    • Sonder Aspect Riser 780mm

    • Sonder Aspect Riser [OEM]

      In general riser bars tend to be wider than flat bars and may have slightly more flex to give a more forgiving ride. As you go into descents and your arms drop below your knees the additional height gained on your front end will help you take control of the steep descents.

      That said you can get all bar types in a range of widths and stiffnesses and front end height can be adjusted with spacers like our Sonder Rings, so sometimes you just have to ignore the mumbojumbo and make your call on style and personal preference and there is nothing wrong with that.

    • Sonder Confucius

      +£19.99

    • Sonder Confucius

      Confucius says that you don't have to sacrifice what you love about your traditional riser bars just to get the flexibility of a hooped bar.

      We have taken our Aspect risers and evolved them in to a bar designed primarily for bikepacking. You won't have to adapt to a new hand position so you are not going to lose any control off-road and you can still get out of your saddle and power up the hills like a hero.

      If you do want to move your hands a bit a reduce the fatigue of a long ride, the hoop extends out front giving a choice of further hand positions. The bars also have a slight 'back sweep' so you can sit more upright in the saddle

      The bars have a slight riser but feel free to experiment and rotate them to your suiting. Keep them horizontal, or twist them up slightly to give yourself a streamlined TT style riding position to help you battle across a windblown Tierra del Fuego.

      Strength is not compromised as the main load bearing section of the bar is a single piece. Got gadgets? Confucius loves gadgets, and with the out-front hoop you can free up the bar around the stem. Simply attach your Garmin, 3000 lumen torches or mascots to the hoop and they will still be well within reach, maybe at an even better viewing angle and sit above your handle bar luggage.

      Take your bikepacking into the mountains; Confucius is a bar that gives you more control than a tradional swept back bar on technical terrain.

    Saddle

    • Sonder Kura Black

    • Sonder Kura [OEM]

      Adventure cycling is diverse; in the course of a single trip you can find km's of asphalt, traverse rutted grasslands, weave through thickly forest singletrack, climb loose gravel track or descend steep rocky trails.

      It is unlikely you are going to find a single saddle position for all of this terrain. With this in mind Kura has a flat longitudinal profile with a gentle lateral curvature to give an extended saddle area, allowing you to position yourself around the saddle as you move between road, downhill, and climbing.

      The honeycomb base reduces weight whilst still providing structure and support that adapts and flexes with your motion.

      Titanium rails giving 50 mm of forward and back adjustment to help you find your sweet spot. Titanium is more forgiving than steel so provides a little more comfort.

      Slightly wider than our Adobe saddle, it may provide additional comfort for riders with wider sit bones.

    • Sonder Zone 133 / Black

      +£24.99

    • Sonder Zone [OEM]

      The Zone is designed for maximum pedalling efficiency and comfort on longer rides, whether on road or off it.

      • Chromoly rails with suspension system
      • Cut-out shape relieves pressure
      • High density foam seat for comfort

      We’ve selected a flat saddle profile that’s long enough to allow for lots of micro-adjustments to your riding position over the course of a full day on the bike. The nose width allows you to move forward over the pedals on climbs and sprints, and a tapered back enables you to get behind the saddle easily for switchback descents or technical off-road sections.

      We’ve chosen a nylon fibre saddle base to provide a stiff and stable pedalling platform for a low overall weight. This base is connected to the chromoly rails using a patented suspension system that reduces road buzz and improves comfort without compromising on support.

      High density foam stays comfortable for longer, adding to the saddle’s supportive platform. And a long central cut-out in the middle of the Zone relieves pressure on the perineum, allowing you to ride for longer.

    • Sonder Nova 29 [OEM] Wheelset

      Whether you're navigating rock gardens or tackling steep climbs, Novas will consistently give you a boost when the roads are rough and the terrain is tricky. Machine built for precision on Sonder’s sealed hubs.

      Boost: wider, stiffer, tougher

      Nova's boost hub is wider than a standard hub; extra width between the flanges promotes a shallower spoke bracing angle to create a stronger, stiffer wheel. A wider hub also means a shorter chainstay, more mud clearance, and better tyre clearance.

      Wider rims mean tyres work better

      26mm lightweight aluminium rims make this wheelset ideal for rock gardens and technical terrain – you can run 2.2" - 2.6" tyres, which will plump up really nicely to give a broad contact patch for maximum traction and confidence.

      Built to take abuse

      Novas have sealed bearings that are easily serviceable without the need for specialist tools. Plain-gauge spokes have been chosen to keep the wheels super-strong, whether you’re landing big drops or loading your bike with luggage. And a steel free-hub body will take years of abuse. You could go round the world on these wheels.

      Tubeless Compatible

      The Nova 29's tubeless-ready rims mean you’ll be able to run lower pressures, giving you even better traction and control.

    • Sonder Alpha 29 HG

    • Sonder Alpha 29 [OEM]

      Alphas are our performance 29er wheelset for aggressive trail riding. Whether you're riding down Top Chief at Fort William or riding the black routes at Bike Park Wales, Alphas will consistently spin up to speed and keep rolling to help you ride with fluid precision over the trails.

      Alpha hubs: wider, stiffer, tougher, faster

      Alpha’s boost hub is wider than a standard hub; extra width between the flanges promotes a shallower spoke bracing angle to create a stronger, stiffer wheel. A wider hub also means a shorter chainstay, more mud clearance, and better tyre clearance. To make them faster we’ve used a 6 pawl freehub, which gives 120 points of engagement for immediate response when you turn the pedals (most hubs only have 60, which means you have to turn the pedals further before engaging the freehub). Oh, and the hubs sound amazing! Finally, sealed cartridge bearings just keep rolling and rolling.

      Wider rims mean tyres work better

      30mm lightweight aluminium rims make this wheelset ideal for rock gardens and technical terrain – you can run 2.2" - 2.6" tyres, which will plump up really nicely to give a broad contact patch for maximum traction and confidence.

      Built to take abuse

      Alphas have sealed bearings that are easily serviceable without the need for specialist tools. Double-butted spokes have been chosen to keep the wheels super-strong, whether you’re landing big drops or loading your bike with luggage. And a 17mm alloy axle make these hubs super-stiff and super-strong. You could race round the world on these wheels. Silk Road Mountain Race here we come!

      Pedals: the humble yet essential afterthought that make all that time spent pondering over components worth the pain. Where would we be without them?

      Seriously grippy, reliable, and stable; Torque gives you the confidence to put down the power whatever the weather.

      A light and tough thermoplastic body combined with LSL sealed bearings around a CNC machined Cr-Mo makes Torque the kind of pedal you can depend on to withstand hours of use and abuse.

      Twelve 4 mm replaceable grip pins on each side of the pedal let you customise how much grip you’ll need and boost durability.

    • Sonder Slingshot

      The wide platform Slingshot pedal is designed to provide the support, control and confidence you need for a variety of riding, whether on trail, gravel or road.

      • Wide 87x90 platform made from 6061 aluminium
      • Double-sided adjustable SPD clips
      • Chromoly axle with sealed bearings

      The Slingshot's wide foot platform provides plenty of support to the foot for more comfortable pedalling over long distances, reducing hot-spots. This additional foot support also gives you greater control of the rear end of the bike on tight turns or technical trail.

      If you're using the Slingshot for mountain biking, the pedal's wide surface gives you a platform to stand on unclipped, ready to bail out if needed, on heart rate-quickening sketchy sections.

      With double-sided SPD clips and a large pedal area, the Slingshot is easy to clip in and out of in a hurry. A clipless system provides greater pedalling efficiency when climbing and more control when descending.

Description

Super fast, super stiff, and all-day pedalable. For local trails, trail-centres, hike-a-bike and enduro duty. Evol keeps coming back for more.

The Evol was designed and tested in the UK – in every season. We’ve chosen custom butted 6061 aluminium tubing for a perfect mix of weight, stiffness and durability. With long (but not ultra-long), low and slack geometry, Evol inspires confidence when descending at high speeds while the low bottom bracket means you can throw it hard into every corner. It pedals well too as the geometry gives a comfortable neutral riding position, keeping your weight central so you won’t waste energy on the uphill slogs (save it for the descent!).

To give that bottomless suspension feel, we’ve used the tried and tested 140mm Horst link suspension with custom tune Rockshox Deluxe RT shock. Combined with the 150mm Rockshox Yari, Evol grips brilliantly on climbs and tracks beautifully across difficult surfaces so you won’t get knocked off your line.

We’ve been obsessive when it comes to the little details that matter too. There’s internal cable and stealth dropper routing, clearance for 29 x 2.6 tyres and proper space for a bottle.

Simply put, the Evol is our dream built into a custom-butted alloy reality. An enthusiastic and capable Enduro-lite trail bike designed for enhanced fun-factor as you’re ragging it round the trail. You could take the Evol to an Enduro race, but it’s equally at home on a long day at the local trails.

Features

Goldilocks Geometry

Long, slack and low geometry for a confidence inspiring and forgiving ride. Pedals well too, with more neutral geometry keeping your weight central on the climbs.

Metric Shock Standard

Designed around metric shock sizing standard, with lengthened shocks and shorter strokes that increase bushing overlap for more smooth, supple, sensitive and reactive suspension action.

Horst Link Suspension Design

The tried and tested Horst link suspension design allows the suspension to stay active when braking.

Tyre Clearance

Clearance for up to 29 x 2.6in tyres.

Internal Cable Routing

Internal routing in the front triangle for clean lines; threaded bottom bracket shell.

Geometry and Sizing

Sizing

It is important to get the right size bike, if the bike fits it will be faster, more comfortable, and easier to handle. You can also take into consideration the standover height to ensure you pick a bike that will be a good fit. If you measure your inside leg and ensure there is a minimum of an inch from the toptube to your crotch this will give you enough seatpost adjustment to find your optimum saddle height. Generally we recommend:
Small
Riders between 5ft 2in and 5ft 7in
Medium
Riders between 5ft 6in and 5ft 10in
Large
Riders between 5ft 9in and 6ft 2in
