Here's what our fellow cyclists said about riding the Officina Battaglin custom steel bikesBack to the testimonials
"“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 first heard of Giovanni Battaglin in the early ’80s when I got into bicycle racing. Being from Italian descent, I have always been a fan of the Italian cycling greats. Having owned Bianchi and Pinarello bikes, I always longed for a Battaglin, especially knowing the company’s pedigree and the success they achieved during the…
