2020 Basso Astra Disc

By adding disc brakes to the Basso Astra Disc, the classic Italian brand has created one of the most high performing and practical racing and training bike you could ever find at such a reasonable price point. The mix of responsive kick and stable handling makes the Astra Disc a joy to swing a leg over.

The monocoque frame of the Astra Disc has been built to keep the bike light without compromising on durability or comfort. Finding that balance is essential for the overall ride quality. Basso makes their frames in Italy so they know a thing or two about how best to place the carbon when layering the frame. The tube shapes have been chosen to maximize rigidity to make it positively snap when you are pushing the pace out of the saddle. They have also been sculpted to offer great aero advantage.

Using 3K Torayca High Modulus Carbon Fiber in T700-MR60 gives the frame a level of compliance that will help absorb those fatiguing road vibrations. The fact that the bottom bracket shell has been made from a single molding means that they have been able to produce it to be seriously stiff and resistant to torsional forces even at extreme loads. It also means that the minimum of material has needed to be used, keeping the weight low. They have also been able to reinforce those areas of the frame that will need to be especially sturdy on account of the different forces exerted when the disc brakes are applied.

To ensure the handling is precise, Basso includes their own stem design that uses headset spacers to get exactly the stack setting you want while keeping the steering tight and responsive. The tapered head tube also adds to the overall beauty and reliability of the handling with a monocoque fork to help absorb vibration and rail control. And the race-oriented geometry still manages to give you the options for as comfortable and relaxed position as you need.

The Basso Astra Disc will be the perfect option for anyone keen to make the most out of every road ride. It’s ideal for weekend races and summertime adventures alike. Available in six sizes and multiple color schemes, the Astra Disc will quickly work its way into your cyclist’s heart.
