Faraday Bikes might have created the perfect bike with a retro look!
Faraday began with a realization – we are surrounded by bicycles, yet so few of us use our bikes as much as we could in our daily lives. This is true!
They asked a simple question: “why is that, and what could we do about it?”
They learned that peoples’ time is important, that riding a bicycle can be intimidating, and that it’s no fun to get to the office dripping with sweat. The a solution was born – without sacrificing the looks, the feel, and the experience that we loved so much about bicycling in the first place.
The result is Faraday.
If you appreciation a retro aesthetic and modern technology, the Faraday Porteur might just be the thing for you.
The Faraday Porteur is an electric bike that has the classic look of a utility bike. Only 39 pounds, the Porteur is an 8 speed bike that you plug into any standard outlet to charge. To charge the whole bike, it takes only three hours.
One of the highlights of the bike is its “Boost mode”, which is a button on the handlebar that turns on the pedal assist. Looks like biking up steep hills just got a little less rough on our hamstrings.
