The basic electric bike conversion kit we offer at Panda eBikes is the PANDA ECO. We also offer the PANDA PRO which is a slightly upgraded version of this kit, with some enhanced features.
The Panda ECO is best for you if you want the basic functionality of an eBike and don’t want to spend more than necessary. If you want a more professional conversion that is more like a premium eBike, and more advanced components that are easier to fit, then go for the Panda PRO…
The both have brush-less motor controllers with a high efficiency, meaning you’ll get the best range from your battery.
Both come with a display that can turn the system on/off, shows the battery level and pedal assist level (the Panda PRO has a more advanced display with more features, see below)
The motors are identical in each system (motor type varies on the power that you choose, 250W, 500W, 1000W).
Finally, both kits come with cut-off brakes and pedal assist sensors.
So – all in all, you’re unlikely to notice a difference in the basic performance of your eBike.
So what’s different?
The advanced LCD display in the Panda PRO system provides extra information during your ride like speed, distance and time. It also allows you to access the controller settings to customize the control to your needs, e.g. by altering the cut-off speed. It also has a back-light allowing night-time viewing.

Easy fit cables
Whereas the Panda ECO has basic cabling with connections to the controller that must all be made inside the waterproof controller box – the Panda PRO has a simple colour coded easy-fit waterproof cable harness making the conversion much simpler
In summary – if you want an economical conversion and are mostly worried about the basic functionality, then the Panda ECO is best for you. If you want a more professional conversion that is more like a premium eBike, and more advanced components that are easier to fit, then go for the Panda PRO.
