Tern Folding Bikes

The Verge S8i is the world’s most versatile ultra-low-maintenance folding bike. It’s designed around a Gates belt drive, Shimano’s 8-speed internal-gear Alfine hub, and a ceramic-black matte frame.

Tern Folding Bikes

The Verge S8i, a practically silent super-commuter with no greasy parts or protruding derailleurs, plus a gear range for any incline. The S8i has an extra-long wheelbase and Schwalbe Big Apple tires, so it rolls confidently over any and all potholes. It will get you there quickly, cleanly and most importantly, in style.

The Verge X10: Lots of times, people think good product design is adding more features. We’re the opposite. We figure out what the product is for and then take out all the extraneous stuff.

Verge X10 Folding Bike

"…a dream come true for someone in search of a folding ride that doesn’t sacrifice the feel or speed of a normal bike."

Verge X10 Features

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.

N-Fold™ Technology: The faster fold

With N-Fold Technology, Tern bikes fold small and fast—in three easy steps. It’s simple enough for anybody to master. And with the handlepost folded to the outside of the package, Tern bikes can also roll when folded for easy transport.

OCL™ Frame Joint: Advanced folding technology

The key to any folding bicycle is the frame, and specifically, the folding joint at the heart of the frame. Done well, it locks the two halves of the frame together without any hint of movement or sound. It should be easy to operate and work flawlessly year after year. The OCL Joint does all of these things and is a new reference in folding frame technology.

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.

Syntace VRO Stem: Find your fit

Your bike should adapt to fit you―not the other way around. This adjustable stem allows you to position your handlebars further, for a more stretched and aggressive riding position, or up higher for increased comfort.

Kinetix™ Pro X 20” Wheels: Light, fast, AND strong

Using Rolf’s patented Paired Spoke lacing pattern and updated with a straight-pull spoke design, Kinetix Pro X wheels are the new benchmark for light, fast, and strong.

FSA MegaEVO BB386 Crankset: Rocket forward

You wouldn’t think something as small as a bottom bracket would make a big difference to your ride experience. But you’d be wrong. The massive aluminum spindle and oversized outboard bearings make this crankset incredibly effective at turning your pedaling into forward momentum.

Tern Tail™ Masked Paint: Sweating the details

These sharp, arcing lines are only possible with painstaking hand-masking of the frame and six (!) trips through the paint line. We love how, with a top down view, you see the shape of a Tern’s tail feathers.
