Faraday Porteur Electric Bike
There are few better commuter vehicles than the electric bike. The problem is many brands ditch aesthetics in pursuit of the e-technology. Faraday has followed in the footsteps of brands like Tesla, creating an innovative bike that puts design at the forefront.
The Faraday Porteur Electric Bike is reminiscent of a classic European cruiser, as opposed to some of these e-bikes that look like they’re right from the future. It’s equipped with a frictionless 250W motor along with a 240Wh battery, a setup that’s good for about 20 miles of pedal assisted cruising through the city streets. Faraday also offers up options for a front cargo rack, Gates belt drive and a Shimano 8-speed hub. And don’t let the fact that it’s electric fool you, this thing is portable and relatively lightweight for what it is. It comes in three different sizes and weighs roughly 35 pounds. [Purchase]
