Faraday-Porteur at Kickstarter

Seamlessly integrated batteries

The Faraday-Porteur electrically enhanced utility bike is one of my actual Kickstarter favourites. Faraday’s inventors explain that a bicycle is a perfect vehicle for ecological and personal mobility which is hard to improve any further. So they has to add an ‘On’ button to theyr favourite vehicle to improve it even further. The bike itselve looks quite cool for my opinion and it offers some fantastic out-of-the-box features such as a light thats integrated into the bike frame as well as an electric motor that gives you the aditional drive on hills.

The Faraday Porteur is the ultimate electric propelled utility bicycle – the first electric bicycle built by, and for, cyclists.  Dubbed “the ultimate modern utility bicycle” by the Oregon Manifest bicycle design competition, the Faraday Porteur is an elegant, powerful electric bicycle – a high-quality city bike that is comfortable and effortless to ride – with or without the electric motor.

But what i really love most is the design of the Faraday-Porteur bike itselve as it looks quite similar to my old-school retro style ‘Steyr Waffenrad’ Bike, the design is over 100 years old.

And as i saw today they got a lot of attention as their pledge jumped from 500$ to 40.000$ just within a day!!
