DIAMANTEThe Diamante utilizes Toray T1000 and T800 HI Modulus carbon fiber pre-preg. A widely used fiber in the automotive, aviation and military industries, our Toray is made even more resistant to impacts and fatigue stress through our use of specific proprietary resins.
The “monolithic” front frame section, made by the semi-integrated front fork / frame / stem / headset, provides a more aerodynamic and aggressive position, ideal for ProRacers; for those who require a less “stretched”, more raised position, a conical shaped spacer is available (comfort kit). The conical shaped spacer rests on the base of the headset and effectively raise the stem without losing the linearity of the headtube form. Additionally, a new upper fork shape has been developed to virtually stretch into the lower part of the frame allowing the steering stresses to be discharged over a wider surface and thereby facilitating manoeuvrability in challenging curves.
The DIAMANTE measurements are by far the best results found by comparison with other frames of the highest range on the market.

The MAAP-Basso Team are a group of mates that ride and race together in Melbourne. The team is not just about racing and results; it epitomises what it's like to be an amateur racer, picking out events on the calendar but always finding time in between training for a coffee spin with mates or a weekend away.
“We have teamed up with MAAP because we like the style of the brand and the products. I think the team will be great at the local crits, and events. I hope we can always make nice and fresh bikes for MAAP.” - Alessandro Basso.
