About the Basso Diamante

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.

The 11-speed drivetrain features a Compact 50-34 crankset and an 11-32 cassette to help you spin up the steepest hills and then nail the descent on the other side. We’ve also included Disk brakes for the first time on a Thomson Rental Bike making the Basso Diamante the perfect tool to accompany you on a Thomson Bike Tours trip.
