The GSD is designed to carry two kids, a week’s worth of groceries, or 400 lbs of cargo, but it’s only 6 feet long—the same length as a standard ebike. With Tern’s best-in-class folding technology, it packs down small enough to fit in a VW Touran or an urban apartment. Plus, it adjusts to fit riders from 4-8" to 6' 4"—so mom, dad and the kids can all share it.
See-and-Be-Seen Geometry The GSD features a relaxed geometry that puts the rider in an upright, comfortable position. Swept back handlebars and ergonomic grips take a lot of stress off the neck, shoulders, and wrists. You’re also able to see (and be seen) over the tops of most cars, which is a great benefit in traffic. With Bosch power, comfort and performance can coexist.
Low and Steady The GSD is engineered from the ground up for maximum stability, loaded and unloaded. We designed it with a 125 cm wheelbase—25% longer than standard ebikes—for confident and balanced handling. Thanks to small wheels, a low frame, and centrally mounted motor, the bike boasts an extremely low center of gravity. Altogether, the ride is a revelation.
Safety First (Second and Third) Cycling is safer when you move at the speed of city traffic. Fast acceleration is a given with a Bosch Performance motor combined with smaller wheels. We’ve developed custom, virtually flat-proof, Schwalbe tires to give sure-footed stability on even the nastiest roads. Add super-bright LED lights, reflective decals, and a see-and-be-seen riding position, and you have a bike optimized for safety.
Stable Standing Parents know that loading kids on and off a bike is tricky business. That’s where the German-made Hebie kickstand comes in. It supports up to 80 kg, with two widely spaced legs for super stable support. So go ahead, breathe easy and use both hands to load (and lock) your precious cargo.
Sell the RV The GSD is an awesome touring machine. It’s got room for six Ortlieb bags (4 on the rear rack and 2 on the front), and a range of up to 150 miles. A bit of careful packing lets you bring a full touring load, together with a little passenger. That means two GSDs let a family of four tour the world, no bike trailer required.
