A durable steel frame that’s easy to mount makes this bike ideal for a child seat on the back or groceries in your front rack.

Smile more, sweat less
A powerful 250W motor and our custom lithium ion battery deliver 25 miles of power-assisted riding on a single charge.

Arrive in style
With sleek lines and a choice of elegant colors, the Cortland makes sure you and your bike always look good.

Take the family for a ride
By making it easier to mount and adding a Yepp-seat compatible rear rack we’ve created a family-cruising machine.

Ride safe, ride more

Faraday Cortland Size and Geometry

Faraday Cortland Size and Geometry

The Cortland’s wide, swept-back bars are designed to place the rider in a comfortable, upright position that’s easy on the back and provides great visibility of cars and other cyclists around you.

The chart offers a guide for which Cortland is right for you. While height is a good indicator of size, we also recommend measuring your inseam from the floor up, while wearing shoes, and comparing that to the “Standover” height in the chart. Simply 1 inch of space between your inseam and the crossbar will make for a comfortable fit. If you’re still not sure, head down to a local dealer to give it a try, or give us a call at 415-834-5860.
