For nearly 30 years the Astra model has been hand-made in the Basso factory in northeastern Italy.
The all-new 2020 Astra pushes the limits farther than any version before it and does so with a good dose of style.
Astra incorporates the tried, tested and racer approved Basso geometry and mates it with a sophisticated tube structure that adds efficiency thanks to both form and function.
Constructed from 100% 3k Torayca High Modulous Carbon Fiber from a blend of T700 and MR60 fibers, the Astra is capable of offering performance on par with its higher tier siblings with the only compromise coming in the form of a few extra grams.
100% 3K Torayca High Modulus Carbon Fiber in T700-MR60
Top Tube: 1 x 0° + 1 x 22° + 2 x 45° = the lightest part of the frame.
Down tube: 2 x 0° + 1 x 22° + 2 x 45° fiber lay-up light and stiff.
HT: 2 x 0° + 4 x 45° the most rigid part of the bike, zero giving in torque.
ST: 1 x 0° + 3 x 22° comfortable and vertical shock absorption.
CS and ST: 1 x 0°, 3 x 22° + 1 x 45° light and stiff.
3K inside tube lay-up of ht – bb and st increases torque resistence.
