The new hi-modulus carbon fibre monocoque frame uses Basso experience in the placement of the direction of the single layers of fibres,
creating a main triangle with optimized shaped profiles,
which allows a higher resistance to flex and torsion, with as much weight reduction as possible.
Astra is a 100% carbon monocoque frame including the bottom bracket and all the bearing housings.
The result is a single mould process without the use of different materials.
The cone shaped and edge profiled head tube, which links directly to the two main tubes of the front triangle
and in a continuous line to the rear seat stays,
give to the Astra not only a unique look, but also allows us to maximize ridigity and strenght
with increased riding precision and great reactivity in the standing position.
