+ Altum DISC: Ride and Review + Altum DISC: Ride and Review

” …as good as it gets in carbon road bikes without going full custom.”

CycleEXIF’s Technical Editor Rich Gearing has ridden a lot of bikes in his time and has spent some quality time on both our Altum and Altum Disc. His in-depth review and (as expected) gorgeous pictures can be found HERE.

“The turn-in and mid-corner control on this bike is an absolute joy. Even having ridden bikes with almost identical geometry hasn’t yielded anything like the same cornering feel. It is an element that Parlee have got well and truly dialed through the geometry, tube and frame shaping and the carbon layup; and this is a yardstick that, for me, all future bikes will be compared to.”
