Advanced folding technology
The key to any folding bicycle is the frame, and specifically, the folding joint at the heart of the frame. Done well, it locks the two halves of the frame together without any hint of movement or sound. It should be easy to operate and work flawlessly year after year. The OCL Joint does all of these things and is a new reference in folding frame technology.
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.
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.
Designed specifically for small-wheeled bicycles, the Neos derailleur serves up lightning-fast, precise shifts and is well protected from damage with its unique mounting design.
Keep it together
The Magnetix 2.0 uses powerful magnets to keep your bike folded for situations like carrying your bike up and down stairs. With a pull force 10-15 Kgf, the Magnetix 2.0 will keep your bike folded even when being jostled and moved about.
Carry more stuff
Fix the Tern Luggage Truss to the Luggage Socket and you can plug in your choice of front luggage: rack, basket, or bag. If it’s KlickFix compatible, it’ll work.
A REAR RACK THAT'S READY TO CARRY
Built from 6061 lightweight aluminum and with a triangular design for strengthened support, the Loader Rack carries loads up to 25 kg (55 lb) without a hassle. This KLICKfix™ compatible rear rack supports compatible bags and baskets, and its lower side tubes ensure your loaded side panniers always stay in place.
