Light, fast, responsive and smooth. Really smooth. The Colibri Al glides up long climbs and it’s an assured and confident descender. Quick when you want it to be, relaxed and easy to pilot when you want to take it easy. It’ll take up to 36mm tyres or 32mm with mudguards. And talking of guards, there are all the mounts you need for guards and racks, which means this really is a bike you can ride every day of the year. And love it.
A 4 season endurance road bike, Colibri Al takes on all road conditions making it ideal for the Fred Whitton or the mountain climbs of the Tour de France. This is the bike for Galibier, Ventoux, Glandon, Alpe d’Huez, Bealach Na Ba, Bwlch-y-Groes, Hardnott, the list is endless.

The winning package of versatility, accessible price, value for money and longevity deservedly goes to the Sonder Colibri, a bike that I found myself reaching for time and again.

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.
