ONE BIKE. ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES.
Introducing Parlee's third generation gravel/adventure bike!
When we first introduced the Chebacco range in 2015, we had no idea it would soon become our best-selling model. The Chebacco XD takes the universally loved ride quality of the original go-anywhere “quiver-killer” and adds additional traction and comfort (through increased tire capacity) and vastly increased on-bike storage to make an even more capable bicycle.
The Chebacco XD shares the same DNA as Parlee road bikes such as the Z series, Altum and RZ7 models. The frame is handcrafted from the same carbon fibre materials, but with purpose-built geometry and design features including wider chainstays and seatstays. The bottom bracket is a bit lower and the head tube angle a bit slacker for more stability off-road yet the responsiveness that define a Parlee remains. The Chebacco XD has a smooth, stable ride at speed, especially when you are floating over gravel, dirt or broken road surfaces.
With flat-mount disc brakes, wider tire clearance (now up to 45mm with 700c and 47mm with 650b) and hidden fender mounts front and rear, this 100 percent carbon fibre frame lets you expand your riding possibilities—while giving up nothing in terms of lightweight performance and ride quality. Storage mounts on the top tube, under the downtube and on the fork blade sides allow for near unlimited storage for all your adventures.
The Chebacco XD is compatible with both 1x and 2x gravel and road drivetrains.
People always ask us; where does the name come from? Chebacco Parish was one of the earliest European settlements in the mid-1600s and in Essex County, where we live and ride, you will find centuries-old forests, roads, paths and trails with the name Chebacco in them and our team found inspiration for this model family on those very paths and roads, so it seemed fitting to name our adventure model after the places we ride.

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.
