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. Parlee's Altum 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. 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 drivetrain ensures silky smooth precision. The 3T and Fizik cockpit offers solid ergonomics and clean aesthetics.
