Basso Diamante 40th Anniversary Frameset - Red
Built to celebrate the brands 40th anniversary, the inspiration of the design for the Basso Diamante 40th Anniversary Frameset comes from the 1982 GAP model. It has been adapated to today’s trends, blending the technology of the Diamante with a truly retro look.
When Basso founder, Alcide built his first bicycle in 1977 in his father’s garage, ‘’Basso’’ was only his family name. However, he was already aware of the DNA he carried. Marino Basso, his brother, won the Road World Championships in 1972.
As time went by, Basso manufactured bicycles in steel, aluminium and carbon. Every bike that received the Basso badge kept that soul, identity and those core value that were born out of that garage in Veneto, Italy.
Only 400 frames were produced with each frame including the personal signature of Alcide Basso.
- The frame can be used with both mechanical or electronic groupsets.
- Aerodynamic shapes for maximum air penetration.
- The frame is U.C.I. approved.
- Semi-integrated front fork/frame/stem/headset.
- Headset and fork 1-1/8” to 1.5” for more rigidity.
- Monocoque frame with no aluminium
