The Verge S8i may very well be Tern’s best overall folder. Designed around a Gates belt drive and an Alfine 8 speed internally geared hub transmission, it is quiet, clean, and practically maintenance free. The combination of an adjustable handlebar stem, the long 41″ wheel base, and the wide, smooth rolling Schwalbe Big Apple tires makes it one of the most comfortable, stable rides you’ll ever have. All this is achieved without compromising the quickness and agility that Tern is known for. The addition of a front hub dynamo, L.E.D. lighting system, fenders, and rear rack make it practical as well. This bike is a solid, durable addition to the Verge line-up.
