    Handlebar

    • Love Mud Hurricane 42cm

    • Love Mud Hurricane

      Get down in the drops and take your adventure to the road with these classic aluminium drop bars.

      Hurricane is a reliable bar for your road based adventures. Made from 6061-T6 grade aluminium and with a 70mm reach and 120mm drop and weigh 320 grams. A tried and tested design that will provide comfort and control as you eat up the miles.

    • 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.

    • Sonder Spitfire 42cm

      +$0.00

    • Sonder Spitfire

      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.

    Saddle

    • Love Mud Abode / 138

    • 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.

    • Sonder Kura 138 / Black

      +$24.99

    • 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

      +$0.00

    • 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.

    • Love Mud Sideblade Left Entry / Black

      +$5.99

    • Love Mud Sideblade

      The Sideblade bottle cage not only gives your water bottle a lovely, secure hug, but its side loading system makes it easier to access when you need a drink, making staying hydrated a joy even when you've got a load of frame bags to work around!

      The Side blade is geared at letting you get to your water when you've got a bike packed up with frame bags, this means that it's also ideal for compact and full-sus frames where a standard loading bottle cage system just won't fit, you can choose which side you'd like to access your bottle by with a twist of the cage in the mount before your ride.

      Made of polycarbonate, the Sideblade is also super light and super duper tough - hooray!
