Tern Verge S8i

THE SUPER COMMUTER

The Verge S8i is the world’s most versatile ultra-low-maintenance folding bike. It’s designed around a Gates belt drive, Shimano’s 8-speed internal-gear Alfine hub, and a ceramic-black matte frame. 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™ 2 front 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
  • Optional rear rack for hauling a load
