    Handlebar

    • Sonder Aspect Flat

    • Sonder Aspect Flat [OEM]

      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!

    • Sonder Confucius

      +£19.99

    • Sonder Confucius

      Confucius says that you don't have to sacrifice what you love about your traditional riser bars just to get the flexibility of a hooped bar.

      We have taken our Aspect risers and evolved them in to a bar designed primarily for bikepacking. You won't have to adapt to a new hand position so you are not going to lose any control off-road and you can still get out of your saddle and power up the hills like a hero.

      If you do want to move your hands a bit a reduce the fatigue of a long ride, the hoop extends out front giving a choice of further hand positions. The bars also have a slight 'back sweep' so you can sit more upright in the saddle

      The bars have a slight riser but feel free to experiment and rotate them to your suiting. Keep them horizontal, or twist them up slightly to give yourself a streamlined TT style riding position to help you battle across a windblown Tierra del Fuego.

      Strength is not compromised as the main load bearing section of the bar is a single piece. Got gadgets? Confucius loves gadgets, and with the out-front hoop you can free up the bar around the stem. Simply attach your Garmin, 3000 lumen torches or mascots to the hoop and they will still be well within reach, maybe at an even better viewing angle and sit above your handle bar luggage.

      Take your bikepacking into the mountains; Confucius is a bar that gives you more control than a tradional swept back bar on technical terrain.

    Seatpost

    • Sonder Seatpost 31.6mm /

    • Sonder Seatpost [OEM]

      A seat post that is reliable and offers adjustability to help you find your ultimate riding position.

      Membar is all about adjustability. With a twist of your allen key the micro adjustment rail clamp allows the saddle angle to be fine tuned to your ideal position.

      Your saddle can be fitted with minimal faff thanks to a quick release action that allows the upper rail clamp to be released without removing the retaining bolt. The lower rail clamp is secured to the seat post which means that it will not fall in the mud when you are trying to fit your saddle.

    • Sonder Nova XC Wheelset Shimano

    • Sonder Nova XC [OEM] Wheelset

      The Nova 29 XC is our entry level cross-country wheelset, allowing you to run narrower, lighter tyres on longer or less-technical rides.

      • Tubeless compatible and optimised for 2.0” – 2.4” tyres
      • 6061 alloy rims with plain gauge steel spokes
      • Sealed bearings for lower maintenance

      The Nova 29 XC’s 23m internal width is optimised for 2.0” to 2.4” tyres, accommodating narrower, lighter cross-country designs. Pre-taped they’re fully tubeless compatible for extra weight savings and reduced rolling resistance. The rims are made using light and reliable 6061 alloy with plain gauge steel spokes for extra durability.

      The Nova hubs are fully-sealed for low maintenance and are designed around modern Boost spacing standards. The hubs also use a steel body to survive years of abuse.

      With a lower weight than wider MTB rims, the Nova 29 XC spin up to speed quicker and require less effort to keep moving. Swap them into existing bikes set-ups for longer rides or upping your speed on faster, less technical singletrack.

    • Sonder Alpha 29 XC HG

      +£149.99

    • Sonder Alpha 29 XC [OEM]

      The 1,970g Alpha 29 XC wheelset is light, stiff and efficient. Our faster-engaging 6-pawl Alpha hub gives instant response to rider input, and the 23mm KLM14 alloy rims and pillar double-butted spokes help to save weight without sacrificing ride quality or durability. The Alpha XC are ideal for long singletrack forays, shaving time of your favourite flowy red or even endurance racing.

      • 6-pawl hub engages twice as fast than standard hubs
      • Premium alloy rims for strength without the weight
      • 23mm internal rim width, optimised for 2.0” – 2.4” tyres

      The Sonder Alpha 29 XC wheelset uses a 6-pawl freehub, providing 120 points of contact for less free movement and faster engagement. With only 3° between each engagement, the Alpha hubs are incredibly responsive, providing maximum pedalling efficiency on both long rides and short efforts. The bearings are fully sealed for lower maintenance and a durable 17mm hub axle is extra stiff for better power transfer.

      The Alpha 29 XC rims are the highest quality rims we use, employing a premium KLM14 alloy. This alloy provides more strength for a lower weight, and the stiff compound promotes precision handling through changing terrain. These lightweight 23mm width rims, combined with pillar double butted spokes, significantly reduce the rotational mass of the wheel. This saves vital energy over long distance and provides faster acceleration when riding against the clock.

      The 23mm rims are compatible with 1.5” to 2.4 “ tyres but are optimised for running 2.0” to 2.4” tyre widths. They’re also welded, providing a better seal for true tubeless compatibility, and designed to Boost spacing standards.

      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

      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.

We’ve used lightweight 6061 aluminium to build the Dial into a truly lightweight bike without compromising on strength or performance. A flattened top tube provides lateral stiffness for maximum pedalling efficiency and cornering precision, whilst providing a degree of vertical compliance for a more forgiving ride over distance.

Quick out the blocks with its low frame weight, lightweight XC-specific wheelset and fast tyres, the Dial provides instant acceleration and with 100mm of travel up front, carries its speed well over rough terrain. The 430mm chainstays are compact for agile cornering, without being so short that you lose power on the climbs. It's a ride that makes is perfect for long days out where you want more comfort and control than a gravel bike or to die flat out on your local leg-tester.

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 +
