Tern Elektron Electric Bicycle
Aiming to design the perfect non-automobile commuter, Tern just may have done it with the Elektron Electric Bicycle. Since it folds down in ten seconds you won’t need to worry about having it stolen from a bike rack: bring it to the office and slide it under your desk instead. It’s also the most compact electric bike to be powered by Borsch’s Active drivetrain, which adds motor assist as you pedal by use of a 400Wh battery to attain a range of between 31 to 62 miles on a charge (depending on how much you help out), handily tackling even longer commutes. The bike is highly adjustable to fit a variety of people (from 4’7″ to a bit over 6’4″) and packed with features including Deore hydraulic disc brakes, integrated 150 lumen Valo lights, fenders for toughing the rain, and an included cargo rack.
Available on Kickstarter later this year. Until then, learn more at Tern – $3,500
