OCL+™ Frame Joint

ROBUST FOLDING TECHNOLOGY

A heavy-duty update to our iconic OCL frame hinge, the OCL+ is built to exceed ISO 4210 and EN 15194 testing requirements. Leveraging the hinge design of the long-tail Tern Cargo Node, the OCL+ features a single-shaft design, advanced welding techniques, and robust gussets, so it stays stiff and strong during even the fastest commutes.

N-Fold™ Technology

THE FASTER FOLD

With N-Fold Technology, Tern bikes fold small and fast—in three easy steps. It’s simple enough for anybody to master. And with the handlepost folded to the outside of the package, Tern bikes can also roll when folded for easy transport.

DoubleTruss™ Technology

STIFFER BY DESIGN

The rear half of Tern frames use a patented 3D structure we call DoubleTruss to build in extra stiffness. It helps resist torsional forces so our bikes flex less. That means increased stiffness and much better power transfer from the pedals to the rear wheel. The proof’s in the ride.

Physis™ 3D Handlepost

THE NEW BENCHMARK

Five patented technologies and unique manufacturing technology add up to the strongest, stiffest folding handlepost available. The Physis uses a special manufacturing process called 3D forging, which forms the post from a single piece of aluminum, eliminating all welds.

Andros™ Stem

ADJUST TO FIT

The Andros is our patented adjustable stem that lets you set your handlebars where you want—no tools, no fuss. In just seconds, you can set your riding position to long and low in a tough headwind, or upright and comfy for riding around town. You decide how you want to ride and the Andros makes your bike fit.

Schwalbe Big Apple Tires

CUSH FOR YOUR TUSH

Big Apples are special because they’re fast rolling AND super comfy. Sounds hard to believe but you’ll just have to take them for a ride to become a believer.

Shimano Claris 1 x 8 Drivetrain

SIMPLE AND CLEAN

For urban riding, a 1x gear set up is the way to go for simplicity and low maintenance. Shimano’s Claris derailleur combined with a Shimano trigger shift is fast and precise and gives you 8 widely spaced gears.

Valo™ Light

FLOODLIGHTS FOR YOUR RIDE

The Valo is a powerful light designed to help you navigate safely at night. The unique design integrates directly into the handlebars of an Andros or VRO-equipped Tern bicycle so it’s protected from theft and damage. And because it’s hub-dynamo powered, you never need to worry about batteries or charging again. Flick a switch and you have instant light.

Magnetix™ 2.0

KEEP IT TOGETHER

The Magnetix 2.0 uses powerful magnets to keep your bike folded for situations like carrying your bike up and down stairs. With a pull force 10-15 Kgf, the Magnetix 2.0 will keep your bike folded even when being jostled and moved about.

Luggage Socket™

CARRY MORE STUFF

Fix the Tern Luggage Truss to the Luggage Socket and you can plug in your choice of front luggage: rack, basket, or bag. If it’s KlickFix compatible, it’ll work.

Loader™ Rack

A REAR RACK THAT’S READY TO CARRY

Built from 6061 lightweight aluminum and with a triangular design for strengthened support, the Loader Rack carries loads up to 25 kg (55 lb) without a hassle. This KLICKfix™ compatible rear rack supports compatible bags and baskets, and its lower side tubes ensure your loaded side panniers always stay in place.
