EUROBIKE 2013: Node has 507mm (24-inch) wheels
Publish date:

Tern has launched its new Node bike platform at Eurobike this week, designed around the 507 mm (24-inch) wheel size.

According to the brand, the Node bikes deliver the ride quality of a full-size bike while still packing small for convenient transport and storage.

“Most folding bikes on the market feature smaller 16-inch or 20-inch wheels,” said Eric Lin, Tern senior product manager. “These bikes can fold really small, and if you do a good design job, the ride quality can be great. But the handling is still different from a traditional full-size bike. We’re a bit greedy — we wanted big bike handling with a small-wheel fold — so we developed the Node. Riders get the best of both worlds.”

Node bikes can be folded in under ten seconds and, with Tern’s N-fold technology, have the same footprint as most 20-inch wheel folding bikes. The Node’s larger 24-inch wheels and stiffer frame better accommodates big and tall riders. The bikes are designed for riders of up to 115 kg and 195 cm.

Fitting include mudguards and racks, dynamo light options, Reflex tyres with puncture protection and ergonomic grips.

Two Node models are available: the Node D7i and Node D8, both due to be shipped Q4 2013.
