Tern: Cargo Node - 2017
Tern: Cargo Node - 2017
The Cargo Node is a game changer for people who live in cities. Thanks to 350 lb (160 kg) of carrying capacity, big wheels and an ultra-stiff handlepost, it’s a full-sized cargo bike, yet it folds down to 1/3rd its total volume in only ten seconds. It’s designed to fit in an elevator, so it’s easy to store in an apartment, and it’s light enough to carry onto public transit. It’s the ultimate transportation solution for people who want to live car-free. Now officially approved for kid-carrying.

Valo™ 2 Light
FLOODLIGHTS FOR YOUR RIDE
The Valo 2 is a powerful light designed to help you navigate safely at night. The unique design integrates directly into the handlebars of an Andros or VRO-equipped Tern bicycle so it’s protected from theft and damage. And because it’s hub-dynamo powered, you never need to worry about batteries or charging again. Flick a switch and you have instant light.
We designed the Valo with Herrmans, the Finnish lighting experts who have a side business making lights for massive earth tunneling machines. No surprise then that the Valo is ready for all weather conditions: it’s made from cold-resistant ABS with built in water management channels.
The Valo puts out 41 lux of light, 4x brighter than the European requirement for bicycle lighting. That means you get a bright, wide beam of light that makes cycling at night safe and reassuring.
The Valo has a carefully shaped mirror that optimizes the beam pattern for cycling. It is wide, so you can see potential obstacles or hazards on the side of the road. It is even, without hotspots, so your night vision is not compromised. And it is clipped at the top of the beam pattern so you don’t blind oncoming cyclists or motorists.
The Valo has light channels on each side so that you are visible to cars approaching from the sides. For additional safety, the Valo has two additional LED’s on each side, which light up when you’re stopped at a traffic light.
The Valo protects your sensitive night vision with a small visor that blocks light from the Valo from reflecting back into your eyes.
Patented CryoCore™ Design
LED lights need to run cool to work optimally. If they run too hot over a period of time, they gradually lose brightness. Most LED lights have a tiny button sized heat sink that is used to dissipate heat. Our patented design connects the Valo to the handlebar so the entire bar is used as a massive heat sink.
SEE AND BE SEEN
You need to be safe when you’re out on the road. That’s why we’ve designed our hard-core commuter bikes with 720° Visibility: 360° of active lighting and 360° of reflectivity.
360° Active Lighting
Specially designed lights allow you to be seen from all angles when it’s dark out. Accidents often occur at 90° angles at an intersection so active side lighting is especially important.
Bright car headlights can overwhelm the active lights on a bike and this is why reflectivity is important: the brighter a car’s headlights, the brighter the reflective patches shining back at the driver. Bikes with 360° Reflectivity are visible from every angle to oncoming cars.

Xtracycle Leap™ Rack
