Embrace your wild side with the new Alta gravel wheelset from Parcours

Embrace your wild side with our latest Alta gravel wheelset which is designed to handle technical terrain with ease. From gravel paths and bridleways to rooty woodland and everything in between, the Alta is designed to take all of the rough stuff in its stride.  

At Parcours, we are on a mission to encourage people to #ridefurther with their lightweight, versatile wheelsets. Their latest Alta is a gravel-focused wheelset, sporting an updated, wider hookless rim - optimised for gravel tyres to support cyclists on all types of adventures and exploration as well as the roads they use to get there. It’s robust, grippy, and comfortable while still offering speed and an optimised aerodynamic profile. 

With an internal rim width of 24mm and an external width of 33mm, this hookless wheelset is optimised for gravel specific tyres between 38 and 50mm, while maintaining the flexibility to be run with anything from a 28mm road tyre, up to 55mm! 

The brand new hookless rim incorporates unique IMPACT+ technology which further strengthens the rim against impacts, for example from bottoming out a low-pressure tyre. This IMPACT+ layup is built using a more flexible resin at the very edge of the rim, making it more robust and impact-resistant for those gnarly rides on rough terrain.

The updated Alta wheelset is available with a number of different freehub options:

  • Shimano/SRAM 11-speed (also compatible with new Shimano 12-speed)
  • Campagnolo 11/12-speed
  • Campagnolo N3W 13-speed

In addition, an optional dynamo front hub (SON Delux 12) encourages you to #ridefurther by keeping your lights charged on longer bikepacking adventures, while high-grade EZO cartridge bearing hubs will aid the wheels in running smoothly. The hubs are fitted for 12mm thru-axles, however, adaptor kits are available for other standards.
