Palladio

Your custom-finished Italian steel road bike, ready in 4 weeks

WANT TO KNOW MORE?

When you behold the landscapes of the Vicenza area, you’re not just seeing nature—you’re walking through the timeless works of Andrea Palladio, one of Italy’s legendary architects. Born in this region, Palladio’s designs have inspired generations, defining neoclassical architecture with their elegance and enduring beauty.
In a similar spirit, the Officina Battaglin Palladio frame embodies the soul of Italian craftsmanship. It is a tribute to classic forms, redesigned for today’s performance standards. Every detail is a nod to the past, yet engineered for the present.
The Palladio, like its namesake, is about harmony between form and function. It’s built using lugged construction, a method that our Italian framebuilders have refined over decades. This technique, while traditional, is executed with modern oversized lugs and tubing, enhancing both the bike’s aesthetic appeal and ride quality.
These lugs do more than just connect; they smooth out vibrations, making long rides less tiring. They expand the joint area, distributing stress and making the bike sturdier and more reliable.
It promises not only a smooth ride but a stunning one, with each component reflecting the care and passion of its makers.
Palladio’s villas stand robust and graceful centuries later. Our Palladio bike aims to offer the same timeless reliability. It’s built for those who appreciate the classics but are not bound by them.
From the echoing halls of Palladian villas to the winding roads of your next ride, the Palladio is a bridge between eras. It’s your chance to own a piece of Italian artistry, crafted not far from where Palladio himself centuries ago designed his masterpieces.

The Palladio stands out for its oversized lugs—the innovation that transformed lugged construction when first introduced with the Officina Battaglin Portofino in 2017.
