Verge X10

Shorten the Commute

Lots of times, people think good product design is adding more features. We’re the opposite. We figure out what the product is for and then take out all the extraneous stuff. This is the bike for city riders looking for something really light, really fast, really portable and made from top quality stuff so they can get where they are going, fast. Nothing more.

  • The lightest bike in our collection at 9.6 kg (21.2 lb)
  • Kinetix™ Pro X wheels with straight-pull spokes and smooth-rolling hubs
  • SLX 11-36T 10 speed cassette paired with a 55T chainring for a wide gear range
  • SRAM X9 rear derailleur and Mainstay Chain Guide for precise and reliable shifting
  • Lightweight Tarsus™ hydroformed fork
  • Folds compactly in 10 seconds for storage and transport

…a dream come true for someone in search of a folding ride that doesn’t sacrifice the feel or speed of a normal bike.

Product Reviews

"The Verge X10 is an awfully quick little rig, scooting forward with each pedal stroke and maintaining a healthy clip in an efficient-feeling manner that's more befitting of a mid-ranged road bike than something intended for commuting. Perhaps most telling is the fact that we often grabbed the Verge X10 if we were running late for something (which was pretty much always)."

"What surprised me the most, was the Kinetix pro wheelset and the stock-standard Schwalbe Durano tires. I’ve underestimated them, thinking that it was flimsy and unable to take my weight. With a Godzilla-sized rider like me, the rims and tires were able to withstand our harsh road conditions. Not only that, its capable of yielding 25km/h on the average with little effort. So, imagine if you are really fit and have the power to weight ratio. This bike will fly!"

"Setup couldn't be simpler: Flip a lever to unfasten the main body and fold the bike in half, flip a level on the handlebars to fold those down, push in the pedals, and lower the seat . . . the Verge Duo was a comfortable breeze to drive around bumpy, hill-heavy Brooklyn bike paths. Finally, at less than $1,000, it's a steal when compared with its pricier U.K.-built competitors."

"The Verge X10 from Tern Bicycles is one of the lightest folding bikes on the market. Weighing just 21.3 lbs the Verge X10 folding bike is designed from the ground up for one purpose - ultra portable performance. This folding bicycle is very easy to lift, carry up stairs, and speed down the street."

"The Tern Verge X30h is by far the fastest folding bike I have ever ridden. At just under 23 lbs the X30h feels like you’re riding air. Normally, when I come to a stop light, I jump forward off of the seat and rest my foot on the right pedal in anticipation of the green light, but, with the X30h, even the weight of my foot was enough to make the bike creep forward, as though the bike wanted to speed off right out from under me."

"The components and technology are second-to-none. The gear range is wide enough to cover anything you’ll tackle in the urban environment: a SRAM 11-36T cassette, and an FSA 55T chainring. Changing gear is smooth, and the bike runs silently. The Double Truss frame is stiff and responsive to the power you put through it. The TIG welding is as beautiful as it is functional. Forget even the folding aspect, because it’s just a great bike."
