"The Portofino G is fast-rolling for road riding and comfortable for gravel riding"

“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 6 hrs rides, and it was just fun. The build choice with 35mm tires and the Cadex wheels works perfectly fine with the bike.

The comfort of the bike is remarkable. Although it is hard to say how much of the comfort is coming from the steel frame, the difference to my carbon bikes is obvious.

The Portofino G is my preferred bike, and I am planning some long-distance rides through the Alps next year.

I look forward to a lot of great experiences with my Portofino G.”

It immediately struck me as a piece of cycling art, a gorgeous…

“After the first rides on my Power+ Disc, here are my first impressions. The bike is super silent and super smooth. It doesn’t feel as fast as my carbon racer, but when I look at the averages, it comes pretty close. The biggest difference is the stability though. I think part of it comes from…
