A closer look at the Cargo Node

N-Fold™ Technology

De kunst van het snelle vouwen

Dankzij de N-FOLD Technologie laat je TERN zich eenvoudig en ergonomisch vouwen. In enkele seconden verandert je TERN in een com-pact pakket, dat op zijn eigen wielen rolt.

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.

Physis™ 3D Handlepost

De maat voor stabiliteit en stevigheid

Niet minder dan vier onafhankelijke patenten zijn bij de ontwikkeling van de extra stevige stuurpen verkregen. Daarmee is elke ver- draaiing tijdens het rijden praktisch uitgesloten. De stuurpen is 3D- gesmeed uit een stuk alu-minium, dus geen lasnaden of zwakke punten. Onze veiligheidsknop fixeert de stuurpen auto-matisch, op het moment dat de hevel gesloten wordt. Zo is je vouwfiets blind te vertrouwen.
No Flex
To eliminate flex, the Physis uses a massive joint knuckle and a post that gradually tapers from thick at the base to thin. Moreover, it has 150% more clamping height between the fork steerer and the handlepost than common designs.
Flux Technology
The base of the Physis is machined so it functions as the upper race of the headset. This patented direct integration contributes to the incredible stiffness of the design.
Interlocking Halves
Joint surfaces lock together to improve torsional stiffness. We've fine-tuned the shape to virtually eliminate squeaks.
Redundant Double Bolts
Two bolts clamp the Physis to the fork steerer for improved safety.
igus® Bearings
The patented design puts sliding bearings between the moving parts so the folding action is always smooth and friction-free.
Large, Smooth Lever
Large rounded surfaces are easy on your hands and provide good leverage for easy operation.
AutoLok Technology
Close the lever and it automatically locks in place, for extra, easy security—using an aluminum pin.
Floating Point Technology
Patented technology allows the lever to fold flat and brace against the joint for protection in transit.
SpringLock Technology
Patented SpringLock technology holds the adjustment rod firmly in place so the locking lever is always properly tensioned and can never vibrate loose.
Serviceable
Good things are built to last and that’s why the Physis is designed to be fully dealer serviceable. We keep every part in stock and replacing the bearings can be done in minutes.
TriSeal Design
Three rubber seals keep weather out and the headset bearings functioning smoothly.
Precision-Machined
A machining tolerance of only 50 microns ensures a tight fit and eliminates looseness and rattling.

Valo™ 2 Light

Een zee van licht voor de donkere ritten

De VALO™ 2 koplamp heeft een lichtkracht van 41 Lux en 150 lumen, gevoed door de naafdy-namo en is volledig in de Andros- of VRO 47 voorbouw geïntegreerd. Door de volledige integratie is de VALO tegen diefstal en bescha-digingen beschermd. Door de standlichtfunctie ben je ook tijdens stilstand zichtbaar.
Herrmann’s Expertise
We designed the Valo with Herrmans, the Finnish lighting experts who have a side business making lights for massive earth tunneling machines. No surprise then that the Valo is ready for all weather conditions: it’s made from cold-resistant ABS with built in water management channels.
Extra Bright
The Valo puts out 41 lux of light, 4x brighter than the European requirement for bicycle lighting. That means you get a bright, wide beam of light that makes cycling at night safe and reassuring.
Clarity™ Optics
The Valo has a carefully shaped mirror that optimizes the beam pattern for cycling. It is wide, so you can see potential obstacles or hazards on the side of the road. It is even, without hotspots, so your night vision is not compromised. And it is clipped at the top of the beam pattern so you don’t blind oncoming cyclists or motorists.
Side Lighting
The Valo has light channels on each side so that you are visible to cars approaching from the sides. For additional safety, the Valo has two additional LED’s on each side, which light up when you’re stopped at a traffic light.
Visor
The Valo protects your sensitive night vision with a small visor that blocks light from the Valo from reflecting back into your eyes.
Patented CryoCore™ Design
LED lights need to run cool to work optimally. If they run too hot over a period of time, they gradually lose brightness. Most LED lights have a tiny button sized heat sink that is used to dissipate heat. Our patented design connects the Valo to the handlebar so the entire bar is used as a massive heat sink.

720° Visibility

See and be seen

You need to be safe when you’re out on the road. That’s why we’ve designed our hard-core commuter bikes with 720° Visibility: 360° of active lighting and 360° of reflectivity.
360° Active Lighting
Specially designed lights allow you to be seen from all angles when it’s dark out. Accidents often occur at 90° angles at an intersection so active side lighting is especially important.
360° Reflectivity
Bright car headlights can overwhelm the active lights on a bike and this is why reflectivity is important: the brighter a car’s headlights, the brighter the reflective patches shining back at the driver. Bikes with 360° Reflectivity are visible from every angle to oncoming cars.
