Here's what our fellow cyclists said about riding the Officina Battaglin custom steel bikesBack to the testimonials
"The Power+ is fast, stable, comfortable"
Hope you’re doing well. Herewith my first impression (testimonial) on the Power+. This is not yet a video testimonial. Working on that one as well.
After several rides in my neighbourhood, yesterday I had (what I call) the maiden ride on the Power+ in a hilly part of the Netherlands (only 100 meters above sea level with the longest climb just over 1 km and a steepest gradient of 10%).
Besides a flat tire, the bike handles brilliantly.
It is fast, stable, comfortable and the combination of the components and the frame makes a brilliant bike.
The bike is fitted with a Sram Red eTap groupset. A modern steel frame deserves state of the art components I think.
Carbon rims, steerer, stem and seat post bring down the weight under 8 kilos. This is exactly what I was looking for in a bike.
Thanks to the bike fit and the work done by you and your father the frame is a perfect fit for me.
Although I’m not in perfect form, my rides were instantly faster on the Battaglin compared to my other bike.
Looking forward visiting the Officina in Italy.
Thanks for all the support and conversations we had in preparation of the actual production of this very special bike to me.”

“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…
"I rode my Portofino in the the world’s toughest amateur race: it’s the most comfortable bike I’ve ever ridden"
I’m visiting the Battaglin workshop after racing the Haute Route. The Haute Route is a 7-day event famous for being the toughest and the highest amateur race. This time we were 450 riders, and it was just amazing. One of the toughest that we’ve ever done. It was 800 kilometers and almost 22000 meters of climbing..…
“The performance of vibration absorption worked well, and it was very comfortable to ride on the Marosticana. I felt very good steering performance when cornering. I could easily draw a beautiful round-shape on the corner with this bike.”
