The Tern Vektron D8 ebike delivers the uncompromised performance of the Tern Vektron family in an affordable package. It features the exceptionally strong and easy-to-use Tern Vektron folding e-bike platform and has great power through the Bafang mid-drive drive system. With its 8-speed gearing and hydraulic disc brakes you can tackle any urban terrain and features such as balloon tyres and ergonomic grips provide great comfort along the way.
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 family are best-in-class electric bikes that folds in seconds if you want to go on trains, in cars, or store somewhere. With an electric drivetrain, 20” wheel bikes are just as fast as 700c. That means riders can enjoy all the benefits of small wheels—compact size, low centre of gravity, quick acceleration, manoeuvrable handling, and plenty of cargo space—with big wheel speed.
The Tern Vektron benefits from Tern's patented folding technology, OCL+ , which features a single-shaft design, advanced welding techniques, and robust gussets. This keeps the frame stiff and strong so it is not compromised by the folding, nor by carrying heavier loads and travelling at higher average speeds.
The Vektron D8 is equipped with high quality components - Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano 8-speed gearing, wider Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres for traction and puncture resistance, and its patented Andros stem. The stem is a no-tools adjustable stem and can easily be adjusted so its comfortable for all your family members. And, being Tern, there are some excellent additional accessories available. For example, the Tern cargo rear rack and carrying gear such as bags and baskets that you can add to customise to your liking.
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.
