Faraday Porteur Electric Bike
The award-winning original. Steam-bent bamboo fenders, a Gates belt drive, and smooth-shifting Shimano Alfine 8 drivetrain make this our finest electric bike.
The Porteur comes in either Classic White or British Racing Green, and in your choice of three sizes.
Lightweight and remarkably smooth, the Porteur blurs the lines between “electric” and “bicycle,” showing the world that great design and the power of electric aren’t mutually exclusive.
The Porteur’s wide, swept-back bars are designed to place the rider in a comfortable, upright position that’s easy on the back and provides great visibility of cars and other cyclists around you.
The chart below offers a guide for which Porteur is right for you. While height is a good indicator of size, we also recommend measuring your inseam from the floor up, while wearing shoes, and comparing that to the “Standover” height in the chart. Simply 1″ of space between your inseam and the crossbar will make for a comfortable fit.
A close look at the Porteur shows a small control box behind the seat with an integrated tail-light and plug in - this is the only indication that the Porteur is an E-bike. Even the small, 250 watt front hub motor is hard to identify unless closely inspected, which is one reason why I love this bike so much. As an avid cyclist who appreciates the simplicity of “the world’s most efficient machine”, the Faraday strikes a chord between the elegance of centuries old design, and modern technology driven power. To add to the package, Faraday also stocks this bike with an 8 speed internally geared hub and silent carbon belt drive that requires virtually no maintenance. The Porteur confidently rides the line between analog and electric.
