OCL+™ Frame Joint

Robust folding technology 

A heavy-duty update to our iconic OCL frame hinge, the OCL+ is built to exceed ISO 4210 and EN 15194 testing requirements. Leveraging the hinge design of the long-tail Tern Cargo Node, the OCL+ features a single-shaft design, advanced welding techniques, and robust gussets, so it stays stiff and strong during even the fastest commutes.

Stronger by Design

Making the hinge taller and moving the pivoting surfaces outward from the center axis more than doubles overall strength and stiffness. It’s a difference you’ll feel from your very first ride.

Smooth Operation

The patented design puts four igus® bearings between the aluminum and stainless steel moving parts so the folding action is always smooth and friction-free.

Interlocking Joint

The front and rear joint surfaces lock together to eliminate torsional movement.

Easy to Use

Large rounded surfaces on the lever and joint bodies are easy on your hands and allow good leverage for easy operation.

Doubly Safe

Close the lever and the AutoLok™ automatically locks in place for extra, easy security.

Floating Point Technology

Patented technology allows the lever to fold flat and brace against the joint for protection in transit.

Serviceable

Good things are built to last and that’s why the OCL+ Joint is designed to be dealer serviceable. We keep every part in stock and if your bearings ever wear out, your dealer can replace them in a few minutes.

Precision-Machined

A machining tolerance of only 50 microns ensures a tight fit and eliminates looseness and rattling.

Stainless Steel Hardware

Cold-worked stainless delivers the durability and reliability needed for daily riding in all weather conditions.

 

DoubleTruss™ Technology

Stiffer by design

The rear half of Tern frames use a patented 3D structure we call DoubleTruss to build in extra stiffness. It helps resist torsional forces so our bikes flex less. That means increased stiffness and much better power transfer from the pedals to the rear wheel. The proof’s in the ride.

 

Quadric™ Dropouts

THE USER-CENTERED DROPOUT

Dropouts are often overlooked, but a good dropout goes a long way. Our Quadric dropout is built taller, so your disc brakes are protected inside the frame. The design makes the eyelets for mudguards, racks, and our clip system more user-friendly and accessible than ever before. We even included a mount for a sturdy rear kickstand.

 

Tarsus™ Fork

Hydroform meets function

Utilizing a single hydroformed tube mated to a precision-machined steerer, the Tarsus delivers superior strength in a shape that matches the sophisticated lines of the Verge and Eclipse frames.

Hydroformed Tubing

The process of hydroforming aligns the grain structure and strengthens the aluminum material. It also minimizes welding in the most highly stressed area of the fork.

Internal Wire Routing

If you decide to equip your Tarsus with a dynamo hub, it’s ready for internal cable routing, keeping the profile of your bike clean.

 

Physis™ 3D Handlepost

The new benchmark

Five patented technologies and unique manufacturing technology add up to the strongest, stiffest folding handlepost available. The Physis uses a special manufacturing process called 3D forging, which forms the post from a single piece of aluminum, eliminating all welds.

No Flex

To eliminate flex, the Physis uses a massive joint knuckle and a post that gradually tapers from thick at the base to thin. Moreover, it has 150% more clamping height between the fork steerer and the handlepost than common designs.

Flux Technology

The base of the Physis is machined so it functions as the upper race of the headset. This patented direct integration contributes to the incredible stiffness of the design.

Interlocking Halves

Joint surfaces lock together to improve torsional stiffness. We've fine-tuned the shape to virtually eliminate squeaks.

Redundant Double Bolts

Two bolts clamp the Physis to the fork steerer for improved safety.

igus® Bearings

The patented design puts sliding bearings between the moving parts so the folding action is always smooth and friction-free.

Large, Smooth Lever

Large rounded surfaces are easy on your hands and provide good leverage for easy operation.

AutoLok Technology

Close the lever and it automatically locks in place, for extra, easy security—using an aluminum pin.

Floating Point Technology

Patented technology allows the lever to fold flat and brace against the joint for protection in transit.

SpringLock Technology

Patented SpringLock technology holds the adjustment rod firmly in place so the locking lever is always properly tensioned and can never vibrate loose.

Serviceable

Good things are built to last and that’s why the Physis is designed to be fully dealer serviceable. We keep every part in stock and replacing the bearings can be done in minutes.

TriSeal Design

Three rubber seals keep weather out and the headset bearings functioning smoothly.

Precision-Machined

A machining tolerance of only 50 microns ensures a tight fit and eliminates looseness and rattling.

Stainless Steel Bolts

Cold-worked stainless hardware delivers the durability and reliability needed for daily riding.

 

Andros™ Stem

Adjust to fit

The Andros is our patented adjustable stem that lets you set your handlebars where you want—no tools, no fuss. In just seconds, you can set your riding position to long and low in a tough headwind, or upright and comfy for riding around town. You decide how you want to ride and the Andros makes your bike fit.

Quick Release

Patented quick-release, tool-free design is easy to operate.

TwinStem Design

The Andros design uses two stems, spaced widely apart for excellent torsional stiffness.

Fits the Family

Accommodates riders of all sizes so one bike can be shared by multiple riders.

Forged Construction

The patented design is FEA optimized and fully forged for maximum strength with minimum weight.

Built to Last

Stainless hardware and brass bushings for long-term durability.

 

Velo Ergonomic LockOn Grips

Be kind to your hands

ErgoLock grips are nice and wide for excellent palm support so your hands can relax during the ride. They also lock in place on the handlebars so they’re always in the correct position, unlike non-locking grips which tend to rotate out of position.

 

Porter™ Saddle

A new way to carry your bike 

One of our favorite ways to get a Tern bike up a set of stairs is to hook the nose of the saddle over a shoulder. It’s fast and easy, but the nose of the saddle can be hard. We solved this pain-point by re-engineering the underside of the saddle into a comfortable shoulder pad. It cushions and “grips” your shoulder so your hands are free to carry other things—like a backpack or the weekend’s groceries.

 

Telescopic Seatpost™

LONGER SEATPOST. SMALLER FOLD.

This seatpost is perfect for tall riders or anyone who likes a compact fold. It extends 90 mm longer than our stock seatpost, but thanks to its unique design, it’s 120 mm shorter when retracted. It features a dual-bolt head design for precise saddle adjustment, and an inner post diameter of 27.2 mm, so you can customize it with other posts.

 

Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes

All-weather stopping power

Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver powerful stopping power in all weather conditions with the touch of a finger.

 

Schwalbe Big Apple Tires

Cush for your tush

Big Apples are special because they’re fast rolling AND super comfy. Sounds hard to believe but you’ll just have to take them for a ride to become a believer.

Faster Rolling

Wide tires roll better than skinny tires at the same tire pressure. Yes, it’s true! Big Apples are extra special because they use a light and flexible tread and sidewall for extra low rolling resistance.

Wide for Comfort

Super-wide Big Apple tires are like 2" of super-efficient suspension. They roll smoothly over drainage grates, train tracks and potholes with little complaint.

Puncture Protection

Big Apples feature a Kevlar belt to protect from punctures.

Reflex for Safety

Each Big Apple tire features a reflective stripe so you are immediately, and obviously, visible to cars approaching from the side.

 

Shimano Alivio Shadow Derailleur

GEARED FOR THE CITY

For most cities, the resilient 9-speed Alivio Shadow derailleur is all you really need—with the added benefit of keeping everything tucked away for extra protection, which comes in handy when you need to transport your folded bike.

 

Bosch Active Line Plus

CAREFREE RIDING

With a little more torque for smoother acceleration, the Bosch Active Line Plus drive unit can take you up to 25 km per hour (20 mph in the U.S.) and operates dependably—day in and day out. The new generation of the Active Line Plus is also 20% lighter and 25% smaller than the previous one, maintaining its excellent performance and low-levels of vibration while delivering an even quieter ride with less pedal resistance.

 

Bosch PowerPack Battery

Feather-light powerhouse

This impressive high-energy, high-power cell clips on and off your bike. The best-in-class design charges fast—from zero—in only 2.5 to 3.5 hours, and lets you ride longer and further between charges. You’ll be impressed by its long lifespan, light weight, and ease of charging. PowerPacks are available in 300/400/500 Wh variants, so you can forget about range anxiety.

Light Weight

At just 5.5 lb, the weight is practically negligible during riding. The PowerPack is an ingenious balance of performance, size, and weight.

More Mileage

Ride nice and long between charges thanks to best-in-class energy density.

Fast Charging

High-power density allows the PowerPack to charge to 50% in just 1.5 hours and fully in just 2.5 – 3.5 hours* (*Requires optional 4A Bosch Standard Charger).

Long Lifespan

PowerPacks are designed for many tours, miles, and years of service. The integrated Battery Management System protects the battery from overcharging, undervoltage, overheating, and short circuiting.

Ergonomic

The ergonomically designed handle makes it easy to insert and remove the PowerPack for charging. Charge it easily on or off the bike.

 

Bosch Purion Control Panel

Compact control center

The on-board computer lets you switch between five different riding modes, and feeds you handy information like speed, battery level, and distance. It optimizes shifting actions and constantly updates you on the remaining range, just like a typical German car. Best of all, it’s now more compact and robust than ever.

 

Luggage Socket™

Carry more stuff

Fix the Tern Luggage Truss to the Luggage Socket and you can plug in your choice of front luggage: rack, basket, or bag. If it’s KlickFix compatible, it’ll work.

 

720° Visibility

See and be seen

You need to be safe when you’re out on the road. That’s why we’ve designed our hard-core commuter bikes with 720° Visibility: 360° of active lighting and 360° of reflectivity.

360° Active Lighting

Specially designed lights allow you to be seen from all angles when it’s dark out. Accidents often occur at 90° angles at an intersection so active side lighting is especially important.

360° Reflectivity

Bright car headlights can overwhelm the active lights on a bike and this is why reflectivity is important: the brighter a car’s headlights, the brighter the reflective patches shining back at the driver. Bikes with 360° Reflectivity are visible from every angle to oncoming cars.

 

Atlas Rack

AN ULTRA-ROBUST RACK WITH GSDna

With structural cues from the heavy-duty Tern GSD, the new Atlas Rack has been massively strengthened and increased in size, with a load capacity of 27 kg (59 lb). This reduces flex for more secure handling when the bike is loaded. Riding with your little one? Add a Thule Yepp Maxi or Nexxt Maxi child seat—no adapters needed. The Atlas Rack is also KLICKfix-compatible, and can hold panniers of different sizes—including the Bucketload Pannier, which was designed to fit every configuration of the Vektron.
