Good news! The first batch of the Atlas Kickstand is now on its way to Tern dealers worldwide. We know that this project took longer than any of us would have liked, and we're sorry.
We've put together a plan that will make it easier for current GSD owners to get the Atlas. Here's all you need to know.
The Atlas is a new kickstand that was designed for the GSD. We're always listening to your feedback, so we've developed a kickstand that is more durable, more stable, and easier to use. The Atlas can be acquired as an upgrade by all GSD owners. It will be sold and installed by your Tern dealer.
At the time of this announcement, the first batch of the Atlas has reached some of our local distributors' warehouses. But with the impact of COVID-19 still evolving, the Atlas will be available in different areas at different times. Our factory for this kickstand is gradually getting back up to speed so please bear with us as we work to catch up with demand.
The Atlas retails for £150. But riders in several markets can expect a special price. For pricing and availability information, please contact your bike shop.
Note: The price of the Atlas does not include labor costs, which are defined by your bike shop.
The special low price is our attempt to make this useful product accessible to as many people as possible. And we're really excited to see so many of dealers on board with this idea and helping us achieve that low price.
How Do I Get One?
As mentioned above, a limited number of kickstands is making its way to Tern dealers worldwide. Please DO NOT to rush to your bike shop. Contact them online or give them a call, and let them know you are interested in the Atlas.
Why do I have to pay for labour? Can't I just order it online and DIY?
The removal of the old kickstand and installation of the new one requires professional experience because that area includes components of the drive system. Your dealer's time and expertise are valuable, and they will make sure the whole process goes smoothly and safely.
I see very different prices in my market. Is that normal?
In several markets, local distributors and dealers have accepted our proposal to offer the Atlas at a lower cost. We want it to be available to everyone so we are subsidizing the kickstand globally to make it as easy as possible for as many GSD owners to upgrade. However, pricing varies according to the market, and you may be seeing a different price in your area.
What about warranty replacements? Can I get the Atlas instead of the Ergotec?
Warranty swaps are handled on a case-by-case basis by your Tern dealer. Please contact your bike shop.
Why should I get the Atlas?
The Atlas is very easy to use even when carrying loads like heavy cargo or children. If you'd like to see the Atlas in use, check out this quick video.
