  • Simply Practical

    The Short Haul is a compact cargo bike that makes it easy to get around town and get things done. Practical and uncomplicated, the Short Haul has everything the modern urban rider needs—and nothing that they don’t.

    A Better Kid Hauler

    The Short Haul has an extra-long, extra-strong, rear rack designed to fit a child seat—so you'll enjoy a stable ride even with a wriggly kid. And the best part? You can keep carrying your little ones as they grow up. Different passenger setups and a 50-kg capacity rack mean the Short Haul will be with your family for years to come.

    More Cargo Space

    With a cargo capacity (max gross vehicle weight) of 140 kg (308 lb) and a whole ecosystem of accessories, hauling is as fuss-free as it gets. Whether it's the weekly groceries, supplies for your gardening project, or even a bigger passenger, the Short Haul is built for the task.

    A Better Ride

    Most cargo bikes are big and unwieldy, or a bit of a pain to ride. The Short Haul is compact and nimble, with a long wheelbase and low center of gravity that help deliver a super stable ride, even when carrying heavy loads. It's the kind of bike you'll find yourself using every day, even if you don't need to do any hauling.

    One Size Fits Most

    Even with single frame size, the Short Haul will fit most riders from 147 - 190 cm (4'10" - 6’3"). weighing up to 120 kg (264 lb).

    Safe & Reliable

    If like us, you see cargo bikes as a real car replacement, then you probably expect them to be just as safe and reliable as a car. At Tern, our goal is to create tough, built-to-last bikes that will stay on the road for as long as possible—just as a car would.
