Tern’s Vektron gets GSD-esque utility upgrades

Tern will debut three new Vektron builds at Eurobike, each sporting a frame revamp that lends itself to utility cycling.

Equipped with the latest Bosch drives and batteries, the latter of which is to be found tucked into the GSD-esque rear racking, the frame is further tweaked to delivery a more comfortable geometry.

“The new Vektron is lighter, stronger, quieter, and more comfortable to ride,” stated Josh Hon, Tern Team Captain. “And two of the new models sit at lower price points as well. No matter how good a product is, you can always make it better based on feedback.”

Without compromising on the fold, the cockpit is a touch longer to enhance comfort for taller riders. Strength has further been bolstered, but without any extra weight penalty. The battery now reclines backwards, keeping the center of gravity as low as possible for superior handling. The updated Vektron also stands up vertically when folded, making it even easier to roll around.

The Vektron also features the new and optional Bucketload pannier. Engineered to fit every configuration of the Vektron, it can be used even when the upper rails of the rear rack are taken by other gear, such as a child seat or a basket. The Bucketload folds flat when not in use or when the bike is folded. It is also sized to provide excellent heel clearance without interfering when the bike is folded or being rolled. And during riding, the Bucketload is roomy enough to swallow a large backpack.

“Quality matters when choosing a bike for transportation,” added Hon. “With strong sales of the Vektron, it’s great to see that consumers are recognizing Tern and Bosch as the top choice when they look for a portable e-Bike.”

Retail prices come in at $2995/€2995 at the base price and $3595/€3395 for the top model. Shipping begins in the EU and US during Q3 of this year.

Tern will be found on booth B4-405 at Eurobike, which is open to the trade from July 8th to 10th.
