New ENVE MOG Gravel Bike goes big on features (and tires)

Quickly moving from their debut Custom Road bike to the stock-sized Melee road bike to a full-fledged gravel bike that appears ready for anything. Taking all the best features and standards from the market, and even borrowing a couple clever bits from mountain bikes, the all-new ENVE MOG aims to be the ride of choice for any adventure.

First, what’s up with the name MOG? It’s not an acronym for anything, though they have several suggestions – Mud or Gravel, Machine of Grit, Medium of Grandeur, Made of Glory, Motion on Gravel, etc. No, it’s simply meant as a verb and state of mind, someone willing to MOG through the longest, toughest rides.

For starters, there’s room for 700×50 tires (aka 29×2.0). It’s designed specificially for 700c wheels and tires…no flip chips or adjustable dropouts to accommodate 650B. Minimum recommended tire size is 700×35.

It uses ENVE’s In-Route internal cable system and is sold as a chassis with their Aero Integrated stem, including a new Positive version with a bit of rise (versus the negative rise model shown on the bike).

At the moment, these Integrated stems are only available with the bike or through custom builders, and they work with their G-Series, SES AR, SES Aero Road, and Compact Road handlebars to create a fully enclosed routing system. Cables/hoses run through the bar, into the stem, then through an oversized 1.5″ upper headset cap in front of the 1-1/8″ steerer.

That creates an extremely clean look from tip to tail, and keeps cables and everything out of the way of framebags, etc:

Hard points on the fork let you mount an Anything Cage or similar accessories, and top tube bag mounts allow strap-free bento box attachment. Pretty much anything else can be strapped onto the bike like normal, but there’s also internal frame storage:

The MOG comes with two custom neoprene tool bags that fit inside the downtube. Simply slide-to-release a cover plate under the downtube’s bottle cage, and you can slide both into the frame. They’ll fit snacks, tools, tubes, a windbreaker, or whatever else you want to hide in there.

A third mounting point sits under the downtube, where a thick rubber protector shields the frame from rock strikes. Hidden elsewhere on the frame and fork are fender mounts, too.

The frame uses threaded T47 bottom brackets (not included), giving you oversized, lightweight crankset options with the larger bearings and threaded ease that T47 offers.

A thick chainstay protector prevents noisy chainslap and scratches. The MOG uses a UDH derailleur hanger, making it the second drop-bar bike we’ve seen with this standard. Hmmm…

A removeable front derailleur hanger lets you run some 2x drivetrains… only Shimano mechanical 2x groups are compatible as the frame requires continuous cable housing (there’s no built-in cable stop on the frame). Any electronic 2x group works, but it needs the wider 47-47.5mm chainline of gravel groups like SRAM’s Force Wide or Shimano GRX, which kinda rules out Campy 2x. But the Campy Ekar group is fine, and quite good.

And for 1x groups, it requires direct-mount chainrings. Standard offset chainrings and cranks work up to a 46-tooth chainring, and Wide/GRX offsets and cranks work up to 50-tooth rings.

If all that sounds like word soup, here’s a chart:

Within those confines, you can run any drivetrain you want, the MOG is only sold as a chassis with cockpit. There’s a Velcro loop inside the downtube to hold everything snug…it sits under the storage bags, accessible through that bottle cage cover port. Just unstrap them to install swap cables or hoses.

The MOG chassis is sold with a headset and ENVE handlebar, Aero Integrated stem, and rigid 27.2 seatpost (saddle not included, though they offer one of those, too). You get to choose which bar you want, and, using their new online fit calculator, choose the bar width and stem length. You can also upgrade to their gravel dropper post, and add whatever ENVE wheels you want to create a rolling chassis.

Price is $5,500 (€5,995 / £5,300 / AUD $9,999) before wheels or upgrades.

The cockpit selection combines with six frame sizes to help get almost any rider comfortably on board the MOG. Three different fork rakes are used across the size range, too. Note the different figures in the geometry chart based on which tire size you mount.
