Faraday’s focus on simply making great e-bikes keeps their product line lean and mean. The Faraday Porteur is the company’s flagship e-bike, and is the foundation for the other three variations. The Porteur (along with the Porteur S, Cortland, and Cortland S) uses Faraday’s proven, proprietary electric system, which uses a 250 watt motor to provide pedal assist for up to 25 miles. While there are other e-bikes with greater range, they all suffer from additional weight, as well as long charge times. The Porteur charges in 3 hours. And in real-world scenarios, 25 miles is plenty of range for almost all bike-appropriate trips. The Porteur includes a set of beautiful, bamboo fenders, which are both stylish and functional, and is designed to accept a host of accessories, specially made for Faraday. Included in the list of accessories is an extended range battery, and a sturdy front-rack for hauling groceries.
