As other Italian manufacturers shifted production to the Far East in the late 1990’s, one brand stood resolutely still. Nearly a quarter of century later and Basso continue to honour the tradition of biciclette artigianali Italiane. Handcrafted carbon frames from the heartland of Italian bicycle manufacturing.
Shop for a carbon fibre Italian road bike from Basso and you’ll have to choose from a stable of thoroughbred road racing stallions. From the Laguna, Venta and Astra through to the Diamante and Diamante SV, every budget, riding requirement, groupset taste and colour preference is catered for.
Just in: the Basso Diamante SV
"Basso have been at the pointy end of road cycling for the last 40 years, and continue to churn out handmade carbon bikes from their facility in Dueville in Italy. We spend plenty of time drooling over their catalogues as well as the bikes we build....."
Eurobike saw Basso debut two new models. The 2019 Diamante, a classically-styled race bike, available with disc brakes for the first time and the Palta, Basso’s first foray into the gravel or adventure market.
