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.

Stronger by Design

Making the hinge taller and moving the pivoting surfaces outward from the center axis more than doubles overall strength and stiffness. It’s a difference you’ll feel from your very first ride.

Smooth Operation

The patented design puts four igus® bearings between the aluminum and stainless steel moving parts so the folding action is always smooth and friction-free.

Interlocking Joint

The front and rear joint surfaces lock together to eliminate torsional movement.

Easy to Use

Large rounded surfaces on the lever and joint bodies are easy on your hands and allow good leverage for easy operation.

Doubly Safe

Close the lever and the AutoLok™ automatically locks in place for extra, easy security.

Floating Point Technology

Patented technology allows the lever to fold flat and brace against the joint for protection in transit.

Serviceable

Good things are built to last and that’s why the OCL+ Joint is designed to be dealer serviceable. We keep every part in stock and if your bearings ever wear out, your dealer can replace them in a few minutes.

Precision-Machined

A machining tolerance of only 50 microns ensures a tight fit and eliminates looseness and rattling.

Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes

All-weather stopping power

Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver powerful stopping power in all weather conditions with the touch of a finger.

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.

73% Efficiency

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.

Ultra Light

The non-disc version of the Joule 3 hub weight a mere 356 grams.

Disc Version

Available in 6-bolt disc brake version with 100 mm OLD.

Shimano® Alfine 8 Hub Gear

State of the art

The Alfine 8 is Shimano’s masterpiece of an internal hub gear, packing 8 evenly spaced gears inside a weatherproof hub. The hub has very low rolling resistance and features silky smooth shifting so you’re ready to tackle anything on the commute.

Schwalbe Big Apple Tires

Cush for your tush

Big Apples are special because they’re fast rolling AND super comfy. Sounds hard to believe but you’ll just have to take them for a ride to become a believer.

Faster Rolling

Wide tires roll better than skinny tires at the same tire pressure. Yes, it’s true! Big Apples are extra special because they use a light and flexible tread and sidewall for extra low rolling resistance.

Wide for Comfort

Super-wide Big Apple tires are like 2" of super-efficient suspension. They roll smoothly over drainage grates, train tracks and potholes with little complaint.

Puncture Protection

Big Apples feature a Kevlar belt to protect from punctures.

Reflex for Safety

Each Big Apple tire features a reflective stripe so you are immediately, and obviously, visible to cars approaching from the side.

Gates Carbon Belt Drive

Clean living

The Gates belt drive is the ultimate commuter drive system: it’s clean, light, quiet, and requires zero maintenance.

Clean

Unlike chain drive systems, the Gates belt drive doesn’t require any grease. It’s always dry and clean—an extra bonus when you’re riding with your nice pants or squeezing onto a crowded subway.

Light

The Gates belt, rear sprocket, and front sprocket together weigh less than just the chain it replaces.

Low Noise

The Gates belt runs silently—always—unlike a chain that needs regular lubrication to run quietly.

Zero Maintenance

The Gates belt does not stretch (unlike a chain) and will last twice as long. It won’t rust and never needs lubrication—a big plus if you ride in wet, icy weather and roads get salted in the winter.

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™ Light

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.

Herrmann’s Expertise

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.

Extra Bright

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.

Clarity™ Optics

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.

Side Lighting

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.

Visor

The Valo protects your sensitive night vision with a small visor that blocks light from the Valo from reflecting back into your eyes.

Patented CryoCore™ Design

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 hard-core commuter bikes with 720° Visibility: 360° of active lighting and 360° of reflectivity.

360° Active Lighting

Specially designed lights allow you to be seen from all angles when it’s dark out. Accidents often occur at 90° angles at an intersection so active side lighting is especially important.

360° Reflectivity

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 Tern bicycles.

Outrageously Stiff

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.

Pannier 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.

KlickFix Compatible

The Cargo Rack is compatible with all KlickFix Rackpack compatible baskets and trunk bags on the top deck.

SideStrap™ Bungee System

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.

Adjustable

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.
