Faraday Bikes

Elegant styling, clean integration, lightweight design

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. At 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 a special battery that fits inside the downtube, a sculpted front hub with built-in motor, and specially-made polished aluminum handlebar that houses an LED headlight. Faraday’s elegant design isn’t skin deep, however.  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, but, more importantly, keeps the bike light-weight and balanced.  At sub-40 pounds, a Faraday rides like a normal bike, which is a great thing. Faraday’s ground-up approach to design affords many unique advantages, many of which you’ll notice the second you get on one.



Smile more, sweat less

Faraday’s focus on simply making great e-bikes keeps their product line lean and mean. The Faraday Porteur is the company’s flagship e-bike, and is the foundation for the other three variations. The Porteur (along with the Porteur S, Cortland, and Cortland S) uses Faraday’s proven, proprietary electric system, which uses a 250 watt motor to provide pedal assist for up to 25 miles. While there are other e-bikes with greater range, they all suffer from additional weight, as well as long charge times.  The Porteur charges in 3 hours. And in real-world scenarios, 25 miles is plenty of range for almost all bike-appropriate trips.  The Porteur includes a set of beautiful, bamboo fenders, which are both stylish and functional, and is designed to accept a host of accessories, specially made for Faraday.  Included in the list of accessories is an extended range battery, and a sturdy front-rack for hauling groceries.



A new level of comfort

Like their award-winning original, the Cortland packs plenty of power into an elegant package. With steam-bent bamboo fenders, leather grips, hydraulic disc brakes, a Gates belt drive, and Shimano Alfine 8 internally geared hub – it’s a dream for any rider.

The Cortland is available in Classic White and their newest color, Faraday Stingray Blue. It’s also available in Small or Medium.
