New Parlee Ouray All-Road Bike Shows Boldly Bare Monocoque Frame

April 18, 2024

April 18, 2024 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – The all-new Parlee Ouray is the culmination of 25 years of carbon fiber expertise, blending precise layups, legendary handling, and modern geometry to create a truly unique all-road bike with our first-ever nude carbon finish.

Modern riders are seeking an experience, and a bike that lets them explore their surroundings and themselves. To venture further, or ride faster. And to connect with friends over a shared passion.

The new Parlee Ouray is built for all of these things. Inspired by the town of Ouray, located deep in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado, where all roads deliver epic experiences. The Ouray is purpose built for conquering climbs, ripping descents and exploring back roads.

A true clean-sheet design

All-new from the ground up and handmade in the EU, the Ouray’s monocoque frame is made with a new precision layup process that creates a perfect frame, both functionally and aesthetically.

Each unidirectional carbon fiber ply is meticulously placed, yielding a finished frame that requires no cosmetic layers, filler, bonding agents, or paint. It looks so good, it’s our first production bike to be offered in a stunning nude finish!

This level of finish quality is extremely hard to do -it’s why almost no one else does it- so we’re proud to show our work by offering it with nothing more than a durable wax coating, allowing you (and your riding buddies) to admire the craftsmanship.

Light, but not a lightweight

Our unique construction method delivers a true monocoque one-piece frame that’s incredibly lightweight, yet durable enough for real-world adventures.

This layup process gives us complete control over the ride quality. In fact, the Ouray is the most comfortable bike we’ve ever made. But, the sloping top tube and dropped stays do more than add tuned compliance for all day comfort. The compact design delivers improved lateral and torsional stiffness for immediate power transfer.

Fully modern, and plays well with others

Clearance for wider 700×38 tires provide confidence on packed gravel and less than perfect asphalt, and updated geometry delivers stable, predictable handling.

Modern touches like full internal routing with integrated cockpits, electronic-only shifting, and minimalist front brake mounts combine with proven open standards like a T47 threaded bottom bracket and UDH derailleur hanger for easy (and future-proof) component compatibility.

Built to order

Every frame is made one at a time, in small batches, then individually built to order at our US headquarters. Choose from five frame sizes that can be built in standard or tall configurations, then choose your desired cockpit (including bar width, stem length, seat and seatpost configuration), wheels, tires, drivetrain, and accessories.

Parlee #Paintlab has set the standard for custom paint for many years. We offer our full scope of custom paint options on this bike as well. Our team can recreate anything from mild to wild to deliver a bike that is 100% unique to you.

Joy is in the ride.

The Ouray is the next generation of Parlee, delivering our signature ride quality and handling on a modern machine that’s ready for your next adventure, wherever that may be. This is the ultimate all-road bike.
