"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!”

“Just a quick note to thank you (and your team) for all your help with the bike. A great frame is not a ‘product’ it’s a ‘process’ and that’s something the big name brands seem to have forgotten. Well this process has been easy, fun and very rewarding indeed. Thanks for putting up with all…

In seeking out a new road bike frame, my principal requirements were that it be new, Italian-made, of lugged steel Columbus SL tubing and with painted forks but a chromed fork crown. It was a great pleasure to discover—within minutes of starting my internet search—the Marosticana, a frame which not only precisely fit my needs…

“I love the bike. It’s way different, in that it is steel, but it’s super comfy and loves to roll!!!” Photo credits: Morgan Segal Photography www.morgansegal.com Build credits: Zealot Cycleworks https://www.zealotcycleworks.com/

“Alex, Just a quick note to let you know about how my Power+ is coming along. For background, I’m a recent convert to cycling having played rugby and raced motorcycles for the last 20 years. Almost all my riding is between 30-70 miles with 3,000-4,000’ of climbing. I’m not fast, can’t climb or TT, don’t…

“I have tried to choose modern components that function well so that the bike has a classic look but modern performance (Campagnolo Athena 11s., Cinelli stem, Chris King headset with sealed bearings). At last I have had some time to take the Marosticana out for her maiden ride. And a very enjoyable ride it was…

“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…
