Tern Verge S8i
This item is currently not available.


The Verge S8i is the world's most versatile ultra-low-maintenance folding bike. It's designed around a Gates belt drive and Shimano's 8-speed internal-gear Alfine hub. 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 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
- Cargo Rack for hauling up to 25kg (55lb)
