2015 Parlee Z3



The Parlee Z3 has been added to the Massachusetts company’s lineup to accommodate those riders looking for a more modern, sloping geometry for their racing bike. So whereas the Z2 has a less than two degree slope, the Z3 can offer you up to seven degrees of slope. That’ll be great for people who like compact geometries or people who are small enough that they have trouble finding the right type of smaller bikes for themselves.

The Z3 comes in seven Flex Fit semi-custom sizes, though for an additional cost, you can also choose to go with a full custom sizing up to 70cm! So this will be an excellent choice for those really big riders out there who have had trouble finding manufacturers who accommodate your XL size and the XL leg strength that comes with it. But whether you are a lithe climber or big brute of a sprinter, the Z3 will have the options you need to customize a ride. The Flex Fit cap choices means that you will be able to find the head tube length that will suit your size and riding style, while the tube tuning options will allow you to choose among different riding styles from the SL super light, to the XL super stiff, or the CL comfy compliant, as well as the super sexy X-woven. Lightweight, durability, compliance, all is tunable and within your reach, and defined according to your personal ride preferences in addition to your body type.

Other than that, the Z3 is similar to the Z2 in that it is able to take advantage of the same tube sets and techniques as the Z1. Parlee can also modify cable stop placement, route Di2 or EPS internally, build eTap frames with no drillings and add eyelets, pump pegs and bottle mounts. Mechanical groupsets will be routed externally, but that’s actually much nicer if you are your own mechanic. In any case, you will be able to build this up to be your supreme racing bike for weekend attacks, or kit it out to take on multi-day, point-to-point tours, and just about anything in between. Though you can special order an English threaded bottom bracket if you are particularly tied to that style, the standard Press Fit 30 bottom bracket forms the heart of the frame and works well with the advanced tube shaping as well as compatibility with most cranks on the market.

For anyone looking to make a splashy statement with the paint job, Parlee does make available custom painting at an extra cost. But we’re of a mind that just having the name Parlee on the down tube makes a huge statement already. Quality, high performance and longevity will be the hallmark of any Parlee you can order. The semi-custom advantages of the Parlee Z3 will bring you hours of riding joy for many seasons to come.
