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.

N-Fold™ Technology

 The faster fold

With N-Fold Technology, Tern bikes fold small and fast—in three easy steps. It’s simple enough for anybody to master. And with the handlepost folded to the outside of the package, Tern bikes can also roll when folded for easy transport.

DoubleTruss™ Technology

 Stiffer by design

The rear half of Tern frames use a patented 3D structure we call DoubleTruss to build in extra stiffness. It helps resist torsional forces so our bikes flex less. That means increased stiffness and much better power transfer from the pedals to the rear wheel. The proof’s in the ride. 

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.

Swept-Back Handlebars

 Dutch-style comfort

When you ride around the city, you want to take it all in. Our swept-back handlebars let you sit comfortably upright so you can see everything that goes by. And a more natural grip position is extra kind on your wrists.

Velo Ergonomic LockOn Grips

 Be kind to your hands

ErgoLock grips are nice and wide for excellent palm support so your hands can relax during the ride. They also lock in place on the handlebars so they’re always in the correct position, unlike non-locking grips which tend to rotate out of position. 


Shimano 1.5W Dynamo Hub

 Solar, wind, hydro...

This lightweight hub generates electricity to power your bike lights. Beyond creating your own green power, you'll be able to strike a few things from your to-do list because you'll never have to replace batteries on your lights or worry about recharging. Shimano's design ensures rotational smoothness and long life thanks to a clever internal sleeve that shuts out water, mud, and dirt.

Shimano Nexus® 7 Hub Gear

 Everything inside

Shimano tucks 7 smooth and evenly spaced gears inside the rear hub, protected from water, salt, and road grit. The best choice when you need reliability and low-maintenance.

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.

BioLogic FreeDrive™

 Clean up your act

The BioLogic FreeDrive fits around the chain and keeps grease away from your pants. The unique design moves with the chain so there’s no extra friction.


Magnetix™ 2.0

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.

Luggage Socket™

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.

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.

Freelance™ Fenders

 Hey good lookin’

The Freelance Fenders have a hidden rear stay design to keep the design of the bike clean and uncluttered. But good looks wouldn’t mean much unless they did a great job of keeping road spray off you. And that’s just what they do.

Freight™ Rack

 Everyday workhorse

Don’t let the clean lines of the Freight Rack fool you―it’s ready to get to work hauling your stuff. The upper deck is made from oversized tubular aluminum so it’s very stiff―even when fully loaded.
