2017 Parlee Chebacco
Parlee’s local stomping ground has deep historical roots. North of Boston, in a county called Essex, there lies one of the oldest European settlements in the country: Chebacco Parish. It is home to a rich and vivid history going back centuries. It is also home to some of the greatest off road biking in the country. Paths, trails and roads snake all through this historical area. It is a place where trails become adventures. It is home to the Parlee Chebacco.
The Chebacco is not simply a bike made to commemorate a rich and colorful history. It is not even a bike that is content to just stay on simple dirt trails. It is a bike that wants to replace every bike in your quiver. The idea behind the Chebacco is that you don’t need a separate bike for gravel grinding, cyclocross racing, and tackling the urban jungle. The Chebacco wants to be your “go to” bike for everything.
The Chebacco shares the same DNA as Parlee’s Z series and Altum models, and is crafted from the same high quality carbon materials. With disc brakes, wide tire clearance (up to 40mm) and hidden fender mounts front and rear, the Chebacco lets you expand your riding possibilities—while giving up nothing in terms of lightweight performance and ride quality. The bottom bracket is lower than usual and the head tube is a bit slacker, so the bike is smooth and stable at speed. Get ready to tear up the trails and the streets on this dynamic carbon bike.
