A beautiful machine is the sum of many details. Parlee knows just that, and their Altum is a testament to years of excellence. A meticulous carbon layup preserves Parlee's lauded ride quality, while new tube shape designs increase strength and stiffness and reduce weight. The Altum is engineered to feel “snappy” when you stand up and sprint but have just enough compliance, especially in the rear triangle, to give it a smooth ride. A traditional round 31.6mm seatpost with a hidden integrated binder as well as clearance for 28mm-wide tires adds just a hint more compliance. The fork features an integrated carbon that improves stiffness and saves weight. Plus, with clip-in cable and wire routing for mechanical and electronic systems, Parlee made sure the Altum was future-proof and simple to work on. Quick, reliable DT Swiss wheels carry you as far as you want to go, while Shimano's Dura-Ace Di2 drivetrain ensures flawless shifting. The 3T and Fizik cockpit offers solid ergonomics and clean aesthetics.
