Cortina E-U4 Transport

A bike to fall in love with: functionally focused on the fundamentals, and eye-catchingly colourful. You can't help but sit very upright, looking forwards. A fashion item with long-term usefulness!

Cortina, the still-young brand from the Netherlands, has managed in just a few years to become the favourite brand of that country's youth. And with the E-U4 Transport, Cortina is offering a highly individual and strongly emotionally-resonant pedelec. But for all the fashionable chic of the Cortina you have to acknowledge that the functionality also stands up to scrutiny. Just about everything on this pedelec is solid: the stand, front and rear carrier racks, the frame, the mudguards, which in this case are made from sheet metal, and the steering lock for stable parking… but of course this does all add to the weight, and at 30 kg this bike does weigh significantly more than other pedelecs. But its characterful, fun ride isn't spoiled by this – overall it's a good, easy-rolling bike! On the hills progress is rather sedate, but in gently hilly terrain it gives a very agile ride. It's great that Cortina is boosting its activity in the German market.
