How It’s Made News:
Panda Bicycles will be featured in an episode of “How It’s Made” on the Discovery Science Channel. It will be airing on June 7th at 9pm eastern time in the United States and will be shown in a total of 116 countries worldwide.
This is a great opportunity for those in the United States as well as around the world to see what we have kept a secret up until this point, how our bikes come together in the patent pending joint design as well as our meticulous attention to detail that goes into every bike.
Panda Bicycles has done extensive research development, design and engineering on our proprietary joint design and manufacturing process, making Panda the only frame builder in the world able to offer a bamboo frame with its level of durability, longevity, and ride feel. Panda Bicycles have been tested to far exceed ASTM standards at Colorado State University and Micobac Laboratories in Boulder, Colorado. The robust theoretical modeling and rigorous testing has allowed Panda to bring you a superb blend of modern cycling technology and natural composite materials.
Each of our one-of-a-kind frames is passionately hand crafted by a skilled builder. We hand select and inspect all of our raw materials to ensure that we are building each bike with only the highest quality material. Because of the extreme attention to detail and the rigorous quality standards we have in place, many Panda owners see their bike as an heirloom piece to be enjoyed for a lifetime.
