Urban bicycle brand Tern has announced the release of the new 451 Verge range.

The updated foldable city and commuter bikes feature 22” wheels, new T-tuned geometry and the latest 1X drivetrains.

“At Tern, our design philosophy has always been grounded by one question: is this a bike I’d ride every day?” says Joshua Hon, founder and team captain of Tern.

“It’s one thing to design a compact bike; it’s a whole other order of complexity to design a compact bike that rides as well as a standard full-size bike. Thanks to three years of product development and some significant technological developments in the bike industry, our new 451 Verge bikes are designed to deliver a better ride than any other small-wheeled bike we know of."

Tern’s 22” wheels offer ten per cent higher gearing than conventional 406mm wheels, which means that the bikes achieve downhill gearing – up to 102 gear inches on the Verge X11 – using standard equipment.

The larger wheels mean that the bikes can carry more momentum and deliver more rider comfort than 406 models, whilst still remaining small enough for convenient portability and storage.

“Good design is always a game of optimization,” added Tern design director Joakim Uimonen. “Consumers traditionally believe that total folded size is equivalent to wheel size. One of the key insights with our 451 bikes is that although the folded package gains an inch at the wheels, size is saved at the chainring. Overall, it’s an even trade-off in size but a huge boost for performance.”
