Why we have chosen this bike

Basso represents an authentic Italian brand. Unlike the vast majority of frames that are made in large factories in Asia, Basso frames are hand-made at the Basso Factory in Bassano del Grappa in Italy. Attention to detail and ultimate quality are trademarks of the Basso brand - which aligns the brand very nicely with Thomson’s very own core values.

The end result is a beautifully built bike with phenomenal handling that totally impressed all of our ride leaders!
