For 2019 Tern have taken their excellent mid drive folding electric bike – the Tern Vektron S10 and added to the range. This is a similar spec to the D8 but with a Bosch Active Line motor.The Bosch system is our favourite for reliability and durability!
The Electric System
The Q9 features a Bosch Active Line motor and 400 Wh battery. This is the 2nd of the 4 Bosch motors in terms of Torque. Perfect for getting around town and hillier areas.
The battery is a 400 watt hour battery. In ideal conditions and using Eco you could get up to 100 miles of range. Assuming average conditions and a mix of assistance levels you can still get a very impressive 40 miles with this combination of battery and motor.
The frame of the bike really stands out amongst the competition of other commuter bikers. Not only is it gorgeous, it’s packed with features to make it easily adjustable, without complicating the ride and very good components.
To start, the gears are 9 speed Shimano Alivio. The brakes are Shimano hydraulic disc giving you plenty of confidence in the stopping power.
The rear rack is also easy to adjust, and the metal pedals, which replace folding bikes typical plastic pedals, can be removed and replaced on the bike when folding. The Vektron Q9 rolls on Schwalbe Big Apple tyres, which are very grippy, and smooth out even rough, bumpy roads. These tyres ensure a comfortable yet firm ride and comfort is further enhanced by the padded saddle and the Ergon grips which are molded to fit your hand and prevent your wrist from dropping.
It also has a unique adjustable stem to that you can adjust the handle bars exactly as you want them.
Built for the Commuter
Folding the bike is simple and well thought out. The clasps are easy to open and close but everything about them is reassuringly solid. The front wheel folds back and is held in place by a magnet and a strap. The handle bar is also held in place with a strap. Finally the right side pedal is quick release and slots into a housing at the back of the saddle.
This is a truly beautiful folding bike that is manufactured with every aspect of the commute in mind. It’s easy to fold, equipped with a powerful and reliable motor, and feels smooth and comfortable to ride.
Finally, size: as with many folding bikes the wheel size is 20″ and will suit anyone from around 4’10” to over 6′.
We stock other, less expensive, folding electric bikes but when you see it and ride it we think you will see that this is worth the extra money.
