"The Power+ is fast, stable, comfortable"

“Hi Alex,

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.”

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…

“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…

“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 want to thank you for such a wonderful bike. I have ridden aluminum, titanium and carbon over the past 30 years and the Power+ stands out for its balanced ride quality, handling and comfort.”
