"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!”

“I started my wonderful journey with Alex and the other people from Officina Battaglin last year. After submitting my email, Alex arranged an interview and outlined the models and the options.
