    Handlebar

    • Love Mud Aspect Riser 780mm

    • Love Mud Aspect Riser [OEM]

      In general riser bars tend to be wider than flat bars and may have slightly more flex to give a more forgiving ride. As you go into descents and your arms drop below your knees the additional height gained on your front end will help you take control of the steep descents.

      That said you can get all bar types in a range of widths and stiffnesses and front end height can be adjusted with spacers like our Love Mud Rings, so sometimes you just have to ignore the mumbojumbo and make your call on style and personal preference and there is nothing wrong with that.

    • Love Mud Aspect Flat 720mm

      +£0.00

    • Love Mud Aspect Flat

      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!

    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.

    • Love Mud Kura

      +£19.99

    • Love Mud 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.

Description

The Transmitter Carbon is long, low, slack, and fun.

We’ve taken what we’ve learned from the original alloy Transmitter and evolved the geometry, extending the reach, and lengthening and lowering the wheelbase to boost stability and control at high speed.

Designed to run plus-sized tyres, and with a 73-degree seat tube angle, Transmitter Carbon makes the most of every ounce of traction to take you up steep hills like a dream.

A shorter seat tube supports longer drop seatposts, giving better stand over clearance. Combine this with the relaxed, 65-degree head angle, and a flattened, longer top tube, and you’ve got a bike that gives you confidence and agility for an inspiring ride, whether tackling steep mountain trails or shredding the local woodland singletrack.

GX Eagle Drivetrain

Simple, light, tough, and reliable; the SRAM GX Eagle understands that when adventure is on the cards, all you want to do is put your feet on the pedals and ride. No faff.

The 12 speed, 10 – 50 tooth groupset combines easy-going versatility with maximum performance, giving crisp shifting, quiet operation, and silky smooth pedalling feel.

A super wide gear range lets you dictate your pace, whether you’re tackling tough inclines, sprinting on the flats, or letting loose on the descents. An open design facilitates mud clearance and boosts durability.

The GX crankset, with 2 tooth profile chainring, bolsters ultimate chain control, and Flowlink technology enhances chain guiding, increases longevity, and heightens wear resistance.

Geometry and Sizing

Sizing

It is important to get the right size bike, if the bike fits you well 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
