Adventure requires the ability to adapt to a wide variety of conditions and the Palta does just that. Ample tire clearance for up to 42mm rubber allows the rider to dial his or her ride perfectly for the road, the rough stuff and everything in between. The meticulously designed layup of the 100% Torayca High Modulus carbon fiber used in the Palta’s construction, along with its unconventional gravel shape, leaves every rider stunned at just how smooth a reactive and fast frame can be across all terrain.
”it can devour the flats, it can sail up the climbs and scythe down steep, gravel descents with poise and precision” CyclingNews
Gravel attracts cyclists for a wide variety of reasons, but the Basso Palta attracts gravel riders for largely the same motives: quality Italian craftsmanship, long lasting performance and a ride quality that begs for speed. The same qualities that have made Basso frames so highly coveted on the road find themselves incorporated into the Palta, although adapted for the versatile nature of gravel.
