British brand Enigma has featured in RIDE once before when their Excel model was tested in RIDE #62. The Esprit is not as expensive but still has the hallmarks of any good titanium frame. With Dura-Ace components right through the bike, surely it would be a great ride…

The Enigma Esprit was reviewed by Jack Lynch. (Buy RIDE #67 and see p.196 for the full review.)

Note: all bikes on test in RIDE Cycling Review are subjected to a number of testing protocols including: the ‘Build Report’, ‘Round Table Discussion’, the three-page review itself, a full spec sheet – including weights of each component (taken by RIDE’s in-house mechanic, not repeated from marketing material)… and, of course, a full session in the photo studio.

Although the tests in the magazine are comprehensive, we also offer a host of online extras once the print edition is on sale, including a photo gallery and voice files from the ‘Round Table Discussion’ day…
