Parlee Altum Disc
The Parlee approach to carbon handcrafting is focused on the nuances of the ride. As the Parlee Director of Sales & Marketing has often remarked “stiff and light is easy to build”. What’s much more difficult – and what Parlee has achieved with the Altum Disc – is a carbon fiber finesse that noticeably absorbs road chatter and dampens the rubble. This, combined with hydraulic disc stopping power and expert tuning, leads us to always point this bike uphill in Boulder’s backyard canyons. And let’s be honest: at SG we love mountain adventure. If a road bike can’t deliver some kind of mountain adventure, it’s not going to make it in our line-up. We also love Bob Parlee’s passion not only for building bikes, but for riding them. We love that he is a craftsman, not a desk jocky. We carry the Parlee Altum Disc because it owes it’s cache to elegance rather than flashiness. We love the Parlee story, and see the Altum Disc as a critically important chapter in that story.
