Scuderia AlphaTauri is pleased to announce that Basso Bikes is joining the team as its Official Bike Supplier.
Led by Alcide Basso, the company has been making bikes in Vicenza, Italy since 1977 and is still very much a family run business. Racing is in the blood, with one of three brothers, Marino Basso, having won stage races at the major cycling Grand Tours, as well as being the 1972 Road Race World Champion.
Ride, Perfected is the motto that identifies the mission of Basso Bikes: creating the best riding experience for passionate cyclists. A philosophy that produces bikes that have much in common with our cars: their carbon fibre components made in-house, with light weight and aerodynamics as the key drivers of performance, just like on a Formula 1 car. Basso, nowadays, offers a wide range of bikes: not only road racing but also gravel and e-bikes.
Basso will supply our drivers, Yuki Tsunoda and Nyck de Vries, with racing bikes for them to use as part of their fitness training program, while team personnel will be provided with road and gravel e-bikes, at the European races on the calendar. The bikes boast an eye-catching livery that takes its cues from the look of the AT04.
