At A Glance
- Fast, agile trail centre and big mountain aggressive hard tail.
- Frame: Sonder Transmitter, hand-welded 6061-T6 triple butted frameset_x000B__x000B_; vertically compliant laterally stiff tubing.
- Dropper seat post compatible.
- Drivetrain: SRAM SX, 1 x 12.
- Forks: Rockshox Recon RL, 27.5 B, 150mm travel, 46mm offset.
- Wheelset: WTB Trail Boss and Vigilante.
The signature flattened top tube gives vertical compliance but lateral stiffness - it really is an all mountain bike. That long wheelbase combined with the slack front end, size specific chainstays and a lowered BB give stability and control through the rowdiest of terrain.
Transmitter is designed around Boost 148/110 standards and 650b 2.6/.8 tyres, and optimised for 1x groupsets. The geometry and extra grip from those big tyres means even the most sheepish rider will tackle those steep sections, up and down, like a pro.
Transmitter frames now feature internal cable routing through the downtube, integrated headsets, through-axle hubs, refined dropouts, butted tubes and smooth welds (and 3 shiny new colours).
Transmitter is a bike that just fits in with hard riding. This new version is still the fun trail bike it’s always been, and will still be a perfect partner for multi-day epics or short and fast trail centre blasts, but the changes we’ve made have raised the Transmitter’s limits, so you’ll be able to push the bike harder than ever before!
Why SX Eagle?
SRAM Eagle drivetrains are designed, engineered and manufactured to work as complete drivetrain systems. Its 1x drivetrain is built to be lightweight, strong and intuitive, with the gear range to ride on any terrain.
SX Eagle provides the same Eagle performance benefits as NX Eagle, but at a lower price point. The main differences stem from the choice of materials and finish options, but functionally SX is fully compatible with SRAMs Eagle groupset.

Hand welded 6061-T6 triple butted frameset
Not all tubes are equal, Transmitter uses tube walls of different thicknesses to get material where it is needed and save weight where it isn’t.
Dropper seatpost ready
The Transmitter frame is compatible with a dropper seatpost so even the most sheepish riders can tackle those steep sections head on like a pro.
Vertical compliance and lateral stiffness
The strikingly flattened top tube is the spoonful of black magic we need to make the frameset both rigid and forgiving in all the right places. Stable yet nimble, the geometry has been tweaked to give a spirited ride.
Internal cable routing
Clean lines and tidy cables thanks to fully guided internal routing.
Designed around Boost 148/110 standards and 650b 2.6/.8 tyres
Chain guide ready
Transmitter can be fitted with a chain guide. (ISCG 05 compatible).
