- Folds in 10 seconds or less—put it in the car to fast forward to the good part of the ride
- 451 wheels deliver a full-sized ride with minuscule impact on the folded size
- SRAM’s revolutionary 1x drivetrain—light, compact, and incredibly versatile
- Chock full of special details like anodized blue accents, straight-pull spokes, and custom-built wheel hubs
- 451 wheels
OCL™ Frame Joint
Advanced folding technology
The key to any folding bicycle is the frame, and specifically, the folding joint at the heart of the frame. Done well, it locks the two halves of the frame together without any hint of movement or sound. It should be easy to operate and work flawlessly year after year. The OCL Joint does all of these things and is a new reference in folding frame technology.
Shimano Deore Hydraulic Disc Brakes
Stop on demand
Leveraging technology that’s been working successfully on motorcycles for decades, these brakes will bring you to a confident stop—even in rain, snow, or mud. All it takes is the gentle pull of just two fingers. The caliper design is both ridged and durable, and the non-corrosive mineral oil brake fluid is gentler on the environment than most hydraulic brake fluids.
Kinetix Pro X Disc Wheels
Kinetix™ Pro X Disc Wheels are engineered from the ground up for speed and performance. With custom-forged bladed Sapim spokes, CNC machined hubs, and high-profile rims, they’re light, strong, and look pretty fine too. Even better, they’re 100% hand-built and hand-trued.
SRAM Force® 1 Crankset
SAY GOODBYE TO CHAIN DROPS
The SRAM Force® 1 Crankset delivers a new benchmark for performance and reliability. It’s built from carbon, so it’s incomparably stiff and light. With SRAM’s X-SYNC™ wide-tooth, narrow-tooth technology, it’s engineered from the ground up to prevent chain drops. Developed for the most demanding cyclocross riders, it’s a fitting centerpiece for our fastest folding bikes.
1x (“One-By”) Drivetrain
There’s a revolution in drivetrains across the industry. Thanks to the recent introduction of hyper-wide cassettes from SRAM and Shimano, it’s possible to achieve massive gear ranges with only one chainring up front. That makes 1x an ideal configuration for folding bikes, because it reduces maintenance, weight, and complexity. Enjoy all the range of a 20-speed drivetrain, with none of the complications.
If you're after the best folding bike that's a bit faster and money is no object, the Tern Verge X11 is a superb option.
The Tern X11 is a lively and sporty bike with responsive acceleration and control.
With a matt-black finish, Pro X wheels and flashes of metallic blue the Verge looks unlike most folders – fast and attractive.
Tern's new 451 Verge family of bikes feature new larger wheels, more stable geometry and single-chainring drivetrains with wide-range cassettes.
