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, and they feature a wider profile to offer greater traction and a smoother aerodynamic profile. Shimano’s Dura-Ace Di2 drivetrain offers you the self-adjusting accuracy and sophistication of electronic shifting along with the modern styling Dura-Ace is known for. It perfectly complements Parlee’s design aesthetic, and delivers the perfect shifting precision you expect. Dura-Ace disc brakes offer incredible hydraulic 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 unmistakeable Parlee Ride.
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
