"Battaglin bikes are head turners: my Power+ EVO makes me feel special!"

“My first encounter with Officina Battaglin was a post by BabaVelo. 

Battaglin gave me an experience of a lifetime where I could tailor-make the bike in terms of size and colour

I made the experience more memorable by actually visiting their facility in Marostica, where I was welcomed by the entire Battaglin Family.

I have used alloy, titanium, and carbon bikes in the past but wanted something real, giving the character of all three in one. Battaglin was my obvious choice. 

Based on Alex’s suggestion, I went for the Power+ Evo in red cromovelato. I like the Power+ Evo as it gives me all the benefits of an aero carbon bike with the comfort of a titanium bike, something I wanted badly. 

Not to forget, like supercars, Battaglin bikes are head turners and will be noticed by anyone on the road because of their metallic finish. 

The bike makes me feel special!!!!

It is the ONE bike to have, so I suggest you grab yours right now.”

“Coming from 10+ years and 100,000 KM on a very nice carbon bike, my expectation was a slightly more comfortable ride but minor sacrifice of speed. I discovered that the Portofino R rides better in every possible way. Definitely more comfortable, but also gets up to speed on flats surprisingly quickly, and when the slope…

“Dear Alex, I just want to thank you from my heart for the Power Plus frameset you recently built for me. It has exceeded my highest expectations!

“Alex, Just a quick note to let you know about how my Power+ is coming along. For background, I’m a recent convert to cycling having played rugby and raced motorcycles for the last 20 years. Almost all my riding is between 30-70 miles with 3,000-4,000’ of climbing. I’m not fast, can’t climb or TT, don’t…

“I want to thank you for a wonderful bike. My Portofino G just rides awesome. It is fast-rolling and agile for road riding and comfortable and stable for gravel riding. A real do-it-all bike and a perfect match for the terrain around my hometown with tarmac and gravel mountain roads. I did some 2 to…
