The Verge S8i is the world’s most versatile ultra-low-maintenance folding bike. It’s designed around a Gates belt drive and Shimano’s 8-speed internal-gear Alfine hub. The result is a practically silent super-commuter with no greasy parts or protruding derailleurs, plus a gear range for any incline. The S8i has an extra-long wheelbase and Schwalbe Big Apple tires, so it rolls confidently over any and all potholes. It will get you there quickly, cleanly and most importantly, in style.

OCL+ Frame Joint
Robust folding technology
A heavy-duty update to our iconic OCL frame hinge, the OCL+ is built to exceed ISO 4210 and EN 15194 testing requirements. Leveraging the hinge design of the long-tail Tern Cargo Node, the OCL+ features a single-shaft design, advanced welding techniques, and robust gussets, so it stays stiff and strong during even the fastest commutes.
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.
Adjust to fit
The Andros is our patented adjustable stem that lets you set your handlebars where you want—no tools, no fuss. In just seconds, you can set your riding position to long and low in a tough headwind, or upright and comfy for riding around town. You decide how you want to ride and the Andros makes your bike fit.
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 or recharging 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.
Floodlights for your ride
The Valo is a powerful light designed to help you navigate safely at night. The unique design integrates directly into 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.
More suitable for travelling than you might think at first sight: folding bikes like this one from Tern are especially practical for transfers
La Verge S8i es la bicicleta plegable más silenciosa que he podido probar en mi vida. [The Verge S8i is the quietest folding bike I've ever tried in my life.]
For the price point, and all the components you’re getting on this bike, it’s pretty much a steal.
Top für Pendler, die am Stadtrand parken und mit dem Rad zur Arbeit fahren wollen. [Perfect for commuters that park on the outskirts and ride the bike to work.]
