Enve Melee

World-leaders in carbon technology, Enve, produce their first ever bicycle! And the world looks on!


"The Melee is a no holds barred modern race bike built specifically to meet the performance demands of the discipline"

Enve Melee

When you are sector leaders in carbon wheels & components, you know expectation is quite rightly going to be vertigo inducing. Enve had put there whole reputation on the line with the Melee - if they can't do something original and epoch-shifting with the black weave, then put simply, nobody can.

Good (Carbon) Genes

Enve knew this had to be a benchmark chassis. The world is looking. The set-in point for their first frame was to use a full monocoque construction (i.e. one piece). This allows them to optimise performance metrics such as weight v's stiffness as well as control radical tube-shapes.

Real World Fast

This really impressed us - an aero bike with clearance for 35mm tyres. All because Enve know that the contemporary pilot wants to take their hi-mod carbon chassis onto mixed surfaces, albeit once in a while. In the same breath the bike had to have speed and aerodynamics soaked into its bones - hence a notable minimal frontal area, Kamm-tailed tube shapes, and full front-end integration.

System Integration

I am sure most of us are would run an Enve wheel in our Enve chassis. But for the avoidance of any doubt ENVE created Melee’s tube shapes to complement their own SES™ rim design. The wind-tunnel shows that the airflow transitions seamlessly from wheel to frame surfaces to ensure a fast and stable ride in any conditions.

"Melee is made using various forms of uni-directional carbon fibre. The fibre weights, and fibre angles used in the laminate are manipulated to achieve zone specific performance"

What our clients say

  • "A great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."

    London Dynamo Rider

  • "Hey Julian and Phil, I hope you are both well. I just completed a 21 hour week on my new 165mm cranks and I am in love. They feel so so great! Thank you for all your help. I’ve never felt so comfortable on my bike before. All the best, Hannah"

    Hannah Barnes

    National Champion / Professional Bike Rider

  • "The personal service from both Phil and Julian is second to none. They have such a wealth of experience in fitting that they can almost tell at a glance if something is just a little off. It felt as though it didn't matter how long it took to get the best position possible - even for an amateur cyclist like myself. Can't recommend them enough."



  • "A highly personalized and very friendly service, giving good advice and adjustments that are helpful whatever level of cyclist you are."



  • "A very thorough, professional and personal service. I was keen to analyse my bike position after breaking my hip. The custom footbeds and alterations to my position feel really good, just wish I’d come sooner! Many thanks"
