2021 Basso Venta

Thoroughbred Italian Carbon At An Incredible Price Point

After two decades of fantastic performance, ground breaking design and unrivaled Italian craftsmanship, the Venta model celebrated its 20th year in 2020. And to celebrate the Venta’s  glorious past, Basso introduced a completely new design that is as technically sound as it is beautiful – delivering exception levels of performance and quality at an accessible price point.

The new Venta blends head turning and function-driven design with performance that makes it a more than capable race-ready steed. Sleek lines and minimalist graphics make sure that this frame is one of the most elegant within its category. While aesthetics go a long way into defining the beauty of the Venta, it is the craftsmanship that sets this frame apart from its competition. Made by hand, by Basso and with the same extreme attention to quality and detail used to make the most premium frames in Basso’s range, the Venta represents a fantastic value proposition – and it’s available for both disc and rim brakes too.

Its beautiful shape and construction are enhanced with advanced features, generally reserved for higher tier offerings, making the Venta a cut above other bikes in its category, even before you factor in Basso’s levels of Italian craftsmanship.  Internal cable routing and integrated seat post clamp make for a clean aesthetic and an undeniable premium look, while the oversized bottom bracket and down tube meet with a reinforced head tube junction to resist torsional stress and result in extremely efficient power transfer. No power loss to flex means more efficient riding, more energy for the final sprint and more speed for equivalent watts.

A more modern geometry with a slightly shorter reach and 1cm higher bar position gives additional comfort to the meticulously developed carbon layup, created to deliver structure that is both reactive and comfortable. The straight fork, slightly steeper head angle, and compact rear triangle make for extra responsive handling performance; making the Venta agile enough for even the fastest most technical situations.

Sharing many of the features of its sibling, the iconic Astra, the Venta is constructed from standard modulus carbon fibre with slightly simpler tube shapes – the result is a bike that rivals the performance of the Astra, and weighs just a few grams more. At just 910g for a medium sized frame, the Venta is still very much in the lightweight category!

To those who claim that quality construction and long lasting performance are concepts available to only a select few we have just one word: Venta.  After 20 years of continual development the Venta continues to represent the fantastic design premise of the original model. The latest version is a testament to the fact that impeccable craftsmanship, performance and design, built to race and built to last are qualities found throughout the entire range of Basso Bikes, no matter their price point.
