"I will be the peloton’s highlight for at least 6 months because of this beauty!"

“Dear Alex & Dario,

I have received the Power+ EVO safe and sound, and I’ve just finished assembling it. 

I put on the Ultra WTO 45 with GP5000 continental 25-mm tires, bike computer mount, carbon bottle cage, and Xpedo pedals.

Surprisingly it weighs 8.13kg… Which is not bad at all for a steel bike. Wow… It’s even lighter than my Titanium Moots RSL, with approximately the same specs.

I found this bike to be very quiet. Smooth and comfy. Regardless of the wheelset, the frame reduces and absorbs vibrations quite nicely.

Well done, Alex and Dario.

I believe that by just changing the crank, it would be easy to go below 8kg – 7.8kg is feasible without any major effort.

It’s great to have this Power+ EVO. I will be the peloton’s highlight for at least 6 months because of its beauty!

“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…

“I was always keen on a bespoke steel bike. Then on the Internet, I saw the Power+ EVO. The cromovelato finish, a very modern look with the concealed cables and the dropped seat stays… I thought it was a modern take on a classic steel bike. So, I started the project in June 2020, but…

Dear Alex, First, I would like to thank the whole Battaglin team & family for building this dream bike for me. I’d like to thank your father Giovanni for designing the bike. It’s such an honor to own it. And of course, I’d like to thank you. You were very patient with my impatience. Even amid…
