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


  • Shimano Alfine 8-speed internally geared hub for low-maintenance riding
  • Revolutionary Gates Carbon Drive drivetrain for a quiet, light and clean bike
  • Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes for extreme stopping power
  • Andros™ handlebar stem for tool-free riding position adjustments on the fly
  • Bright, wide-beam Valo™ Light powered by the BioLogic Joule™ 3 electricity-generating hub
  • Schwalbe Big Apple tires with Kevlar puncture protection
  • Folds in under 10 seconds to fit under a desk
  • Fenders for rainy days
  • Cargo Rack for hauling up to 25kg (55 lb)


OCL+™ Frame Joint

A heavy-duty update to our iconic OCL frame hinge, the OCL+ is built to exceed ISO 4210 and EN 15194 testing requirements. Leveraging the hinge design of the long-tail Tern Cargo Node, the OCL+ features a single-shaft design, advanced welding techniques, and robust gussets, so it stays stiff and strong during even the fastest commutes.

Physis™ 3D Handlepost

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.

Andros™ Stem

The Andros is our patented adjustable stem that lets you set your handlebars where you want—no tools, no fuss. In just seconds, you can set your riding position to long and low in a tough headwind, or upright and comfy for riding around town. You decide how you want to ride and the Andros makes your bike fit.

Schwalbe Big Apple Tires

Big Apples are special because they’re fast rolling AND super comfy. Sounds hard to believe but you’ll just have to take them for a ride to become a believer.

Shimano Claris 1 x 8 Drivetrain

For urban riding, a 1x gear set up is the way to go for simplicity and low maintenance. Shimano’s Claris derailleur combined with a Shimano trigger shift is fast and precise and gives you 8 widely spaced gears.

Valo™ 2 Light

The Valo 2 is a powerful light designed to help you navigate safely at night. The unique design integrates directly into the handlebars of an Andros or VRO-equipped Tern bicycle so it’s protected from theft and damage. And because it’s hub-dynamo powered, you never need to worry about batteries or charging again. Flick a switch and you have instant light.

Magnetix™ 2.0

The Magnetix 2.0 uses powerful magnets to keep your bike folded for situations like carrying your bike up and down stairs. With a pull force 10-15 Kgf, the Magnetix 2.0 will keep your bike folded even when being jostled and moved about.

Luggage Socket™

Fix the Tern Luggage Truss to the Luggage Socket and you can plug in your choice of front luggage: rack, basket, or bag. If it’s KlickFix compatible, it’ll work.

Loader™ Rack

This light and handy rear rack comes with a double-hooked SideStrap™ bungee that enables you to cleverly anchor your gear on the top of your rack in a variety of combinations.
