It's a boat… It's a bike… It's the Porteur S!
We’re excited to announce the Faraday Porteur S, our newest model of beautiful electric bicycles, has arrived! Hundreds of Grey and White Porteur S’s arrived in San Francisco from Taiwan by cargo ship last week, and are heading to a dealer near you as we type. Even better, there are already a few folks who have theirs on the road and are loving them!
Launching this new model is a big step toward fulfilling our vision of building beautiful, electric bicycles that people want to ride every day. More importantly, getting our bikes produced on a scale and at a price that’s accessible to a wider audience allows us to help more people have happier commutes and healthier lives. You can’t put a price tag on that.
As you can see, the Porteur S delivers the same Faraday style that you’ve come to know and love with the Porteur, only with a few small changes to put the bike within reach of more riders. The S offers a five-speed internally geared hub instead of an eight-speed, steel fenders instead of bamboo, a metal chain instead of a Carbon Fiber Belt drive, and synthetic grips rather than leather.
Most importantly, it has that same Faraday magic that elicit this response from first time riders.
We want to see as many people as possible biking on the roads, and one of the firs steps is buying a bike you really love. One that will get you uphill without a struggle, and to your office without a sweat. One that won’t sit in your garage collecting dust. So, what are you waiting for? Get yours today!
