Gravel attracts cyclists for a wide variety of reasons but the Basso Palta attracts gravel riders for largely the same motives: quality craftsmanship, long lasting performance and a ride quality that begs for speed. The same qualities that have made the Basso frames so highly coveted on the road find themselves incorporated into the Palta, although adapted for the versatile nature of gravel. While others do gravel #wedopalta
Gravel takes on several definitions but no matter how you choose to ride the Palta delivers a fantastic riding experience as if it were speficially designed for your particular type of riding for any given day. Compliant enough to smooth out the roughest terrain yet remaining as reactive and efficient as our road specific platforms the Palta leaves even the most demanding cyclist wondering where this frame makes a compromise. Basso, since its inception, creates speed solutions for the road. The Palta maintains that same speed over any terrain, in comfort and control. Versatility has a new name: Palta.
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 inbetween. The meticulously studied layup of the 100% Torayca High Modulus carbon fiber used in the Palta’s construction, along with its unconventional gravel shape, leave the rider amazed at just how smooth a reactive and fast frame can be across all terrain.
Ready for any type of riding and any type of ride, the Palta takes on design elements that see it fit for all scenarios. 7 bottle cage bolts for carrying up to three water bottles increases the autonomy of the rider and increases the potential adventures he or she can take on.
Perhaps the most recognizeable design element of the Palta comes in the form of the fork. Its particular shape is not only pleasing to the eye but also to the senses as the form and carbon layup confer increased handling precision and comfort.
