Tern Vektron

Features

  • A Tern Folding Bike Activated by Bosch: Bosch's entry level Active Line Drive motor is paired with a 400 Wh Powerpack to bring this Tern folder to life!
  • Take It With You, Everywhere: Compact fold reduces the Vektron to the size of a small suitcase, enabling you to bring your bike on public transportation, in your car, your office, or your home.
  • Improved Torque Thanks To 20" Wheels: Small wheels make this bike a compact folder, but also enhance the torque of the motor making climbing hills a cinch.
  • Size Agnostic: Resizes in seconds to fit riders 147 – 195 cm (4’10” – 6’5”) so a single bike can be shared by the family
  • Looks Like A Folder, Doesn't Ride Like One: Tern's T-Tuned geometry basically means that the Vektron rides like a regular bike in spite of the smaller wheels, tall steering column and long seatpost.
  • A Bike You Can Carry that Really Hauls: Rear Tern Cargo Rack™ works seamlessly with Yepp child seats for carrying kids
  • Let There Be Light: Valo™ lighting system, with 150 lumens of power, for 24-hour visibility
  • A Joint Effort: The Vektron borrows the folding hinge joint from the Tern-Xtracycle folding cargo bike imparting strength and longevity for years of long, fast commutes.
  • The New Wheel True Warranty™: Bionx's warranty backed by The New Wheel's professional service department. 5-year frame coverage, 2-year warranty on all Bosch, and 1-year warranty on all other components.

Our Take

The Tern Vektron combines a serious folding commuter bike from Tern and the powerful, reliable Bosch Active Line drive system to create a bike that our customers have been asking for: a durable electric folding bike that will climb any hill.

One of our favorite aspects of the Vektron is the ride feel - despite the 20″ wheels the Vektron rides like a great full-sized commuter. No surprise - Tern’s design team is 100% committed to the folding commute market.

What’s more, Tern (a Taiwanese company) leverages their formidable manufacturing abilities to equip the Vektron with a hinge that’s overbuilt and effectively indestructible. Tern and Xtracycle recently teamed up to design a non-electric cargo bike, which required Tern to build a hinge that can withstand the stresses of a longer wheelbase cargo bike. This hinge was used in the Vektron to help support the added stresses of an electric bike.
