Eurobike 2014: Parlee introduce Altum to replace Z5

Three models available, including American firm's lightest frame to date and disc-ready chassis

Parlee used Eurobike 2014 to lift the lid on the Altum. Parlee’s lightest frame to date replaces the long-standing Z5 in the American firm’s off-the-shelf range.

The new frame will be available in three models: the flagship, 750g Altum (£3,999 for the frameset), the more affordable, 810g Altum R (£3,299) and the Altum Disc (£3,299). Parlee have also introduced a more affordable version of the ESX aero road bike, dubbed the ESX R (UK price TBC).

The Altum is 100g lighter than the Z5 thanks to a new carbon fibre layup process which Parlee say has dropped the weight without sacrificing stiffness and while maintaining a smooth ride quality.

We caught up with Parlee’s Tom Rodi to find out more.
