The emergence and rapid advance of disc brake technology has proven to be a game-changer in the cycling world. Parlee’s Altum Disc features some key frame and fork designs that allow for seamless integration with today’s disc brakes. The superlight hand-made carbon frame features the same engineering, design, and geometry that makes the rim-brake Altum a class-leader, but with a modular rear dropout that accepts QR135 or thru-axle 142mm wheels. Up front, it has a specially built fork designed for the greater braking forces of disc brakes and features a 12mm thru axle for added stiffness and steering precision. Its DT Swiss C 1800 Spline wheels accelerate quickly and maintain trueness even on rough roads, and they feature a wider profile to offer greater traction and a smoother aerodynamic profile. The Shimano 105 drivetrain delivers reliable performance along with ergonomic design and disc brakes offer incredible power and all-weather stopping resiliency to give you peace of mind on every ride. For adventurous riders who love to tackle unpredictable roads and ride in all kinds of weather, the Altum Disc delivers a new level of performance while maintaining the unmistakable Parlee Ride.
Parlee’s Chebacco is at home wherever roads get rough and rides turn into adventures. Experience the Chebacco’s remarkable versatility on gravel roads, paved highway, and cyclocross courses. With disc brakes, 40mm tire clearance, and hidden fender mounts front and rear, this 100% carbon fiber frame lets you expand your riding possibilities while maintaining lightweight performance and Parlee’s signature ride quality. The bottom bracket is a bit lower than traditional Euro’ style cyclocross bikes, and the head tube angle a bit slacker. This gives the Chebacco a smooth, stable ride at speed—especially when you’re pounding through gravel, dirt, or variable road surfaces. The Chebacco dons Shimano’s tried-and-true Ultegra drivetrain, offering the quick, sure shifting and the reliable power and modulation of their disc brakes. Clement’s go-anywhere X’Plor MSO tires generously cushion rough roads while delivering superb traction with low rolling resistance. They’re wrapped around DT Swiss Spline wheels with thru-axles front and rear for responsiveness you’ll notice immediately. The cockpit is outfitted by Zipp and Fizik, so you know it’s lightweight and ergonomically sound, letting the bike disappear beneath you. You don’t need three different bikes for cyclocross racing, gravel grinding, and road riding. You just need one Parlee.
Within a handful of miles on Parlee’s Altum, you’ll know you made the right choice. By the end of that first ride, you’ll be at once impressed and delighted with the hand-made carbon frameset that delivers impressive steering precision and pedaling efficiency for any frame, let alone one so lightweight. DT Swiss C 1800 Spline 23 wheels float effortlessly on both smooth tarmac and rough pavement, with a wide profile that offers comfort, traction, and aerodynamics. Altum’s Ultegra Di2 drivetrain ensures flawless, programmable electronic shifting you have to ride to believe. And, this beautiful machine is carefully tuned with high quality ZIPP alloy components and a supportive Fizik saddle. All this combines to create a bike that leaps into action when you stand up and sprint, carves through corners with unrivaled confidence, and disappears beneath you on long, grueling rides. That’s the Parlee Ride. That’s Altum.
