Sonder Santiago steel touring bike reviewed by Road.cc

By Alpkit>

Stu Kerton has reviewed our Santiago Rival22 Hydraulic steel tourer for Road.cc and praises it for its smooth, comfortable ride on and off-road. Despite its weight, the bike's design and features make it a versatile option for touring, commuting, and adventure riding.

They say

The Santiago combines a classic steel frame with modern geometry to deliver a comfortable, stable, and enjoyable ride across various terrains. With decent tyre clearance, versatile gearing, and hydraulic brakes, it's ready for anything from city commutes to rugged gravel paths.

If you've never ridden a steel frame then you really should. Generally speaking, even in its most basic alloy form the tubes it produces offer a smooth ride and tame road buzz, and this is what makes the Santiago such a comfortable place to spend many miles.

We say

Stu tested the bike on his local gravel trails, combining off-road and tarmac terrain. The Santiago stood out for its exceptional ride quality, blending traditional craftsmanship with contemporary design. The reliability of steel construction, combined with modern features like hydraulic disc brakes and versatile tyre clearance, make it a superb choice for riders looking for a bike that can handle both daily rides and adventure touring.

"The Santiago delivers a comfortable and enjoyable ride over a range of terrains, no matter what the distance."

The Sonder Santiago offers a harmonious blend of comfort, durability, and versatility. Its performance on varied terrains and conditions affirms its position as a bike that not only pays homage to the heritage of touring but also embraces the demands of modern cycle touring.
