When you face an invisible challenger, you have to first understand how your challenger reacts to your every move. ENVE has plenty of experience battling the wind and will help you overcome the challenge.
Developed in the wind tunnel, the Melee's tube shapes were designed specifically to work in unison with SES rim shapes. You can see the inspiration of ENVE wheels in the frame.
Wiring on the frame is as invisible as the wind itself, adding to the fight against drag. Everything routes smoothly from front to back, giving the Melee an additional advantage over every bike’s nemesis.
A climb is a challenge for all of us and a fight against gravity feels impossible to win. When you think you have finally defeated it, there is usually another climb ready, waiting to battle you and your bike.
With better carbon materials and advanced engineering techniques, today’s standard is a sub-900 gram frame. The Melee comes in at a mere 850 grams*. This puts the Melee in the same category as the most lightweight bikes on the market.
*Frame Weight: 850 grams (56cm, Painted, No Hardware)
A lightweight frame is great, but if your bike is not stiff enough in the right places, it becomes counterproductive. When you’re pedaling with everything in you, the Melee will return the favor and push it to the wheels. Choosing the right ENVE SES wheels will only add to the power.

ENVE thought of everyone when developing the Melee fork. They chose to focus on all sizes, unlike many manufacturers. With five different fork rakes available, smaller and larger riders were equally considered.
The Melee includes an ENVE SES AR bar and ENVE Integrated stem. At R&A Cycles, we are allowing you to choose the bar and stem size you want rather than having a standard size per frame size. This can be chosen after your purchase or through a call or chat with one of our representatives.
