The Enve Melee takes design cues from our own 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 engineered to provide the performance competitive riders demand. The Melee performs in all the areas that count – efficient power transmission, weight, aerodynamics and versatility. To achieve the versatility today’s road racers require, the Melee provides riders with up to 35 mm of tire clearance.
Building on ENVE’s foundation of Real-World Fast™ aero technologies, the Melee has been designed to complement the SES™ wheel line and to deliver aero efficiency that places it amongst the fastest bikes on the road. Tailoring tube shapes to complement SES™ rim shapes allows the Melee to efficiently pair with any ENVE SES™ or Foundation wheelset. Features such as the Integrated Front-End ensures the Melee is aerodynamically optimized as the wires and hoses 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 fit allows. Ensuring that the majority of riders out there achieve their ideal fit and the intended ride experience, the Melee is offered in seven frame sizes with five fork rakes. Additionally, handlebar width, stem length, and seatpost setback are chosen à la carte to ensure the correct fit from the start. These options make the Melee the most readily customizable fixed geometry race bike on the market.

FIT AND GEOMETRY
At the foundation of performance are bike fit and geometry. If those two fundamentals are not established, all the engineering wizardry won’t save your ride. You need a sound fit and refined geometry to give you the confidence and comfort needed to tap into your bike’s performance. Offered in seven sizes with five fork rakes, the Melee has your ideal fit in mind – like no other race bike on the market.
While three fork rakes can service the bulk of the rider’s needs, we’ve added two extra fork rakes to specifically accommodate the smallest and largest of riders. This ensures that the Melee, regardless of size, will deliver the same level of responsive, confidence-inspiring handling required of a race bike.
