Product Reviews

A full 170 kilograms of permissible total weight, and a rack with a load capacity of 60 kilograms alone plus trailer option make the bike ready for the really big tasks.

ElektroRad

My life has changed because of Tern. Every day I am on the road by bike. I am more relaxed, and experience the seasons in the city consciously. My "little all-rounder" is the ideal companion for women who are active in life and lead a sustainable lifestyle.

ElektroRad

But what surprised me most is how much this bike has improved my everyday life. I know what you’re thinking. An eBike? In a city as flat as Melbourne? Is that really necessary? Fair enough. But trust me, you think it won’t make a difference – until it does.

Broadsheet

Why not ditch the car altogether and start the journey on your doorstep? If it's not a round trip, the compact touring bike fits easily into the bike compartments of Deutsche Bahn and the like.
