Updated Parcours Alta gravel wheel is wider, more aero and is made with new impact-resistant carbon

From rocky American fire roads to good old British mud-baths, the Alta can do it all, according to Parcours

British wheel brand Parcours has launched a new version of its 700C Alta gravel wheelset that has a wider, hookless rim and also benefits from the aerodynamic profiling of its road wheels.

Additionally, the rim features what Parcours claims is "unique" impact technology called IMPACT+. This involves using a more flexible resin at the edge of the rim which protects it against, for example, bottoming out a low-pressure tyre. The 650B version of the Parcours Alta, which got a perfect score when we reviewed it last year, is also to be updated with this tech.
