This particular model is equipped with a Microtech MR38 carbon clincher wheelset. It has 38mm deep unidirectional carbon rims, 7075 alloy hubs (18 hole front & 24 hole rear) with Sapim spokes and weigh in at approximately 1656g for the pair.
‘We are proud to state that all of our frames are entirely Italian. Every process in our production takes place in house in north east Italy; from the carbon fibre lamination, to the painting of the frame and ending with the assembly of the frame into a complete bike.
With this special edition of our signature model Diamante SV we wanted to tell you more about how our carbon frames are made. The graphic enhances the thread of the fibres in specific areas of the frame. You will see for example that on the head tube area the fibres are placed in multiple
directions to contrast the torsion that is generated when applying force on the handlebar.’
The Basso Diamante SV Frameset is one for the aero-lovers. Its tube shapes are able to cut through the air like blades and the rear turbulence is almost non-existent.
The Diamante SV is an evolution of the Diamante; a bike that is already known for its lightness, superb handling on extreme rides and fantastic downhill performance. Basso has improved the air penetration by designing new tube shapes and by making a straight blade front fork.
There’s much more to the Diamante SV than meets the eye. Further technologies employed can be seen below:
- 2Fit - Compatible with either mechanical or electronic groupsets
- Wind Shape - Aerodynamic shapes for maximum air penetration
- Blade Front - Semi-integrated front fork/frame/stem/headset for improved aerodynamics
- Comfort Kit - Handlebar height position adjustable by up to 2cm whilst maintaining the frames rigid characteristics
- Tapered headset - 1-1/8” to 1.5” tapered fork and headset for improved rigidity
- Carbon Tech - Manufactured with carbon fibres orientated at 0°/22°/45°, and with 3 types of woven carbon filaments: 1K, 3K and UD
- 3B Vibration Dampening - 3B triple point clamp and rubber gusset
- Alloy Free - Monocoque frame without aluminium reinforcement parts
