Diamante

Configure it
In nature the diamond comes about through years and years of pressure that result in a precious gem whose beauty and timelessness knows no rival. The Basso Diamante too is the result of years of hard work, research and pressure to develop the finest racing bike that is timeless not only in terms of performance and reliability but also in form and beauty.

Made by hand, in Italy, by Basso, the Diamante represents a true representation of exactly what a fine, authentic Italian racing bike should be. Using only the finest high modulus carbon fiber from Toray the Basso engineering staff have produced a frame capable of efficient performance that lasts and excels over all terrain. 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.

Add to the tried, trusted and approved Basso geometry an elegant front end that allows the flexible rider to achieve an extremely aggressive position while allowing the more upright rider to maintain a front end more compact in appearance. If looking good is half the battle then the Diamante has the battle won as its every fiber is meant for moving faster and in a more efficient manner yet its form is an example of undeniable Italian design and class. Functionally beautiful and beautifully functional: Basso Diamante.
Shaped to make you faster. Each and every tube in the construction of this model has been made to reduce aerodynamic drag to a minimum, thus allowing you the rider to move forward faster and with less effort. Our aerodynamic approach seeks to develop a versatile design that takes into account the highly variable wind situations and angles that the rider may find themselves in. Aero optimized not for the wind tunnel but rather for the real world.
Basso was among the first to research, develop and employ carbon in its frames. By not only building with carbon but researching new methods and techniques to continually improve performance, reliability and durability the Basso frame is an advanced piece of technology that rivals anything else on the market and rides like only a Basso can. The beauty of such technology is that the fantastic ride quality that derives from such engineering is permanent, making the Basso frame perform equally after several seasons’ use as it did on the first day. Invest in Basso Composite technology, it’ll pay dividends for your cycling future.
Ready to Race. Firstly because we say so… but this Basso frame has also been submitted, tested and approved by the cycling world’s governing body, the UCI. Throw a leg over the Basso and you’ll approve to.
Elegant integration must be both functional and beautiful. Tube shapes together with 360° product design with components designed to seamlessly align and function with the complete system make for both better looks and better performance. Fork/Frame/Headset/Stem blend and function as one cohesive design unit.
A better name would be the stealth kit as its primary function is to allow you the rider to find your perfect position without adding obvious spacers. The meticulously studied solution from the Basso R+D department allows both flexible riders with low positions and those requiring a more upright front end to have an equally elegant set-up.
The advantages of the 3B clamp system are multiple. Beautiful because of its simplicity and nearly invisible form, functional thanks to its ingeneous design. Not only does the triple point clamping system confer a lightweight, extremely sturdy and reliable grip but it is designed in such a way to allow for an incredible amount of vibration dampening as well. Strong and safe grip, increased comfort and sleek design from one tiny component that most overlook.
To ensure optimum rigidity and, as a result, better handling along with increased reactivity a tapered headset is included in the design of this frame. The 1 1/8” to 1 ½” headset influences greatly the manuverability and ride feeling that derives from any frame design.
The Double Fit frame is capable of being built with either mechanical or electronic groupsets. Choose your preference, we will make sure hte final product is as fast as possible.
Through meticulous research and development the Basso carbon frame is developed to be designed and built without the incorporation of alternative, contrasting materials. Advanced carbon technologies allow for all lieces to be constructed, without compromise and with incerased integrity, wholly in carbon fiber and completely without the incorporation of alloy or metal components. A pure ride made from pure material

Diamante

The Diamante follows only the footsteps of its previous versions as it leads all others in the category of essential race bikes. The classic lines, flawless geometry and rounded tube shapes meet with a construction aimed at offering race winning performance that lasts to create the perfect tool for the trade no matter where, how or over what terrain you race

More than meets the eye

An essentially essential frame eliminates all superfluous design elements and concentrates on its core mission: racing. The elegant and minimalistic design hides the story of an extremely complex design. The finest materials available manufactured with care and laid into place, by hand, in accordance to meticulous studies on material and shape behavior confer to the frame a performance riding experience that quickly conquers the emotions of even the most demanding cyclist.

Ride, Perfected

Stable, reactive, efficient and handles as if it had four wheels instead of two the 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.

Integrated Front-End

The head tube/top tube junction provides yet another example of unconventional design as it allows the headset to sit below the top tube, allowing for not only better maneuverability but also a cleaner aesthetic.

3B Clamp System

While integrated seat post clamps are not uncommon, the Basso solution goes beyond merely holding the seatpost in the desired position. The 3B seatpost clamp is capable of absorbing road vibrations in addition to representing one of the most elegant and effective solutions available.
