Whether meandering along the dusty trails of California or racing for the finish of Tuscany Trail, Camino gives you the exhilarating mix of speed and versatility. Light twangy titanium with slack head angle combined with the longer wheelbase, Camino excels both loaded and unloaded, absorbing every surface you ride.
Equipped with the SRAM Apex 1 x 11 groupset this build offers great value performance. The 1 x 11 gearing gives a 3.6 - 1 ratio (101.8 - 26.6 gear inches with 44mm tyre). That’s plenty to open up the big alpine passes to mere mortals with enough at the top end to open up on the flat.
Author: Amanda Wishart - SingletrackWith its flexible wheel size options and plenty of tyre clearance, there’s scope for building the Sonder Camino AL however you want it. However, as built, this Rival 1 option seems to me to be a great fit straight out the box. If you can’t fork out for this higher end build kit straight away, the ride quality is such that the frame makes a good candidate for later upgrades, and the handling is simply excellent. Unless your heart is set on steel, titanium, or carbon, I can’t think of a reason why you wouldn’t want this bike. I do want this bike, and I’m genuinely sorry to be sending it back.
