Meet the Node

Tern Node - 24 inch wheel folding bike

Where Comfort and Convenience Meet

The Node is for riders who want it all: the convenience of a folding bike plus the comfort of a big sturdy city bike. The Node rolls on full-size wheels and rides like a Dutch city bike—but folds down small in seconds for easy storage, transport, and security. At the intersection of folding and full-size, the Node stands ready for service.

Real-Life Ready

Real life has gnarly commutes, last-minute grocery runs, rainy days, and even the occasional pothole—and the Node is equipped to tackle it all. Versatile gearing and rugged tires make city riding less of a chore, while the included or optional rear rack, fenders, and integrated lighting makes the Node an all-weather, day-or-night workhorse.

Compact Folding Convenience

Despite its big bike bona fides, the Node folds down small in about 10 seconds. The Node's folded size is compact enough to carry it onto the subway, stick it in the trunk of your car, or stash it under your desk at work. With more places to go and fewer opportunities for theft, folding means freedom.
