*Note: These are our standard model specifications. The bike’s weight and folded dimension may not include racks and fenders. The specifications for your country may differ slightly. We do our best to ensure that the specifications listed here accurately reflect the exact parts found on our production bikes. However, component changes do occur for various reasons and there may be brief delays on site updates. We reserve the right to make component changes without prior notification, which may cause discrepancies with the information listed on the web.
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.
OCL™ Frame Joint – ADVANCED FOLDING TECHNOLOGY
The key to any folding bicycle is the frame, and specifically, the folding joint at the heart of the frame. Done well, it locks the two halves of the frame together without any hint of movement or sound. It should be easy to operate and work flawlessly year after year. The OCL Joint does all of these things and is a new reference in folding frame technology.
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.
T-Tuned™ Geometry – FULL-SIZED RIDE, COMPACT FOLD
At Tern, we endeavor to build fast-folding bikes that ride like full-sized bikes. Our T-Tuned geometry is the culmination of our commitment. We’ve tweaked the wheelbase, rake, and seat-tube angle of our design to deliver the most confident and stable ride of any bike in our lineup. Ride one and try it. Take your hands off the handlebars if you’re feeling bold.
Quadric™ Dropouts – THE USER-CENTERED DROPOUT
Dropouts are often overlooked, but a good dropout goes a long way. Our Quadric dropout is built taller, so your disc brakes are protected inside the frame. The design makes the eyelets for mudguards, racks, and our clip system more user-friendly and accessible than ever before. We even included a mount for a sturdy rear kickstand.
Tarsus™ Fork – HYDROFORM MEETS FUNCTION
Utilizing a single hydroformed tube mated to a precision-machined steerer, the Tarsus delivers superior strength in a shape that matches the sophisticated lines of the Verge and Eclipse frames.
Hydroformed Tubing: The process of hydroforming aligns the grain structure and strengthens the aluminum material. It also minimizes welding in the most highly stressed area of the fork.
Internal Wire Routing: If you decide to equip your Tarsus with a dynamo hub, it’s ready for internal cable routing, keeping the profile of your bike clean.
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.
Syntace VRO Stem – FIND YOUR FIT
Your bike should adapt to fit you―not the other way around. This adjustable stem allows you to position your handlebars further, for a more stretched and aggressive riding position, or up higher for increased comfort.
Porter+™ Saddle – CARRY YOUR BIKE COMFORTABLY
We reengineered the underside of the age-old bike saddle into a comfortable grip and shoulder pad. Up top, the dual-density construction and gel cushioning will keep you comfortable on the road, and the impeccably finished vacuum construction makes the saddle waterproof and easy-to-clean. Down below, the GripPad™ on the underside of the saddle lets you grip the saddle nose with comfortable confidence when your rolling your folded bike.
Pedal Holder – QUICK-RELEASE PEDAL STORAGE
Strut™ Seatpost – SETBACK AND SLIM
Made from special 2104 aluminum, the Strut is our lightest seatpost ever. It’s designed with an 8 mm offset to deliver a spacious cockpit and an aerodynamic riding position. It’s capped with a dual-bolt rail clamp for precise saddle adjustment.
Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes – ALL-WEATHER STOPPING POWER
Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver powerful stopping power in all weather conditions with the touch of a finger.
Kinetix Pro Disc Wheels – SPEED ALERT
Paired-spoke design allows us to build a strong wheel with fewer spokes—resulting in a lightweight, aerodynamic wheel for fast riding.
Schwalbe Durano Tires – FOR MILE EATERS
We love these sporty tires for their impressive high mileage. They’ll let you log mile, after mile, after mile. A double layer of nylon fabric protects you against flats, and the dual-compound rubber gives you excellent grip—even on wet winter roads—while keeping rolling resistance in check.
Shimano Shadow Derailleur – STREAMLINED SHIFTING
Originally developed for mountain bikes—for extra durability and to avoid catching on trail debris—the Shadow derailleur is streamlined and incredibly resilient, which comes in handy when you need to transport your folded bike. Whether your bike is bagged on the subway or riding in the trunk of your car, everything is neatly tucked away.
1x (“One-By”) Drivetrain – SIMPLIFIED VERSATILITY
There’s a revolution in drivetrains across the industry. Thanks to the recent introduction of hyper-wide cassettes from SRAM and Shimano, it’s possible to achieve massive gear ranges with only one chainring up front. That makes 1x an ideal configuration for folding bikes, because it reduces maintenance, weight, and complexity. Enjoy all the range of a 20-speed drivetrain, with none of the complications.
Cargo Kickstand – READY TO HAUL
The Cargo Kickstand is built strong and will keep your fully loaded Tern bike upright. It uses Pletscher’s rear chainstay mount design.
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.
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.
