2019 Basso Ulisse

If you are the type of rider who frequently hears the siren call of adventure, then the Basso Ulisse steel disc brake road bike will be an ideal match for your wildest dream rides. The Ulisse is a longtime favorite in the Basso lineup, and something that they initially developed 30 years ago to be ridden across the North American continent.

As such, this is definitely an endurance oriented bike. The steel tubing comes from Krup in Germany, and offers an excellent level of durability while keeping the stiffness to weight ratio perfectly in line with modern expectations. The ride quality is what you really will write home about with the Ulisse. It gives you that magic carpet ride that we often hear about but very rarely experience. The fact that you can fit up to 35mm tires on this frame will only add to its level of comfort and in fact durability. The geometry will give you a pleasantly relaxed position so that you won’t be stressing your back after hours on the road.

Looking at the frame, you can see that this is a seriously classic design with the lugged tubing, squared off fork crown, and built-in mud guard attachments, but this is also a modern creation, so you will get the disc brakes that will ensure not only that it will brake like a modern machine, but they also make it possible to fit those wider, more comfortable tires on even if you include the mud guards. Please note, though that the mud guards do not come with the bike, but would need to be an after-purchase option. The frame will work with mechanical groupsets, and the external cable routing will help keep things simple, especially if you are forced to do some on-the-road repairs during your longer excursions.

Basso is all about loving the journey as much as getting there faster than anyone. And if your route takes an unexpected turn, that should be fun and worry-free as well with the expertly designed Basso Ulisse. Available in six sizes, there should be a Ulisse that will fit you perfectly on your next cycling odyssey.
