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 Vektron S10 folding electric bike is the flagship model in the new Tern Bicycles folding range. Leveraging their renowned folding technology platform Tern have paired the bicycle with the renowned Bosch mid-drive system. Innovative frame geometry and their patented adjustable stem / handlebar design enable riders from 147cm to 195cm tall to comfortably ride it. This is a great ride too, very much like riding a non-folding bicycle due to their patented linkage. Quality gears and brakes complete the package and you have a top quality, versatile and convenient means of transport.
The Tern GSD Cargo e-bike is Tern's first foray into electric bikes and it is wowing the crowds all over the world. It builds on Tern's great heritage with folding bikes.

It is also designed to easily add a second battery if you want to double your range.
