Mind prepped, body ready, equipment on point. The rest is out of your control. When the gun goes off, a melee ensues. Confidence in ability and equipment provide an escape from the chaos.
The Melee takes design cues from our own Custom Road, but where the Custom Road prioritizes customization, the Melee prioritizes efficiency and speed.
With geometry optimized around 27 to 32 mm tires, the Melee dials up the versatility with the ability to fit up to 35 mm tires, allowing you to tune your Melee to meet the needs of the day.
Built a la carte
The Melee chassis is the canvas upon which you can create your dream bike. Choose your favorite SES or Foundation wheelset, SES AR Handlebar width, Integrated Aero Stem length, and Aero Seatpost setback to achieve your perfect setup.
FIT AND GEOMETRY
At the foundation of performance are bike fit and geometry. If those two fundamentals are not established, all the engineering wizardry won’t save your ride. You need a sound fit and refined geometry to give you the confidence and comfort needed to tap into your bike’s performance. Offered in seven sizes with five fork rakes, the Melee has your ideal fit in mind – like no other race bike on the market.
Offered in seven sizes with five fork rakes.
While three fork rakes can service the bulk of the rider’s needs, we’ve added two extra fork rakes to specifically accommodate the smallest and largest of riders. This ensures that the Melee, regardless of size, will deliver the same level of responsive, confidence-inspiring handling required of a race bike.
Find Your Best Fit
We’ve created the Best Fit Calculator to help the rider (or bike fitter) identify exactly what frame size, stem length, spacer stack, and seatpost offset combination will meet their required fit stack, fit reach, and saddle position needs.
