Explore more. El Camino is the electric version of our award-winning Camino gravel bike.
With the same long-distance capabilities as its non-electric counterpart, El Camino doesn't compromise agility, speed or comfort. It's confidence-inspiring over the rough stuff and handles well whether loaded or unloaded.
Born for Britain's B-roads and bridleways, it's ideal for the mixed terrain of multi-day adventures - think the 350km long King Alfred or 230km West Kernow Way.
El Camino is to explore more. More miles, more climbs, more fun.
The stand-out feature is its smooth whole-bike riding experience thanks to the latest Kynamic BC250 system. El Camino has a torque sensor in the bottom bracket gauging pedal power and flowing in assistance to match your efforts for a natural ride feel.
Weighing just 3kg more than the non-electric Camino, it's lightweight enough to lift over a locked gate, load on a roof rack, or carry to your hotel room at your chosen overnight stop.
El Camino is powerful. Its integrated control panel comes with 3 power settings. Choose your heart rate as you ride: low power for all-day continual assistance, middle power for a sweat-free ride to work, or max power for a 20-mile blast around a local loop.
We balance weight, ride feel and performance with a 250Wh battery housed in the downtube and a 250W rear hub motor to give 45Nm of driving force and a real-life range of up to 70km of assisted riding. Enough for long day rides without significant weight penalty.
The battery complies with all US and EU regulations and does not contain minerals from conflict zones.
A range of over 120km is realistic with the 180Wh range extender that fits in a standard bottle cage, which will be available separately from June 2024.
El Camino is easy to ride unpowered. Its lightweight and drag-free drive allows you to ride at your road ride speed without assistance. El Camino is designed to invoke a joy-filled ride with power on and off, unlike other e-bikes. UK and EU law states that electric power can only assist up to 15.5mph, so we've obsessed over the details to create a bike that doesn't hold you back on speed.
El Camino has ample tyre clearance of up to 50mm and comes with Alpha EX wheelsets. We build the wheels ourselves to our exacting standards, with strong Sapim e-bike rated spokes - 32 hole rear and 28 hole front eyeleted rims. The rear hub drive features a Shimano HG freehub as standard and is compatible with 11-speed cassettes.
El Camino boasts multiple bottle cage and rack mounts for unlimited bikepacking configurations, and internal cable routing completes the signature aesthetic of our Camino family.
El Camino shares the same progressive geometry as our award-winning Camino. Long and low; it is agile, quick and comfortable and made with 6061 heat treated aluminium. El Camino is adventure ready with 50mm tyre clearance and internal cable routing, plus multiple bottle cage mounts for unlimited bikepacking options.
Kynamic BC250 hub drive technology is designed for gravel and road. Reliable and serviceable, it pushes you along without the wear to the chain, derailleurs or cassettes that can be a feature of some mid-drive systems. The drag-free system maintains a comfortable ride with or without assistance.
Kynamic is a billion-dollar bike business with warehousing in Europe that can provide spares and replacement parts across Europe within 48 hours should it be necessary. The system is serviceable by Sonder and most, if not all, local bike shops. The 250Wh battery housed in the downtube and a 250W rear hub motor give 45Nm of driving force and a real-life range of up to 70km of assisted riding. Enough for long day rides without significant weight penalty. The battery complies with all US and EU regulations and does not contain minerals from conflict zones. A range of over 120km is realistic with the 180Wh range extender that fits in a normal bottle cage; which will be available separately from June 2024.
The integrated control panel has a 1.3" OLED display and controls to show current speed, average speed, max speed, ride time, ride distance, odometer. The simple menu lets you change units and view between mph/kmph and shows battery level while on the move.
