Adventure and Gravel
The Escape is a highly adaptable and hugely capable all terrain titanium gravel bike. It’s equally at home munching mile after mile of tarmac on an ultra endurance road event or some back of beyond forestry bridleway for those seeking for a bit more solitude.
The Escape has been designed for mixed road/offroad, and touring use. It’s also quite at home on audax rides, endurance racing, commuting, gravel, allroad, singletrack and more!
This modern and versatile steel bike is Enigma’s latest foray in to the world of adventure bikes. It’s based on their incredibly popular Escape model and built with a combination of lightweight tubes from Columbus,Reynolds and Dedacciai. The Endeavour is packed with all the features you would expect to find on a bike of this kind.
Built from Titanium, the Evoke is an out and out road focused frame designed for moderate to fast paced road riding for riders with good flexibility. It’s a wonderful blend of performance, precise handling and smoothness with sleek lines and modern aesthetics that make this an exhilarating and highly rewarding ride.
The Evoke is perfectly suited to summer club rides, fast solo blasts, all day epics, sportive, and even the occasional race.
Responsive, predictable and wonderfully compliant, the Excel is precision engineered for that ultimate titanium ride experience. It’s the seamless fusion of frame-building expertise coupled with the vision for a beautiful modern finish.
Engineered from low density grade titanium, the Excel exhibits outstanding characteristics. With a high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent fatigue and corrosion resistance, it’s a frame material that lends itself wonderfully to a premium build bicycle.
The Etape suits almost all road riding styles and is intended for riders that are focussed on endurance, long distance comfort and all-season versatility. It can cover a huge range of conditions such as club runs, audax, endurance racing, touring, light gravel, winter training, commuting, and more.
The Etape sits in the Enigma core range between the Evoke and Escape, the Evoke leaning more toward fast road use without the versatility of the Etape, the Escape more for off-road with increased tyre clearance and relaxed geometry.
