The Vektron is built to make travelling around the city as convenient as possible. Here you have a strongly built frame, with a high efficiency motor and tough, easy-rolling tyres; everything you need to have a reliable runaround that also folds away for storage.
Motor of Choice
Where the Vektron beats its competitors is that has a crank drive motor, rather than a hub drive motor. Crank drives are the more modern, (much) more efficient of the two motor styles so you'll get many more miles between battery charges. A crank drive motor, like the Bosch Active Line Plus motor on this model, also give you a natural cycling feeling, which most of our customers prefer.
A distinctive feature of Tern's bikes are the rear rack. These are integrated with the main bicycle frame and are much longer than your average rear rack. This means you can carry an awful lot of stuff; an extra waterproof jacket, your charger, refreshements, or shopping!
Summary: The Vektron S10 is the all-star of the folding e-bike class. For someone who wants to invest in a folding bike that has the assuringly high quality of a Tern frame and the Bosch motor system.
As with all our e-bikes, this is available to test-ride. Contact your nearest showroom to reserve your slot.

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!
