"The Power+ EVO is ideal for undulated terrains, where you can best feel its racing nature"

“Good morning Alex,

I wanted to take a few pictures of my new bike before writing to you… But as soon as I came home from my first ride with the Power+, I couldn’t help but sit down at my desk to tell you about my sensations.

FANTASTICA!!! It goes beyond my expectations.

The first thing that struck me is its balance. Putting more weight in front makes the riding more aggressive, but smoother too.

The rear triangle definitely makes the bike stiffer and therefore more reactive.

In my opinion, this bike is ideal for undulated terrains, where you can best feel its racing nature.

Your knowledge in designing the custom frame stood out as soon as I got on the bike.

It might seem trivial, but it’s just like that.

It fits me like a glove! Like my Portofino, everything feels right when you’re sitting on it.

Someone said that you have to deserve other people’s jealousy, and you just did that.

My Battaglin bikes’ finishes are amazing, I praise your skills… I can see the amazement in the eyes of those who see them, staring in admiration of what the Battaglin workshop can do!”

Hi Alex, First of all I am happy to share my experiences with my Power Plus Disc bicycle. It has been a few months since I received it and I wanted to have some “saddle time” with the bike to give my impressions. I have now ridden ~ 750 miles on it. Impressions: I love…

“Alex- My Officina Battaglin Power+ is my fourth steel frame, and first in over 30 years! The first thing that I noticed about the bike when I rode it on the farm roads around the workshop in Marostica was how smooth and quiet it was. I was expecting a jarring and rattling ride when hitting…
