Entering its 40th year of operation, Basso simultaneously begins not just a new decade, but a new relationship: R&A has now partnered with the storied brand. We are excited to make available to our customers Basso's two highest-end models: the Diamante and the Diamante SV. One, a dedicated race machine, the other, a bit more balanced – but both are designed for superior speed and performance.
Both Diamante versions utilize not one, not two, but three types of carbon fiber, each in different densities and different orientations throughout the frame. No aluminum alloy or any other metals are used for structural reinforcement anywhere.See the Basso line
Both the Diamante and Diamante SV feature Basso's Comfort Kit head tube configuration, allowing the rider to stack the headtube as much as 20mm higher, for a more relaxed fit, without compromising structural integrity or stiffness.See the Basso line
The Diamante and Diamante SV framesets are both handmade and hand-painted at the company's facility just outside of Venice, Italy. Precision and consistency take precedent over speed in production, reflecting Basso's tradition of innovation without sacrificing craft.See the Basso line
