Since the early days people have been making their own outdoor gear and selling it to mates. If you have enough mates the word goes around and hey presto you have an outdoor gear company. Things have moved on a bit. These days there are a few big retailers and less independent shops to sell the equipment. If the big retailers don't want your gear then you have no hope. Well we think we have got the solution. We design, manufacture and source our best outdoor gear and sell direct to you.
Our design philosophy starts with developing products you'll love for longer. Gear you'll keep coming back to year after year. Gear you'll care for and look after.We're unashamedly obsessive in our design process ...high quality, long lasting, durable, environmentally preferable products. Made with a clear purpose and technical benefit but with as much cross-over as possible so they can be used for many outdoor activities.
We go to the alps, we climb, we ride, we paddle, we swim, we run, we board, we visit our in laws.. we produce kit.. we didn't want it to be complicated. Technical outdoor equipment with free shipping and free returns backed up by our Alpine BondIf one of our products does not meet your expectations upon delivery, or if during its lifetime does not live up to the demands placed upon it, please return it to us for repair, replacement or refund.

Every One Has A Story
Riding is what we do, it is what we love. We wanted bikes built for big days out: mountains, trail centres, off road expeditions, journeys into the wilderness and round the world adventure. We wanted bikes to get us to the mountains, bikes to get us up the mountains and bikes to get us back down.Sonder Bikes by Alpkit. Every One Has A Story. What's Yours?
