A closer look at the Joe Tour

OCL™ Frame Joint

Hightech –vouwtechnologie

Onze hightech frame-scharnier is stabiel en stijf. Vakkundig gefreesd en door de vakhandel te onderhouden, om jarenlang mee te kunnen. Wrijving-arme igus® glijlagers garanderen prob-leemloos vouwen. De hevel laat zich vlak op het scharnier klappen en zorgt zo voor bescherming bij transport.
Stronger by Design
Making the hinge taller and moving the pivoting surfaces outward from the center axis more than doubles overall strength and stiffness. It’s a difference you’ll feel from your very first ride.
Smooth Operation
The patented design puts four igus® bearings between the aluminum and stainless steel moving parts so the folding action is always smooth and friction-free.
Interlocking Joint
The front and rear joint surfaces lock together to eliminate torsional movement.
Easy to Use
Large rounded surfaces on the lever and joint bodies are easy on your hands and allow good leverage for easy operation.
Doubly Safe
Close the lever and the AutoLok automatically locks in place, for extra, easy security.
Floating Point Technology
Patented technology allows the lever to fold flat and brace against the joint for protection in transit.
Serviceable
Good things are built to last and that’s why the OCL Joint is designed to be dealer serviceable. We keep every part in stock and if your bearings ever wear out, your dealer can replace them in a few minutes.
Precision-Machined
A machining tolerance of only 50 microns ensures a tight fit and eliminates looseness and rattling.
Stainless Steel Hardware
Cold-worked stainless delivers the durability and reliability needed for daily riding in all weather conditions.

DoubleTruss™ Technology

Extra stijf dankzij 3D constructie

Af en toe- denk aan een hangbrug- zijn de meest functionele constructies ook de mooiste. Onze DoubleTruss (tm) frameconstructie is de perfecte verbinding tussen vorm en functie: ontdek het als je de lichte en elegante TERN uitvouwt.

Compac Fold Technology

Big bike, small fold

Designing an uncompromised full size bike to fold into a compact package is a difficult engineering exercise. Compac Fold technology let’s us get a 650B bike down to a usefully small folded package that can easily tossed in a cab, taken on a bus, or stashed in a coat closet.

NVO Stem

Designed to adapt

Want your bars higher for more comfort? Lower for more speed? The ingenious NVO stem adjusts in seconds so you get the riding position you want. Even better, the tool for adjusting the stem is hidden in the handlebar.

BioLogic Arx™ Grips with T-Tool

There when you need it

BioLogic Arx grips are quality, ergonomic grips designed to put your hands and wrists in a comfortable position. But they have a hidden secret—a 4/5/6 mm Allen tool hides in the right grip. It’s there when you need it, out of the way when you don’t.

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.

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.

BioLogic Joule™ 3 Dynamo Hub

Maak je eigen power

De Joule 3 naafdynamo is zo licht en efficiënt, dat je hem nauwelijks zult opmerken- tot je hem nodig hebt. Als stroomvoorziening voor je koplamp of smartphone- met de Joule 3 heb je altijd genoeg energie.
73% Efficiency
The Joule 3 is so efficient that there’s no noticeable drag even as it’s powering your lights. Most other dynamo hubs are much less efficient; the lower the efficiency, the more drag you feel when you’re riding.
Ultra Light
The non-disc version of the Joule 3 hub weight a mere 356 grams.
Disc Version
Available in 6-bolt disc brake version with 100 mm OLD.

Schwalbe Big Ben Tires

Roll over anything

Big Ben’s are like monster truck tires for your bike. They roll over anything and cushion your ride. But they’re built with top notch rubber so you can get them up to high pressure and still roll fast on the road.

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.

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.

Herrmans H-Flow

LIGHT THE WAY

Powered by an electricity-generating hub, this 82-lumen, 40-lux light illuminates the road ahead with a powerful 19-meter-long beam that’s wide enough to give you side-of-the-road visibility. A cooling system ensures the LED light stays bright until you reach your destination, and it’s weatherproof and splash-proof. So, bring on the puddles.

Cargo Rack™

Load ’er up

The Cargo Rack is designed to get stuff off your back and onto your bike so you can enjoy the ride. It is outrageously stiff and chock full of smart details that make it better than anything else we’ve used for hauling large loads. Optimized for the unique geometry of Tern bicycles.
Outrageously Stiff
A rack with inadequate stiffness has a very disorienting fishtail effect when carrying a heavy load. For stiffness, we use super-oversized tubular aluminum for the top deck and a DoubleTruss™ rear stay design that triangulates the rear stays.
Pannier Compatible
The Cargo Rack is height adjustable so that it will fit pannier bags and baskets of all sizes. It’s designed so panniers sit a little further back on the rack, ensuring adequate heel clearance on every compatible Tern bicycle.
KlickFix Compatible
The Cargo Rack is compatible with all KlickFix Rackpack compatible baskets and trunk bags on the top deck.
SideStrap™ Bungee System
Anybody who’s had something on the rear rack slip off and into a rear wheel knows how important it is to have a steadfast rear strap system. The simple but versatile SideStrap™ system is brilliant at keeping loads of all shapes and sizes firmly in place so you can ride with confidence.
Adjustable
Fully adjustable upper and lower stays allow you keep the rack low and sleek when you’re in town and up high when you’re touring with full-sized panniers.
