DESCRIPTION:

The Verge S8i is the world’s most versatile ultra-low-maintenance folding bike. It’s designed around a Gates belt drive, Shimano’s 8-speed internal-gear Alfine hub, and a ceramic-black matte frame. 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.

TECHNOLOGY:

 

  

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.

 

 

  

ANDROS™ STEM

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.

 

 

  

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. Winner of a Eurobike award, the Joule 3 meets German StVZO standards for a 6V/3W hub—meaning it can power both a front and rear light.

 

 

  

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.

 

 

  

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.

 

 

  

VALO™ 2 LIGHT

FLOODLIGHTS FOR YOUR RIDE

The Valo 2 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.
