The Eikon is the latest offering from titanium frame specialist Enigma. It is part of their Signature range, meaning the frame is ‘proudly made in Sussex, England reflecting commitment to quality and craftsmanship here in the UK’. Not only that, the 3AL/2.5V titanium tubing comes from iconic British company Reynolds, with this particular frame painted in Reynolds’ green and yellow to reflect the collaboration. This is a fast summer bike, with long days ridden with speed and comfort at its heart.

Over 40 years cycling in a variety of disciplines including road riding, commuting, a self-supported Land's End to John o' Groats trip, XC mountain biking and several Polaris Challenge two-day events. Adventure, escape and fun are the motivations for my riding. I also love bike and kit design and have fillet brazed a couple of framesets using Reynolds 853 steel tubing for myself. A very satisfying experience to ride your own bespoke bike!
