Battaglin Teases 650-gram Road Frame for 2013 Race Season
Now, they’re teasing us with the upcoming Battaglin Supreme road bike, a full carbon frame that should tip the scales at a wispy 650 grams in size medium. Details are sparse, and photos are nonexistent at the moment (that’s a ghosted pic of their C13 above), but we do know it’s an entirely new frame and will come spec’d with either Campagnolo Super Record or Shimano Dura-Ace and Mavic R-SYS SLR wheels and an FSA carbon cockpit. It’ll also include an Italian-made BPeople carbon saddle.
The brand was started by former Giro and Vuelta winner Giovanni Battaglin. Customers can choose to visit their factory, stay in their hotel and ride with them when they buy a bike.
