ENVE launches new Melee Frameset


Using knowledge learned from their Custom Road launch in 2021, the ENVE Melee is a laser-focused aero road weapon. This is no normal off-the-shelf model however, featuing 7 frame sizes, 5 fork rake options, 4 handlebar widths and 6 stem lengths, plus an option for unique personalised decals.

Our US manufacturing facility provides us the unique opportunity to design, prototype, and iterate at a much higher rate than we can overseas - especially over the past several years. The Custom Road is the result of this process, and it established a sound foundation upon which we have been able to iterate and create the Melee.
