Sonder Frontier Frame And Fork
Alloy frame and fork to build up your own 29er or 650b+ mountain biking, trail munching dream machine
Sonder Frontier Frame Only
Lightweight alloy hardtail mountain bike frame to build your own 29er or 650b+ bike from trail centre to wild and remote landscapes.
Hardtail trail centre mountain bike compatible with 27.5+ or 29 inch wheels. Its beauty is in its simplicity, but don’t confuse simple with basic. Clean lines, internal routing make Frontier an exceptional bike.
Frontier is our versatile alloy all-rounder - ride it hard around the trail centre, load it up and sneak off for a midweek bikepacking trip through mid-Wales, pocket your passport and continue much further afield.
The geometry is relaxed for long day comfort but it’s no slouch. The 6061 aluminium frame provides a durable, low maintenance and stiff chassis giving a responsive kick as you demand power when the slope steepens or enjoy feedback and precision through the corners.
Frontier can be tailored to ride how you want it to ride. The geometry and head angle allows capacity to take a 100mm fork or ride fully rigid. So you can have it set up for XC race speed or all-day comfort and put in the miles. Big tyre clearance gives you the choice of 27.5+ or 29in wheelsets. Bolt Through Boost 148mm rear spacing provides the benefit of stronger, stiffer and more efficient wheels.
Optimised for 1x drivetrains, Frontier is available in SX Eagle builds with rigid or 100mm suspension forks.
Frontier excels both loaded and unloaded, absorbing every surface you ride - you decide how you want to pack for your adventure. With a triple bottle cage mount for versatility and multiple boss mounts on the fork Frontier is an adaptable off-road explorer. Fast and stable for trail centre or big mountain days and responsive when loaded up in the modern lightweight bikepacking style of travel.
Wherever you are in the world - squeezing in an after work loop or halfway through an adventure of a lifetime; Frontier eats up long-distance trails with style and comfort with the shameless enthusiasm of a trail centre hardtail.
Internal Cable Routing
Clean lines and tidy cables thanks to internal downtube routing. Frontier also incorporates routing for a dropper seat post.
Wide Tyre Clearance
Extra width between the chainstays gives you the choice of running 27.5+ tyres up to 3 inches or 29 inch tyres up to 2.5 inches.
Boost Axle Width
The Frontier frame is designed around bolt through Boost 148mm rear spacing providing the benefit of stronger, stiffer and more efficient wheels. Seatstay mounted disc brake for clean lines and damage protection.
Triple Bottle Cage Mounts
Fit 2 bottles in their standard location or run your downtube bottle cage a little lower to clear a bikepacking frame bag. Plus there’s an extra bottle cage mount under the downtube.
