DESCRIPTION

ENVE - MELEE FRAMESET

In 2021 ENVE debuted the ultra-premium Custom Road and promised that the full-custom road bike made in-house at our Ogden, Utah facility was not a one-hit wonder. Rather, this marked the opening of a new chapter for ENVE as a frame and complete bicycle manufacturer.

Enter the Melee, a purpose-built road racing bicycle designed and engineered to meet the high-performance and versatility demands of today’s road racers. The Melee is a no-holds-barred modern race bike built specifically to meet the demands of the discipline.

REAL WORLD FAST

The Melee takes design cues from ENVE's own Custom Road, but where the Custom Road prioritizes customization, the Melee is designed to achieve efficiency from the second the air begins to flow over its surfaces and is purpose built for speed. Its monocoque design allows for narrower tube widths and refined tube shapes to improve aero performance.

Building on ENVE's foundation of Real World Fast aero technologies, the Melee has been designed to deliver aero efficiency that is on par with the fastest bikes on the road. The Melee features all the aerodynamic trappings expected to achieve top-of-class efficiency – minimal frontal area, Kamm-tailed tube shapes and full front-end integration. Additionally, the Melee’s tube shapes perfectly complement our SES™ rim profiles, harmonising airflow transitions from the wheel to frame surfaces to ensure a composed and stable ride experience in variable wind conditions.

By simply swapping out the SES™ wheelset and tires, one can change the Melee's personality to meet the needs of the day's objective.

  • Melee + SES 2.3 = Climbing
  • Melee + SES 3.4 = All Road Versatility
  • Melee + SES 4.5 = Road Race
  • Melee + SES 6.7 = Triathlon or Lead Out

VERSATILE PERFORMANCE

Versatility has come to define the modern race bike. From criteriums to classics, one bike can do it all. This is largely accomplished with tire clearance. The Melee features a generous max tire clearance of 35mm, with the geometry and handling characteristics optimized for tires between 27mm and 32mm. Run 25mm to 30mm tires for road racing, or choose 28mm to 35mm tires for mixed surfaces.

MATERIAL OPTIMISED DESIGN

The Melee is made using various forms of uni-directional carbon fiber following our Material Optimized Design (M.O.D.) process. Decades of marketing hype around the mystique of carbon fiber has led people to focus on the material itself instead of the process it is subjected to. At ENVE, we design and build to the strengths of carbon fiber. This means running continuous fibers throughout the part, tapering the laminate and removing excess material to save weight. Furthermore, fibers are layered and oriented to achieve zone-specific performance requirements like impact toughness, stiffness and compliance. The Melee, like all ENVE products, has been extensively tested and qualified in the lab and on the road to ensure the intended ENVE ride experience. Our promise is that if you ride ENVE, you're riding the best.

ENVE CHASSIS

When ENVE introduced the Custom Road in 2021, they introduced the ENVE Chassis. Simply, an ENVE Chassis is the canvas upon which you can assemble your dream bike. An ENVE Melee is available as a Chassis only and includes the frame, fork, headset, handlebar, stem, and seatpost, which are proprietary to the Melee.

With the Melee, ENVE's new integrated Road Stem is debuted. This stem takes design cues from ENVE's Aero Road Stem and allows cables, wires and brake hoses to pass through the handlebar to head tube - hidden from sight and from the wind. The Melee also features a dedicated aero seatpost with a Kamm-tail design and ENVE's patented twin-bolt saddle rail clamp.

GEOMETRY

With racing in focus, the Melee has been tuned for response, precision and agility. Seven frame sizes aim to accommodate riders of all sizes and fit needs, while five unique fork rakes ensure that optimal handling is achieved regardless of frame size.

MELEE SPECIFICATIONS

The Melee is compatible with all brands of electronic groupsets. It can be configured with all 1x mechanical drivetrains but will only accept Shimano 2x mechanical groupsets (the Melee requires continuous front derailleur housing, making it incompatible with SRAM and Campagnolo 2x mechanical groups).
