Designed to carry up to two kids, the Tern GSD S10 LX does the work of a full size longtail without the footprint. It’s the same length as a regular bike, and you can store it vertically because the rack doubles as a sturdy stand. When standing on its end, it takes up the floor space of a potted plant. The handlebar folds neatly out of the way. Not only does the GSD S10 LX store small, it’s easy to transport. One or two will fit in the back of a small SUV or minivan.
You can carry up to 440 pounds including the bike, rider, cargo, and accessories, and you have the help of a powerful motor. Capable of up to 85 nM of torque and up to 400% support, the Bosch Cargo Line mid drive motor assists you up to 20 mph, making it easier to transport heavy loads, especially uphill. With the 500 Wh battery, you can get up to 65 miles on a single charge. An optional second battery will double the range. The GSD S10 LX has a strong and sturdy frame that is drilled to accept trailers from Weber, Burley, and Thule, and the rear rack has two Yepp Easyfit windows. Well-thought-out kid and cargo accessories (sold separately) make it even more useful.
Thanks to its unique geometry, the GSD S10 LX fits a wide range of riders comfortably. Specially designed rims and boost thru-axle hubs provide a rock solid foundation for hauling cargo. A suspension fork and seatpost absorb bumps in the road. Wide tires offer added cushion with the reliability of reinforced sidewalls and Schwalbe’s GreenGuard puncture protection. The reflective sidewall strip on the tires helps with visibility. Commuters will love the hi/lo beam headlight, rear brake light, auto locking kickstand, cafe lock keyed the same as the battery, and upright riding position that allows them to see and be seen a little easier. A full chain guard protects the rider, passenger, and cargo from getting near the drive train, and an integrated wheel guard keeps little feet out of the spokes. The GSD S10 LX is suitable for adult passengers. We recommend the captain's chair with the cargo hold panniers in the rear position so you have ample room for feet up front with a passenger on board. (The captain's chair and panniers are sold separately.)
