"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.

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!”

But do other people do?  It’s the Officina Battaglin Portofino.  I…

“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…

“Still my fave bike. Comfortable, compliant and fast when she needs to be.” “Just can’t get enough of her steel lugs and how comfortable she is on climbs and descents. Looking forward to more races with her in 2024.”
