"“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’ve owned the Officina Battaglin Bassanese for over a year, it’s become my main bike for weekend group rides with friends. I didn’t originally purchase the Bassanese as a replacement for my custom titanium bike, but I just loved riding the Battaglin so much my other bike has been relegated to the status of second…

In seeking out a new road bike frame, my principal requirements were that it be new, Italian-made, of lugged steel Columbus SL tubing and with painted forks but a chromed fork crown. It was a great pleasure to discover—within minutes of starting my internet search—the Marosticana, a frame which not only precisely fit my needs…

Dear Alex, Ciao. Grazie mille. Please, on my behalf, thank your dad for designing such a tremendous frame for me. And thank the team for building such a unique color scheme for me. It is so beautiful. Bellissimo! I was originally skeptical about switching to a steel bike that is 1kg heavier than my Colnago…

“I love the bike. It’s way different, in that it is steel, but it’s super comfy and loves to roll!!!” Photo credits: Morgan Segal Photography www.morgansegal.com Build credits: Zealot Cycleworks https://www.zealotcycleworks.com/
