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

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 10 working days from order for build and delivery.
