets it apart and makes it the perfect cross-over sport trail bike. Likewise, the increased traction of the fat-tires gives the Scout the ability to handle mountain terrain with ease.
The Scout features an integrated 17.5ah or 21ah battery and improved cable housing to amplify your ride. This bike has an incredible 11-speed gear ratio in the Sram NX cassette. As a result, the Scout can take you wherever your trail leads.
The full-suspension Scout was designed and engineered around the unparalleled power and performance of Bafang’s ULTRA mid-drive motor. Without a doubt, the Ultra motor is 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.
Undeniably, 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 fat tire electric bike motor on the planet. Finally, there is a full-suspension fat tire electric bike to handle it.
Furthermore, the Ultra motor is considered a smart motor. The speed, cadence, shift, brake, and torque sensors work simultaneously to provide continuous feedback from the rider to the motor. As a result, this allows the motor to deliver exactly what you ask. What you get is a very natural feeling ride, even with a tremendous amount of torque and power output.
Take your riding to the next level with this all-new fat tire electric bike built for the mountains. Be one of the first to ride the all-new Bakcou Scout today!
The Scout is currently not compatible with Bakcou eBike trailers. To make the Scout compatible, you will need to purchase a new rear axle. New axles for the Scout can be found on www.RobertAxleProject.com and you will need one of the following axles:
- For Single Wheel Trailers (Hunting Cargo Trailer): Part #BOB108 + #BIN001
- For Two Wheel Trailers (Folding Cargo Trailer & Folding Deer Trailer): Part #KID208
- Motor: Because you can toggle between 750W and 1,000 continuous watts (with a max power output of 1500W), this smart torque sensing fat tire electric bike motor, powered by Bafang, is capable of falling under all 3 Classifications of electric bike laws. How is that possible in a fat tire electric bike? For a video tutorial – click here.
