Tern Joe Tour 2022 Folding Bike
|Black / Green
Tern specialise in folding bikes and folding electric bikes. Their prime motive other than to provide you with an efficient and user-friendly cycling experience is to help preserve the environment. You will find many well-considered features on all of their models and they are an absolute pleasure to ride.
The Joe Tour completes our Touring family. It’s built around 650b wheels for randonneuring comfort, and comes stock with a Joule™ 3 electricity-generating hub for night-riding visibility. With Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and our Ortlieb™-compatible rack, it’s all the bike you need for a transcontinental ride. Best of all, it folds down small, so it’s built for multi-modal touring. Enjoy exploring.
OCL™ Frame Joint
The key to any folding bicycle is the frame, and specifically, the folding joint at the heart of the frame. Done well, it locks the two halves of the frame together without any hint of movement or sound. It should be easy to operate and work flawlessly year after year. The OCL Joint does all of these things and is a new reference in folding frame technology.
The rear half of Tern frames use a patented 3D structure we call DoubleTruss to build in extra stiffness. It helps resist torsional forces so our bikes flex less. That means increased stiffness and much better power transfer from the pedals to the rear wheel. The proof’s in the ride.
Compac Fold Technology
Designing an uncompromised full size bike to fold into a compact package is a difficult engineering exercise. Compac Fold technology let’s us get a 650B bike down to a usefully small folded package that can easily tossed in a cab, taken on a bus, or stashed in a coat closet.
Want your bars higher for more comfort? Lower for more speed? The ingenious NVO stem adjusts in seconds so you get the riding position you want. Even better, the tool for adjusting the stem is hidden in the handlebar.
We reengineered the underside of the age-old bike saddle into a comfortable grip and shoulder pad. Up top, the dual-density construction and gel cushioning will keep you comfortable on the road, and the impeccably finished vacuum construction makes the saddle waterproof and easy-to-clean. Down below, the GripPad™ on the underside of the saddle lets you grip the saddle nose with comfortable confidence when your rolling your folded bike.
Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes
Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver powerful stopping power in all weather conditions with the touch of a finger.
BioLogic Joule™ 3 Dynamo Hub
A hub dynamo is the ultimate green power source because it generates electricity while you ride—no batteries or recharging required. The Joule 3 is one of the very lightest and smallest dynamo hubs on the market and is one of only a handful that exceeds the High Efficiency (HE) 70% threshold. Say goodbye to batteries. Winner of a Eurobike award, the Joule 3 meets German StVZO standards for a 6V/3W hub—meaning it can power both a front and rear light.
Schwalbe Big Ben Tyres
Big Ben’s are like monster truck tires for your bike. They roll over anything and cushion your ride. But they’re built with top notch rubber so you can get them up to high pressure and still roll fast on the road.
The Cargo Kickstand is built strong and will keep your fully loaded Tern bike upright. It uses Pletscher’s rear chainstay mount design.
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.
Powered by an electricity-generating hub, this 82-lumen, 40-lux light illuminates the road ahead with a powerful 19-meter-long beam that’s wide enough to give you side-of-the-road visibility. A cooling system ensures the LED light stays bright until you reach your destination, and it’s weatherproof and splash-proof. So, bring on the puddles.
The Cargo Rack is designed to get stuff off your back and onto your bike so you can enjoy the ride. It is outrageously stiff and chock full of smart details that make it better than anything else we’ve used for hauling large loads. Optimized for the unique geometry of Tern bicycles.
