Beauty, elegance and performance have never looked so good, until now.
The new Diamante is a statement of the Basso Bikes identity that is represented by timeless elegance, care to details that belong to highly experienced artisans, excellent craftsmanship and use of the best and most performing materials.
We have updated the tubing shapes, improved the materials and further developed the technology.
Every Basso Carbon bike is handmade in their own factory in Treviso, Italy. Each is crafted with their own technique with carbon fibre moulds, low curing temperatures and finished in their paint shop just up the road. The factory is also a production centre for other industry making carbon fibre parts for MotoGP, Formula1, World Rally Championship and the Italian military. So to say they are masters of their craft is an understatement.
Their paint facility is world class, having studied from the masters at Mercedes Benz, many of their colours, techniques and paint schemes are inspired by motorsport.
In this new model design and R&D meet in the rounded tubing that allows an increase in performance. Bottom bracket flex is now 0.4mm and head tube torsion 0.2 mm, a 50% improvement in performance on the previous Diamante model.
We have updated the tire clearance to 28 mm and brought the newly developed "3B seat clamp system" from the Diamante SV, further improving comfort while improving stiffness and overall reactivity to any pedal input.
The rear triangle is incredibly efficient, lunging forward with every pedal stroke, while the 3B seat post clamp and elastomer insert deaden vibration from the road, with together with the ability to run larger rubber keep the ride planted and forgiving. The front end is a perfect balance of confidence and agility, think, look and the Diamante follows.
Diamante is available in five exclusive and proprietary colours: Lunar Blue, Rubin Red, Italia, Selenite Gray and Electric Sky.
Frame kit includes seat post, stem, three Basso carbon spacers and the new 10 mm Diamante spacer.
