To celebrate forty-five years of building Italian bikes, Basso is issuing an ultra-limited edition, super-premium Basso Diamante SV 45° Anniversario road bike and unique Basso experience, “protected” by its own NFT. What you get for their 45th anniversary is one of just 45 special edition carbon road bikes built up with a killer Campagnolo Super Record + Lightweight Meilenstein build including an all-new carbon cockpit, a custom Scicon bag to take the bike everywhere you go, and a 3-night trip for two to visit Basso where your bike was made…
Basso Diamante SV 45th Anniversary road bike experience
Basso Bikes says that from the first framesets that Alcide Basso built in northern Italy in 1977, the process had always been about “providing the best riding experience on a bike”. So now that Basso Bikes is 45 years old, they decided to celebrate the milestone not just with a special edition bike, but a full bike experience for their well-heeled clientele. The result is this super bike Diamante SV 45° Anniversario build, a big kit of custom 45th Basso accessories, and the invitation to visit them in Bassano del Grappa, Italy.
45° Anniversario Build & Bundle Details
The Basso Diamante SV 45° Anniversario bike itself starts off with the fully-integrated, disc brake Diamante SV carbon aero road bike. But it gets a special edition finish decked out in a custom of shiny white & rose gold paint, accented with Blue Sapphire chrome in honor of the 45th ‘Sapphire Anniversary’.
Basso calls it a collector’s item, but by all means, it’s also a “very high-performance bicycle” they expect to be ridden.
The build features an all-new by Basso fully integrated, lightweight one-piece Levita carbon handlebar & stem cockpit.
But the real component highlights are a complete Campagnolo Super Record EPS 12speed electronic disc brake groupset…
…a set of full-carbon (hubs, spokes & rim) Lightweight Meilenstein Disc wheels, topped off with an ultralight 95g Selle Italia SLR Boost Tekno Superflow saddle.
As for accessories, the top will be the custom Scicon x Basso 45° Anniversario Aerocomfort Road 3.0 TSA bike travel case to keep your fancy new bike protected in transit. Apparently added to that will also be a “kit of complementary accessories dedicated to the anniversary to make the riding experience more complete” so we’re taking that to mean a special edition jersey, socks, etc.
Then finally, the Basso visit experience. Each of the 45 anniversary bikes will include a Basso Experience voucher for 2 people to come stay for 3-nights in Bassano del Grappa, where Basso is headquartered for a behind-the-scenes look at how they develop, test & manufacture bikes in northern Italy.
And to verify that it’s all legit, what better way these days than the blockchain. A unique non-fungible token, aka NFT, comes with each of the 45 numbered bikes as a certificate of authenticity and to register ownership of the Diamante SV 45° Anniversario bikes – and to “guarantee its future value”.
