Bakcou — Teri Child, Event Coordinator

Bakcou is an industry-leading company of elite, fat-tire electric bikes and scooters designed for bowhunters, military, first responders, and outdoor enthusiasts. Bakcou is committed to the design and manufacturing of the best electric bicycles, bicycle components, and related products on the market. The company is uncompromising in its materials, process of manufacturing, development of new products, and innovation of the highest quality.

“We are so excited to be attending the 2024 Shot Show,” said Bakcou Event Coordinator Teri Child. “SHOT Show is the best arena to establish and build relationships with industry leading companies. We love the positive energy and excitement surrounding SHOT Show and specifically the new Archery Business Pavilion. We look forward to a successful 2024 and many years to come.”

Not all eBikes are created equal, especially when it comes to battery capacity and quality. The Bakcou staff attending SHOT Show 2024 will be happy to explain what you should look for in a battery and how the company spares no expense providing hunters with the best eBike “gas tank” on the market. In addition, unlike many eBikes on the market with weak nylon gearing in the conversion motor, Bakcou models are engineered to deliver power and durability from all-metal gearing. Finally, another reason why Bakcou is considered the elite SUV of eBikes is its 14-speed internal gear hub, or Rohloff Speed Hub. The rear gearing is enclosed in a waterproof casing, protecting it from the hazards and conditions found on a backcountry hunt.

Stop by the Bakcou booth at SHOT Show 2024 to check out why the company’s eBikes are the best models for hunters. Booth #80721; 

Steambow — Gerald Missbach, CEO

Steambow is an Austrian manufacturer of high-end archery products. The company’s AR-6 Stinger II Tactical and Compact modular crossbows, as well as the Fenris magazine for compound bows, have revolutionized the archery world and allow shooters to achieve incredible accuracy with minimal training time.

Steambow is committed to making bows and crossbows more fun and usable to a wider audience. With that in mind, the company recently announced the launch of its 10-Shot Detachable Magazine Crossbow for shooters who want to take more shots with less reloading at the range.

Boasting a larger magazine approximately the size of a 30-round AR magazine that can accommodate 10 arrows, the hard-hitting 10-Shot Detachable Magazine Crossbow features a similar style to Steambow’s AR6 Stinger models, but with an improved pistol body, including a new butt stock, foregrip, string dampeners, and tuning trigger. It also offers multiple sight options for a customized shooting experience.

Shooters can choose between the 10-Shot Detachable Magazine Crossbow unit or a conversion kit that upgrades their existing AR6 Stinger II Tactical or Compact to the 10-arrow magazine. 

“The SHOT Show has always been a great show, not just for us but for the whole industry,” said Steambow CEO Gerald Missbach. “The new possibilities the Archery Business Pavilion now brings, especially the shooting lane, make the show an even bigger and greater event for us.” Shooting Lane #80126, also booth #72715 in Caesars Forum;
