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 Spline R23 wheels float effortlessly on both smooth tarmac and rough pavement, with a wide profile that offers comfort, traction, and aerodynamics.
Altum’s SRAM RED wireless eTap drivetrain delivers lightning-fast shifts with the ability to program how shifters and derailleurs interact for an extremely lightweight system and clean aesthetic. This beautiful machine is carefully tuned with Parlee’s own carbon handlebar to give you the control you demand and the comfort you deserve. 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.
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.
