Bigger battery. Bigger tires. More gears. Lighter weight. We’ll just go ahead and say it, the new Porteur S may just be the finest ebike we’ve made yet. The new S delivers a ride so smooth that you’ll never want to stop riding – and with a 25% larger battery, you won’t have to.
The Porteur S comes in either Classic White or Slate Grey, and in your choice of three sizes. See “Sizing and Geometry” tab below to find your fit.

GET CHARGED, GET GOING
Our battery can go from empty to fully charged in under 3 hours.

The best part of my morning commute is riding my Faraday Porteur S. I love cycling but I hate ending up at work sweaty so the little boost from the battery is just the thing to breeze there in style. It’s even been a dry way to get to work when the streets are wet with the built-in fenders. Definitely get the leather lock-holder and brass bell. Both are elegant and add to the overall style.

I love riding my Faraday. It’s a joy to be outside during my morning commute, it’s faster than any other method, cheaper than any other motorized method and best of all: I don’t get sweaty! It’s just the best way to get around. Now I just need to get my wife one…

Size And Geometry
The Porteur S’s wide, swept-back bars are designed to place the rider in a comfortable, upright position that’s easy on the back and provides great visibility of cars and other cyclists around you.
The chart below offers a guide for which Porteur S is right for you. While height is a good indicator of size, we also recommend measuring your inseam from the floor up, while wearing shoes, and comparing that to the “Standover” height in the chart. Simply 1″ of space between your inseam and the crossbar will make for a comfortable fit. If you’re still not sure, head down to a local dealer to give it a try, or give us a call at 415-834-5860.
