Tern has unveiled a new cargo e-bike, the Orox. Designed with adventure in mind, its 210kg on-road maximum weight limit also would seem to make it ideal for urban use, whether it's taking the kids to school or hauling groceries back from town.

The Orox is available in two builds, R14 and the S12. The former is the most expensive and features a Rohloff 14 speed hub and a Gates Carbon Drive CDX Belt, with a claimed weight of 33.8kg. The S12 uses a 12-speed Shimano Deore XT drivechain, with a Shadow+ derailleur, which makes it a touch lighter at 33.2kg. Two sizes are available, Medium and Large.
