Tern Bicycles - South Africa

Portable Transport for the Human Race
We are the proud official importers and distributors of Tern Bicycles in South Africa.
Tern Bicycles are one of the world's leading bicycle companies and design and manufacture quality bikes specially for urban transport with a focus on portability and utility. Tern Bicycles are beautiful urban bikes that just so happen to fold up.

Joshua Hon founded Tern Bicycles in 2011. Compared to other folding bike brands, Tern folding bikes use an improved hinge design and nicer components to offer a range of folding bicycles that are not only more easily serviced, but generally provide a superior ride quality.
