Is this the right ebike for me?

The HSD is mighty but mini: It’s easy to handle, easy to share, extremely comfortable to ride, carries a whole lot of cargo—and all of this in a compact design that’s shorter than a standard bicycle.

SPEAK TO OUR EBIKE EXPERTS
"The Tern’s big selling point is that for all its cargo capacity and versatility, it’s actually no longer than a standard big-wheeled bike."
