The history of the Basso brand is full of honors, awards and beautiful bikes, thanks to the desire to continuously improve the cycling experience with each new product that bears our name. However, the honors bestowed on the Basso range over the past few months make for a year that will be difficult to match moving forward.
To start of the festivities the DIAMANTE SV was awarded with the title of TOUR MAGAZINE’s Bike of the Year title. Such an honor holds even more weight as it was not the editorial staff who voted but rather the over 30 thousand readers who participated in the survey who bestowed the honor upon our fastest racing platform.
While the pinnacle of the range brought home an amazing award during the EUROBIKE show, it was the new entry level VENTA that, in April, was awarded for Best Racing Bike in the category "racing bike under € 3,000" by the prestigious German magazine Rennrad Magazine. Such an award meant the world to us here at Basso HQ as we strive to create a uniform level of performance and reliability, representing great value and pride no matter what price range the given cyclist is shopping for. This award confirmed that we are on the right track and that from top to bottom of the range the cyclist isnt buying a model but a guarantee in quality.
Awards have come at the top of the range and also at the entry level on the road… but the PALTA has been extremely succesful in the gravel market and has ensured that Basso takes home yet another trophy, only this time far away from the asphalt! Our Palta has been named Gravel Bike of the Year by our friends at Top Velo in France. Such a recognition fills us with pride as our first foray off-road, the result of countless hours of hard work and a dedication to our ideals of what a fantastic bike should be, was met with near unanimous respect.
The multitude of awards bestowed on the brand might be reason for some to rest and celebrate. However, although we are extremely happy with a growing palmares, just like a cyclist, the latest victory is only fuel to train harder for the next race. We will take to the development of the next range of Basso bikes with even more energy than before.
