Tern Bicycles has a wonderful reputation for top quality, innovative and long lasting folding bikes and this year they have released the first Tern electric folding bike. Using the same renowned platform, the Tern Vektron D8 model delivers the uncompromised performance of the Vektron family in an affordable package. What is unusual about this folding e-bike though is that it has a mid-drive system which offers the additional advantage of exceptional handling, range and smoothness.
You can fold the Tern Vektron D8 in seconds to carry it on the train or into a lift, and the compact folded size fits easily into car boots and smaller storage areas. A fantastic inner-city transporter and great for travellers looking for high quality, longer-range folding ebikes with a mid-drive motor.
The Tern Vektron D8 is powered by the Bafang Max mid-drive system, a system that caused quite a stir when it was first released by winning the 24 Hr Endurance E-Bike Race at the Nurburgring in Germany. It is compact and lightweight and with its 80Nm torque is impressively smooth and silent. The Bafang Max motor is paired with a 418Wh lithium ion battery to provide approximately 40 - 90km of range. With the motor mounted at the crank and the battery positioned low down you, the rider, can enjoy excellent balance and handling. The controls are mounted on the handlebar which provides efficient, ergonomic thumb power shifting. You can choose from five levels of power and there is also a walk assist function.
The Tern GSD S00 Cargo e-bike is a new model for 2019. Based on the same platform as the enormously popular Tern GSD S10 model, the S00 is for the family who lives in one of Brisbane's famously steep, hilly areas. It features the Bosch Performance CX motor and a 500Wh battery, with the heavy duty Enviolo continuous internal hub gears which, apart from being very low maintenance, makes changing gears very easy.
The Tern GSD S00 is possibility the strongest, most heavy duty yet easy-to-use people carrier available in Australia. It has an industry-leading carry weight of up to 200kg, a frame that is especially designed to comfortably carry two children and uniquely it can fold down to 1/3 its volume in 10 seconds for easy storage or carrying in a car.
Its thoughtful comfort and usability features that make it a joy to ride and own while being one of the most important transport machines you own. Taking orders now for estimated April delivery.
I'm a great match for you if you're looking for an alternative form of transport in place of a car - if you're after a compact family bike that can carry everything and still give you some gentle exercise and fun and can handle the steepest of hills. I can deliver impressive power and can handle the varying terrain that is common around Brisbane. I'm a brilliant transporter and will make your ride a delight.

This ebike comes fully equipped with everything you need fr around-town riding and carrying gear, and quality gears and brakes complete the package.
