Tern Orox: The cargo e-bike you can ride from London to Paris on a single charge

Tern orox adventure cargo e-bike

The Tern Orox is an adventure cargo e-bike designed to navigate challenging terrain over impressive distances. In fact, you can cycle from London to Paris on a single charge of its twin batteries.*

Tern’s Josh Hon outlined the rugged-looking bike’s origin story at its launch earlier week:

“Six years ago, we introduced the GSD with the belief that a compact and easy-to-ride bike capable of carrying passengers and cargo would get people out of their cars and onto bikes. We were right, and we love seeing all the amazing things people are doing with the GSD in crowded cities. But we also realized that there are plenty of places people want to go that are unpaved. And they want to bring their gear. For those trips, we made the Orox.

A capacity of 180 kg off-road allows you to extend backcountry excursions by bringing more supplies. And a range of Tern accessories means you can deck out your Orox to your individual needs.

The Tern Orox will cost from £5,900 when it goes on sale in April.


Cycle touring is a pursuit almost as old as the bicycle itself, and has a new direction thanks to all-terrain cargo e-bikes.

The Orox is aimed squarely at what bikepacking.com describes as ‘a synthesis of mountain biking and minimalist camping; it evokes the freedom of multi-day back-country hiking, with the range and thrill of riding a mountain bike. It’s about forging places less travelled, both near and afar, via single-track trails, gravel, and abandoned dirt roads, carrying only essential gear’.

Do I need insurance for my e-bike?

E-bikes are expensive to replace and attractive to thieves. Every ETA insurance policy includes theft & accidental cover, no-quibble battery theft cover and Cycle Rescue breakdown cover plus many other benefits. Read a full list of everything we include as standard.

What happens if I get a flat battery?

We launched the UK’s first Cycle Rescue service 30 years ago and include it with every cycle insurance we sell. Alternatively, we sell it as a standalone service for £24 per year. If your e-bike or electric cargo bike suffers a puncture, mechanical issue, or even a flat battery, we can send a recovery lorry to rescue you.

The ethical choice

The ETA was established in 1990 as an ethical provider of green, reliable travel services. Over 30 years on, we continue to offer cycle insurance , breakdown cover and mobility scooter insurance while putting concern for the environment at the heart of all we do.

The Good Shopping Guide judges us to be the UK’s most ethical provider.
