Introducing the TERN HSD family of Electric Pedal Assist Bicycles.
This is a new form of eBike from the great Designers and Producers at TERN Bicycles. It has a combination of characteristics that are individually found in other bikes, but not combined into one until now.
The HSD Family of eBikes offer a list of new features and functions that combine into a size that is smaller then a standard bicycle.
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. The Step Through frame is our most popular style across all eBikes we sell. Combining this with list of great features creates one of the best eBike Platforms available.
It’s 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. The compact wheels allow it to maneuver easily at lower speeds and in tighter spaces. All of TERN’s eBikes (Vektron, GSD and now HSD) move between cars, in and out doors, into and Elevator and park easier then all other eBikes. Check out our Blog post on the Vektron.
Easy to share
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 Cockpit provides an Adjustable Andros stem, Sweep handlebars and precisely engineered Ergon grips combine for a phenomenally comfortable ride.
Extremely comfortable to 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 seat post offers a comfortable upright riding position for both taller and shorter riders. A custom Suntour suspension fork to soak up all those bumps on your daily ride—and to handle the 170kg (374 lb) load that the HSD is rated to. Add balloon tires and even the meanest cobblestone roads are comfortably navigated.
Carries a whole lot of cargo
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. 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.
The new Enviolo AUTOMATiQ system (only on S+ model) 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.
- Vertical Parking
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.
- Hydraulic Disc Brakes
The HSD features hydraulic disc brakes for all-weather stopping power—which you’ll definitely want when carrying precious cargo on rainy days.
- See and Be Seen
On-board lighting is connected to the main battery so you never need to worry about charging your lights, and reflective tires and decals give you additional night-time safety. And with an upright riding position, you can see and be seen over the tops of cars.
- Abus Frame Lock
Added security for when you just need to make that quick stop to get your coffee. Best of all, it’s keyed-alike to the battery for extra convenience.
- Puncture Resistant Tires
Schwalbe’s RaceGuard puncture protection is a tough shield that’ll keep you rolling through urban road debris.
