GSD Gen 1 Lifestyle

GSD Gen 1

Enormously Useful. Surprisingly Small.

The GSD is designed to carry two kids, a week’s worth of groceries, or 180 kg of cargo, but it’s only 180 cm long—the same length as a standard bike. With Tern’s best-in-class folding technology, it packs down small enough to fit in a VW Touran or an urban apartment. Plus, it adjusts to fit riders from 150 – 195 cm—so mom, dad and the kids can all share it.

The seat and cockpit on the Tern GSD are super adjustable (it fits people 4’11” to 6’5”), so if I wanted to drive, I definitely could have done so comfortably. But I was more than happy in the passenger seat, cruising home with the wind in my hair, a dog in my lap, and an arm around my SO’s waist. Cargo bike + picnic pizza = best date night ever.


It's impressive how well the bike can be ridden/decelerated even when loaded. The frame, stiffened by many struts, adds weight to the bike, but responds with perfect riding performance.


Adventure travel with a cargo bike? Yes, it's possible with the Tern GSD S00. Payload, riding performance and deceleration are inspiring. An all-rounder for city, cargo, travel!


Just for [the GSD], a modular accessory system for the weather-protected transportation of children and luggage will be available from 2021: the Storm Box and the Storm Shield.

If you buy this as a family e-bike we suspect your main problem will be competition for ride time.
