Meet the Verge
Ahead of the Curve
The Verge's striking curves pack a visual punch—but good looks aren't its only standout feature. The Verge is a triple threat, offering style, speed, and exceptional comfort in a conveniently compact package. Innovative design choices make the Verge as fast as it looks, so you'll be ahead of the curve and ahead of the pack.
Built for Speed
The Verge will get you from A to B—but it's also ready to go the extra mile (fast!). Several innovations maximize the Verge's PPI (Performance Per Inch): 451 wheels, a strong hydroformed frame, aerodynamic T-Tuned™ geometry, and ultra-wide gearing built for tackling hills and tearing through straightaways.
The Verge's 451 wheels are big enough to give you an extra boost but small enough to enable a fast, compact fold. With a folding time of under 10 seconds, the Verge can accompany you anywhere with ease. Carry it onto public transit, stash it under your desk at work, and never worry about trying to secure it outdoors.
Comfort and Stability
Going fast should feel good, so we prioritized comfort and stability when creating the Verge. Its unique T-Tuned geometry and stiff hydroformed frame create a ride every bit as stable as a full-size bike, while a spacious cockpit and adjustable stem let you dial in the riding position that suits you best.
Why the Verge?
Tern Folding Technology

Physis For All
Every Verge model comes equipped with the Physis 3D Handlepost, a unique piece of technology that enables a fast fold and increases stability by virtually eliminating handlepost flex.
One Size Fits Most
Adjusts to fit a wide range of rider heights with a spacious cockpit and an adjustable seatpost and stem.

Choose from our extensive ecosystem of accessories to create solutions that work for you. From bags to baskets to briefcases for your bike, we've got what you need to make the most of the Verge's versatility.

When it comes to transport—whether by car or public transport—the affordable Verge folds into a handy package. Unfolded to its full size, it steers easily and safely over short distances and through the city.
Is the bike really as fast as it looks? In a word, yes.
More suitable for travelling than you might think at first sight: folding bikes like this one from Tern are especially practical for transfers
Paired with the 9-26 cassette (yes, that’s right – the smallest sprocket has just nine teeth) [the Verge X18] gives a range of 28-109 gear inches, which is comparable to a standard compact road bike gearing set-up.
The Tern X11 is a lively and sporty bike with responsive acceleration and control.
“Velowerx and Verge Tour are riding like normal sized bikes thanks to their wide tires, good brakes and gearing. Folding hinges have no impact on riding quality. Luggage can be mounted easily.”
