“We picked the Parlee Z3 as best dream road bike in our Editor’s Choice awards last year. The main difference is that the Z4 comes in stock sizes while the Z3 is strictly custom. The ride is phenomenal. At first, it’s so subtle you realize only that it’s exceptionally light and beautifully responsive to pedal inputs. But the more you ride the Z4, the more you recognize the small, smart touches. Steering is predictable and, likewise, so smooth and quiet it takes a while to adjust your expectations; you can dive into a corner if you want, but you get to the same place by just flicking your wrists and letting the Z4 do the work. In a word, this bike is all about refinement, not fireworks.” -Bicycling Magazine
“The Parlee delivered one of the smoothest rides we’ve encountered.” -Road Bike Action Magazine
“The Z5 oozes quality. Clean lines from its non-fussy, round tube shapes deliver a ride feel that bucks the trend for huge tube shapes-often more ‘show’ than ‘go’. The Parlee is impossible to fault.” Score: 10 out of 10 -BikeRadar
