Product Description

The Verge D9 is a trailblazer. Born out of our 451 Verge design philosophy, it has bigger race wheels, T-Tuned™ geometry, and a wide 1x drivetrain. It’s about as much value as we could condense into one bike, and it’s ready for any upgrades you can throw at it.

  • Verge quality, style, and performance at an entry-level price point
  • Folds in under 10 seconds—fits under a desk
  • Rides with exceptional comfort and stability thanks to our unique technology and T-Tuned geometry
  • 451 wheels deliver a full-sized ride with minuscule impact on the folded size
  • Shimano Acera drivetrain, with 11-36T for all-purpose versatility
  • Tern Porter™ saddle for easy shoulder-mounted bike carrying
  • Optional fenders for rainy days

Features

OCL+™ Frame Joint

ROBUST FOLDING TECHNOLOGY

A heavy-duty update to our iconic OCL frame hinge, the OCL+ is built to exceed ISO 4210 and EN 15194 testing requirements. Leveraging the hinge design of the long-tail Tern Cargo Node, the OCL+ features a single-shaft design, advanced welding techniques, and robust gussets, so it stays stiff and strong during even the fastest commutes.

  • Stronger by Design Making the hinge taller and moving the pivoting surfaces outward from the center axis more than doubles overall strength and stiffness. It’s a difference you’ll feel from your very first ride.
  • Smooth Operation The patented design puts four igus® bearings between the aluminum and stainless steel moving parts so the folding action is always smooth and friction-free.
  • Interlocking Joint The front and rear joint surfaces lock together to eliminate torsional movement.
  • Easy to Use Large rounded surfaces on the lever and joint bodies are easy on your hands and allow good leverage for easy operation.
  • Doubly Safe Close the lever and the AutoLok™ automatically locks in place for extra, easy security.
  • Floating Point Technology Patented technology allows the lever to fold flat and brace against the joint for protection in transit.
  • Serviceable Good things are built to last and that’s why the OCL+ Joint is designed to be dealer serviceable. We keep every part in stock and if your bearings ever wear out, your dealer can replace them in a few minutes.
  • Precision-Machined A machining tolerance of only 50 microns ensures a tight fit and eliminates looseness and rattling.
  • Stainless Steel Hardware Cold-worked stainless delivers the durability and reliability needed for daily riding in all weather conditions.

 

N-Fold™ Technology

THE FASTER FOLD

With N-Fold Technology, Tern bikes fold small and fast—in three easy steps. It’s simple enough for anybody to master. And with the handlepost folded to the outside of the package, Tern bikes can also roll when folded for easy transport.

 

DoubleTruss™ Technology

STIFFER BY DESIGN

The rear half of Tern frames use a patented 3D structure we call DoubleTruss to build in extra stiffness. It helps resist torsional forces so our bikes flex less. That means increased stiffness and much better power transfer from the pedals to the rear wheel. The proof’s in the ride.

 

T-Tuned™ Geometry

FULL-SIZED RIDE, COMPACT FOLD

At Tern, we endeavor to build fast-folding bikes that ride like full-sized bikes. Our T-Tuned geometry is the culmination of our commitment. We’ve tweaked the wheelbase, rake, and seat-tube angle of our design to deliver the most confident and stable ride of any bike in our lineup. Ride one and try it. Take your hands off the handlebars if you’re feeling bold.

 

Quadric™ Dropouts

THE USER-CENTERED DROPOUT

Dropouts are often overlooked, but a good dropout goes a long way. Our Quadric dropout is built taller, so your disc brakes are protected inside the frame. The design makes the eyelets for mudguards, racks, and our clip system more user-friendly and accessible than ever before. We even included a mount for a sturdy rear kickstand.

 

Physis™ 3D Handlep ost

THE NEW BENCHMARK

Five patented technologies and unique manufacturing technology add up to the strongest, stiffest folding handlepost available. The Physis uses a special manufacturing process called 3D forging, which forms the post from a single piece of aluminum, eliminating all welds.

  • No Flex To eliminate flex, the Physis uses a massive joint knuckle and a post that gradually tapers from thick at the base to thin. Moreover, it has 150% more clamping height between the fork steerer and the handlepost than common designs.
  • Flux Technology The base of the Physis is machined so it functions as the upper race of the headset. This patented direct integration contributes to the incredible stiffness of the design.
  • Interlocking Halves Joint surfaces lock together to improve torsional stiffness. We've fine-tuned the shape to virtually eliminate squeaks.
  • Redundant Double Bolts Two bolts clamp the Physis to the fork steerer for improved safety.
  • igus® Bearings The patented design puts sliding bearings between the moving parts so the folding action is always smooth and friction-free.
  • Large, Smooth Lever Large rounded surfaces are easy on your hands and provide good leverage for easy operation.
  • AutoLok Technology Close the lever and it automatically locks in place, for extra, easy security—using an aluminum pin.
  • Floating Point Technology Patented technology allows the lever to fold flat and brace against the joint for protection in transit.
  • SpringLock Technology Patented SpringLock technology holds the adjustment rod firmly in place so the locking lever is always properly tensioned and can never vibrate loose.
  • Serviceable Good things are built to last and that’s why the Physis is designed to be fully dealer serviceable. We keep every part in stock and replacing the bearings can be done in minutes.
  • TriSeal Design Three rubber seals keep weather out and the headset bearings functioning smoothly.
  • Precision-Machined A machining tolerance of only 50 microns ensures a tight fit and eliminates looseness and rattling.

 

Syntace VRO Stem

FIND YOUR FIT

Your bike should adapt to fit you―not the other way around. This adjustable stem allows you to position your handlebars further, for a more stretched and aggressive riding position, or up higher for increased comfort.

  • Adjustable Stems are 47mm in length and infinitely adjustable so you can find your perfect fit.
  • Syntace quality Syntace is a boutique German company renowned for their best-in-class bicycle components that are selected by many champion professional riders. They are perhaps best known for their manic attention to detail and brutal testing standards.
  • Light Only 120 grams. 100% CNC machined from 6066 aluminum.
  • Strong Two stems spaced widely apart means excellent torsional stiffness so go ahead and crank hard on your bars with confidence.

 

Velo Ergonomic LockOn Grips

BE KIND TO YOUR HANDS

ErgoLock grips are nice and wide for excellent palm support so your hands can relax during the ride. They also lock in place on the handlebars so they’re always in the correct position, unlike non-locking grips which tend to rotate out of position.

 

Porter™ Saddle

A NEW WAY TO CARRY YOUR BIKE

One of our favorite ways to get a Tern bike up a set of stairs is to hook the nose of the saddle over a shoulder. It’s fast and easy, but the nose of the saddle can be hard. We solved this pain-point by re-engineering the underside of the saddle into a comfortable shoulder pad. It cushions and “grips” your shoulder so your hands are free to carry other things—like a backpack or the weekend’s groceries.

 

Shimano Shadow Derailleur

STREAMLINED SHIFTING

Originally developed for mountain bikes—for extra durability and to avoid catching on trail debris—the Shadow derailleur is streamlined and incredibly resilient, which comes in handy when you need to transport your folded bike. Whether your bike is bagged on the subway or riding in the trunk of your car, everything is neatly tucked away.

 

1x (“One-By”) Drivetrain

SIMPLIFIED VERSATILITY

There’s a revolution in drivetrains across the industry. Thanks to the recent introduction of hyper-wide cassettes from SRAM and Shimano, it’s possible to achieve massive gear ranges with only one chainring up front. That makes 1x an ideal configuration for folding bikes, because it reduces maintenance, weight, and complexity. Enjoy all the range of a 20-speed drivetrain, with none of the complications.

 

Magnetix™ 2.0

KEEP IT TOGETHER

The Magnetix 2.0 uses powerful magnets to keep your bike folded for situations like carrying your bike up and down stairs. With a pull force 10-15 Kgf, the Magnetix 2.0 will keep your bike folded even when being jostled and moved about.

 

Luggage Socket™

CARRY MORE STUFF

Fix the Tern Luggage Truss to the Luggage Socket and you can plug in your choice of front luggage: rack, basket, or bag. If it’s KlickFix compatible, it’ll work.
