Basso has released the Venta R, a new road bike designed to deliver performance at an accessible price point; it retails for $3,339 in the US (that's around £2,600, though we're still waiting for confirmed UK prices).

The bike’s accessibility also extends to its all-rounder profile. The Italian marque - which is generally associated with high end race bikes - says it has blended aero tube shapes and integrated technology with more forgiving geometry. The result, it believes, is "set to revolutionize the cycling landscape".
