The award-winning original. Steam-bent bamboo fenders, a Gates belt drive, and smooth-shifting Shimano Alfine 8 drivetrain make this our finest electric bike.
The Porteur comes in either Classic White or British Racing Green, and in your choice of three sizes.
Lightweight and remarkably smooth, the Porteur blurs the lines between “electric” and “bicycle,” showing the world that great design and the power of electric aren’t mutually exclusive.

The Porteur’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 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.
