"My Portofino is the smoothest and most beautiful bike I have ever ridden! I even managed to better my FTP"

Photoshoot day for Red Lantern – My new Battaglin Portofino, which I bought for my 44th birthday.

I built this completely Italian: frame, groupset, components, wheelset, tyres, even the inner tubes (Pirellis)! The only thing not from Italy? The saddle 😀

My Portofino is the smoothest and the most beautiful bike I have ever ridden! I didn’t have to wait long for it too, and everything was communicated well with weekly updates and photos of the build.

Alex was kind to have calls to sort me out if I had more things to add or change. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

The bike rides like a magic carpet. It’s smooth, and I hardly feel any bumps on the road.

I did a speed test and managed to better my personal FTP, no joke!

Anyway, keeping with the rest of the race bikes on Sunday was a bliss, and at times, I was ahead pulling the pack 😂

“WOW, what a bike!  That was my first thought when I saw the Power+ EVO on the GCN Tech Show.  Officina Battaglin had just launched this new bike. I just couldn’t get the picture out of my head and wanted to know more.  I reached out to the company and got introduced to the Battaglin…

“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……

“The performance of vibration absorption worked well, and it was very comfortable to ride on the Marosticana. I felt very good steering performance when cornering. I could easily draw a beautiful round-shape on the corner with this bike.”

I have had an appreciation for Italian made bikes, ever since I bought my first one in 1989. So when I saw the release of the Collezione Speciale I immediately expressed my interest.
