Where does the name Faraday come from?

Michael Faraday (1791-1867) was a pioneering British physicist whose research in the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry paved the way for today’s safe, modern electric motors. It’s our homage to one of the greats of science (no joke, Einstein had a poster of Faraday on his wall). A little nerdy? Guilty.

 

How long have you been in business?

Faraday was founded in 2012 and successfully launched on Kickstarter in July of that year. We raised $100,000 in a week from backers around the world. (Thank you, backers!) Our first bikes shipped in 2014.

 

Are you connected to the Faraday Future, electric car company, in any way?

Nope! We’re two separate companies both named after the same Michael Faraday mentioned above.

 

What is Faraday’s mission?

We believe that no vehicle compares to the efficiency and sheer joy of a bicycle and we want to make it easier to get more people out of their cars and on two wheels.

 

Where are the bikes manufactured?

All of our bikes are manufactured in Taiwan with a family-owned factory that we’ve been working with since our first shipment of bikes arrived in 2014!

 

Are you still selling online?

We sold out of all of our bikes online. Thanks for all the support! You can still find bikes available at our dealers. If you need to purchase a replacement part, please contact us at riders@faradaybikes.com.
