The Basso Diamante is the result of years of work to perfect the ultimate racing bike, that is timeless not only in terms of performance and reliability but also timeless in form and beauty. 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 just 0.2mm; a 50% improvement over previous models. The new frame has been optimized to allow for up to 28mm tires, thus increasing even further the Diamante’s versatility.
The integrated head tube/top tube not only provides superior manoeuvrability but also helps front end look cleaner and adds to the aero aesthetic. This also features split spacers which provide easy adjustment which then lock into position to ensure they don’t move or shift. These spacers feature an ‘Internal Blocking System’ to stop the cables from being pinched. The aero handlebar & stem combo for the Diamante SV is especially unique. It’s integrated to the frame, yet still modular in that you can adjust the handlebar fore and aft position to your liking. Full cable integration means a clean look throughout.
Like everything else Basso does, they’ve taken the idea of an integrated seat post and gone above and beyond what the industry have produced so far. The 3B seat post clamp system uses a rubber gusset surrounding the seat post which is capable of absorbing road vibrations in addition to representing one of the most elegant and effective solutions available.
Add that 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 already won as its every fibre 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. The Diamante is ideal for riders looking for a frame offering speed, stunning looks and modern Italian Design
