The Carbon Basso is a revamp of Bacchetta's classic Ti Aero Basso. It's designed for shorter riders or for those looking for a high-performance bike with a slightly less aggressive BB to seat ratio. But since it's based on the same mold as the Carbon Aero 3.0. there's no need to question its performance capabilities. It sports an ultra-lightweight Bacchetta Custom Carbon 3.0 frame and an impressive spec including a 27-speed SRAM X0/FSA drivetrain, Vuelta Lite Disc wheelset with puncture-resistant Schwalbe Durano tires, and dependable X-eyed CNC Dual Pivot brakes. While others companies may spend a lot of time talking about how fast their bikes are, Bacchetta's recumbents have proven, real-world performance, so get on, go fast, and have fun!

- Standard frame fits X-Seam measurement of 37 to 46 inches. The Large fits riders with an X-Seam measurement of 41 to 50 inches
- Frame sizes: Standard: 12.5" Boom, Large: 14" Boom
- Wheelbase: Standard: 49", Large: 50"
- Weight limit: 250 pounds

Pick the recumbent size that matches your X-Seam Measurement. To measure your X-Seam, sit flat on the floor with your back against the wall and measure from the wall to the bottom of your feet. Point your toes straight up, so that your feet are perpendicular to the floor. Be sure your back is against the wall and your legs are flat on the floor. If you're close to either end of the X-Seam range, just ask us and we'll help you choose the proper size.

Bacchetta measures seat height from the front edge of the seat to the ground with the seat centered in the middle of its adjustable range. Shorter riders may prefer a lower seat height to make starting and stopping easier.
