We're TGO's Online Retailer of the Year 2020!

By Mark Roberts

We're very proud — chuffed to bits, in fact — to be voted as The Great Outdoors Magazine's Best Online Retailer of the Year.

We're over the moon to win this award again, especially in this most challenging of years. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do, whether that's designing products, deciding what goes on the website or providing a friendly voice at the end of a phone and the reassurance of our Alpine Bond.

We like to think we know what's important to you because, in many ways, we are you! We know that nothing should get in the way of going Nice Places and doing Good Things. Here's a short word from our CEO, David Hanney:

"Thank you to everyone who voted for Alpkit. It really does mean a lot to me and the team as the TGO awards are the only outdoors award nominated and voted for by customers. Time spent outdoors has had a special importance for us all this year and we really appreciate the support of so many of you.”

Thanks again, and we'll hopefully see you outside in the greener, freer pastures of 2021!

    I am a satisfied owner of a Camino Sonder gravel bike, with straight bars. It “does what it says on the packet”. A great ride.

    My wife is keen to by one too!

    1. Does Keswick/Ambleside shops have a hire/demo facility before we buy?

    2. My wife is 5’ 6” tall and an experienced cyclist. I am recommending a medium frame – would this match your spec and experience of size bike

    3. I see the order books open in July – what is the procedure to place an order please

    4. Hard to gauge, however, what is the approx/expected lead time from a July order to deliver to Cumbria.

  • Hi, I purchased a kanga front harness which works great on my gravel bike but because it’s only a 52 frame it seems that the support bars in the kanga are pressing on the crown of my forks which will wear a hole quickly in the material. I need to cut about 10mm off and that should solve the problem. Can they be removed?
