Discover Officina Battaglin, a collection of road steel frames made in Italy for you by a Grand-Tour winner.
WE HAND – BUILD STEEL FRAMES
SO YOU FEEL GOOD ON THE BIKE
OFFICINA BATTAGLIN IS A COLLECTION OF STEEL ROAD FRAMES HANDMADE IN ITALY
In the era of bicycle production being obsessed with weight reduction and stiffness, we believe there’s still a place for steel.
If you’re after a frame that will make your ride smooth and quiet, you’ll put steel on top of your list because of its incredible road feel.
That’s why the whole Officina Battaglin collection is hand-built in our workshop from Columbus tubing and with an emphasis on comfort.

CREATED BY A CYCLING ICON
The Officina Battaglin brand was founded in 2014 by Giovanni Battaglin , the Italian ex-rider who achieved the Giro-Vuelta double in 1981. After a 20-year break, he’s now back to brazing steel frames, just like he used to do before aluminum and carbon became the de facto standard for bicycle production. Using the original process and craftsmen , Giovanni Battaglin is reviving his legacy , being the only Italian steel maker to have significant experience riding steel in the pro peloton.
