All cables of the EBS Plug & Drive are equipped with waterproof plug-in connectors - plug-in and done. The connector cables' length is dialled-in to fit all typical conversions. For all major cables we have extension segments in stock. The installation of a motor does not take longer than changing an inner tube. You simply switch the old wheel for a new one with motor. Then quickly attach the display to the handlebar and the system is ready to go.
Display and control panel are attached to the handlebar, for you to have all information in front of you and to have full control over your system. The clearly laid out and high-contrast LCD screen displays the battery's remaining capacity and current speed. With only three buttons you control all functions of the e-drive. You can conveniently switch the system on and off from the handlebar and set it to one of five levels of support.
The new technology enables an even finer transition between levels. The motor can supply its power in an even more controlled way. With these five levels of support you can finely modulate the motor's power. That way you always have the choice between a fast or rather relaxed riding style.
Set the motor to your liking and make riding even more fun!
The ride experience is just as pleasant as the operation. The fast response and the smoothly starting motor provide a quick start and a natural handling. The thumb throttle included in the Plug & Drive Conversion Kit also offers a start-assist up to 6 kph (4mph). The thumb throttle allows you to control your starting speed even more precisely. It is ideal for fast starts from a traffic light and also as a push-assist on steep ramps and inclines. The maximum speed to which the system will assist you is 25 kph (16mph). Of course, you can go faster than 25 kph using your own power.
There is no need for a special brake activated kill switch due to the motor's short coastdown time: As soon as you stop pedalling,the motor and support stop after 0.3 seconds. Yet, if you prefer to have a brake activated kill switch you can easily retrofit one any time.

The motor of the EBS Plug & Drive 250W Pedelec Conversion Kit
Bafang SWXH motor for front and rear wheel
For the EBS Plug & Drive conversion kit Ebike Solutions exclusively uses well-proven, latest generation 250 Watt Bafang gear motors. This type of motor is extremely reliable and when well maintained has a longevity of more than 25,000 km (15,500mls). This has been confirmed by our own experience as well as customer feedback.
Despite its exceptional performance, this brushless motor is not much bigger than a freewheel and has a low weight of only 2.9kg (6.4lbs). These beneficial properties are possible due to its sophisticated construction: Encased in its housing is a planetary gear that saves unnecessary material and provides the motor with good climbing abilities. The smooth-running freewheel enables you to ride with low effort even when the motor is switched off because the motor rotates easily in the direction of travel. Due to a built in disc brake mount the EBS Plug & Drive conversion kit is compatible to rim brakes as well as disc brakes. Thanks to a fast-decoupling device the wheel can easily be separated from the system to enable an uncomplicated tyre repair.
Bafang CST 250W rear wheel motor with freewheel cassette
The Bafang 250W motor now also is available as cassette motor. Due to the integrated cassette there is no need for a screw-on type freewheel. Your advantage: You can keep using your existing freewheel. The modern cassette system offers a great range of available gear ratios. By keeping the cassette that belongs to your shifting system you also retain the shifting precision you are used to which is far above that of any aftermarket screw-on freewheel. Like the Bafang motor for screw-on freewheels it has a fast decoupling system. Thanks to this device the wheel can easily be separated from the system to enable an uncomplicated tyre repair. The cassette motor features a well-known 6-hole-pattern brake disc mount.
The Integrated Pedelec Control System (IPS)
The Integrated Pedelec Control System (IPS) is only available from Ebike Solutions and consists of display, cadence sensor and controller. We specially tuned all components to work flawlessly with each other. A quick view of the IPS's advantages:
- Power management via controller offers a well-balanced riding experience.
- Available options: power throttle for start-assist
- Display upgrades
- water-protected and tidy cable routing
- Easy fitting of cable length by finely stepped extension cords.
EBS display: All data at a glance
With the EBS Plug & Drive 250W Pedelec Conversion Kit's modern and brightly illuminated display you always keep full control. The display features remaining battery capacity, selected speed support, kilometres travelled, and time of day. By pressing the button once the display also shows average and maximum speed as well as total kilometres travelled with the conversion kit. The on-demand background lighting comes in handy at night or in bad weather to keep the display easily readable.
Now with display upgrade
The Plug & Drive conversion kit can be upgraded by a new display. They are available in landscape, upright or large format. The displays feature a larger area to show all data more clearly. The LCD screen improves the display's clarity and contrast. For the best possible overview we recommend the large format LCD display with impressive measurements of 63 x 104 x 48mm. For the detail-obsessed we offer LCD displays in landscape or upright format since they offer additional customizable features.
- EBS IPS/IES-control display with five levels in landscape format
- EBS IPS/IES-control display with five levels in upright format
- EBS IPS/IES-control display with five levels and control button - large screen
Optional thumb throttle as start-assist
The Plug & Drive Pedelec Conversion Kit now offers you an optional start-assist up to 6 kph (4mph). This way you can faster accelerate from the halt, which comes in handy with heavy bikes or as a push-assist. The initial speed can precisely be modulated and a short reaction time ensures a fast start from a set of lights. All legal requirements are still being fulfilled. It's your choice to attach a power throttle - the conversion kit also works without one. There's several ergonomically shaped grips available for purchase. Their respective function always stays the same.
- EBS thumb throttle, for IPS/IES, right
- EBS half-size thumb throttle right for IPS/IES
- EBS full-size thumb throttle for IPS/IES
EBS cadence sensor: Tool-less installation, fast start and short coastdown time
The cadence sensor (or PAS = Pedal Assist Sensor) recognizes the rider's pedalling movement and monitors the motor assist accordingly. With a flick of the wrist it's attached to the frame via zip-tie and industrial strength double-sided adhesive tape. Attach the splittable magnet disc to the bottom racket axle, neither further work nor any tool is necessary. The EBS Plug & Drive ensures a fast start-assist and a very short coastdown time thanks to the high amount of 12 magnets. The support already sets in after a quarter revolution of the crank, which is decisively faster than all systems with 6 magnets. The coastdown time is very short: The motor stops only 0.3 seconds after you stop pedalling. That's why you don't need a brake-activated kill switch or perform any alterations on your existing brake system.
The EBS cadence sensor features two hall sensors to detect if the wheel is turning and in which direction. Thereby it can only activate the motor support when moving forward. This way you can safely backpedal any time without starting the motor. In addition the hall sensors enable a very sensitive activation of the system meaning a more comfortable handling.
Please Note: Our splittable magnet disc is suited to fit square butted bb axles. If you own a bike with Hollowtech II or Octalink bottom bracket you will need a special magnet disc. Chose the EBS cadence sensor set that suits you best in the menu item "upgrade options" at the top of the page. For help in determining your bottom bracket, please click here.
EBS IPS Controller with personalized power monitoring
Now you can tune your bike's handling to your liking even more precisely. New technology enables a precise adjustment of power application. This way you can control directly if you want to have a smooth or rather fast start. You can immediately feel this modification through the smoother transition between steps. This results in better riding comfort and a more natural handling. The customizable power monitoring enables a greater range, because the motor uses less energy in the lower gears and thereby preserves battery capacity.

How the EBS IPS-Controllers work
The EBS Plug & Drive 250W Pedelec Conversion Kit is monitored via a special EBS controller for IPS systems. It controls the motor via signals from the display and cadence sensor. The controller is built to work with a 36 V battery with 15 A permanent current carrying capacity. The sturdy metal casing dissipates heat and protects the electronics from damage. The controller is absolutely waterproof and can withstand any weather. The controller measures 17 x 5,2 x 4 cm.
In addition to the conversion kit you also need
36V EBS Pedelec battery
To operate the EBS Plug & Drive Conversion Kit you need a battery. Ebike Solutions offers EBS pedelec batteries in various shapes such as a water bottle, seat post or rack mounted batteries. The electric properties of these 36 V batteries are precisely matched to all EBS Plug & Drive Conversion Kits. find 36V EBS Pedelec batteries
Lacing the motor to a rim
We are glad to professionally build your wheels for you. Our mechanics only use high-quality parts of well-known suppliers and have a keen eye on sturdiness and longevity. As long as technically possible we use sturdy double wall aluminium rims that allow the spoke to enter the rim without bending. We exclusively use stainless steel spokes from brand manufacturers. Your choice of either black or silver spokes and rims, respectively. Please note how many gears your freewheel needs to have. Without any specification we will usually true your wheel to fit a seven-speed cogset. If you need the rim to fit a certain type of valve (Schrader/Presta), please tell us in the order comments after the cart section. Upon request you can also send us your rim for lacing. It will replace the standard rim, usually included in the delivery. This will unfortunately not lower the price since our effort is increased by additional measurements. go to wheelbuilding service
