Tern HSD P5i (Gen2)


The Tern HSD is “Mighty But Mini”. Tern have updated the HSD to their Gen 2 models which can carry an astonishing 80kg on the back – so you can give another adult a lift if you like! It’s a brilliant utility bike with a huge range of compatible accessories, whether you’re carrying a child or adult on the rear rack, shopping and daily life stuff, or perhaps you are a tradesperson or run a business where you need to haul up to 20kg on the front too.

With a low centre of gravity and fat, comfy 20 inch wheels you’ll find carrying everything a breeze. We know that occasionally customers pop a second child on the back although it’s designed to safely carry one. However, you can easily tow a trailer with the HSD. The excellent Bosch Performance line (75nm)? e-assist just eats up any hills and stops you getting tired. Teamed up with the Duo Stand for stability, Clubhouse Mini for older kids, and Storm-box Mini for extra carrying space and weather protection. The Storm Shield Mini is also an option for extra cosiness!

The P5i model is our favourite: it’s the ‘in-between’ model of the Generation 2 series. It’s not the cheapest? model and it’s not the most expensive S00 model, it’s “just right” in the middle. With a Gates Carbon Belt Drive instead of a chain, coupled with Shimano’s Nexus 5 speed E-bike specific hub gear, it’s a very smooth ride, convenient when you have to stop before changing down gears (as you can change gears when at a standstill), and pretty low maintenance too. The excellent hydraulic disc brakes will stop you promptly when required and the suspension front forks together with the adjustable handlebars help it be a very comfy ride.
