Please note: all of our bike models come with an EU standard brake setup. This will need to be reversed to comply with UK cycling standards.
A good road bike has only one job and only one job: It should help the rider to ride as fast as possible, to ride in a controlled manner and to use less energy. This is the creative contribution to the development of the DIAMANTE SV. Extreme efficiency, reactivity and control make this frame able to give great speed, hence the nickname SV or SUPER VELOCE.
Each tube in the Diamante SV's construction has been optimized in terms of its internal structure and external shape, using the highest quality carbon fibers available with ultra-high modulus to make the bike amazingly reactive and efficient. However, it is the external shape of these tubes that has been meticulously studied to achieve an overall aerodynamic advantage that benefits the rider in many ways. Sensible aerodynamic design coupled with an extremely solid structure and race-proven rider-approved basso geometry create a speed demon that behaves like a supercar.
SV stands for SUPER VELOCE
If the diamond is an example of perfection, then the DIAMANTE SV deserves its name because it incorporates all the know-how that the Basso brand has accumulated over 40 years in the manufacture of high-quality racing frames by hand. Thanks to the work of the engineers, the SV becomes the crown jewel of the Basso line. The SV is the racing bike of the racer. It is designed to give the rider the best and most efficient riding experience in terms of handling, reactivity, aerodynamics, efficiency and reliability. Ultimately, to ensure a performance that creates not only pleasure but also confidence. As reliable as such a frame can be... over and over again.
Shaped to go faster
The shape of the SV is designed not only for efficiency, but also for aerodynamics that convert every watt into propulsion. All to guarantee a riding experience that lives up to the name "Super Veloce". Thanks to the Basso aerodynamic concept, the Diamante SV is able to reduce drag, making it not only a "beautiful frame" but also functional! Thus SV stands for a fantastic power transmission and excellent aerodynamics for low drag.
Redefining ride quality
Extreme speed is the result of a mixture of excellent handling, aerodynamics and efficient power transmission. The oversized bottom bracket is coupled with the large down tube and stiff chainstays, allowing the Diamante SV to transfer every watt into forward motion. However, the shape not only contributes to an optimal power transmission but also to a riding quality like you have never experienced before. Curves feel straighter, braking is less necessary and downhill after downhill you will always rediscover the joy of cycling and the pleasure of speed.
Veloce SUPER VELOCE
The first impression is rarely wrong and if you just look at or drive the Diamante SV, the idea of elegant looks and extreme speed comes to mind. This idea does not stay and does not disappear, but is confirmed kilometre by kilometre. Experience Basso, experience - Super Veloce. Made for races and victories, brought to life by Basso.
