Basso has unveiled the latest iteration of its flagship Diamante SV road bike, touting revised geometry, newly shaped tube profiles and full cable integration, as well as a redesigned rear triangle.
“While improving upon past success is never easy, taking an award-winning and universally lauded platform and making it not only faster but better proved to be a herculean task. Basso, thanks to its competitive nature and desire to evolve, enjoyed the challenge and the end result demonstrates the effort, attention to detail and passion that went into this project. A perfect blend of carryover tech and new design make for a better, best Basso,” says the storied Italian brand.
Indeed, it’s easy to glean that the updated Diamante SV has cleaner lines, thanks to a more streamline downtube, headtube and fork, as well as full front-end cable integration courtesy of Basso’s reshaped aero stem and carbon handlebar that now routes cabling via new internal channels.
It’s also clear that Basso’s premium aero bike features lower profile seatstays, aimed at delivering greater stability as well as reactiveness, along with a more robust bottom bracket shell for increased stiffness and better power transfer. And, for those wanting more rubber between them and the tarmac, there’s now enough clearance for 32mm tires.
The styling quotient was also upped on the new Diamante SV, offering three new exciting colorways called Black Chameleon, Sharp Silver and Pastel White.
Additionally, Basso claims the structure of its new 3D-ceramic, nano paint also improves the bike’s aerodynamic signature by way of a “less porous and more compact” finish that’s “less prone to drag”.
The Diamante SV is available in disc brake only, with seven sizes ranging from 48 to 63.
Basso also has an online configurator that allows customers to spec their bikes from an array of groupsets, wheels and cockpit components.
