    The focus of our research and development team, atBakcou 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.

    BakcoueBikes 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.

    Go up to 20 mph, and thus rapidly increasing aerodynamic loads, and 220 watts is needed—more than most non-athletes can sustain. Riding up a mild 10 percent grade at just faster than a walking pace takes 150 watts—enough to have most riders breathing and sweating heavily.

    How long will a 48v 20ah battery last? ›

    They typically last 2-4 years. They are also our lightest batteries - at half the weight of lead-acid batteries, they store in a rack-top battery bag which attaches to any bike rack using velcro straps.

    How long does a 48v lithium battery last? ›

    The typical estimated life of a Lithium-Ion battery is about two to three years or 300 to 500 charge cycles, whichever occurs first.

    How long will a 48v 40ah battery last? ›

    It depends on the amperage, or load, of the motor. At 40ah, if your motor is drawing 10 amps, you will get 4 hours. If your motor is drawing 80 amps, you'll get 1/2 hour.

    How long will a 48v 14ah battery last? ›

    Lithium Ion battery as an example: 48V x 14 Ah = 672 watt-hours (Wh), which garners you an expected range of between 25-45 miles on a single charge.

    How far can a 48V electric bike go? ›

    Juiced electric bikes have a riding range between 40-100 miles depending on a variety of factors including battery size, average speed, terrain, rider weight, and more. With a smaller 48V or 36V battery, typical range will only be 15-35 miles per charge.

    When should I charge my 48V ebike battery? ›

    For the most part, you don't need to let your electric bike battery discharge completely. Rather try to charge the battery when there is between 30 percent and 60 percent of the capacity remaining. Some battery experts do, however, suggest an occasional full discharge, perhaps, once every 30 to 40 charges.

    Which battery is best for electric bike? ›

    Cell Chemistry: Lithium-ion (li-ion) batteries are the best option for e-bikes. Although lead-acid batteries are significantly cheaper, they're three times as heavy as their li-ion equivalents. Li-ion has several variants of cell chemistry.

    Should lithium batteries be stored fully charged? ›

    Nickel and lithium-ion batteries should be stored at around 40% state of charge. Lithium-ion batteries might become unstable if not stored at their proper levels.

    Is it OK to leave a lithium-ion battery on the charger? ›

    Today, we want to answer a common question we get asked, 'Is it ok to leave a lithium ion battery on the charger'?

    How many Ah do I need for ebike? ›

    The benchmark standard of battery in the electric bike industry is a 10 amp hour battery. With a battery like that, you can go roughly 20 -40 miles on a single charge. You might say to yourself, “20-40 miles, that's a really broad range but why is that such a broad spectrum.”

    How do I know my ebike battery capacity? ›

    An e-bike battery is measured by its voltage (V) and ampere-hours (Ah) rating. To calculate the Wh of an e-bike battery, we simply multiply V and Ah to get Wh. E.g., a 50V 15 Ah battery will have a capacity of 750 Wh (50 x 15 = 750). A 30 V 20 Ah battery will have a capacity of 600 Wh (30 x 20 = 600).

    How far will an electric bike go without pedaling? ›

    And generally, with those though, you're limited to no more than 20 miles an hour with the full throttle. So with the pedal assist, you can go up to 28 with the full throttle, you can not go more than 20 miles an hour on an e-bike without peddling at all.

    Can you ride an ebike without the battery? ›

    The simple answer is yes. An e-bike will operate the same as a standard bicycle when not using the motor, whether by choice or because of a flat battery. We've reviewed a lot of e-bikes, and we can tell you that riding without the power will impact your ride. Let's take a look at how it changes things.
