11 tubes, tools, a desire to create and an order for one very large racing frame. From these few elements grew the first of what would become many labors of love for Alcide Basso. The company he grew from little more than a garage, his love for cycling and a desire to create lasting works of art capable of offering a better experience in the saddle. From humble beginnings to a prestigious present, the Basso brand maintans the same spirit from which the first frame was born: continuously innovate and research new methods to create a better frame, challenging conventional practices and developing new ones, to make the best frame and, consequentially, the best riding experience possible.
A better experience atop the saddle isnt quantifiable and must be experienced to appreciate. Better handling, reliable and exciting performance and a ride quality that leaves you feeling inspired to ride further, harder and faster can’t be measured on a scale. As such, Basso doesn’t seek to develop the lightest bikes but rather the lightest bike that can ride like a Basso should.
At Basso it is all about the ride. There most certainly exist lighter bikes, more aero bikes, but none that ride, handle and inspire like a Basso. Every fiber in its construction, every angle in its geometry and every shape of every tube in a Basso frame is designed around the never-ending quest to produce a total ride experience that redefines the joy in performance cycling. #ridebetterridebasso
