The Verge X11 brings three technological leaps to Tern bikes: 451 wheels, T-Tuned™ geometry, and hyper-wide 1x drivetrains. It’s the no-holds-barred Verge, with hand-built Kinetix™ Pro X wheels, a carbon fiber crankset, optional mirror finish, and a monster 10-42 tooth cassette for steep climbs and spirited descents. Ride one and understand why we call it Light Speed.
Ultra light for speed and portability
Rides with exceptional comfort and stability thanks to our unique technology and T-Tuned™ geometry
Folds in 10 seconds or less—put it in the car to fast forward to the good part of the ride
451 wheels deliver a full-sized ride with minuscule impact on the folded size
SRAM’s revolutionary 1x drivetrain—light, compact, and incredibly versatile
Chock full of special details like anodized blue accents, straight-pull spokes, and custom-built wheel hubs
OCL™ Frame Joint
Advanced folding technology
The key to any folding bicycle is the main folding joint. 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.
FULL-SIZED RIDE, COMPACT FOLD
At Tern, we endeavor to build fast-folding bikes that ride like full-sized bikes. Our T-Tuned geometry is the culmination of our commitment. We’ve tweaked the wheelbase, rake, and seat-tube angle of our design to deliver the most confident and stable ride of any bike in our lineup. Ride one and try it. Take your hands off the handlebars if you’re feeling bold.
Hydroform meets function
Utilizing a single hydroformed tube mated to a precision-machined steerer, the Tarsus delivers superior strength in a shape that matches the sophisticated lines of the Verge and Eclipse frames.
Syntace VRO Stem
Find your fit
Your bike should adapt to fit you?not the other way around. This adjustable stem allows you to position your handlebars further, for a more stretched and aggressive riding position, or up higher for increased comfort.
Shimano Deore Hydraulic Disc Brakes
Stop on demand
Leveraging technology that’s been working successfully on motorcycles for decades, these brakes will bring you to a confident stop—even in rain, snow, or mud. All it takes is the gentle pull of just two fingers. The caliper design is both ridged and durable, and the non-corrosive mineral oil brake fluid is gentler on the environment than most hydraulic brake fluids.
Kinetix Pro X Disc Wheels
Kinetix™ Pro X Disc Wheels are engineered from the ground up for speed and performance. With custom-forged bladed Sapim spokes, CNC machined hubs, and high-profile rims, they’re light, strong, and look pretty fine too. Even better, they’re 100% hand-built and hand-trued.
1x (“One-By”) Drivetrain
There’s a revolution in drivetrains across the industry. Thanks to the recent introduction of hyper-wide cassettes from SRAM and Shimano, it’s possible to achieve massive gear ranges with only one chainring up front. That makes 1x an ideal configuration for folding bikes, because it reduces maintenance, weight, and complexity. Enjoy all the range of a 20-speed drivetrain, with none of the complications.
SRAM Force® 1 Crankset
SAY GOODBYE TO CHAIN DROPS
The SRAM Force® 1 Crankset delivers a new benchmark for performance and reliability. It’s built from carbon, so it’s incomparably stiff and light. With SRAM’s X-SYNC™ wide-tooth, narrow-tooth technology, it’s engineered from the ground up to prevent chain drops. Developed for the most demanding cyclocross riders, it’s a fitting centerpiece for our fastest folding bikes.
