Tern's Trifecta

A good start in 2015 for Tern.. 

If you head to Taipei in March, do make it a point to visit the Taipei Cycle 2015 show at the Nanggang Exhibition Hall.
This is one of the most important trade shows in Asia and a prelude to the 2015 Eurobike show in Germany.
For their efforts, Tern won three awards for Design and Innovation.

Tern Verge X18
The no-frills speed demon

Verge X18 is the latest entry in the Tern 20" Verge platform.
This bike comes with a drop-bar and road bike shifters. Well, in short, it has the appeal of a folding road bike in a compact package.
This bike is a winner of the Taipei 2015 Design and Innovation Award.
It has a pricetag of USD$2,300 (roughly about RM8,200.65 excluding freight, duty and GST).
Based on the the current market trend, I doubt it very much that it would make it to our shores.

X-Factor

Tern's Kinetix X-Pro wheelset
 That one product that sets a new standard in folding bike wheels would be the Kinetix X-Pro wheels.
These are the latest and strongest wheels around for the high-end Tern bikes -- mainly in the 20" platform.
You will see these on the X-series Tern bikes such as the Verge X10, X18 and X20.
Each hand-built and trued wheel retails for USD$190/RM535 (front) and USD$250/RM892 (rear) excluding freight and tax.

Show off your Tern with pride..

The third and final award-winning product is the iF Award winner: Tern Perch Wall mount.
This one also won the 2014 Eurobike Award and is meant for folks who live in high-density homes such as flats and apartments.
It retails for USD$70/RM250 excluding freigth and taxes.

Check it out in Taipei 2015!

The bike show will commence on March 18 (Trade visitors only) till 21 (Public admission) and All the Tern products will be shown at boot M1019a. I'm not sure if Tern is organizing their Annual Tern Social Ride, but if they do, this is one opportunity that should not be missed.
