Tern celebrates 5 years in business, enters new bike category

Published March 1, 2016

TAIPEI, Taiwan (BRAIN) — Tern is celebrating its fifth anniversary at the Taipei Cycle Show this week, with the introduction of a new non-folding bike line, call Roji.

In four years, Taiwan-based Tern has developed a wide product line of folding bikes and accessories and a distribution network covering 70 countries. 

The new line was developed in collaboration with the Japanese design studio Kitt Design. Roji ("alley" in Japanese) bikes have 650C tires and unusual geometry; they are spec'd for urban riding and Asian body-types.

"Thanks to smaller wheels, they're a great fit for tight spaces, and with simple 1x8 gearing, they're versatile yet low maintenance," the company said.

Roji bikes come in four models, the urban-styled RIP and Clutch, and the classically styled Rally and Gleam.
