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 forces of disc brakes and features a 12mm thru axle for added stiffness and steering precision. Its DT Swiss Spline 23 wheels accelerate quickly and maintain trueness even on rough roads, with a wider profile to offer greater traction and a smoother aerodynamic profile. Enjoy Shimano’s Ultegra Di2 drivetrain, with the effortless feel and programmability of electronic shifting. Ultegra 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.
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 full Ultegra drivetrain provides smooth, easy shifting and scant weight. 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.
