This week’s feature belongs to former NHL legend Mike Richter, with his ENVE Melee.

Mike is a champion, as a goalie for the New York Rangers, he led his team to Stanley Cup victory in 1994. He represented the United States internationally and, in 2008, was inducted into the U.S Hockey Hall of Fame.

Cycling has played a huge role in Mike’s life, from forming part of his NHL training to pure joy and escapism, he’s spent equal amounts of time in the saddle as he has on the ice.

As you can imagine, a sportsman of this calibre has high standards and knows precisely how to achieve them. Marginal gains and fine details can make the difference between winning and losing, which is why we have helped Mike with several custom bike projects — each tuned to his exacting standards. His bike collection boasts a custom Parlee, fat tyre MTB and an OPEN UPPER gravel bike.

Mike is well informed on the latest tech, so it was no surprise when he called in to see us as soon as ENVE announced their first stock frame, the Melee.

Building bikes for Mike is an absolute pleasure, he may be a superstar but he has no superstar ego. One the the nicest guys you could meet on the road, he’s always happy to stop and chat. If you bring up cycling you’ll be there a while!

The Melee ticked every box for Mike when he was in the market for a new bike. Aero frame, slick clean design, built for speed, with the capacity to take a wider tire. When we let him know that the ENVE engineers raced gravel during the Melee’s development, he was sold.

We’re incredibly excited to announce that Mike is joining the Signature team as our newest ambassador. You’ll spot him on our regular Saturday rides and is joining Abraham in Iceland for the epic 120 mile gravel event, The Rift.
