Tern launches its smallest folder yet

New BYB offers compact folding and full-sized ride

The new BYB (Bring Your Bike) S11 from Tern is its most compact folder to date, but one that doesn’t stray from its ethos of using larger 20-inch wheels compared to Brompton’s smaller 16-inches.


Josh Hon, who headed up the project, says about the new BYB: “We spent a lot of time debating wheel size at the start of the project. Some argued for using a smaller wheel, which of course results in a smaller folded package, but smaller wheels come with a compromise in ride quality. In the end, ride quality won out because if we and our customers are going to be on a bike, putting in miles day in and day out, it has to ride well.”
