Tern Announces New Cargo Rack and Kori Basket
The things you carry are so much better strapped to your bike than to your back
TAIPEI, TAIWAN — March 10, 2015 — Urban transport specialist Tern today announced the Cargo Rack and Kori Basket, a pair of accessories designed to make it easier to carry cargo and kids on Tern bikes.
“If you use a bicycle for transportation, you need to carry stuff, and hanging shopping bags off your handlebars or carrying a heavy backpack is not the way to go,” stated Joakim Uimonen, Tern chief designer. “We’ve developed an incredibly strong rack and an aluminum basket that, together, can be adapted to carry just about anything.”
Tern Cargo Rack
The Cargo Rack is a robust rear rack constructed of thick-gauge aluminum tubing and incorporating the ultra-rigid DoubleTruss™ 3D design found on Tern bikes. Delivering a solid 25 kg (55 lb) load capacity, the Cargo Rack can be loaded with pannier bags on each side as well as a rack top bag on the KLICKfix™ compatible top deck. The unique SideStrap™ anti-roll anchoring system keeps top deck cargo tied down securely and internal cable routing allows clean wire installations for dynamo powered rear lights.
Kori Basket Joins Tern Accessory Lineup
Pairing seamlessly with the new rack, the Tern Kori Basket is a modern and sleek rear basket made of rigid, tubular aluminum. Designed to haul hefty loads, the Kori basket uses a KLICKFix™ attachment that engages securely but is easy to disengage when the basket needs to be removed for shopping.
The Kori is compatible with all Tern racks and all KLICKfix compatible racks. The Kori basket is available in black and silver and has an MSRP US$89.00. The Cargo Rack is available in black and has an MSRP of US$60. Both the Kori Basket and Cargo Rack are available through the worldwide network of Tern dealers as well as online at www.premiumbikegear.com.
