    • Sonder Reels

      The surface of our bar tape is luxuriously soft giving you a warm, comforting and grippy steering unit.

    • Sonder Spitfire 420mm

    • Sonder Spitfire [OEM]

      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

    • Sonder Zone 133 / Black

    • 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 Kura 138 / Black

      +£19.99

    • Sonder Kura

      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 Torque

      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 Black

      +£49.99

    • 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.

    • Sonder Reko

      +£50.99

    • Sonder Reko

      The Reko are lightweight SPD pedals designed gravel riding and cross-country mountain biking over longer distances.

      The Reko's platform-free design reduces the overall weight of the pedals to 145g per pedal for lighter, faster riding. Double-sided SPD bindings are easy to clip in and out of and their compact design means they're less likely to clog with muck on filthy winter rides.

      The clip-in design improves the efficiency of your pedal strokes, saving energy on long rides and improving power transfer on climbs, and gives you more control of the back end of the bike.

      +£34.99

    • Shimano M520 Pedal
    • Sonder Contact

      +£49.99

    • Sonder Contact

      The Contact are lightweight SPD-SL compatible pedals with a large contact area for energy efficient road riding.

      The Contacts have a large, stiff platform, improving power transfer for sprints and climbs and supporting your feet for all-day spinning in comfort.

      The bigger contact area of the SPD-SL system is more energy efficient too, preserving your legs for those deceptively savage inclines at the end of your ride.

      The thermoplastic body and fibre-glass-reinforced binding keep the weight down to 148g per pedal, shaving vital grams from your drive chain.

    • Tau

      Bright enough to blind you when you turn it on so you can be sure that other road users will also see you.

      Tau+ front safety light offers 65 lumens of 270° ultra wide lighting with 10 m beam distance.

      Tau- rear safety light will shed out 20 lumens of 270° ultra wide lighting from the red COB LED strip

      Tau is visible from up to 100 m and is water resistant so they will happily brighten your way even on the gloomiest of days and is impact resistant from 1 m.

      Switch protection prevents any unwanted battery usage and battery capacity indicator will let you know when the juice is running low.

      Only 22g including the USB rechargeable battery and LED lights that never need replacing will keep you light and bright for years to come!

      Each Tau light comes with a bigger and a smaller strap to fit with most bars/seat posts and if you need it even bigger, just lace the bands together to make a larger loop.

    • Phase / 400

      +£19.99

    • Phase / 400

      The Phase 400 is our lightweight, yet durable, rechargeable bike light for a midweek evening blast on the bike.

      • 5 lighting modes and a 200m beam distance
      • Versatile: can be attached to handlebar, helmet or cockpit mount
      • Rechargeable Li-ion battery, with micro-USB cable

      Say hello to our sleek, new bike light range: they’re light, durable and rechargeable (and they say hi back). At just 123g, the Phase 400 is the final tool you need to make the most of evening rides. With 400 lumens and >200m beam distance, a Phase bike light will keep you company and confident on your dusk rides.

      The Phase 400 has been made with the roadie in mind: whether you’re on a family ride, a mid-week spin or your daily commute to work, you’re going to need an all-round bike light for the incoming dark evenings. But don’t worry if you end up on a canal path or a gravel track, this rechargeable light will suit you just fine for a short jaunt off-road.

      Flick between 5 lighting modes: high, mid, low, SOS and strobe. The Phase 400 has a maximum battery life of 8 hours and 20 minutes in low mode, so in the case of a surprise night-time emergency, you’re sorted. The 80-degree beam angle ensures you can see and be seen.

      We’ve added in some nifty features, including memory lighting. The light will remember the most recently used mode and default to it the next time you head out on your bike. The Phase 400 is compatible with a handlebar mount (included), a cockpit mount and a helmet mount. It also conveniently charges with a versatile micro-USB cable.

    • Phase / 800

      +£31.99

    • Phase / 800

      As the Phase 800 is especially designed for easy-going gravel paths, canals, and short singletrack trails, it is perfectly suited to the gravel rider. The 85-degree beam angle means you can see the journey ahead, as well as be seen by oncoming traffic or the local gravel gang. 

      • >200m beam distance for dusk riding
      • Up to 18 hours of battery life
      • Memory lighting: the light defaults to the most recently used mode upon restarting

      The light boasts 5 modes: high, mid, low, pulse and strobe. In high mode, the Phase 800 lasts 1hr20mins – just enough time for your local mid-week, pre-dinner loop. On the other end of the scale, the 100-lumen pulse mode lasts over 18 hours! No matter your journey, Phase 800 can adapt to your trail.

      It’s got good memory too: the Phase 800 remembers your most recently used mode and defaults to it the next time you turn it on. Once you’ve finished shredding up the local gravel, don’t forget to recharge your light. It just needs a handy micro-USB cable to be ready for when you’re next raring to ride.

    • Hadron Hadron

      +£79.99

    • Hadron

      At a whopping 1,800 lumens, the Hadron shines like two twin suns on the front of your bars, allowing you to ride at daytime speeds long after the light fails.

      • Max power of 1,800 lumens with a wide beam angle
      • 6 different lighting modes to tailor to your riding
      • Remote control for swapping between modes at speed

      The Hadron uses twin Cree LEDs to provide a wide, bright beam that stretches well over 200m. This provides a ridiculous amount of night-time visibility so you can tackle tight and twisty singletrack at speed. It also comes with an optional remote control, allowing you to easily swap between lighting modes without needing to take your hands off the brake levers.


      With 6 different lighting modes, the Hadron’s brightness can be effectively tailored to your ride length, terrain and light levels. The lowest brightness Pulse mode runs for a massive 50 hours If you need to save battery on the roads or smoother sections. Plus, the twin bulbs are much more energy efficient than single bulb set-ups.


      The Hadron is housed in a durable 6063 alloy casing to protect your light from crash damage and an IPX6 rating is sufficiently waterproof for all-weather riding. An output jack on the Hadron means you can also use its large 6,700mAh lithium ion battery to charge your GPS or phone if you find yourself out of juice on mid-trip.
