Parlee Chebacco XD, Third Time’s a Charm

Parlee Chebacco XD, Third Time’s a Charm

Parlee Cycles introduces a third‐generation gravel model: The refined Parlee Chebacco XD! When Parlee Cycles first introduced the Chebacco range in 2015, they had no idea it would soon become their best-selling model. But that should not come as a surprise given the way the gravel segment has exploded. 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.

Sharing the same DNA as Parlee road bikes such as the Z series, Altum, and RZ7 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 and the head tube angle a bit slacker for more stability off-road yet the responsiveness that defines a Parlee remains intact. The Chebacco XD has a smooth, stable ride at speed, especially when you are floating over gravel, dirt, or broken road surfaces.

Key Features on The Chebacco XD

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 fiber 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 nearly unlimited storage for all your adventures.

Not to be Confused With Chewbacca

People always ask; where does the name come from? Chebacco Parish was one of the earliest European settlements in the mid-1600s in Essex County, where the creators live and ride. There you will find centuries-old forests, roads, paths, and trails with the name Chebacco in them, so their team found inspiration for this model family on those very paths and roads. It does seem fitting they named their adventure model after the places they ride that bring both adventure and joy.
