New Palta II builds on expertise gained from Basso’s extremely successful first model. While others tried to define gravel, Basso followed its own path. Born in racing and competitive by nature the Palta saw such great success as it applied the fantastic handling and ride quality from its years of expertise building road frames and applied them to a more versatile platform that was able to take on anything and do so at speed. The proof that adventure can be competitive, that performance doesn’t require a race number, that exploration is better with adrenaline and speed comes in the form of Palta II.

The word Palta, which in Italian dialect means “mud” or “dirt”, has gained an international following and universal respect thanks to its unrivalled versatility. Gravel takes on several definitions but no matter how you choose to ride the Palta delivers a fantastic riding experience as if it were specifically 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 frames 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.


NEW Frame & Fork

  • New design for the frame and fork with optimized carbon lay-up. Engineered for extreme performance as well as comfort, plus increased resistance to impact
  • The geometry of the fork blades offers precise handling as well as effective vibration dampening.
  • Increased tyre clearance of up to 45mm tyres with 700c wheels
  • Compatible with 1x or 2x Road & Gravel groupsets up to 52/36 chainrings

NEW Geometry

  • Minor changes have been made to the extremely versatile original Palta geometry:
  • An increased sloping value to allow more seatpost exposure for more comfort
  • A taller headtube for less spacers and more comfort. However, those seeking a more racing profile can still mount the stem flush with the headtube for a lower stack.
