Carbon Basso
Recumbent Bike

MSRP: $4800

The Bacchetta Carbon Basso is a re-envisioning of our classic Ti Aero Basso. The Carbon Basso is ideal for both shorter riders and/or those looking for a lightweight performance bike with a less aggressive bottom bracket to seat ratio. The Carbon Basso frame is built from the same mold as the CA3.0 with a few frame geometry changes, retaining our Carbon Aero performance, rideability and superb finish heritage.

A word about the Bacchetta line of performance recumbents- Bellwether. Merriam-Webster’s definition is as follows: One that takes the lead or initiative. When we introduced our Strada and Giro models at Interbike in 2001, we changed the perception of recumbents. When we introduced the aluminum Corsa in 2005, we shredded the misconception that high performance equals high cost. We weren’t the first to introduce the dual big wheel format, we were the company that made it work! And while our designs have spawned an entire market of Bacchetta wanna-be’s, none of them match the track record of Bacchetta performance recumbents through real-world riding. We go to the races. We have the most renowned recumbent racing team on the planet in Team Bacchetta. While other companies spend a lot of time talking about how fast their bikes are, we’re out there proving it. If you want real-world performance and are ready to walk the walk, you start at the top. You start with Bacchetta, the bellwether of performance recumbents!
