Sharing the DNA of a cyclocross, gravel and adventure race bike, the geometry has been relaxed for for long day comfort, Camino is designed to get you out there exploring the world.
Whether meandering along the dusty trails of California or racing for the finish of Tuscany Trail, Camino gives you the exhilarating mix of speed and versatility. Light, twangy titanium with a slack head angle and longer wheelbase, Camino excels both loaded and unloaded, absorbing every surface you ride...Read more
Equipped with the SRAM Rival 1 x 11 groupset this build offers great value performance. The 1 x 11 gearing gives a 3.6 - 1 ratio (101.8 - 26.6 gear inches with 44mm tyre). That’s plenty to open up the big alpine passes to mere mortals with enough at the top end to open up on the flat.Read less
Tuned for long days with trail capabilty at its heart. The long wheelbase and 69° head angle make for a stable and confident ride, even over rough trails. Every size has been tuned for a 50-70mm stem so every rider gets direct and responsive steering.
The Camino swallows huge tyres. Ride 700c x 50mm or 650b x 2.2” - that’s most mountain bike tyres covered.
Lightweight, stiff and responsive. The Camino's full carbon fork gives direct steering and smooth braking. It's completely adventure ready with mudguard and rack mounts.
Take anything anywhere. The Camino has mounts for everything you need - panniers, guards and extra mounts for adding cages to the forks. The downtube has triple cage mounts so you can set your bottle to be at a height for easy reach or lower to accommodate larger frame bags.
Clean lines and tidy cables thanks to fully guided internal routing. The Camino also has routing for a dropper seatpost.
A BSA threaded bottom bracket is super-durable and readily available, wherever you find yourself. So it’s not a pain in the bottom bracket!

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.

With its flexible wheel size options and plenty of tyre clearance, there’s scope for building the Sonder Camino AL however you want it. However, as built, this Rival 1 option seems to me to be a great fit straight out the box. If you can’t fork out for this higher end build kit straight away, the ride quality is such that the frame makes a good candidate for later upgrades, and the handling is simply excellent. Unless your heart is set on steel, titanium, or carbon, I can’t think of a reason why you wouldn’t want this bike. I do want this bike, and I’m genuinely sorry to be sending it back.
