Enormously Useful. Surprisingly Smaller.
The HSD is mighty but mini: It’s easy to handle, easy to share, extremely comfortable to ride, carries a whole lot of cargo—and all of this in a compact design that’s shorter than a standard bicycle.
Haul With Confidence
The compact HSD electric cargo bike stuns with its heavy-hauling abilities. Load up on groceries, carry a furry friend, or make extended errand runs without worrying about overloading. A long wheelbase and extra-low center of gravity ensure easy handling and stability, even under load. The HSD is more than enough bike for reliable urban hauling.
Room for a Friend
Transform daily trips into exciting adventures by having a +1 tag along. And not just with your little ones. Rated to 80 kg, the sturdy Atlas H Rack is long and spacious enough to easily accommodate an adult passenger. And there’s a wide range of accessory choices to ensure a safe and comfortable ride. Weekend picnics and date nights just got a lot more fun!
The HSD’s smart electronic lock activates automatically when you park, disabling the e-bike system and helping prevent theft. Your smartphone serves as the no-fuss digital key for unlocking the bike. S-Class models also include a high- decibel alarm with flashing LEDs to deter tampering, along with text notifications and GPS tracking in case the bike moves significantly.
More Power to You
Tackling steep hills and accelerating from a standstill loaded down with extra cargo just got a whole lot easier. Featuring the new Bosch Performance Line motor, the HSD now delivers up to 50% more torque compared to some previous HSD models, along with 340% pedal assistance. A new Auto mode can also sense deceleration on a climb and automatically compensate with extra support.
Easy to Ride
The size and weight of big cargo bikes can be intimidating. But the compact HSD was designed to be much more inviting. It’s easy to ride, just like a bike should be. Even when fully loaded, a long wheelbase, low center of gravity, and stiff frame provide enhanced stability and handling. And the low Easy-Step frame design makes it easy to mount and control the HSD at a standstill.
Tailored to Your Life
The best kind of cargo bike is the one set up with the right gear to fit your needs. No matter if you’re looking to safely carry a child in all types of weather, comfortably carry an adult or pet, or haul all different types of cargo, the HSD has an extensive ecosystem of accessory options that can best suit your needs today, and as they change in the future.
Built to Last
Our philosophy is to keep our bikes on the road for as long as possible, not to create disposable products that are built to fail. We start with intentional design choices that make the bike serviceable and safe—and end up with a reliable vehicle you can use day in, day out. Then, we back it up with great local service and a 10-year warranty for peace of mind.
Tested for Safety
The HSD frame, fork, and handlepost were designed and built to handle a load of 180 kg (397 lb). And we turned to EFBE Prüftechnik GmbH, one of Europe’s leading bicycle testing labs, to put the HSD through its rigorous Tri-Test to prove the HSD could handle the stated load, ride after ride.
UL Tested and Certified
The HSD’s Bosch e-bike system is certified to the UL 2849 standard, the most rigorous e-bike electrical test on the market. The battery, charger, motor, and display are each tested for safety against potential electrical system hazards, as well as tested together for system safety.
Tuned by Professionals
E-bikes are complicated machines that require attention and service by trained professionals. So the HSD is only sold through Tern-authorized local bike shops, to guarantee your HSD is assembled and tuned by experienced professionals, and that you’ll always have a place to go for periodic service and maintenance.
