    Accessories

  • Handlebar

    • Sonder Aspect Riser 780mm

    • Sonder 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 Sonder 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.

    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

      +€29,99

    • 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.

    • Brooks Cambium C17 Saddle All Weather Carved / Black

      +€54,99

    • 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.

    • Sonder Zone 133 / Black

      +€27,49

    • 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

      +€69,99

    • 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.

    Seatpost

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

    • X-Fusion Manic Drop Seatpost and Lever

    Wheels

    • Sonder Nova 29 Wheelset Shimano

    • Sonder Nova 29 [OEM] Wheelset

      Whether you're navigating rock gardens or tackling steep climbs, Novas will consistently give you a boost when the roads are rough and the terrain is tricky. Machine built for precision on Sonder’s sealed hubs.

      Boost: wider, stiffer, tougher

      Nova's boost hub is wider than a standard hub; extra width between the flanges promotes a shallower spoke bracing angle to create a stronger, stiffer wheel. A wider hub also means a shorter chainstay, more mud clearance, and better tyre clearance.

      Wider rims mean tyres work better

      26mm lightweight aluminium rims make this wheelset ideal for rock gardens and technical terrain – you can run 2.2" - 2.6" tyres, which will plump up really nicely to give a broad contact patch for maximum traction and confidence.

      Built to take abuse

      Novas have sealed bearings that are easily serviceable without the need for specialist tools. Plain-gauge spokes have been chosen to keep the wheels super-strong, whether you’re landing big drops or loading your bike with luggage. And a steel free-hub body will take years of abuse. You could go round the world on these wheels.

      Tubeless Compatible

      The Nova 29's tubeless-ready rims mean you’ll be able to run lower pressures, giving you even better traction and control.

    • Sonder Alpha 29 HG

      +€169,99

    • Sonder Alpha 29 [OEM]

      Alphas are our performance 29er wheelset for aggressive trail riding. Whether you're riding down Top Chief at Fort William or riding the black routes at Bike Park Wales, Alphas will consistently spin up to speed and keep rolling to help you ride with fluid precision over the trails.

      Alpha hubs: wider, stiffer, tougher, faster

      Alpha’s boost hub is wider than a standard hub; extra width between the flanges promotes a shallower spoke bracing angle to create a stronger, stiffer wheel. A wider hub also means a shorter chainstay, more mud clearance, and better tyre clearance. To make them faster we’ve used a 6 pawl freehub, which gives 120 points of engagement for immediate response when you turn the pedals (most hubs only have 60, which means you have to turn the pedals further before engaging the freehub). Oh, and the hubs sound amazing! Finally, sealed cartridge bearings just keep rolling and rolling.

      Wider rims mean tyres work better

      30mm lightweight aluminium rims make this wheelset ideal for rock gardens and technical terrain – you can run 2.2" - 2.6" tyres, which will plump up really nicely to give a broad contact patch for maximum traction and confidence.

      Built to take abuse

      Alphas have sealed bearings that are easily serviceable without the need for specialist tools. Double-butted spokes have been chosen to keep the wheels super-strong, whether you’re landing big drops or loading your bike with luggage. And a 17mm alloy axle make these hubs super-stiff and super-strong. You could race round the world on these wheels. Silk Road Mountain Race here we come!

    • Sonder Reko

      The Reko are lightweight SPD pedals designed gravel riding and cross-country mountain biking over longer distances.

      The Reko's platform-free design reduces the overall weight of the pedals to 145g per pedal for lighter, faster riding. Double-sided SPD bindings are easy to clip in and out of and their compact design means they're less likely to clog with muck on filthy winter rides.

      The clip-in design improves the efficiency of your pedal strokes, saving energy on long rides and improving power transfer on climbs, and gives you more control of the back end of the bike.

      The Sonder Front Fender protects you from excessive mud splatter on wet, mucky trails. These lightweight plastic mudguards don’t require any special fixings on your bike and can be strapped straight onto your forks with 4 cable ties (supplied).

      Made from durable polypropylene, if the Fender does meet its end, it can be easily recycled by most councils or at your local recycling centres.

Description

Super fast, super stiff, and all-day pedalable. For local trails, trail-centres, hike-a-bike and enduro duty. Evol keeps coming back for more.

The Evol was designed and tested in the UK – in every season. We’ve chosen custom butted 6061 aluminium tubing for a perfect mix of weight, stiffness and durability. With long (but not ultra-long), low and slack geometry, Evol inspires confidence when descending at high speeds while the low bottom bracket means you can throw it hard into every corner. It pedals well too as the geometry gives a comfortable neutral riding position, keeping your weight central so you won’t waste energy on the uphill slogs (save it for the descent!).

At a glance

  • SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed groupset
  • Rockshox Yari RC fork
  • Rockshox Deluxe Select+ RT shock
  • Sonder Nova 29" wheelset

We’ve been obsessive when it comes to the little details that matter too. There’s internal cable and stealth dropper routing, clearance for 29 x 2.6" tyres and proper space for a bottle.

Simply put, the Evol is our dream built into a custom-butted alloy reality. An enthusiastic and capable Enduro-lite trail bike designed for enhanced fun-factor as you’re ragging it round the trail. You could take the Evol to an Enduro race, but it’s equally at home on a long day at the local trails.

Features

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 +
