Tern Orox vs. Tern GSD and HSD

While Tern Bicycles already offers the acclaimed Tern GSD and HSD models, the Tern Orox brings a whole new level of adventure and versatility to the table. Let's take a closer look at how the Tern Orox compares to its predecessors:

Carrying Capacity

Tern Orox Cargo Rack

The Tern Orox boasts an impressive maximum gross vehicle weight (MGVW) of 210 kg on the road and 180 kg in off-road conditions, according to ASTM condition 2 standards. With a maximum rider weight of 130 kg, this cargo bike can handle heavy loads effortlessly, making it ideal for commercial applications such as search and rescue, police/security operations, event management, and all-weather cargo or food delivery. Additionally, it caters to consumer needs, from commuting in challenging weather conditions to family camping trips and backcountry adventures.

Design and Size

The Tern Orox features a thoughtfully designed frame that balances compactness and stability. With two frame sizes available, it accommodates riders of different heights, ensuring a comfortable and ergonomic riding experience. The Orox is slightly longer than the Tern HSD, measuring 180 cm, but still maintains a compact profile suitable for urban environments. Its rugged construction and larger rear-rack provide excellent stability, allowing you to tackle any terrain with confidence.

Bosch eBike System
