Note: Since this video was released, Tern changed product name from Elektron to Vektron.
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 effectivley 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.
