"I ride the Portofino for hours almost every day: it’s amazing, very comfortable and responsive"

“The Portofino is amazing, very comfortable and responsive. I ride it for hours, almost everyday.

Owning it makes me really proud. My kids’ names engraved on the bike make it really personal for me… And the pink cromovelato color with-all black Italian components is a great combination.

I love to start my day with an early morning ride, when there’s no one on the road, only me and my Portofino.

I just listen to the sound of my freewheel while the Sun rises, and then I go on riding for hours. A high quality ride makes my day!”

“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…
