In the MOG, ENVE has aimed to develop a purpose-built gravel bike designed and engineered to meet the high-performance and versatility demands of riders and racers looking for the best gravel bikes. In 2021, ENVE launched their first complete bicycle, the Ogden, in 2022 they added the Melee, a fixed geometry road racer. With these platforms and the new MOG gravel bike, ENVE aims to continue their evolution from aftermarket wheel and component specialists to a full-service bicycle brand. 

Jake Pantone, VP of Product at ENVE stated, "With the MOG, we introduce ENVE’s definition of the modern gravel bike. As avid gravel riders and racers ourselves, we aimed to create a platform that delivers the versatility, simplicity, and performance that we, along with today’s gravel riders, demand.”

Standout MOG features include a 700c specific geometry, tire clearance for up to 50mm tires, and the ENVE Cargo Bay which provides in-frame downtube storage. ENVE say aerodynamics wasn’t the main priority for the MOG, but it does borrow tube shaping from ENVE’s aerodynamically optimized road frames, and also utilizes the IN-Route System for internal routing of wires and hoses.

Fit and geometry are other areas that ENVE has paid special attention to with their new gravel bike. The MOG is available in six frame sizes, from 49 to 60 cm. It also comes with three unique fork rake options to ensure that riders of all sizes will benefit from the confidence-inspiring handling that the MOG is intended to deliver. 

To aid the fitment process, ENVE has created the ENVE Best-Fit Calculator and Pantone explained the process. “Your bike needs to be an extension of your body and we want people to achieve that seamless feel from the first pedal stroke. Our calculator aims to simplify the fitment process for the fitter and customer alike. The calculator functions simply by pairing a rider’s fit stack, fit reach, and saddle position numbers with a frame geometry, stem length, stem rise, spacer stack, and saddle offset. The output provides the rider with several frame and component configuration options that the rider, along with their fitter, can analyze to determine the rider’s “best-fit” option."

Rather than buy an off-the-peg bike, customers of ENVE have the option to build their dream build version of the MOG, which is a similar option to the Custom Road introduced in 2021. The MOG is only available as a “Chassis” purchase which includes the frame, fork, headset, handlebar, stem, and seatpost. The bar, stem and seatpost are selected à la carte to ensure that customers get the exact fit spec they need. There are four IN-Route System compatible handlebars available, with options between a dropper or fixed seatpost, ensuring each customer can build the MOG best suited to their riding needs. 

For additional personalization and tuning, the MOG customer can then select their ENVE wheelset of choice. Finally, by working with the local ENVE Ride Center or retail partner, drivetrain components and accessories are selected, and the build is completed. The MOG is compatible with most of the major best gravel groupsets from Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo in their mechanical and electrical options.

The MOG is available initially only in the one color, but ENVE does give MOG customers the option to design a personalized decal kit for their MOG using ENVE’s custom decal configurator. The MOG decal kit includes decals for the head tube, stem, down tube, and seat tube. Once the order is completed, the kit is delivered direct to the customer with tools and instructions to complete the installation process.

The MOG is available now in select sizes and markets around the world. The ENVE MOG Chassis retails for $5,500 / €5,995 / £5,500 / AUD$9,999 and includes the frame, fork, headset, stem, handlebar, and seatpost.
