When looking at electric hunt bikes suitable for off-roading, traversing hilly terrain or getting you quickly and efficiently to your hunting location, there are many factors to take into consideration. We often talk with customers about tire durability, rust proofing, aluminium alloy framing to handle the rugged nature of off-roading and hunt, wattage of the battery for power output at either 500w, 750w or 100w, battery size for extended milage, as well as the pros of mid-drive motors. 

But what about the size of the bike itself?  Regular or Step-Through frames. One of the best selling electric hunting bikes on the market that fits the profile of a rugged and robust off-road E-Bike is the BAKCOU Mule Electric Bike

The Mule was designed and engineered around the unparalleled power and performance of Bafangs ULTRA mid-drive motor with integrated torque sensor, packed with great suspension, gearing, and high grade aluminium allow framing make it a great choice amongst BAKCOU Mule Electric Mountain Bike and off-road electric hunt bikes options.

But when it comes to sizing, the BAKCOU Mule has the additional Step-Through option. 

The BAKCOU Mule Step-Through (ST) Electric Bike was built for those riders with a shorter leg length, or those that have difficulty getting on and off of a traditional fat-tire, eBike. The Mule ST is built exactly like the Mule with the exception of a lower top tube allowing for a shorter stand over height. This allows for greater ease in getting on and off of the bike.

If you are debating whether to look at a Step-Through electric bike vs a regular frame, a good rule of thumb for BAKCOU Mule is if you are less than 5'9" then check out the BAKCOU Mule Step-Through (ST).  If you are taller than 5'9", then the BAKCOU Mule is probably right for you. 

In addition, if you needed to lower the height further, you could elect 24" wheels on the Step-Through model (rather than 26" wheels), which would lower the height of the bike by another 2". 

Everyone of us is different and with the step-through vs reguar frame options, you have the flexibility to find the bike best suited to you!
