A sure ride for those wanting assurance of a frame designed purely for speed and endurance
Perfectionism, quality and handmade excellence. Since 1977 founder Alcide Basso has imposed those qualities upon everything under the Cicli Basso Brand. The principles that define Basso, a family Company, remain unchanged: Excellent craftsmanship, innovative design, functionality, and top quality materials.
The new hi-modulus carbon fibre monocoque frame uses Basso experience in the placement of the direction of the single layers of fibres, creating a main triangle with optimized shaped profiles, which allows a higher resistance to flex and torsion, with as much weight reduction as possible. Astra is a 100% carbon monocoque frame including the bottom bracket and all the bearing housings.
The result is a single mould process without the use of different materials.
The larger basis of the head tube creates a wider and more rigid surface, erasing the weaker structural spots. The new BB shell construction and the carbon fibre bottom bracket shell made from a single moulding, allows us to have a perfect compact structure which gives torsion-free pedalling even at extreme loads, and keeps the weight as low as possible. Brand monocoque fork with the 1”-1/8 upper bearing housed directly in the carbon.
Weight of full bike from 6.8 kg.Contact Chainsmith for more information.
