Description

The Melee takes its design cues from our Custom Road, but where the Custom Road prioritizes customization, the Melee prioritizes efficiency and speed. With geometry and handling characteristics optimized for 27 to 32 mm tires, the Melee is a modern road race bike designed to deliver the performance required by competitive racers. The Melee performs in all areas that matter: efficient power transmission, weight, aerodynamics, and versatility. To achieve the versatility demanded by today's road racers, the Melee offers racers up to 35 mm of tire clearance.

Based on ENVE's Real-World Fast™ aerodynamic technologies, the Melee is designed to complement the SES™ wheel line and offer aerodynamic efficiency that places it among the fastest bikes on the road. Matching tube shapes to SES™ rim shapes allows the Melee to effectively match any ENVE SES™ or Foundation wheel. Features such as Integrated Front-End ensure that the Melee is aerodynamically optimized, as the cables and tubes are routed internally to be out of sight and out of the wind. 

At ENVE, we believe that you are only as fast as your fitness allows. To ensure that most riders achieve their ideal fit and desired riding experience, the Melee is offered in seven frame sizes with five fork travels. In addition, handlebar width, stem length, and seatpost setback can be chosen à la carte to ensure the correct fit from the start. These options make the Melee the most easily customizable fixed-geometry road bike on the market.

Real World Speed™ Defined:

Developed in CFD and the wind tunnel, the Melee features refined tube shapes that have been fine-tuned to complement ENVE's SES™ rim shapes and deliver aerodynamic performance ready to battle with the fastest bikes on the road. Full front end integration helps make the Melee more slippery.

Integrated for speed

The integrated front end runs cables and tubes through the handlebar, stem, and headset, where they are secured with ENVE's anti-crushing frame finish kit. This keeps the inner tubes and cables quiet, hidden from view, and out of the wind. With the integrated two-piece Aero stem and SES AR handlebar, the Melee takes advantage of the conveniences of a two-piece handlebar and stem, maximizing the aerodynamic benefits of aerodynamic design.

Integrated aerodynamic stem

ENVE's new integrated Aero stem debuts with the Melee. This stem takes its design cues from the Aero Road stem, but allows cables, wires, and brake lines to run from the handlebar to the head tube. The -7 degree stem is available in lengths of 80, 90, 100, 110, 120 and 130 mm. Compatible with ENVE x K-Edge Aero Stem accessory and computer mount. 

Aero Seatpost

The Melee features an all-new aerodynamic seatpost with a Kamm tail design and ENVE's patented double-bolt design. Available with 20mm setback and compatible with 7×7, 7×9 and 7×10mm saddle rails.

Material Optimized Design (M.O.D.).

We are carbon experts, artisans of our craft, using the best material for the application and making the products we want to ride. At ENVE we design and build to the strengths of carbon fiber. This means running continuous fibers throughout the frame and fork, tapering the laminate and removing excess material to save weight. The carbon fiber is layered and oriented to achieve area-specific performance requirements, such as impact resistance, stiffness and compliance. M.O.D. gives you everything you need, and nothing you don't, to perform when the rubber hits the road.

35 mm of freedom

Given the Melee's racing pedigree, the geometry and handling characteristics are tuned for tire sizes between 27 and 32 mm. However, the demands of the day may require a larger tire volume to achieve greater speed. When the time comes, the maximum tire clearance of 35 mm means your Melee will be ready.

Cyclist-specific fit and tuning

The basis of performance is the fit and geometry of the bicycle. If these two fundamentals are not established, all the space age engineering wizardry and materials in the world will not save your bicycle. You need an optimized fit and adjusted geometry to give you the confidence and comfort you need to reach your performance potential.
Offered in seven sizes with five fork travels and with a choice of handlebar model, handlebar width, stem length, stem rise, seatpost length and offset, the Melee has your ideal fit in mind.
While three fork travels are sufficient for most cyclists, we have added two more fork travels to specifically cater to smaller and larger cyclists in the ENVE family. This ensures that all Melees, regardless of size, offer the same level of responsive handling and confidence required of a road bike.
