The Faraday Porteur S, is still “the ultimate modern utility bike,” but at a smaller price tag. The only changes that have been made are the brakes, drivetrain, color, and the fenders. The Porteur S’ battery, motor, and other specs have remained the same. With its battery hidden in the down tube and crisp aesthetics, this elegantly designed electric cargo bike looks just like a non-electric bike. With a classy leather Selle Royal saddle, swept back handlebars with an upright seating position, and precision crafted in every aspect, the Porteur S epitomizes sophistication and comfort. For the rider looking to ride in style while transporting groceries or briefcases, the Faraday Porteur S may be just the bike for you.

Brakes: The Faraday Porteur S comes equipped with high-quality Avid BB58 mechanical disc brakes. In addition to providing very dependable stopping power, these brakes are low-maintenance, and easy to control. No matter how hard you ride stopping should be no concern. If you require slightly more stopping power, the original Faraday Porteur comes equipped with Avid BB78 mechanical disc brakes and may be worth considering.

Frame: The Faraday Porteur S features a stylish and sturdy chromoly steel frame. It has a high strength to weight ratio and is highly resistant to corrosion. The frame also features mildly swept back handlebars with the option of adding front and rear racks. The Porteur S’s frame creates an extremely comfortable and smooth ride.

Drivetrain: The rear wheel is laced with an 5 speed Stermey Archer internally geared hub with a Sunrace chain integrated directly into the motor. The Porteur S provides quick and smooth gear-shifting; noticeably similar to a “normal” non-assisted bike. For an upgraded 8-speed Faraday with the Gates carbon belt drive, you may want to consider the original Faraday Porteur.

Top Speed: Like most electric bikes sold in the United States, the Faraday Porteur S has a top speed of 20 mph in keeping with the guidelines of federal law.

Tires: The power from the Porteur S meets the ground with its fast and lightweight 26” 35mm Panaracer Pasela T-Serv tire. These tires are optimal for paved surfaces and mild trails.

Color: The Faraday Porteur S is available in two colors; Classic White or Faraday Gray. For the option of British Racing Green, you may want to consider the original Faraday Porteur.

Accessories: The Faraday Porteur S comes with front and rear alloy fenders, front and rear LED lights, a Swiss-made Pletscher Scissoring kickstand, and the option of front and rear carrying racks. For the upgraded option of hand-bent bamboo fenders, it may be worth considering the original Faraday Porteur.
