All of our models are available as a frame only, frameset or complete bike. It’s also possible to purchase a finishing kit package, ‘rolling chassis’ including wheels, or a part build if you already have some components you would like to use. Get in touch for details on options not listed
Our Core range models are available with stock sizing and features. This means that it’s not possible to change geometry or tyre clearance, however you can still choose your finish and component spec to make it your own. For more information on the different types of finishes available please see our finishing page and our paintworks page. Build prices for our most popular builds are listed as a guide, but if you would like a configuration not listed then please get in touch.
If you purchase a complete bike, it will be supplied fully assembled although a small amount of assembly may be required if the bike is shipped via a courier service. We can build a bike using components supplied by customers, please get in touch to discuss options and prices
Yes, the Explor is designed with off-road riding in mind. By that we mean gravel tracks, fire roads, flowing singletrack etc. It's not designed for jumps, drop offs or technical MTB riding, though you might be surprised how capable it is.
The Explor works well as a robust and confidence inspiring road or commuter bike. Fitted with mudguards and 35-40mm tyres, it rolls along perfectly well for road-based touring or comfortable winter training rides.
We recommend a maximum tyre size of 700 x 50mm or 650b x 58mm. Please note that some tyre/rims will measure differently to the stated size therefore we cannot guarantee that all tyres of this size will fit.
We aim to have all frame sizes available ex stock. However, the Cycle Industry is currently experiencing major supply issues which has affected our ability to maintain stock levels of all frame sizes. If your frame size/model isn’t in stock the maximum wait should be around 2 months for frames/framesets. Please contact us for availability on Bike Builds.
You can buy your chosen Enigma directly from us here at Enigma HQ where you will enjoy a premium customer experience. Alternatively, you can buy from one if our chosen cycle retail partners, all carefully selected for their expertise, service and facilities.
We work with all the major Ride to Work schemes including:
Frame Buying Options
Looking for a bike that's designed to handle all of your adventure riding needs? Look no further than the Explor. Unlike some competitors who use the same geometry for both drop and flat bars, the Explor has a unique geometry that's specifically designed to work with flat bars, resulting in a longer top tube that's perfect for adventure riding.
‘Isn’t that just an MTB?’ we hear you cry! While it may look similar, the Explor has some key differences that make it ideal for adventure riding. For starters, it's equipped with our carbon gravel-specific fork, which saves over a kilogram compared to a typical suspension fork. This not only makes the bike lighter, but also gives it a sleeker and more modern look. It can accommodate a road chainset even with tyre clearance up to a whopping 700x50mm tyre (or 29x2”), which isn't possible on most MTB frames. This means that you can enjoy the benefits of a lightweight bike that's efficient on tarmac, while still being capable off-road. It comes with mounts to take a top tube bag which is a great addition for bikepackers or commuters as it provides accessible storage for snacks, electronics, and repair kits. There are also fittings for fixed mudguards, which is a rare feature in a bike of this type.
So if you're looking for a bike that's built for adventure, consider the Explor. With its unique geometry, carbon gravel-specific fork, and lightweight design, it's the perfect choice for anyone who wants to explore new terrain and push their limits on two wheels
