Basso’s highest expression differs in the two directions it pursues: verticality and horizontality.
Diamante is devoted to the slopes, to the differences in height, to the most rugged climbs.
Diamante SV is perfectionism on the plan, surgical precision and obsession with performance.
The same DNA, Ride Perfected, is expressed in two similar but at the same time very different bicycles, designed to unleash the potential of different types of cyclists.
Super Veloce, Super Versatile. A perfect blend of technology and design makes the Diamante SV the fastest and most versatile road racing bike from Basso. Aerodynamic and snappy, it performs in every situation, both when pedaling consistently at high speeds and when you want to sprint. The measures are designed to improve comfort work, but it remains a bike with a strong race setting.
Devoted to slopes due to its vocation for climbs and descents, Diamante is a versatile road racing bike, designed to excel in the most demanding ups and downs. Careful engineering work has made it possible to further reduce the weight by over 200 grams, allowing the complete bike to be mounted while easily remaining under the UCI weight limit (6.8 kg).
A unique design, the result of extremely complex engineering, refined over the years detail by detail. A timeless aesthetic, capable of interpreting the contemporary. The search for the balance between lightness and stability, making the most of the characteristics of carefully hand-worked carbon.
The Diamante SV frame is designed to help cyclists go as fast as possible, safely, and with the lowest possible energy consumption.
Each tube in the construction of the Diamante SV has been optimized in terms of internal structure and external shape, using the most sophisticated ultra-high modulus carbon fibers available, to make the bike surprisingly responsive and effective. However, the meticulously designed outer shape of these same tubes gives the bike the ability to provide an extraordinary aerodynamic advantage. The aerodynamic design and the extremely solid and race-proven structure, combined with the Basso geometry developed for competition, give life to a bike dedicated to speed, which is handled like a supercar.
Diamante introduces an optimized geometry for climbing and descending, with a shortened chain stay and a longer front wheelbase to allow responsiveness at low speeds (uphill) and stability at high speeds (downhill).
In the areas where energy is generated and discharged – the bottom bracket and steering area -, the circular shape, in addition to reducing the thickness and weight of the tubes, gives greater torsional rigidity so that all the pedaling energy is translated into advancement and riding precision.
The geometry of the Diamante SV is distinguished by the collected rear triangle which always makes it reactive, dynamic at high speeds, and precise when changing direction (as in the case of a flat race with tight curves). Basso has studied the fork’s structure to make it vertically comfortable and horizontally rigid.
Not only produced and painted: Diamante and Diamante SV are also assembled by hand according to customer specifications. Basso’s network of excellence, thanks to partner companies specialized in group and wheels – Sram, Shimano, Campagnolo, DT Swiss – offers the possibility to choose between 5 different groupsets and 4 wheel models.
Any good seat positioning begins with the correct choice of size. This will allow you to benefit from more efficient driving, maximum performance and better comfort. Basso, in addition to the frames, also develops the components for tuning. You can configure your Diamante or Diamante SV by choosing between two different seat posts, with 0 or 15mm offset, and 6 different integrated handlebars to offer the best riding experience.
Two different geometries but with elements in common. Diamante and Diamante SV share the same wheelbase but in different ratios. In the Diamante, the chainstay is shortened, while the front is lengthened so as to optimize it for ascent and descent. In the Diamante SV the ratio is reversed, preferring speed and precision on flat routes.
