This year's Ironman World Championships are going to be a bit different with two locations and a whole new course. We decided to talk to our experts and Parcours professional athletes, Ruth Astle and Laura Siddall and get a lowdown on what to expect from the courses and even more importantly, what factors might influence your wheel choice!
Last weekend, Parcours athlete Joe Laverick took on the National 10 in the North East of England. Although no all going to plan and some bad luck hampering his effort he still put in a great effort. We sat down with him to chat about his epic bike set up, wind tunnel testing and the Parcours wheels he ran...
Parcours athlete Maddy Nutt has been clocking up her air miles as she jets around the world racing gravel. Having had a fantastic season so far we thought it would be time to find out a bit more about what she's been up to, her plans for the rest of the season and if she has any off season plans!
This Thursday, Parcours athlete Izzy Sharp will be taking on the worlds best in the Junior Women's World Championships in Stirling, Scotland. We sat down with her to chat about her aims for the race, how her preparation has gone and her Parcours Chrono and Disc² wheels.
Hutchison-Brother UK LDN's Tiffany Keep will be rolling on to the start line with the worlds best this Sunday in the Elite Women's race representing South Africa. Her selection is incredibly well deserved, after achieving her first UCI podium in May at the Tour de Feminin, alongside strong and consistent results both in the UK and Europe. We sat down with her to chat more about the upcoming race and her preparation for it.
Whilst the use of the word “hookless” in relation to wheel rim design isn’t new anymore in cycling, there is still a high degree of confusion around what exactly it means and, more importantly, the implications for a rider when it comes to choosing the right wheel design and right tyre to run. So, we wanted to set out a few details to help our riders make the right choice, as well as explaining our perspective at Parcours.
We are very excited to announce the latest wheel in our lineup, the all-new entry level wheelset, the Paniagua. Retailing at an accessible price point without compromising on quality or technical performance this wheel is the ultimate modern all-round wheelset. The Paniagua is a lightweight and robust wheelset that is ready to perform on both summer adventures and winter rides.
Migration gravel race is without doubt the highlight of my cycling career to date. The race itself was a decent challenge, with 4 long tough back to back stages remote in the Maasai Mara National park, bringing several challenges to its participants.
Alongside Classified, we are excited to announce the world's first Powershift-ready disc wheel. This cutting-edge wheel and drivetrain configuration sets a new standard in triathlon performance and has already been proven by athletes on the world stage. Combining class leading aerodynamics from Parcours Disc2 together with Classified’s innovative Powershift technology has resulted in the most efficient triathlon setup ever engineered.
Back in 2021 I had a baptism of fire to gravel riding when, shortly after getting on a gravel bike for the first time ever,I rode coast-to-coast across Costa Ricain two days with my husband Mark. 260km of riding with 6500m elevation including some stinking 20%ers was truly a gruelling test of technical skills as well as physical and mental strength, but I loved it. Roll forward to 2023 and despite not getting anywhere near as much riding on the gravel as I would like, it is definitely something I have incorporated into my training. WithBadlands(800km non-stop unsupported gravel race in Spain) coming up in September, Mark and I decided to enter our first gravel race,The Traka, to give us a chance to try out all our kit and get a feel for what riding that far off road might be like.
