Progress. Sometimes it happens incrementally—small advancements moving things forward. Other times, it hits like a bolt from the blue, a breakthrough moment when everything changes. The Altum disc from Parlee represents both types of progress. The modern tube shaping, the cutting-edge craftsmanship, even the Altum name all leave an immediate, unmistakable impression: this is something new. Yet at the same time, Altum remains true to the Parlee DNA. In fact, it’s a direct descendent of their benchmark Z series. And that means one thing—ride quality comes first. It leaps into action when you stand up and sprint, carves through corners with unrivaled confidence, and disappears beneath you on long, grueling rides. Engineered specifically for disc brake use, the frame and fork allow for seamless integration. The frame features 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. It features a 15mm thru-axle design for added stiffness and steering precision. DT Swiss wheels add the quick acceleration, and the Shimano Ultegra drivetrain and brakes ensure effortless shifting and control. A Zipp Service Course and Fizik cockpit is so comfortable and reliable, you won't notice it, regardless of how long the ride.
