    Handlebar

    • 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 Love Mud 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.

    • Love Mud Aspect Flat 720mm

      +£0.00

    • Love Mud Aspect Flat

      Flat bars help you keep the front end of your bike low, allowing you to get the weight over your front wheel when climbing and giving you more control in cornering.

      Our flats have a 5˚ rise so technically we should call them flatish, but if you really need them to be totally flat just rotate in the stem clamp!

    Saddle

    • Love Mud Kura Black

    • Love Mud 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.

      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.

      The Sideblade bottle cage not only gives your water bottle a lovely, secure hug, but its side loading system makes it easier to access when you need a drink, making staying hydrated a joy even when you've got a load of frame bags to work around!

      The Side blade is geared at letting you get to your water when you've got a bike packed up with frame bags, this means that it's also ideal for compact and full-sus frames where a standard loading bottle cage system just won't fit, you can choose which side you'd like to access your bottle by with a twist of the cage in the mount before your ride.

      Made of polycarbonate, the Sideblade is also super light and super duper tough - hooray!

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 Lyrik, 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.

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
X-Large
Riders of 6ft 2in +
