N-Fold™ Technology

The faster fold

With N-Fold Technology, Tern bikes fold small and fast—in three easy steps. It’s simple enough for anybody to master. And with the handlepost folded to the outside of the package, Tern bikes can also roll when folded for easy transport.

OCL™ Frame Joint

Pokročilé technologie skládání

Klíčem k dobrému skládacímu kolu je jeho rám, resp. skládací muchanismus, který je srdcem celého rámu. Pokud je správně zkonstruován a vyroben, zamkne k sobě obě půlky rámu bez skřípání či nemístných pohybů. Měl by být jednoduchý na ovládání a měl by fungovat plynule rok za rokem. Náš skládací mechanismu OCL to všechno zvládá a stal se nově a vysoko nastavenou laťkou ve světě skládacích kol.

Pevnost skrytá v designu
Plynulý pohyb
Díky tomu, že je skládací mechanismus vyšší a také díky ose, která se sama neotáčí, se více než zdvojnásobila jeho pevnost a tuhost. Je to rozdíl, který poznáte už při první jízdě.
Zamykací tvarování
Naše patentovaná technologie používá čtyři ložiska igus® mezi pohyblivé hliníkové a ocelové díly tak, že skládání je vždycky plynulé a bez jakéhokoliv zbytečného odporu.
Jednoduchý na ovládání
Přední a zadní plochy skládacího mechanismu jsou tvarovány tak, že se do sebe při zavření zamknou s cílem omezit pohyb rámu v krutu.
Dvojitá bezpečnost
Velké plochy na ovládací páce a povrchy samotných mechanismů netlačí do dlaně a nabízí dostatečnou páku na snadné otevření či zavření rámu.
Chytrá páka
Zavřete páku a AutoLock systém se automaticky zacvakne pro zvýšení bezpečnosti.
Opravitelnost
Patentovaná technologie umožňuje ovládací páce se po složení srovnat do roviny se plochou skládacího mechanismu a navíc se o něj opřít, takže nijak nepřekáží a navíc nehrozí, že byste ji nějak poškodili při přepravě.
Precizně vyroben
Dobré věci jsou vyráběny tak, aby vydržely. Už od začátku proto designéři chtěli, aby mohl být náš skládací mechanismus opravitelný přímo u prodejců našich skládaček. Každý náhradní díl máme skladem v Ternu, nebo jej má rovnou dovozce, takže pokud kdy vůbec opotřebujete například kluzná ložiska, váš prodejce je bude moci opravit během několika minut.
Nerezové díly
Výrobní tolerance pouze 50 micrometrů zajišťuje, že obě poloviny skládacího mechanismu do sebe vždy přesně sednou a navíc vylučuje možnost uvolnění či rachocení.
Za studena opracované nerezové díly zaručují odolnost a dlouhou životnost, která je tolik potřebná pro každodenní používání kola za jekéhokoliv počasí.

DoubleTruss™ Technology

Stiffer by design

The rear half of Tern frames use a patented 3D structure we call DoubleTruss to build in extra stiffness. It helps resist torsional forces so our bikes flex less. That means increased stiffness and much better power transfer from the pedals to the rear wheel. The proof’s in the ride.

Physis™ 3D Handlepost

The new benchmark

Five patented technologies and unique manufacturing technology add up to the strongest, stiffest folding 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 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.

Quick Release
Patented quick-release, tool-free design is easy to operate.
TwinStem Design
The Andros design uses two stems, spaced widely apart for excellent torsional stiffness.
Fits the Family
Accommodates riders of all sizes so one bike can be shared by multiple riders.
Forged Construction
The patented design is FEA optimized and fully forged for maximum strength with minimum weight.
Built to Last
Stainless hardware and brass bushings for long-term durability.

Herrmann’s Expertise
Extra Bright
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.
Clarity™ Optics
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.
Side Lighting
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.
Visor
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.
Patented CryoCore™ Design 
The Valo protects your sensitive night vision with a small visor that blocks light from the Valo from reflecting back into your eyes.
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 bikes with both 360° Active Lighting and 360° Reflectivity.
You need to be safe when you’re out on the road. That’s why we’ve designed our bikes with both 360° Active Lighting and 360° Reflectivity.
360° Active Lighting
360° Reflectivity
Specially designed lights allow you to be seen from all angles when it’s dark out. Accidents often occur from at 90° angles at an intersection so active side lighting is especially important.
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.
