We build bikes with an eye to changing the world. Or at least the way that folks get around. Our bikes bring together all the things people need to drive less and ride more.
CHAMPIONING THE BICYCLE
At home, we enable our own employees to bike to work with free bicycles, showers, and changing rooms. Further afield, we partner with municipal transit authorities to make it easier to carry bikes on public transportation. And we actively participate in cycling associations to support people who want to use bicycles as a healthier, greener form of transportation.
One of our favorite mottos: Aim high, then aim higher. We design products with an eye towards function and long-lasting durability. But we don’t mind that they also get recognition from top international design & innovation awards.
PROTECTING OUR PLANET
A commitment to sustainability is central to who we are. We design our bikes to be serviceable rather than land-fillable. And we are constantly searching for ways to reduce our impact, like minimizing packaging, specifying recycled cardboard, and reducing use of harmful chemicals like chromium.
Vanwaar de naam Tern?
De naam Tern komt van een kleine lichtgewicht vogel.
