Sonder Bikes

Every One Has A Story

Riding is what we do, it is what we love. Bikes for long days in the saddle: mountains, alpine climbs, singletrack, trail centres, off road expeditions, journeys into the wilderness and round the world adventure. We wanted bikes to take us to the mountains, bikes to climb the mountains and bikes to get us back down

Every One Has A Story. What's Yours?

The Sonder Storybook - 2018

Expert Design and Obsessive Build by Sonder bike gurus

Instore or online, we build all Sonder bikes to order. We designed the frame, built the protos and, with our alpkiteers, we've test ridden around the world.

All our bikes are hand-built by Cytech qualified staff right here in the 'Old Factory'. We build, check and then pack your Sonder into our own bike box so you can roll-out and ride with minimum fuss or collect from a store. When you receive your Sonder simply roll-out from the box, fix the handlebars, adjust the saddle height, attach some pedals, double check the brakes and ride. Please allow 20 working days from order for build and delivery.

Try & Buy Online and Instore

Call in at one of our stores for a free demo. Or hire a bike to take away and test ride Sonder on your local routes.

Bike hire is £39 per day or £59 a weekend. Plus, get your money back when you buy a bike. We also offer a delivery and collection service for £30 with weekend hire. Give us a call and book an appointment.

Sonder custom frames and custom builds

All Sonder bikes are fully customisable and we offer tailor-made bespoke titanium frames designed by Neil to your brief. Where else can you design your own custom frame working directly with one of the UKs foremost bike designers.

We hold big stocks of SRAM groupsets and components, Rockshox forks and can build with Shimano, Hope and almost any part for you. Give us a call and we will help spec and build a Sonder. With the same experienced mechanic helping throughout your build you know who to call if there's anything you want to know.

Alpine Bond

All Sonder bikes are covered by Alpkit's Alpine Bond, 123 Day Returns Policy, Crash Replacement Scheme.

We offer a 10 year guarantee on both our handmade titanium and Reynolds steel frames. Our hand welded 6061-T6 alloy triple butted frames and carbon frames come with a 5 year manufacturing defect warranty. All our bikes are built, checked and signed off by Cytech trained mechanics before being despatched to you in a custom-made bike box.

Bike Repairs Workshop

Stores have a fully equipped workshop to repair and maintain your bike. Pay us a visit and we will comfort fit your bike specific to your own physique and riding style with the ideal stem, handlebar and saddle.
