Basso Bikes is an Italian manufacturer of road racing bicycles.[1] It was founded in 1977 by Alcide Basso, brother of Marino Basso.[2] Before registering the company, Alcide started making bicycles in his family's garage in 1974.[3]

Basso initially made frames of steel. They acquired the Pogliaghi brand name in the late 1980s.[2] Now they make frames of carbon fiber.[4][5][6] Basso Bikes is a sponsor of Morvelo Basso, a British amateur road racing team.[7]
