    • Sonder Spitfire 420mm

    • Sonder Spitfire [OEM]

      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.

    • Sonder Bomber 56cm

      +€0

    • 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.

    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

    • 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.

      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.

    • Sonder Contact

      The bigger contact area of the SPD-SL system is more energy efficient too, preserving your legs for those deceptively savage inclines at the end of your ride.

      The thermoplastic body and fibre-glass-reinforced binding keep the weight down to 148g per pedal, shaving vital grams from your drive chain.

      The flat side has 8 replaceable grip pins, 4 mm long, they provide grip in all conditions. When you are ready to get your power on the cleats are just a half rotation away - no swapping your pedals out.

      Jekyll also comes provided with Sonder 'SH-51 style' cleats.

    • Sonder Slingshot Black

      +€59,99

      • 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.

Description

Santiago knows its heritage; cold-worked, air hardened steel is steeped in the history of long distance riding. But with bang up-to-date geometry, Santiago has a refreshing feel that you know will be good for years to come: 450 mm chainstays, 1.1 m wheelbase, 71 degree head angle, a fork rake of 55 and generous tyre clearance. This makes for a truly comfortable, fast, assured bike, both in its own right (audax slaying, winter riding) or when racked up for multi-month adventures.

At a Glance

Features

Reynolds 631 steel tubing

Durable, smooth and assured on those multi-month trips Reynolds 631 steel is an excellent material for round-the-world touring where you’re completely dependent on your bike. We’d be surprised if you needed to get your frame repaired, but it’s comforting to know that finding a steel welder in the middle of nowhere is far easier than getting your alloy frame repaired.​

Traditional bike, contemporary geometry

Santiago’s takes classic road bike geometry as a starting point, with a longer wheelbase and higher stack height for a more comfortable riding position and assured ride, whether you’re travelling light or fully loaded up.

Generous tyre clearance

Clearance for up to 650b x 47 mm or 700c x 37 mm tyres that make your ride more comfortable and give better grip on the bitumen as you corner.

Full traditional mounts

With full rack and guard mountains, 3 sets of bottle cage bosses and extra cage mounts on the fork, Santiago can handle being fully loaded up.

Medium: Riders between 5ft 6in and 5ft 10in
Large: Riders between 5ft 9in and 6ft 2in
X-Large: Riders 6ft 2in and over

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.
