Bob Parlee founded Parlee in 2000 with a simple but lofty goal: to build the best bikes in the world. With 20+ years’ experience in the boat-building business, he understood the capabilities of composite materials.
Don’t mistake style for performance. Bob's focus is on designing and engineering bikes that are fast, light, durable and fun to ride. He never uses unnecessary shapes in the name of design.
Instead, Parlee's guiding principle is efficiency. They use carbon fiber strategically to achieve a certain level of performance. To create a bike specifically for you that does exactly what it’s intended to do—whether that’s road racing, daily training rides, cyclocross or all-day epics.
An unrelenting focus on design and efficiency leads to maximum performance. Better acceleration. Better tracking. Lighter weight. Unmatched durability. Remarkable comfort. Industry leading customisation and personalisation. That is what sets Parlee apart.
Targeted performance meets tailor-made fit. That’s what defines a Parlee bike.
