Enigma Excel Disc – with titanium alloy frame

We stock a range of Enigma bikes with the Enigma Excel being the most popular here at Lifecycle UK and with many of our customers.

The Enigma Excel is built with 6AL 4V titanium with the latest generation disc brakes and makes for a responsive bicycle with sharp handling and a beautifully compliant ride.

The Excel is Enigma bikes flagship model — handcrafted to perfection in their Sussex workshop by a team of skilled craftsman.

Many of you I’m sure are asking — what is 6AL 4V?
Well, here is the answer – 6Al-4V Titanium is an alpha-beta titanium alloy with a high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent corrosion resistance. It is one of the most commonly used titanium alloys and is applied in a wide range of applications where low density and excellent corrosion resistance are necessary such as the aerospace industry.
