Faraday Bikes

Elegant Styling, Clean Integration

View Inventory

Faraday Bikes set out with a goal of getting more people riding bikes more often. For commuters and recreational riders alike, e-bikes are a great alternative, and Faraday is one of the nicest we’ve found. Upon first glance, a Faraday electric bike looks indistinguishable to a classic city bike. Faraday engineered numerous details to hide its e-bike features, such as an integrated downtube battery, a sculpted front hub with built-in motor, an overall Apple-like approach to user friendliness.

Faraday’s elegant design isn’t skin deep, Instead of a big, clunky system with a massive motor and a heavy battery, Faraday developed a smaller, efficient system that provides ample pedal assist for up to 25 miles while keeping weight down. At sub-40 pounds, a Faraday Porteur or Cortland rides like a normal bike. Above else, Faraday proves that great design and the power of electric aren’t mutually exclusive.

Porteur & Porteur S

Make Biking Irresistable

One of the hardest aspects of design is to keep things simple, and Faraday had their work cut out for them in designing the Faraday Porteur and Porteur S. While the bike seems uncomplicated upon first glance, this bike is packed with technology that is seamlessly integrated and easy to use. This attention to detail makes a Faraday a true joy to ride.

The Porteur and Porteur S uses Faraday’s proven proprietary electric system. It uses a Bafang 250 watt geared front hub motor to provide pedal assist for up to 25 miles. This is paired to a 306 Wh Faraday battery (using best-in-class Panasonic cells) that is mounted inside of the downtube. The end product gives Faraday’s battery the highest energy density of any e-bike battery on the market, and a battery that recharges in just three hours. Integrated front and rear lights make the bike ideal for day and night time commuting, and at just 39 lb, the Porteur is lighter than competing e-bikes.

Unlike nearly every other battery “mode selector” on the market, Faraday’s is as simple as can be. It uses a simple e-ink display that shows the battery level and three assists modes. “Standard” assist is ideal for everyday riding, “boost” utilizes as much power as possible, and the off setting turns off all assist. It’s minimal, intuitive, and easy to use.

The Porteur S model is based around a a Shimano Altus 8 speed drivetrain, disc brakes, and aluminum fenders. The Porteur upgrades to a Shimano Alfine 8 speed internally geared hub, Gates belt drive, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, leather grips, and a set of beautiful bamboo fenders.

The Faraday Porteur is easy to accessorize. They offer an extended range battery (hidden as a leather seat bag) for another 20 miles of range, a sturdy front rack for hauling groceries, and a myriad of theft-prevention devices.

Cortland & Cortland S

Electric Bikes for the Masses

The Faraday Cortland and Cortland S e-bike is proof that more of the same is an excellent choice. Like their award-winning original, the Cortland packs plenty of power into an elegant package. Like your old three-speed step-thru bike, the swept back bars and upright positioning are comfortable, provide riders with plenty of confidence, and make the bike a serious looker to boot.

The biggest difference between Faraday Cortland and Porteur comes in its frame design. The Cortland uses a step thru design which makes getting on and off the bike a much easier, and makes for a bike that fits riders 5’0″ and above.

Besides that, the Cortland shares the same novel Faraday advancements as its sibling; a 250 Watt front wheel motor and 318 Wh integrated battery using Panasonic cells. They pair this to an uncomplicated mode selector, integrated lights front and rear, and an overall weight of just 39 lb. Not only does this make the Cortland easy to use for everyone, but its light weight makes the bike easier to maneuver than the competition.

Customization is the name of the game with the Cortland. Riders can choose between an extended range battery (hidden as a leather seat bag) for another 20 miles of range, a sturdy front rack for hauling groceries, different saddle models, and a myriad of theft-prevention devices.

The Cortland S model is based around a a Shimano Altus 8 speed drivetrain, disc brakes, and aluminum fenders. The Cortland upgrades to a Shimano Alfine 8 speed internally geared hub, Gates belt drive, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, leather grips, and a set of beautiful bamboo fenders.
