As with any TRUE Italian product, merely being functional in its intended task is never enough. A design that stands the test of time and evokes emotion is one that is flawless in performance but goes about that performance with a style, class and elegance that has no expiration date. Every Basso frame is painstakingly produced to not only perform but do so exceptionally and in an elegant manner. The Basso frame is functionally beautiful and beautifully functional and as such represents a timeless beauty destined to age gracefully and turn heads for years to come. Performance and crafstmanship never go out of style. Elegant, sober and classic design is appreciable indefinitely. Combining the two is the Basso way.
While improving upon past success is never easy, taking an award-winning and universally lauded platform and making it not only faster but better proved to be a herculean task. Basso, thanks to its competitive nature and desire to evolve, enjoyed the challenge and the end result demonstrates the effort, attention to detail and passion that went into this project.
A perfect blend of carryover tech and new design make for a better, best Basso.
The 2021 Astra pushes the limits farther than any version before it and does so with a good dose of style. Produced entirely in house by the skilled hands of the Basso staff, the latest version of the Astra model incorporates a great deal of technology that derives from its upper tier siblings and adopts a design that follows a tighter family feeling than ever before.
To those who claim that quality construction and long lasting performance are concepts available to only a select few we have just one word: VENTA. Handmade by Basso with the same extreme attention to quality and detail used to make the most premium frames in the range, the Venta represents a fantastic value proposition. Made to race, made to last, the Venta is built to give lasting performance for years to come.
Gravel attracts cyclists for a wide variety of reasons but the Basso Palta attracts gravel riders for largely the same motives: quality craftsmanship, long lasting performance and a ride quality that begs for speed. The same qualities that have made the Basso frames so highly coveted on the road find themselves incorporated into the Palta, although adapted for the versatile nature of gravel.
