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

Nově nastavená laťka

Pět patentovaných technologií a unikátní způsob výroby dělají tento sloupek řízení nejpevnější a nejtužší na světě. Physis používá spěciální výrobní postup zvaný 3D kování, který tvaruje celý sloupek z jednoho kusu hliníku bez použití svařování.

Žádné kroucení
Flux Technology
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.
Interlocking Halves
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.
Redundant Double Bolts
Joint surfaces lock together to improve torsional stiffness.
igus® Bearings 
Two bolts clamp the Physis to the fork steerer for improved safety.
Large, Smooth Lever
The patented design puts sliding bearings between the moving parts so the folding action is always smooth and friction-free.
AutoLok Technology
Large rounded surfaces are easy on your hands and provide good leverage for easy operation.
Floating Point Technology
Close the lever and it automatically locks in place, for extra, easy security.
Serviceable
Patented technology allows the lever to fold flat and brace against the joint for protection in transit.
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

With your high capacity pump stashed invisibly inside your seat post, you’ll be much safer from thieves.

Avid BB7 Disc Brakes

Sure stopping power

Avid BB7 disc brakes deliver excellent all-weather stopping power and are the best mechanical disc brakes available. We prefer them on touring bikes because cables are easy to repair in the field.

BioLogic Joule™ 3 Dynamo Hub

Make your own juice

A hub dynamo is the ultimate green power source because it generates electricity while you ride—no batteries required. The Joule 3 is one of the very lightest and smallest dynamo hubs on the market and is one of only a handful that exceeds the High Efficiency (HE) 70% threshold. Say goodbye to batteries and recharging.

The Joule 3 is one of the very lightest and smallest dynamo hubs on the market and is one of only a handful that exceeds the High Efficiency (HE) 70% threshold. Say goodbye to batteries and recharging. Winner of a Eurobike award, the Joule 3 meets German StVZO standards for a 6V/3W hub—meaning it can power both a front and rear light.
73% Efficiency
Ultra Light 
The Joule 3 is so efficient that there’s no noticeable drag even as it’s powering your lights. Most other dynamo hubs are much less efficient; the lower the efficiency, the more drag you feel when you’re riding.
Disc Version
The non-disc version of the Joule 3 hub weight a mere 356 grams.
Available in 6-bolt disc brake version with 100 mm OLD.

Schwalbe Big Ben Tires

Roll over anything

Big Ben’s are like monster truck tires for your bike. They roll over anything and cushion your ride. But they’re built with top notch rubber so you can get them up to high pressure and still roll fast on the road.

Cargo Kickstand

Ready to Haul

The Cargo Kickstand is built strong and will keep your fully loaded Tern bike upright. It uses Pletscher’s rear chainstay mount design.

Valo™ 2 Light

Floodlights for your ride

The Valo 2 is a powerful light designed to help you navigate safely at night. The unique design integrates directly onto the handlebars of an Andros or VRO equipped Tern bicycle so it’s protected from theft and damage. And because it’s hub-dynamo powered, you never need to worry about batteries or charging again. Flick a switch and you have instant light.

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.

Cargo Rack™

Load ’er up

The Cargo Rack is designed to get stuff off your back and onto your bike so you can enjoy the ride. It is outrageously stiff and chock full of smart details that make it better than anything else we’ve used for hauling large loads. Optimized for the unique geometry of a Tern bicycle.

Outrageously Stiff
Pannier Compatible
A rack with inadequate stiffness has a very disorienting fishtail effect when carrying a heavy load. For stiffness, we use super-oversized tubular aluminum for the top deck and a DoubleTruss™ rear stay design that triangulates the rear stays.
KlickFix Compatible
The Cargo Rack is height adjustable so that it will fit pannier bags and baskets of all sizes. It’s designed so panniers sit a little further back on the rack, ensuring adequate heel clearance on every compatible Tern bicycle.
SideStrap™ Bungee System
The Cargo Rack is compatible with all KlickFix Rackpack compatible baskets and trunk bags on the top deck.
Adjustable 
Anybody who’s had something on the rear rack slip off and into a rear wheel knows how important it is to have a steadfast rear strap system. The simple but versatile SideStrap™ system is brilliant at keeping loads of all shapes and sizes firmly in place so you can ride with confidence.
Fully adjustable upper and lower stays allow you keep the rack low and sleek when you’re in town and up high when you’re touring with full-sized panniers.
