2019 Basso Venta
If you are looking for a classic racing bike that ticks all the modern technology boxes as well, the Basso Venta will be a great option. Made with the same care and attention to detail as Basso’s top of the line bikes, the Venta will offer both lightweight high performance and great value for money.
In over 40 years of building bikes in Italy, Basso has honed their design and construction skills to the point where they can take high to intermediate modulus carbon fiber TR50 and MR60 from Torayca and layer it to offer their ideal level of comfort, durability and responsiveness. The alchemist’s art of finding that perfect balance of stiffness, compliance and durability is something that Basso has long ago learned and refined. For the Venta, they have shaped the tubes to keep the classic appearance while not ignoring the need to introduce a certain amount of aero efficiency. And the conical shape of the head tube ensures the front end feels solid while encouraging responsive handling. Once you jump on this, you’ll really want to sprint into the next corner. The classic Italian racing geometry will just feel so snappy you’ll want to make the most of it. And the tight wheelbase will help you whip it down your favorite descents, likely faster than ever before without even trying.
What’s nice is that the Venta doesn’t ride just like a crit racer that you don’t want to be on for much more than a couple of hours. Basso has built in a nice level of compliance with the frame layup and especially the carbon fork so that fatiguing road chatter never reaches up to your backside and hands. The Basso designers have walked that fine line between raciness and endurance comfort with great agility, which makes the Venta a great bike for anyone just starting out trying to discover which type of cycling you like, or indeed the seasoned roadie who likes to do it all: races and long distance adventures.
Since the Venta is electronic and mechanical compatible, you can build it up as fancy as you like. It is a frame that is ready to be the foundation of your dream bike. Available in seven sizes, just about anyone can find a match, while the color schemes give the bike an air of understated but impressive craftsmanship.
The Basso Venta is a bike that will be able to stick with you through your toughest races and comfort you on your recovery coffee rides. It will help you fall in love with cycling every time you head out for a ride.
