Faraday Porteur

Pre-order your 2014 Faraday Porteur!

Faraday is NOW SHIPPING our first production run of the Faraday Porteur! Our first production is, unfortunately, entirely sold out. We are now accepting pre-orders for our second production run, shipping late 2014. Reserve your Faraday and ensure the earliest possible delivery by reviewing our terms and conditions and clicking the "pre-order" box below.


Our flagship product is the Faraday Porteur – the bike that was dubbed “the ultimate modern utility bike” by the Oregon Manifest bicycle design competition.

The Faraday Porteur will surprise your friends when you tell them it’s electric, and it will surprise YOU when you realize just how much is possible on a bicycle with a little “boost”.  Everything you need to ride safely and comfortably has been considered, from integrated front and rear lights to wood fenders, an 8-speed internal hub with belt drive, and multiple options for carrying cargo. 

The Faraday Porteur. It’s for doing more than you ever thought possible – for keeping up with your friends, or leaving them in the dust. It’s your daily ride. It’s crazy fun.

Features (see all Faraday Porteur upgrades in our blog)



Where are the batteries??
You tell us … It’s our favorite game to play.


Customize your Faraday.
Light load? The Faraday’s unique front rack is an optional accessory that can be easily removed. Leave it at home, or swap it out for one of our other accessories (coming soon!) to customize your bike’s style and capabilities.


Be brilliant.
Light up the night with powerful front and rear integrated LED lights. Ride in confidence – they’ll see you coming, every time.


Top it off.
Recharging the Faraday is as simple as plugging it into any standard outlet. You’ll have a full battery in under three hours. For convenience, Faraday comes standard with two chargers (don’t you wish your phone did too??).


All in the details.
With a Gates belt drive, you can say goodbye to pant grease and hello to the smoothest, quietest ride imaginable.


Wait till you try Boost mode
A simple thumb actuated selector switch on the handlebar turns the Faraday’s pedal assist on and off and tempts you to try “Boost” mode. Go ahead, try not to smile.
