Some have wondered: ENVE has so much know-how regarding aerodynamics and carbon construction. More than many others who build (or have built) entire bikes. Why is there no bike from ENVE?
That question is now obsolete: after the custom bike project, which continues to be available only in the US, ENVE unveiled the Melee in the summer of 2022. And yes, the bike delivers what it promises!
It's aerodynamic, but sensible: that is, comfort has not been sacrificed for aerodynamics. The sloping top tube worsens the cw value, but increases the ride comfort significantly thanks to the longer seatpost possible. The frame tubes are shaped to match the rims and tires to optimize airflow.
And: it is light - the frame weighs just 850g in size 56 - but still extremely stiff, very robust. All that others are too? Yes! But the Melee can be perfectly adapted to your dimensions despite the integrated cockpit. Both stem length and handlebar width and seatpost can be selected individually. And is already included in the price.
Then the Melee takes tires up to a width of 35mm. What has led to the fact that on this wheel even before er market launch a Gravel Race in the U.S. was won. But no, it's not a gravel bike, it's a very all-purpose road racing bike. Fast, direct, aggressive - its place is at the front of the peloton!
What is Superior? Our indication that there is more in the wheels than the pure group name would suggest. E.g. better cranks and bottom brackets from Rotor, better wheels built by us VONHAND and other tuning parts e.g. from CeramicSpeed, Carbon-Ti, etc..
