Officina Battaglin’s roots run deep into the history of bike racing
ENJOY THE UNIQUE FEEL OF A CUSTOM BIKE WITH A TRUE RACING PEDIGREE
The Officina Battaglin brand was founded by Giovanni Battaglin, the Italian ex-rider who achieved the Giro d’Italia-Vuelta a Espana double in 1981.
Right after his most successful season as a pro, Giovanni started his own bike workshop. As a bicycle maker, he built custom steel bikes for some of the greatest champions of the 80s and the 90s.
With almost 3 decades spent helping pro riders feel good in the saddle, Giovanni Battaglin is the mind behind the design of the Officina Battaglin products.
That’s why an Officina Battaglin custom build will bring you a lifetime of true racing expertise that made the history of cycling.
