2021 Basso Astra

Sublime Italian-Made Lightweight Road Machine

For nearly 30 years the iconic Astra has been hand-made in the Basso factory in northeastern Italy. The latest in this long line of prestigious frames is one that represents the cumulative knowledge and experience gained from building the previous five generations of Astra.  The result is the best Astra yet – smooth, fast, efficient with characteristically refined Basso handling, making it ideal for all kinds of road conditions.  From flat lands to mountains; from road racing to day long back road exploration – the Basso Astra is a legend for good reason!

Basso Astra

True to its Basso DNA, the Astra is a thoroughbred road bike ready to take you further, faster and with more confidence. The straight fork and rear triangle take design cues from the Astra’s dedicated pro-road race siblings in the Basso family, and as such offer a similar level of reactive and responsive handling. Basso have tweaked the geometry of the latest Astra to deliver the perfect blend of snappy handling and acceleration, with a modern riding position that enables you to ride longer with less fatigue.

Basso Astra

Constructed from 100% 3k Torayca High Modulus Carbon Fibre, the Astra is capable of offering pro level performance, with the only compromise coming in the form of a just few extra grams over its Diamante stablemates. The integrated seatpost clamp, internally routed cables, and premium paint job, together with the most elegant stem in the cycling world, create a frame that turns heads in terms of performance and elegance.  The Basso Astra is ideal for riders looking for a high spec frame with the technology and concepts of a World Tour ride, with a more modest price tag.

Basso Astra

The latest Astra pushes the limits farther than any of its predecessors, and does so with a huge dose of Italian style. Created entirely in house by the skilled hands of the Basso staff, the latest Astra frameset features a new larger, stiffer head tube joined to an aerodynamically efficient downtube, made more so thanks to its elegant side “channels”. Both tubes combine in turn with a super stiff bottom bracket shell and completely redesigned chain stays to form a complete unit of the lower tubes (head tube, down tube, chainstays) that delivers fantastic power transfer.  The upper part of the frameset (seat tube, top tube and newly dropped seat stays ) work together with an all new fork to smooth out road nose and ensure that you arrive at the end of your ride felling as fresh as possible – they also enhance the balance of the Astra, providing the lightness of feel and precise handling that has become a Basso trademark.
