Faraday a Finalist for Fast Company Design Awards

We’re very excited to announce that the Faraday Porteur has been selected as a finalist for the Fast Company “Innovation By Design” Awards, the winner of which will be announced October 16th in NYC.Β  It’s a true honor to share the finalist position in the Transportation category with the likes of Ford, Boeing, Fisker, and Ossur – true leaders in the development of novel transportation solutions in everything from prosthetic limbs to airplanes.

Check out the competition and nominees in other categories at the Fast Company website.

We’re looking forward to attending the award ceremonies in New York and excited at the prospect of adding another award to Faraday’s growing list of accolades!

  • Often mistaken for the battery, our motor controller is actually the hub for all the communication on the bike. Need to ramp up the power as you start to climb a hill? This guy is there to make sure that your acceleration from pedal stroke to motor spinning is smooth and on time. It can also handle a little water too. #faraday #ebike #studio #stingray #blue #bikelife #controller #bamboo #waterproof #electric #classic

  • Given that most US cities still only have about 1% of commuters getting to work by bike, we're always curious to learn about commutes and how we can help bump up that number. We caught up with @tedgetten, a Faraday rider and resident of a hilly SF neighborhood to get his take.
"My ride is about 4 miles each way with a 300 foot change in elevation. Thus, my ride to work is downhill, the ride home is uphill. My morning commute includes a very special passenger, my 2.5 year old, as I drop her off at preschool before heading on to work. After I get her buckled in she immediately says, "Get on the bike, daddy!" and then as I start peddling, I hear "wheeee!" She loves our "bi-cycle-able" as she calls it...I now hate when I have to take a car in to the office as I don't get my mental space that my ride affords and it takes much longer via car. I think that electric bikes have the ability to get more people riding. The city is hilly, biking is hard, and ebikes make everything more accessible. But, I think the city needs more biking infrastructure - protected bike lanes please - to help get more people biking." #commuter #commutebybike #faraday #ebike
