    Accessories

  • Handlebar

    • Sonder Aspect Flat 720mm

    • 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!

    Saddle

    • Sonder Abode Black / 158

    • Sonder 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

      +$59.99

    • Sonder Kura [OEM]

      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 Zone 133 / Black

      +$29.99

    • 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.

    • Brooks B17 Saddle Standard / Black

      +$119.99

    • Brooks B17 Saddle

      Manufactured in the UK, a tough 5mm thick leather top is stretched from a thin metal cantle plate at the rear, over the rails to the nose piece and secured by rivets. This durable leather top eventually wears to the shape of the user’s ‘sit bones’ for a superior riding experience. With the right leather-care a Brooks saddle can easily last a lifetime of riding.

      It may seem counterintuitive, but firm and less cushioned saddles are proven to reduce friction while cycling which protects against chafing and rubbing. Should the hammock-like design of the saddle start to sag too much, the leather can be re-tensioned by tightening a bolt in the nose piece.

    • Brooks Cambium C17 Saddle All Weather Carved / Black

      +$109.99

    • Brooks Cambium C17 Saddle

      Not the chafe. The dreaded chafe. Once it begins, there’s no stopping the creep along your bum cheeks, every slight movement adding to the sting.

      Banish bum cheek blues with the Cambium C17. Based on the underlying structure of the classic Brooks B17 leather saddle, the Cambium C17 uses a vulcanised rubber base and organic cotton canvas upper for the top. Unlike leather, the top material is waterproof, completely maintenance-free, and eliminates the wearing-in process of a leather saddle.

      The saddle top is hung over the nose piece, rails and rear metal cantle like a hammock. This design, when combined with the saddle’s supple materials, allows the saddle to move with the rider, reducing chafing whilst still providing support. The C17 Cambium is narrower and a little racier in design than the B17.

    Seatpost

    • Sonder Seatpost 31.6mm / 400mm

    • 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.

    • X-Fusion Manic Drop Seatpost and Lever 31.6mm / 125mm

      +$149.99

    • X-Fusion Manic Drop Seatpost and Lever

    • 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.

      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 6066 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 +
