The emergence and rapid advance of disc brake technology has proven to be a game-changer in the cycling world. Parlee’s Altum Disc LE features some key frame and fork designs that allow for seamless integration with today’s disc brakes. The super-light hand-made carbon frame features the same engineering, design, and geometry that makes the rim-brake Altum a class-leader, but with a modular rear dropout that accepts QR135 or thru-axle 142mm wheels. Up front, it has a specially built fork designed for the greater forces of disc brakes and features a 12mm thru axle for added stiffness and steering precision. Its DT Swiss Spline 23 wheels accelerate quickly and maintain trueness even on rough roads, with a wider profile to offer greater traction and a smoother aerodynamic profile. SRAM's wireless eTap drivetrain delivers lightning-fast shifts with the ability to program how shifters and derailleurs interact for an extremely lightweight system and clean aesthetic. SRAM RED disc brakes offer hydraulic power and all-weather stopping resiliency to give you peace of mind on every ride. The LE models feature Parlee's carbon handlebar, stem, and seatpost for first-class comfort, control and extra weight savings.

For adventurous riders who love to tackle unpredictable roads and ride in all kinds of weather, the Altum Disc LE delivers a new level of performance while maintaining the unmistakable Parlee Ride.

Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.

Electronic shifting delivers exceptional performance.

Shifting Performance

Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.

Electronic shifting is customizable.


Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.

Electronic shifting is light on the maintenance.


Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
