TERE means “be quick, swift and fast” in Maori. TERE is a COMPACT-AERO frame designed to perform and look like a traditional road frame. However, each and every tube profile and transition has been aerodynamically optimised via collaboration with Auckland University Wind Tunnel, the same facilities where Team New Zealand tests their America’s Cup technology.
The TERE has been designed with quality of ride in mind, and that means a well-balanced geometry, allowance for wider format tires and a carefully engineered Toray® carbon lay-up schedule throughout to deliver an engaging ride, letting you push beyond your limits and explore the road less travelled.
As with any new frame design project, the geometry is the foundation to an awesome ride. Using an extensive database of ergonomic data we were able to map out the ideal geometry that matches both the seasoned pro and weekend warrior. The TERE’s geometry has a linear stack and reach correlation from XS all the way to XL just like the human body.
Married to this balanced geometry is a beautiful form factor that elevates the whole experience, employing vibration dampening chain stays and directional high tensile carbon in the BB and head tube areas for power transfer and steering “like it’s on rails”.
Whilst the TERE has been designed to be an all round performer, no short cuts have been taken to ensure that it is also aerodynamic without the inherent penalties of a pure aero road frame, such as excess weight and harsh ride quality. The fork crown has been seamlessly sculpted to the kamm-tail and ribbed head tube to increase the overall stiffness and aerodynamics.
The whole package is finished off with a compliant carbon seat post, aerodynamically integrated seat clamp, internal cabling and a matching stem and headset to create an elegant yet exhilarating ride.

About The Brand
CHAPTER2 is a new performance road bike brand, designed in New Zealand by Mike Pryde. The quest to create something unique follows a road less travelled. At CHAPTER2 it begins with the perfect frame before handing it over to you to put all the pieces in place.
The design and development of CHAPTER2’s first offering took over 2 years of design and engineering from concept to realisation. Mike is meticulous with his designs and quality control to ensure that his creations matched his stringent performance and quality standards and this is reflected in the introduction of the TERE. This is where the story of CHAPTER2 really starts.
