TECHNOLOGY

FBL™ 2 FRAME JOINT (HIDDEN BENEFITS)

3 patented technologies and incredibly precise manufacturing make the FBL 2 frame joint one of the best in the business. It’s strong, secure, and thanks to integrated bearings, always easy to use.

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.

IGUS® BEARINGS (SMOOTH OPERATOR)

German-made igus bearings make our frame joints the smoothest in the business. And, they’re dealer serviceable so that if they ever wear out, they can be replaced and your frame will be as good as new in just a few minutes.

Q-LOCK™ HANDLEPOST (QUICK LOCKING)

The Q-Lock is quick and easy to use: Close the handlepost lever and the AutoLock engages, holding the lever in the locked position. The Q-Lock is also safe and strong: it exceeds tough European EN standards for strength and durability.

TELESCOPIC HANDLEPOST (CHOOSE YOUR RIDE POSITION)

Our Telescopic Handlepost gives you the option of riding high for comfort, or low for aerodynamics. It retracts into a short, compact package for portability, but only takes seconds to extend. Plus, it’s stiff and strong, so you get full-bike rigidity.

IMPAC STREETPAC TIRES (COMFORT MEETS GRIP)

Made by Schwalbe, the world leader in premium bicycle tires, the StreetPac is a balanced combination of comfort, speed, and grip.

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.
