The new Diamante is a statement of the Basso Bikes identity that is represented by timeless elegance, care to details that belong to highly experienced artisans, excellent craftmanship and use of the best and most performing materials.
We have updated the tubing shapes, improved the materials and further developed the technology. In this new model design and R&D meet in the rounded tubing that allow an increase in performance. Bottom bracket flex is now 0.2mm and head tube tortion 0.4 mm, a 50% improved performance on the previous Diamante model. We have updated the tire clearance to 28 mm and brought the newly developed "3B seat clamp system" from the Diamante SV. Frame kit includes seat post, stem, three Basso carbon spacers and the new 10 mm Diamante spacer. Diamante is now available with Disk brakes or direct mount rim brakes and in five exclsive and proprietary colors: Lunar Blue, Rubin Red, Italia, Selenite Gray and Electric Sky.
The Diamante utilizes Toray T1000 and T800 HI Modulus carbon fiber pre-preg. A widely used fiber in the automotive, aviation and military industries, our Toray is made even more resistant to impacts and fatigue stress through our use of specific proprietary resins.
The “monolithic” front frame section, made by the semi-integrated front fork / frame / stem / headset, provides a more aerodynamic and aggressive position, ideal for ProRacers; for those who require a less “stretched”, more raised position, a conical shaped spacer is available (comfort kit). The conical shaped spacer rests on the base of the headset and effectively raise the stem without losing the linearity of the headtube form. Additionally, a new upper fork shape has been developed to virtually stretch into the lower part of the frame allowing the steering stresses to be discharged over a wider surface and thereby facilitating manoeuvrability in challenging curves.
The DIAMANTE measurements are by far the best results found by comparison with other frames of the highest range on the market.
