The Basso Astra MCT38 Mens Road Bike's UCI approved, hi-modulus carbon fibre monocoque frame uses the Basso experience in the placement of the direction of the single layers of fibres, creating a main triangle with optimized shaped profiles.

This allows a higher resistance to flex and torsion, whilst maximising weight reduction.

The cone shaped and edge profiled head tube link directly to the front triangle and then seamlessly join to the rear seat stays giving the new Astra a unique look.

It also allows a further maximizing of rigidity and strength, adding increased riding precision and response whilst powering out of the saddle.

A Shimano Ultegra 2x11 groupset provides a slick mechanical gear shifting experience, whilst the unyielding calipers provide strong stopping across all road surfaces.

Finalising the spec, a Microtech MCT38 semi-deep section wheelset is fitted with grippy and fast rolling Michelin Pro 4 tyres.

The Astra offers a seamlessly smooth frame design and adds a pro level experience to every ride!
