You won't see unnecessary shapes in Parlee designs. Efficiency is the guiding principle behind all Parlee bikes. The key to pushing performance is the strategic use of carbon fiber to maximize its characteristics.
Carbon fiber is perfect for building bikes because it has such a high strength-to-weight ratio, and this is why the styling makes no sense. All it does is add weight and reduce ride quality. It's akin to putting fins on a car. They may look cool, but they won't make the car faster.
Instead, efficient use of material leads to increased performance. And it's this unrelenting focus on design efficiency that leads to maximum performance. Better acceleration. Better tracking.
Lighter weight. Unmatched durability. Remarkable comfort.
That is what sets Parlee apart.
