High Quality Electric Folding Bike
Tern are renowned for the quality of their folding bikes and we are delighted that they have now brought to market an electric version with the Bosch motor. They have designed a Folding Electric Bike that’s built for the commuter. Incredibly easy to fold and carry, it fits easily onto any public transport, it’s an accomplishment not just in engineering, but in every aspect of design.
The Bosch Activeline motor is a perfect blend of reliable, mid range power with compact elegance. It minimises its weight for your convenience whether cycling or carrying, while still providing you with an unmistakable kick of power to ensure you arrive at your destination fresh and without breaking a sweat. The Purion display is easy to use, and gives quick access to the motor’s four levels of assistance – eco, tour, sport and turbo, while also displaying all useful information you may need, including battery life.
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. The seatpost system utilises a unique telescopic system, for a fast and intuitive way to adjust the bike to the rider. 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 S10 rolls on Schwalbe Big Apple tyres, which have a great amount of grip, 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 because of the telescopic seatpost and the adjustable stem the bike is suitable for anyone from 4′ 10″ to 6′ 5″!
