Want a Bakcou Trailer with your Scout? You will need to purchase a new rear axle for your bike. Visit the Robert Axle Project, and search for the appropriate axle below:
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 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:

The range of your electric bike refers to the distance you can ride on a single charge. Assessing the range of an electric bike can be difficult, as it varies from person to person. All electric bikes are advertised as having a particular range, but these advertised ranges are usually inaccurate and some can be quite exaggerated. In extreme cases, advertised ranges could even be four times higher than the realistic range. It's nearly impossible for electric bike range claims to be completely accurate because so many factors depend on the individual rider and the riding conditions.
Factors to consider when estimating range include:
While most people want to have the most powerful bike motor they can afford, it's important to note that motor power only impacts how fast you can pull off and how well you can get up hills. Motor power does not necessarily impact how far you can go. When it comes to electric bike range, the most important variable to consider is the battery capacity.
Battery capacity is usually measured in Watt-hours (Wh), where Watt-hours= amp-hours x volts. The Watt-hours calculation is important because it determines the range of your electric bike, or how far you can go.
1. Bike A has a 24V - 20Ah battery: 24V x 20Ah = 480Wh
2. Bike B has a 48V - 10Ah battery: 48V x10Ah = 480Wh
3. Bike C has a 24V - 6Ah battery: 24V x 6Ah = 144Wh
Bikes A and B have a similar amount of energy. If Bike A and Bike B have equal motors and riders, they will perform in a very similar fashion. The bike with the higher voltage battery will accelerate faster and climb better — but that will be at the expense of some of that energy. On the other hand, Bike C will not take you nearly as far.
Simply put, if you want an eBike that accelerates fast, climbs well, and can travel long distances on a single charge, then you should purchase one with a battery that has high voltage and high amp-hours. A battery with high voltage and low amp-hours will shorten the distance you can travel on a single charge.
It's important to also consider the issue of range with regard to the type of motor you are buying. For example, there is a good argument that mid-drive motors get a better range than hub drive motors because they work synergistically with the gears.
NOTE: When you are looking at adverts for electric bikes, you may find some advertisements where the battery capacity is simply stated in amp-hours. This is an insufficient way to advertise range, as it does not include the voltage and does not accurately reflect the true energy capacity of the battery. If a bike is advertised with a 36V battery and a capacity of 9 amp-hours, then the true capacity of the battery is 324 watt-hours (9x36=324).
