      Hurricane is a reliable bar for your road based adventures. Made from 6061-T6 grade aluminium and with a 70mm reach and 120mm drop and weigh 320 grams. A tried and tested design that will provide comfort and control as you eat up the miles.

    • Sonder Spitfire 42cm

      +£0.00

    • Sonder Spitfire

      Head down; dig deep; keep on pedalling.

      The Spitfire was made for three things: speed, agility, and comfort, exactly what you’re after when you’re pedalling hard or out for a long day on the road.

      Best suited to a road bike, the slight flare improves handling, so you can put it on your gravel bike too.

    • Sonder Bomber 56cm

      +£0.00

    • Sonder Bomber [OEM]

      Flared drops have found popularity in the cycle-cross and gravel racing communities where control and stability over off-road surfaces is important. For the long distance tourer flared drops give an even greater range of hand positions, allowing you to shuffle around on the bars and reduce fatigue.

    Saddle

    • Love Mud Abode

    • Love Mud Abode [OEM]

      High density foam padding over a plastic base provides comfort and longevity. A v-shaped split at the rear of the saddle allows flex as you are riding, increasing shock absorbancy and reducing pressure on the spot between your sit bones.

      Scooped up at the back with a slight rise towards the nose the longitudinal profile provides a cupped, craddled seating position, a timeless, proven design for distance on and off the road or climbing in the mountains.

      Stainless steel rails give 50 mm of forward and back adjustment to help you find your sweet spot.

      All our Sonder bikes come with Abode fitted as standard.

      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!

    • Love Mud Fender

      Smashing through puddles and over marshy ground can be great fun, but getting a face full of bog water certainly isn’t. 

      You can avoid a wet face with a Love Mud Front Fender. These lightweight plastic mudguards don’t require any special fixings on your bike and can be strapped straight onto your forks.

      Keep the dirt out your eyes so you can focus on the important things, having a great ride.

      If you don’t have the muddy equivalent of a duck's back then the Love Mud Rear Fender is the perfect product for you.

      If you love blasting down muddy trails but don’t like that wet mucky streak up your back quite as much, then the the Love Mud Rear Fender might be exactly the thing you’re after. This lightweight plastic mud guard keeps splashes and spray off your back and doesn’t need any special fixings to attach to your bike. Simply fitted to your seat post and with a couple of ties under the saddle. You can pop it on your bike with minimal fuss and you’re ready for even the wettest ground.

    • Passport Tour Rack

      You don't know the next time you are going to see home, you came here to get away from that. The few meagre luxuries you have with you are tucked away like precious little eggs in the pannier behind you. You have to look after yourself on the road.

      Tour Rack is a solid rear mounted pannier rack with an integral low-rider frame. It is made to support you on your big journeys, carrying your stuff until you decide you have had enough. Funnily enough it plays nicely with our Sonder Santiago and Camino framesets.

      Low riders - other than just sounding cool - lower the hang height of your panniers thus improving stabilty. If you need the extra clearance just pop your pannier up to the top bar.

      An added bonus is a bolt-on “light tube” which provides a secure fixing for most LED rear lights designed to fit on seat posts.

      The Tour Rack won't make your bike look any sexier than it already does, but you will be able to stay away from home longer.
