The Tern GSD S10 is one of the most fun and practical e-bikes we've ever tried and a true alternative to car transport.


About the Tern GSD S10:

June 2020: The GSD bikes are in extremely short supply. Please email us to check availability. 

The Tern GSD S10 electric cargo bike is not only ultra versatile and capable of carrying a heavy load, it's also surprisingly compact and comfortable as well.

It's powered by a super-responsive Bosch Performance motor, so you’ll never feel the full weight of the bike, or have any anxiety gutting up steeper inclines.

Whether its kids or shopping you’re carrying around, the Tern GSD can handle it and you can fit all sorts of accessories to it to make it even more useful. There are various cargo racks and trays, seat pads, child seats….the list goes on.

Enormously Useful. Surprisingly Small.

The Tern GSD is designed to carry a couple of kids, groceries for a week, or up to a huge 180 kg of cargo, but it’s only 180 cm long—the same length as a standard bike. With Tern’s best-in-class folding technology, it also packs down small enough to fit in an MPV, a city apartment or small storage unit. Plus, it can be adjusted to fit riders from 150 – 195 cm tall —so the whole family can share it.

A Utility Bike Designed to Fit Your Life.

Despite everything it can haul, the GSD is actually the same length as a regular bike, so it fits anywhere a standard bike can. But there are lots of places a standard bike doesn’t fit. Tern have designed it small enough to store in a city apartment, fit in a lift, or take on a train for weekend getaways.

Fits the Whole Family

Minivans don’t come in S, M, L & XL to fit the driver, so why do bicycles? The GSD is designed to be shared by a family. It adjusts to fit mum, dad or the kids—any rider from 150 – 195 cm. Best of all, thanks to Tern’s adjustable stem, and compact geometry, adjusting the bike only takes seconds.

Going on holiday?

No problem with the GSD. This electric bike has been to designed to pack down to 1/3rd its volume in only 10 seconds and fit into the back of an MPV. So put it in the car until you get to your destination, and then head out and explore.

Carries the Family

With room for up to two Thule Yepp Maxi child seats, plus grocery space to spare, the GSD lets you ditch the minivan. The low step-thru frame makes getting on and off much safer, and with an extra low center of gravity, the GSD is stable and steady.

About the Tern brand

Tern is a very modern brand which was born as an off-shoot of the Dahon bicycle brand which you may be familiar with. Tern has taken its inspiration from the Arctic Tern - a small bird which is capable of travelling extremely large distances. Its bikes have the same capability. They're compact bikes - and though they wouldn't be described as 'lightweight' - they do store away easily, pack into cars well and have enough power to go as far as any full size electric bike. 

We like the way they are set up to be utility vehicles, capable of carrying large amounts of cargo or children on the back., The wheels are nice and wide for comfort and traction and yes, believe the hype, we have had customers who have bought Tern bikes and then have been able to sell their cars!
