ENVE Melee Road Disc Frameset
Using their extensive carbon fibre and aerodynamics expertise, ENVE has produced the impressive Melee Road Disc Frameset. Intended to work seamlessly with their range of SES wheels, it can be built up as a rapid aero machine, a lightweight climbing weapon or an all-road racer depending on component choice; as the name suggests, the Melee is intended to be in the mix to fight for victory whatever the parcours.
Zone-specific qualities are built into the frame using the carbon fibre in different layers and orientations to provide the stiffness, compliance or lightness desired for each area. Aerodynamics have been prioritised, with the slim, Kamm tail tubes offering little in the way of wind resistance and all cables and hoses hidden within the frame. The frame and fork have been optimised for use with 27mm-30mm tyres but have scope for fitting rubber up to 35mm wide for use on more mixed surfaces.
Premium ENVE finishing kit is included with the frameset, with an SES AR handlebar, integrated road stem and specific Melee seatpost (size of these components needs speccing at time of order). As with the frame, these components balance low weight and aerodynamics to offer the maximum performance advantage with internal routing cable routing, CFD developed shaped and real-world speed.
