Faraday Bikes is a young, dynamic E-Bike company that is changing the way people view alternative transportation. Faraday began with a single, elegantly styled E-Bike named the Porteur. Instead of a big, bulky battery and motor, Faraday uses its own, proprietary system to power their bikes. The Faraday Cortland E-Bike features a beautifully styled chromoly frame, with user-friendly step-through design. While sometimes viewed as a women’s frame, the Cortland makes getting on and off easier than a traditional frame. Faraday uses polished aluminum components for a classy look, and specially-designed components to hide otherwise-ugly e-bike parts. There is an LED headlight that is sculpted into the handlebar, a special battery that hides away inside the downtube, and a Faraday-specific motor that is mounted inside a polished aluminum front hub.
While elegant in design, the Cortland offers equally impressive performance. A primary design goal at Faraday Bikes is to create light-weight, great performing E-Bikes. Typical E-Bike motors and batteries (combined with overbuilt frames) bring bike weights up to the 60 pound range. The Cortland weighs in at less than 40 pounds. While not as powerful or long-reaching as some other options, a Faraday manages up to 25 miles on a charge (without the extended battery), and provides significant pedaling assist. To ensure sufficient braking, Faraday uses disc brakes in the front and rear. The Cortland features a Shimano Alfine 8 internally geared hub, and a Gates belt drive that rides quiet and oil-free.
The Faraday Cortland E-Bike is offered in two sizes, Small and Medium, and in two colors, Classic White and Stingray Blue. There are numerous accessories designed for the Cortland, including a stout front rack, and a leather-encased saddle bag that houses a secondary battery.
