Tern Eclipse S18 folding Bike integrated with Lighting and Pumping

Generally, the folding bicycles can be a convenient option for those with limited storage space or whose trips partially involve another form of transport..

 Now, Taiwanese folding bike manufacturer Tern has a new bike that it believes can "redefine the folding bicycle category" with no compromise to performance. 

The Eclipse S18 also offers a number of integrated technologies, including a self-powered lighting system and seat post pump.

Tern senior product manager said, "With the Eclipse S18 we set out to design a bike for the hardest-of-the-hard urban riders i.e.  the kind of people who ride through rain or snow, who have seriously under-funded local road repairs, or who haul their recycling by bike."

BioLogic PostPump 2.0

This bike does offer a few technologies that seem sure to be helpful. To prevent the rider from getting stranded by a flat tire, the S18 comes complete with a BioLogic PostPump 2.0, which packs a bicycle pump into the seat post.

You're pretty unlikely to venture out on a bike ride without your seat, so you're pretty unlikely to forget the PostPump. It works just like other full-size floor pumps, only it uses the saddle in place of the typical T-handle. The Red Dot-awarded pump, built for Tern, should work much faster than small, portable pumps and is compatible with both Schrader and Presta valves.

Valo 2 lighting system

In addition, another  technology integrated into the Eclipse S18 is the Valo 2 lighting system, which is developed with the help of Finnish lighting company Herrmans. The 41-lux, 150-lumen front light is integrated directly into the tool-free adjustable stem to help ward off theft..

The Valo 2 system is powered by the 2012 Eurobike Award-winning BioLogic Joule 3 hub dynamo, which both Tern and BioLogic claim is one of the lightest and most efficient dynamo hubs on the market.

The Eclipse S18 appears to be a solid option for urban cyclists that ride hard, sometimes into the night, but prefer the flexibility of a bike that folds down to a compact size.

 The bike, which rides on 20-inch Schwalbe Big Apple tires, will ship in the fourth quarter of this year for US$2,100.
