We actually got to shoot this Parlee when Glen brought it in for its first service. Parlee are renowned for their skills in the paint shop and this ESX really comes up with the goods. The digi camo on the inside of the frame triangle makes the dynamic contours of the ESX appear in a whole new light.
The ESX is Parlee's aero model, though with unrivalled comfort in its class. As such, Glen has gone for wind cheating technology across the build. ENVE aero road bars keep the cockpit tight, twinned with an ENVE stem. The build uses Dura Ace Di2 but Glen has opted for Rotor cranks and Qrings. Speedplay pedals are Glen's platform of choice.
ENVE 6.7s to Chris King hubs are a fast wheelset, really showing what this bike is built for. You have to love the famous Chris King buzz too!
The saddle is a Fizik Kurve. Extremely comfortable and further enhancing the natural comfort of the Parlee.
This is a stand out race machine. Built for speed and with a great aesthetic.
