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

The new benchmark

Four patented technologies and unique manufacturing technology add up to the strongest, stiffest handlepost available. The Physis uses a special manufacturing process called 3D forging, which forms the post from a single piece of aluminum, eliminating all welds.
No Flex
To eliminate flex, the Physis was designed with a massive joint knuckle and a post that gradually tapers from thick at the base to thin. The fork steerer interface is 150% more stiff 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.
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.
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 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.
Stainless Steel Bolts
Cold-worked stainless hardware delivers the durability and reliability needed for daily riding.

Shimano Nexus® 7 Hub Gear

Everything inside

Shimano tucks 7 smooth and evenly spaced gears inside the rear hub, protected from water, salt, and road grit. The best choice when you need reliability and low-maintenance.

Schwalbe Big Apple Tires

Cush for your tush

Big Apples are special because they’re fast rolling AND super comfy. Sounds hard to believe but you’ll just have to take them for a ride to become a believer.
Faster Rolling
Wide tires roll better than skinny tires at the same tire pressure. Yes, it’s true! Big Apples are extra special because they use a light and flexible tread and sidewall for extra low rolling resistance.
Wide for Comfort
Super-wide Big Apple tires are like 2" of super-efficient suspension. They roll smoothly over drainage grates, train tracks and potholes with little complaint.
Puncture Protection
Big Apples feature a Kevlar belt to protect from punctures.
Reflex for Safety
Each Big Apple tire features a reflective stripe so you are immediately, and obviously, visible to cars approaching from the side.

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.

Luggage Socket™

Carry more stuff

Fix the Tern Luggage Truss to the Luggage Socket and you can plug in your choice of front luggage: rack, basket, or bag. If it’s KlickFix compatible, it’ll work.
