Tern Folding Bicycles
Tern’s product line features five distinct frame platforms, each with characteristics tailored to the needs of today’s urban rider. Ride quality is Tern’s defining characteristic while offering commuters, business people and travelers a bike that also offers folding convenience.
Tern's comprehesive range of folding bikes demonstrates their meticulous attention to detail, with well thought-out design elements that unite form, function and personality in an well-rounded package.
Folding bicycle design hasn’t changed much in decades. N-Fold Technology is a small but important change that results in a faster, and more compact fold. N-Fold Technology includes new frame and handlepost geometries and spins the front wheel by 180 degrees before the central fold, resulting in a package 40 mm (1.5”) shorter. Using N-Fold technology, our Eclipse and Castro bikes are only very slightly larger than the typical small wheel folding bicycle. Bicycles with N-Fold technology can also be folded – easily – in less than ten seconds.
Tern shares many of the principals that BAB feels strongly about, i.e., getting more people on bikes and building a product which is serviceable rather than "landfillable", while reducing their impact on the environment by minimizing packaging, specifying recycled cardboard, and reducing use of harmful chemicals like chromium.
