      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.

Description

Camino Al is built for those moments when the road turns into trail and the bridleway drops off into single track. Spritely and comfortable on the tarmac with enough in reserve to explore off-road trails, it transforms your riding experience and turns dead ends into possibilities.

Capable, tough and quick aluminium adventure bike for exploring the world.

At a glance
  • Capable, durable, and quick aluminium adventure gravel bike
  • Frame: Sonder Camino Alloy Frame
  • Fork: Sonder Camino Alloy Fork
  • Drivetrain: SRAM Apex1/ 1 x 11 / 11-42
  • Brakes: Tektro MD-C310 mechanical disc brakes
  • Wheelset: Sonder Nova 700c Wheelset / Shimano

Infused with DNA from cyclocross, gravel, and adventure race bikes, the Camino’s relaxed geometry was designed for long day comfort, with a longer wheelbase, slacker head angle and lengthened headtube for a more natural riding position.


A low bottom bracket and short chainstays make it agile through the corners whilst the slackened head angle inspires confidence when descending. The aluminium frame is tough enough to take a knock or two, so you can lose yourself in the journey and push the technical envelope of your travel or even your commute.

Effortlessly adaptable, the Camino is as proficient on your local trail as it is on the open road, with tyre clearance up to 700c x 50mm or 650b x 2.1” for that added traction and comfort on bumpier terrain. Responsive and exhilarating even when loaded up with luggage; rack, bottle cage and mud guard mounts give you the option to pack up and pedal off on a self-supported ride whenever the feeling takes you. Triple cage mount on the top of the downtube allows for 2 different mounting positions for the bottle cage for extra bag clearance or to fit a Lug-Kage.

SRAM Apex1

SRAM’s Apex1 groupset gives reliable shifting action at an unrivalled cost. X-Sync tooth profile ensures secure engagement between the chainring and chain to stop it from coming off. The X-Horizon derailleur and Roller Bearing Clutch to keep the chain gap consistent and taught, preventing chain slap on rough terrain.

The 1 x 11 gearing, with an 11 – 42t cassette, offers a gear range that is wide enough to cope with any terrain, opening up the alpine passes to mere mortals with enough at the top end to cruise up on the flat.
