We offer the entire range of Bicycles, Electric Bicycles and eBikes from Tern.
Tern has expanded its eBike line for several years now. Starting with just one model, and now offering three families of models including the GSD, Vektron and HSD family of Electric Bicycles.
Tern Vektron family of eBikes
The Vektron is the leader in Folding Electric Bicycles based on high quality frames and components.
Ride it, Fold it, Go Further
The Vektron is a best-in-class electric bike that folds in 10 seconds to go on trains, in cars, and under desks. Shorten distances and flatten the hills on your commute, or put a couple of Vektrons in the trunk of your car on your next trip, so you can explore further.
Best in Class
In test after test, the Vektron is called the best folding ebike on the market. The updated Vektron gets even better with improved geometry, Bosch’s newest and virtually silent motor, and a burly, extended rack. With a Vektron, a lot of your car trips will start turning into bike trips.
Ready to Roll
Once you fold your Vektron, it’s easy to roll it around. The new frame design also lets you keep the bike in vertical position when folded, so stopping and going is easier than ever.
There are other folding electric bikes but none ride better. The Vektron is stiff and stable for a truly solid ride – even when fully loaded. Take a test ride and feel the difference.
Takes You Further
Take your Vektron on a train or bus to cover those extra-long commutes, or to complete the first and last leg of your commute faster. Ride to the station, hop on, hop off, and keep riding.
One Size Fits All
The Vektron has a low-step frame design and resizes in seconds—no tools required—to fit riders between 145 and 195 cm (4’10” – 6’5”), so you can share the bike with anyone in your family.
School runs have never been more fun! The Vektron is designed to fit a Thule Yepp Maxi or a Nexxt Maxi seat—no adapters needed.*
* Vektron P9 and D8 must be fitted with a Cargo Rack in order to accommodate a Yepp seat.
Tern Folding Technology
Our patented Andros Stem, Physis 3D Handlepost, and OCL+ Frame Joint are incredibly strong and stiff, easy-to-use, and serviceable.
250 Watts of Dependable Power
Powered by either a Bosch or Bafang drive system, the Vektron can take you up to 25km/h (20 mph in the U.S.), maintaining its excellent performance while delivering a quiet ride with less pedal resistance.
No More Range Anxiety
With either a Bosch PowerPack or a Bafang M400 Drive System battery, your Vektron gets a range of up to 130 km. Clip your battery on and lock it for theft protection, or clip it off for easy indoor charging.
The Vektron comes equipped with integrated lights front and rear so you can see and be seen. The lights are wired to your Bosch battery so you’ll never have to charge your lights again. Up front the Vektron features the upgraded Valo 2.1 light with 30% more light output.
All-Weather Stopping Power
With hydraulic disc brakes, your Vektron is ready for a safer ride, giving you excellent stopping power, and working effortlessly even in rain, snow, or mud. All it takes is the gentle pull of just two fingers.
Strong and Stiff Rack
Haul all your gear with ease. With either a Cargo Rack or an Atlas Rack, the Vektron handles well even when loaded. Both racks are KLICKfix compatible, and were designed to work seamlessly with a Thule Yepp Maxi or Nexxt Maxi child seat.
Tern GSD family of eBikes
The GSD is the ‘Get Stuff Done’ eBike from Tern. It revolutionized the Compact Utility eBike segment by bringing a unique size, shape and cargo carrying capacity base on the Bosch eBike Systems’ motor, battery and controller.
Enormously Useful. Surprisingly Small.
The GSD is designed to carry two kids, a week’s worth of groceries, or 180 kg of cargo, but it’s only 180 cm long—the same length as a standard bike. With Tern’s best-in-class folding technology, it packs down small enough to fit in a VW Touran or an urban apartment. Plus, it adjusts to fit riders from 150 – 195 cm—so mom, dad and the kids can all share it.
A Utility Bike Designed to Fit Your Life.
Despite everything it can haul, the GSD is actually the same length as a regular bike, so it fits anywhere a standard bike can. But there are lots of places a standard bike doesn’t fit. That’s why we designed it to pack down to 1/3rd its volume in only 10 seconds. That means you can store your utility bike in your urban apartment, fit it in the elevator, or stash it in a train for weekend getaways.
Carries the Family
With room for up to two Thule Yepp Maxi child seats, plus grocery space to spare, the GSD lets you ditch the minivan. The low step-thru frame makes getting on and off much safer, and with an extra low center of gravity, the GSD is stable and steady.
Fits the Whole Family Too
Minivans don’t come in S, M, L & XL to fit the driver, so why do bicycles? The GSD is designed to be shared by a family. It adjusts to fit mom, dad or the kids—any rider from 150 – 195 cm. Best of all, thanks to Tern’s adjustable stem, and compact geometry, adjusting the bike only takes seconds.
Despite its city-bike footprint, the GSD boasts cargo-bike capacity, with a maximum gross vehicle weight of 200 kg (440 lb). Build it up with Cargo Hold Panniers and the Shortbed and Transporteur racks, to carry industrial strength Eurocrates, a week of groceries or a family picnic plus the kitchen sink.
Bosch Motor and Battery
Riding with kids on the back, uphill? No problem. There’s a reason Bosch is the global leader in e-bike systems—and it’s not just their outstanding performance. We work with Bosch because they offer the best service network, remarkable testing, and next-level quality control.
Cargo Hold Panniers
Think of the Cargo Hold panniers as a trunk for your bike. Keep your lock, rain jacket, and tool kit inside so they’re always ready. And then load them up with a week’s worth of groceries, or a tent, balance bike, cooler and toys for a weekend trip to the park. Use the lid when it’s raining or roll it up and out of the way when you’ve got extra large stuff to carry.
Yepp, It’ll Fit Two
Thule Yepp Maxi child seats are the best in the business. The GSD is designed to fit two, with plenty of foot clearance for the rider. No special adapters needed.
Note: The GSD fits two Thule Yepp Maxi seats, or one Thule Yepp Nexxt Maxi seat.
Cargo bikes are most useful in cities (high density of things to see, do and move), but they’re also harder to manage and store (small apartments and bike theft). Most people don’t have space for a cargo bike. We designed the GSD to fit small elevators, so you can keep it indoors. We even designed the rack to let the bike stand vertically, for compact and stable storage.
All Day Battery
The GSD is one of the few bikes equipped with Bosch’s latest Dual-Battery technology. You can connect up to two batteries for a range of over 250km. Tour from dusk to dawn, or commute for weeks on a single charge.
Friends Get Benefits
The GSD brings new meaning to “riding with a friend.” Our suite of ‘Sidekick’ accessories, including a KLICKfix seat cushion, retractable foot pegs, and an underseat handle, let two adults ride together in comfort. With Bosch power and an ultra-low center of gravity, you might not even notice your passenger.
The GSD features a relaxed geometry that puts the rider in an upright, comfortable position. Swept back handlebars and ergonomic grips take a lot of stress off the neck, shoulders, and wrists. You’re also able to see (and be seen) over the tops of most cars, which is a great benefit in traffic. With Bosch power, comfort and performance can coexist.
We use burly and dependable, cutting edge mountain bike technology to make the GSD superlatively strong. Magura 4 piston disc brakes, custom 62 mm Schwalbe Super Moto-X tires, Boost thru-axle hubs, and custom 36 mm wide double-joined rims, provide the rock-solid foundation for a bike spec’d to carry 180 kg.
Low and Steady
The GSD is engineered from the ground up for maximum stability, loaded and unloaded. We designed it with a 125 cm wheelbase—25% longer than standard ebikes—for confident and balanced handling. Thanks to small wheels, a low frame, and centrally mounted motor, the bike boasts an extremely low center of gravity. Altogether, the ride is a revelation.
Safety First (Second and Third)
Cycling is safer when you move at the speed of city traffic. Fast acceleration is a given with a Bosch Performance motor combined with smaller wheels. We’ve developed custom, virtually flat-proof, Schwalbe tires to give sure-footed stability on even the nastiest roads. Add super-bright LED lights, reflective decals, and a see-and-be-seen riding position, and you have a bike optimized for safety.
Parents know that loading kids on and off a bike is tricky business. That’s where the German-made Hebie kickstand comes in. It supports up to 80 kg, with two widely spaced legs for super stable support. So go ahead, breathe easy and use both hands to load (and lock) your precious cargo.
Sell the RV
The GSD is an awesome touring machine. It’s got room for six Ortlieb bags (4 on the rear rack and 2 on the front), and a range of up to 250km. A bit of careful packing lets you bring a full touring load, together with a little passenger. That means two GSDs let a family of four tour the world, no bike trailer required.
Tern HSD Family of eBikes
The HSD is the newest member of the Electric Bicycle family from from Tern.
Enormously Useful. Surprisingly Smaller.
The HSD is mighty but mini: It’s easy to handle, easy to share, extremely comfortable to ride, carries a whole lot of cargo—and all of this in a compact design that’s shorter than a standard bicycle.
Easy to Handle
Whether you’re riding, storing, or moving it around, the HSD is a breeze to handle. It’s shorter than a regular bike and its weight is the same as a regular ebike.
Bring the kiddo. The HSD’s extra-long Atlas H Rack gives plenty of heel clearance and room for your kiddo to enjoy the view rather than being smushed up against your back. The rack is rated to 60 kg (132 lb), so when paired with the upcoming Passenger Kit, the HSD is ready for your growing family.
Fifteen seconds and the HSD transforms into a flat package that’s perfect for fitting into SUVs, station wagons, or bus storage compartments.
Ready to Haul
Despite its diminutive stature, the HSD is a mid-sized cargo bike with some serious hauling capacity. With a maximum gross vehicle weight of 170 kg (374 lb) and an XL-sized Atlas H Rack, it’ll carry a week’s worth of groceries or camping equipment for the weekend. It even has a dedicated trailer mount, so adding extra cargo is a cinch.
The HSD flips up for convenient vertical parking. Take it upstairs in an elevator and park it inside at home or at work—it needs just a wee bit of floor space.
A Comfier Ride
With a longer wheelbase and extra-low center of gravity, the HSD is smoother and more stable than your standard ebike. Easy-Step frame design paired with an adjustable stem and seatpost offers a comfortable upright riding position for both taller and shorter riders. Add a suspension fork and balloon tires and even the meanest cobblestone roads are comfortably navigated.
Happiness Shared Daily
The best things in life are meant to be shared, and the HSD is one of them. The HSD resizes in seconds to fit riders from 150 to 195 cm (4’11” to 6’5″) so everybody in the family—from teens to grandparents—can enjoy the ride. The Easy-Step frame design is nice and low for easy mounts and dismounts.
The new Enviolo AUTOMATiQ system does all of the shifting for you, so you can worry less and bike more. All you need to do is pedal. It’ll shift up as you accelerate from a standstill, and shift down when you reach a stoplight. Set your desired pedaling cadence on the integrated Bosch Intuvia controller and let Enviolo do the rest.
* Equipped on HSD S+
Easy-Step Frame Design
The new Easy-Step frame design offers a comfortable upright riding position for riders tall or small, as well as easy mounts and dismounts.
Adjustable Andros stem, Sweep handlebars and precisely engineered Ergon grips combine for a phenomenally comfortable ride.
A custom Suntour suspension fork to soak up all those bumps on your daily ride—and to handle the 170kg load that the HSD is rated to.
Atlas H Rack
Extra long and extra strong, the Atlas H Rack handles up to 60 kg (132 lbs) of cargo so you can carry your kid, your groceries, or load it up for a week of bike camping.
Atlas H Dropouts
Custom-forged and loaded with features, including massively over-sized sliding dropouts, a belt access slot, a proprietary new rack mount design, and even a dedicated trailer mount.
Atlas Wheels + Schwalbe Tires
Wide rims and thru-axle hubs are ready to handle all that weight. Add wide Schwalbe tires with puncture protection and you’re ready to roll.
Burly frame mount with multiple front cargo options. Add a messenger bag for your daily commute or a front rack for a few XL pizzas.
