Cycling Weekly Verdict

With their first purpose-built gravel machine, Enve strikes a good balance of comfort and stability, speed and liveliness. It’s no road bike-replacing, do-it-all bike but if you’re setting out for a fast mixed-terrain ride, a gravel race or a bikepacking adventure, this bike will be a capable and swift companion.
