For 2019 the Tern GSD transforms into a line of bikes with two models: the S10, and the S00.
Here are answers to some common questions about the new lineup.
How is the S00 model different from the S10?
There are two areas where GSD models differ: motor and drivetrain. The S00 features the higher torque Bosch CX Line Drive, which is better suited for climbing with a load. The S00 also features the Enviolo transmission, containing its gears within the rear hub for reduced maintenance and durability. Shift at a stop as well as while pedalling, even up a hill. The Enviolo click-free twist shifter is user-friendly and intuitive, just adjust to feel with infinite variability.
What do the S00 and the S10 have in common?
Both models offer the same super strong, compact aluminum frame with integrated rack, secure thru-axles and top-quality brakes to ensure your safety. Both feature the ability to attach up to 2 child seats without extra adapters, and a wide range of optional accessories to transform your bike from kid hauler to cargo carrier and back.
Who is this bike best suited for?
Urban and Suburban families have been our largest group on the GSD. Primarily because it's our most compact cargo bike capable of carrying up to 2 kids. The great ride and simple operation making it good for novice riders. Riders with more experience will appreciate the nuanced handling performance at speed. The GSD can also fit inside many spaces where other cargo bikes cannot: your car, your garage, your office or your apartment. Verticle storage capability uniquely built into the GSD is especially useful where space is limited.
Adjustability make the GSD a true car replacement.
Many of our GSD customers come to us seeking a bike to help them reduce or eliminate the burden of using a car in the city. The GSD is supremely adjustable and this enables riders of vastly different heights to get a custom fit and enjoy riding. It's like having a different bike perfect for each family member, all in one bike. Flexibile cargo-carrying options on the rear rack and the optional front rack mean you use the GSD in many of the same ways you use a car–passenger shuttle, cargo hauler and then some, even as a work vehicle for tools and materials. GSD means Get Stuff Done!
Anything else notable about the GSD?
The GSD S10 is our most affordable 2-kid-capable bike, with plenty of expansion options. The GSD S00 adds performance features, lower maintenance, and increased ease of use, as well as some included accessories. The bottom line is that Tern delivers incredible value in both the S10 and the new S00.
