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 Cortland S e-bike. 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 Cortland 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 Cortland 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 Faraday Cortland S E-Bike is based around a a Shimano Altus 8 speed drivetrain, disc brakes, and aluminum fenders. It is available in two sizes (Small & Medium), and Classic White and Stingray Blue colorways.
The Faraday Cortland S 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.
