The next frontier

The proof that adventure can be competitive, that performance doesn’t require a race number, that exploration is better with adrenaline and speed…Comes in the form of Palta.

Others observe, we experience: Others do gravel, we do Palta

While others tried to define gravel, we marked our own path.
Others tried to follow a definition that didn’t exist, we created one coherent with our DNA:


Minor changes were made to the extremely versatile Palta geometry.


Incresed sloping value to allow more seatpost exposure and flex leading to increased comfort.


Taller headtube for less spacers and more comfort. But we didn’t forget about the racers… Riders will have the possibility to mount the stem flush with the head tube for lower stack. #SlamThatStem


The design of the Palta II follows the philosophy of maintaining the overwhelmingly long list of positive elements from the first version and improving, where possibile.


The unique geometry of the advanced fork stays confer both a more precise handling as well as vibration dampening to the ride quality.

Air Flow

Larger spacing between tire and fork allows for better air flow and increased clearance.

3B Clamp System Gen 2

A totally hidden fixing solution that is invisible on the frame, intertwining technological and aesthetic innovation.

The result is a lightweight, invisible and strong integrated system with three screws, which has been further implemented through the vulcanization of the steel plank. This Basso solution gives the 3B system an anti-vibration function, which improves the riding experience by elevating comfort on uneven and bumpy surfaces.

Paradigma Integration System

“At Basso we take nothing for granted. We believe in engineering as the baseline, attention to detail and beauty. With this attitude, we took the path that led us to the development of the new Paradigm Integration System: stem, spacers, head-set”.

Ergonomics & Comfort

Developed from the ground up taking off road comfort as the main focus, we reduced the section of the handlebar to integrate a 4.5 mm thickness bar tape and studied ergonomics in all hands positions, from the tops to the drops.
