For adventures into the remote, Broken Road will be an indispensable companion. Simple, elegant lines, mixed with technical details and features. Broken Road mixes adaptable wheel standards, adaptable drivetrain standards, and yet stays bang up to date, with modern features and contemporary geometry.
From it’s multi-use tyre size – from big 27.5+ tyres to 29in rubber to 700c wheels, Broken Road eats up long distance trails with style and comfort whilst being a capable trail centre hardtail. Hand welded from the finest 3AL / 2.5 V titanium tubing, custom formed and designed by us to be your tool of choice for eating up the miles over whatever surface you choose.
Broken Road is designed to work across any terrain, but if you want to mix things up, a short travel suspension fork or alternative front end package – even a fat bike front wheel, will add it’s own style and features.
Our adjustable dropouts allow fitting of various sizes of wheels (we recommend 650b+ and 29in or larger section 700c). The bigger, fatter wheels go over obstacles better, hold momentum and give enhanced control. There is flexibility in the choice of drivetrain as well, either singlespeed, conventional derailleur or internal hub gears.
Broken Road is the off-road adventurer. The one who, without engines and cacophony, can explore the world in a remarkably unique way. The ability to travel further, faster and with less gives the bikepacker a profound advantage. When you catch nature off guard, what will you see?
Elegant titanium tubing
Climb aboard and experience the famed resilience of titanium. No other material is as durable, lasts as long, or looks as good, and Broken Road’s aeronautical grade titanium tubing isolates the rider from shock, gives an efficient ride, and maximizes storage potential. Thanks to the low standover height and rider clearance, you won’t have to make any compromises when riding over rough terrain either.
Designed for optimum use with 650b+ (semi-fat) wheels which help you to tackle any adventure. The plus-sized wheels cruise over obstacles, hold momentum, and give enhanced control thanks to a larger contact patch.
Trail bike geometry
The long wheelbase combines precision and control, giving you the flexibility to adjust riding position easily. The frame is designed with a relaxed head angle, creating the perfect set up for eating up the miles over any surface, and striking the balance between comfortable uphill grinding and hair-raising downhill whooping.
Broken Road mixes adaptable wheel and drivetrain standards so you can ride it how you want. The adjustable dropouts allow 650b+ or 29 in wheels, and either singlespeed, derailleur, or internal hub gears.
Rear rack mount lugs
Rack mounts allow you to load up with panniers.
Titanium is lightweight, strong and durable make it an ideal construction material for bike frames. No other material is as durable, lasts as long, or looks as good. Our frames are handmade and come with a 10 year frame warranty

Sonder offers SRAM and Shimano groupsets. We minimise the chopping and changing that makes so many other bikes a smorgasbord of bike parts. We spec our bikes with pure NX1, GX1, 105 or Force ... and take pride in offering SRAM and Shimano just as they designed and tested their componentry to work.
Broken Road comes as frame only, a pure SRAM NX1 build and a pure SRAM GX1 build.
