Case Study: Beer on the Move

Challenge: To deliver his Belgian beer, Florian of Bilishi Co. previously used a logistics company but Bilishi preferred doing deliveries itself, so they used motorbikes and scooters. But cargo space was limited.

Solution: Bilishi now uses a GSD with a Shortbed Tray and a Transporteur Rack. It carries a bigger load than a motorbike and is compact enough to fit in a minivan so a single GSD can be used to make deliveries in multiple cities.

Why Tern?

The Right Design For Commercial Use

Compact and Easy to Handle

Tern has re-imagined ebike design with smaller wheels and a longer wheeIbase. The resulting lower center of gravity makes our ebikes easier to handle, stable, and better at distributing weight for hauling more cargo. This also means our ebikes are smaller and more compact than the competition, so you can nimbly navigate and quickly park in dense urban habitats. Even our GSD cargo bike is the same length as a normal bike.

Sturdy and Made to Last

Tern bikes are designed to withstand the daily rigors of commercial use. Tern ebikes are among the first bikes in the industry to meet the new draft EN cargo bike standards. And they’re independently tested by EFBE Prüftechnik to meet the toughest cargo bike standard in the world, the Tri-Test standard. We also choose rugged and durable parts that are designed for hard usage, like Bosch motors and batteries that follow automotive protocols for service.

Multiple Designs to Fit Your Cargo Needs

Tern bikes are ready to haul - whether your're delivering dinner for one, 50 kg of mulch, or 300 liters of boxes - we have a bike to fit your needs. Let us know what you need to move and we’ll steer you to the bike and accessories to fit your budget and cargo requirements.

Fits Your Team

Tern ebikes resize in seconds to fit riders from 150 to 195 cm (4'11" to 6'5") so everybody on your team can share the same ebike. Our step-through design is also nice and low for easy mounting/dismounting.

Why Tern?

Attention to Detail

Vertical Parking

At the end of day, or when not in use, Tern ebikes can be stood up and parked in just a wee bit of floor space.

Flat Fold

Most Tern ebikes are designed to flat fold, so you can easily get them into tight spaces like in the back of the van for a hub and spoke delivery system.

Boosted Components

Tern puts a lot of thought into our components, from the wide Schwalbe tires with puncture protection, to the extra long and strong rear racks, to the hydraulic disc brakes. This makes for a better all-around ride and more durability for your bike.

Case Study: Bread All Day

Challenge: When Cedric of Lutetia Bakery started a bakery he wanted something very authentic for all of its products. Ten years later, the French and European style breads and pastries have proven popular and daily hourly deliveries go out to multiple stores and supermarkets. So how to stay authentic with deliveries?

Solution : Lutetia Bakery uses a GSD with a Eurocrate and a Transporteur Rack to make its delivers. It doesn't require a special license, so all employees can ride, and its all-day battery ensures deliveries to multiple locations across the city. And it helps that the GSD gets Lutetia recognized in the community.

GSD

If your business requires the carrying capacity of a cargo bike but you prefer the compact size and handling of a city bike, then the GSD is the right fit. The GSD is only 180 cm long but supports a maximum gross vehicle weight of 200 kg. You can also connect up to two batteries to extend your daily range to over 250 km.

HSD

The HSD is even shorter than a standard bicycle at only 170 cm, but can still carry a maximum gross vehicle weight of 170 kg. The HSD comes with an XL-sized Atlas H Rack for hauling cargo and a custom Suntour suspension fork for an extra-smooth ride.
