Which Bike is Right for Me?
MULE OR STORM
When trying to decide which bike is right for you, it really comes down to application. If you plan to hit the trail with a loaded down rear pannier rack, while pulling a trailer full of gear for a week of hunting or adventure in the back country, then we recommend our hard-tail Mule. The Mule is built to pack! By design, this heavy duty 6061 aluminum alloy hard tail frame will maintain its integrity even when placed under heavy loads. While the air suspension GT MRK front forks and suspension seat post create a comfortable ride they cannot replace the high end full suspension ride of the Storm.
If your plans are to hunt rough, rugged, gnarly terrain, with a pack on your back, and you are less interested in packing heavy gear on your bike, or pulling weighted down trailers, then the full suspension Storm is right for you. The full suspension Storm delivers a Cadillac ride while traversing even the most rugged terrain. However, weighing down a full-suspension bike with heavy gear can cause the rear end to squat, (even when the rear shock is locked out) changing the way it rides and performs. While the Storm utilizes the same, bullet-proof Bafang Ultra mid-drive motor, with it's heavy duty metal gearing and diesel engine like construction, we recommend it more for day trip hunting when a smooth ride is top priority.
