Parlee Altum R with Chris King


The Altum R is very similar to the Altum but with different carbon and lay-up, creating a very light, stiff frame. With its light weight (810g frame/330g fork), smooth but efficient ride quality and Flex Fit sizing system, Altum R is the right choice for riders seeking the perfect balance of performance and comfort on all types of roads.

Richard's build is something of an American classic. Parlee of Beverly, Mass., provide the frame. He chose Thomson for the finishing kit. An iconic U.S brand and byword for quality. Chris King are pretty much the hubs. Richard's choice of mango anodising works so well with the grey frame. We love the subtle darker grey Parlee logos on the inside of the fork and the chainstays too.

It's great how a carefully conisdered bit of colour can really make a build look special. Come and see us about your own custom build Parlee today.
