A fine racing bike has one job and one job only: to aid its rider to go as fast as possible, under control and by consuming less energy. This is the design input behind the development of the Diamante. Extreme efficiency, reactivity and control render this frame capable of delivering incredible speedEvery tube in the Diamante construction has been optimized in terms of its internal structure and external form, using the most sophisticated ultra-high modulus carbon fibres available, to render the bike incredibly reactive and efficient. It is however the external form of these very tubes that have been meticulously studied to provide an overall aerodynamic advantage that benefits the rider in a versatile manner.The fork continues this obsession for aerodynamics and speed by providing wider spacing between the tyre and wheel allowing air to filter through with less hindrance. The fork has been designed to be vertically compliant, yet horizontally rigid. This simply means that the while there is some shock absorption within the Carbon lay-up of the fork, it's completely rigid and reliable when you're out of the saddle and sprinting.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 seatpost 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.Even the paintwork has been mixed and designed specifically to give the rider that edge over the competition. The 3D structure of new ceramic nano particles in the paint create a less porous and more compact finish that is more uniform than conventional paint, and less prone to drag. It is also said to be more durable than ever, even shedding water better.If the diamond is an example of perfection, then the DIAMANTE warrants its name as it encompasses all of the expertise the Basso brand has accumulated in over 40 years of experience constructing fine racing bikes by hand in Italy. Made to race, made to win, made to last, made by Basso. The Diamante is ready to become the road bike of your dreams, ideal for riders looking for a frame offering blistering speed, impeccable head-turning looks and the very best of Italian design, usually reserved for the riders in the Pro Peloton. With seven sizes available there's a Diamante SV designed to fit you perfectly.**Technology*** Windshape: Shaped to make you faster. Each and every tube in the construction of the Diamante has been made to reduce aerodynamic drag to a minimum, thus allowing you the rider to move forward faster and with less effort. Our aerodynamic approach seeks to develop a versatile design that takes into account the highly variable wind situations and angles that the rider may find themselves in. Aero optimized not for the wind tunnel but rather for the real world.* Carbon Fibre Frame Technology: Basso was among the first to research, develop and employ carbon in its frames. By not only building with carbon but researching new methods and techniques to continually improve performance, reliability and durability the Basso frame is an advanced piece of technology that rivals anything else on the market and rides like only a Basso can. The beauty of such technology is that the fantastic ride quality that derives from such engineering is permanent, making the Basso frame perform equally after several seasons' use as it did on the first day. Invest in Basso Composite technology, it'll pay dividends for your cycling future.* Vibration Dampening: The advantages of the rubber clamp system are multiple. Beautiful because of its simplicity and nearly invisible form, functional thanks to its ingenious design. Not only does the triple point clamping system confer a lightweight, extremely sturdy and reliable grip but it is designed in such a way to allow for an incredible amount of vibration dampening as well. Strong and safe grip, increased comfort and sleek design from one tiny component that most overlook.**Frame Specs:*** Sizes: L * Compatible with Electronic & Mechanical groupsets* Cable Integration: Fully Integrated* Brakes: Rim* Bottom Bracket: BB86 86.5 x 41* Headset: Fully Integrated* Tyre Clearance: Up to 28mm* Warranty: Covered under Basso's 2 Year warranty, which can be extended by an extra year on registering your purchase with Basso* Frameset Weight: 820g**Bike Specifications*** Components: Campagnolo Record 11x EPS groupset* Chainset: Campagnolo Record 11X Carbon * Rim Brakes: Campagnolo Record Direct Mount* Cassette: Campagnolo Chorus 11X * Chain: Campagnolo Chorus 11x* Saddle: San Marco Monza * Stem/Seatpost: Basso Integrated* Handlebar Deda elementi Zero* Wheelset: Deda Sl48C Stealth black Carbon wheels tubeless ready & Ceramic bearings* Tyres: Schwalbe One Performance TLE 700x28c**Spec may be subject to change due to availability**
