Tern launches the Short Haul today. The Short Haul is a practically-priced bike designed to get a rider, plus an extra passenger and cargo, from home to work, to school, and everywhere in between.
The Short Haul is our vision of how a bicycle designed for urban transportation should look.
said Josh Hon, Tern Team Captain.
It’s shorter and easier to handle than a regular bike, but it’ll carry much more. It’s the perfect bike for people who want the function of a quality cargo bike but are working within a budget. It’s simple but very capable.
The Short Haul is a sister platform to the recently launched Quick Haul. That model is additionally equipped with a Bosch electric drivetrain.
I’m happy to see development continue on bikes without motors.
With a max gross vehicle weight of 140 kg (308 lb), the Short Haul will carry an extra passenger and plenty of cargo. The bike’s extra-long, extra-strong rear rack is rated to carry a hefty 50 kg (110 lb). A parent can configured it carry a child in a child seat, an older kid, or even a small adult. The optional front-mounted rack will carry up to 20 kg (44 lb).
Park the bike vertically as needed and as a premium band, the latest from Tern, is built up with the best components. The extra long wheelbase and low center of gravity means a stable ride. That’s also nimble and fun.
