ONE BIKE. ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.
It’s inspired by a place where history runs deep. North of Boston, in the county now known as Essex, Chebacco Parish was one of the earliest European settlements in the mid-1600s. Today, centuries-old roads, paths and trails make it a perfect place for adventurous rides—if you have the right bike.
Meet the Chebacco LE. It’s named after our local stomping grounds, but it’s at home wherever roads can get rough and rides turn into adventures. Gravel grinding, cyclocross racing, tackling a commute in the urban jungle. Now, for the first time, you can do all those things on one bike that delivers remarkable versatility plus the signature Parlee ride quality.
Rather than follow the traditional blueprint for a cyclocross bike, we set out to create a premium ride experience with nearly unlimited capabilities. With disc brakes, wide tire clearance (up to 40mm) and hidden fender mounts front and rear, this 100 percent carbon fiber frame that lets you expand your riding possibilities—while giving up nothing in terms of lightweight performance and ride quality.
The Chebacco LE shares the same DNA as Parlee road bikes such as the Z series and Altum models. The frame is handcrafted from the same carbon fiber materials, but with purpose-built geometry and design features including wider chainstays and seatstays. The bottom bracket is a bit lower than traditional Euro’ style cyclocross bikes, and the head tube angle a bit slacker. This gives the Chebacco LE a smooth, stable ride at speed, especially when you’re pounding through gravel, dirt or variable road surfaces.
The Chebacco LE’s rear brake hose is routed through the downtube and chainstay, allowing the rear disc brake caliper to be mounted inside the triangle. The rear dropouts are modular, compatible with either thru-axle or QR, and the frame also includes integrated fender mounts for a sleek setup in wet weather conditions.
You don’t need three different bikes for cyclocross racing, gravel grinding and winter road riding. You just need one Parlee.
“The Chebacco could actually be the only bike you need. It outperforms every bike I’ve put it up against in power transfer, long endurance miles over rugged terrain, and snappy yet stable beneath me out of every turn in every cyclocross race. The winter training months have become a joy knowing I can ride my Chebacco in any condition, on single track, or on the road. When we line up at a cross race I get a bit of a smirk, knowing our team has a distinct advantage over our competition, with the absolute best bicycle beneath us.” Rachel Rubino, Fearless Femme Cyclocross Team

About The Brand
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.
