The award-winning original. Steam-bent bamboo fenders, a Gates belt drive, hydraulic disc brakes, and smooth-shifting Shimano Alfine 8-speed internal hub make this our flagship model.
Great design makes all the difference. At Faraday Bicycles, design is about much more than just appearance – it’s about the entire rider experience. Despite its extraordinary capabilities (it’s electric!), we designed the Faraday Porteur to look and ride just like a familiar, high-quality bicycle. The Faraday Porteur looks and feels like a premium city bike, but it performs in a class of its own. Most importantly, the Faraday lets you work as much, or as little, as you want. Want to get there without breaking a sweat? No problem. Want to break a sweat AND break your record time? You can do that too. Faraday goes where you go, no matter what your mood or what your destination.
Inspired by the classic European delivery bikes of the 1940’s and 50’s and updated with state-of-the-art components and construction techniques, the award-winning Faraday Porteur allows novice and experienced riders alike to go farther, faster, with ease. It’s impossible to tell it’s an electric bike until you ride it – and then it’s impossible to imagine riding anything else.
The Cortland S features steel fenders, cork grips, mechanical disc brakes, an efficient chain drive, and an 8-speed Shimano derailleur.
