The GSD is designed to carry two kids, a week’s worth of groceries, or 400 lbs. of cargo, but it’s only 71" long—the same length as a standard ebike. With Tern’s best-in-class folding technology, it packs down small enough to fit in a VW Touran or an urban apartment. Plus, it adjusts to fit riders from 4' 11" to 6' 5" —so mom, dad and the kids can all share it.
