Ride perfected

Stable, reactive, efficient and has got exceptional handling characteristics. The Basso Diamante is a versatile road racing bike that is capable of performing everywhere and in every type of racing scenario.

More than great geometry and fantastic craftsmanship or materials, the details behind the long list of technological solutions contribute greatly to its exceptionally versatile performance. The curved fork stands out amongst conventional design and adds a great deal of stability.

The Basso Diamante is hand made in Italy

Made by hand, in Italy, by Basso, the Diamante is a true representation of exactly what a fine, authentic Italian racing bike should be.

Using only the finest high modulus carbon fibre from Toray the Basso engineering staff have produced a frame capable of efficient performance that lasts and excels over all terrain.

The Basso Diamante Tube shapes and carbon layup allow for a reactive frame minimal flex and torsion.

Tube shapes and carbon layup allow for a reactive frame with bottom bracket flex of a mere 0.4mm and a head tube torsion of an amazingly low 0.2mm…a 50% improvement over previous models.

Available in both disc and rim versions, the new frame has been optimized to allow for up to 28mm tires, thus increasing even further the Diamante’s versatility.

To sum up – we’d say the Basso Diamante is an example of undeniable Italian design and class. Functionally beautiful and beautifully functional.
