Unboxing & Features Video

“Here in our Sussex facilities, we produce the highest quality handcrafted frames. From titanium to steel and stainless steel, all engineered for supreme performance.”

Enigma Escape Titanium

“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 a bit more solitude. Whatever you throw at the Escape it handles it with ease.”

Stox by Hand

Fitted to the Enigma Escape Titanium is a pair of wheels built by Shane of Stox by Hand, namely the Gravel 35 Wheelset. “These are a 24mm internal hookless rim, 30mm width, and 35mm depth. The rim itself is asymmetric with a 2.8 mm spoke offset. This allows for a more even spoke tension between drive and non-drive spokes and an increase in lateral stiffness. Weight is 1440 grams when laced to our SLCL hubs.” – http://stoxbyhand.com
