Lightweight, comfortable, modern-looking, now with added braking power and modulation.
The Power+ Disc has everything you're looking for when you choose to ride a handmade modern steel bike.
It's the disc version of the Officina Battaglin Power+, a frame that has created happy cyclists all over the world, with a new blue paint job that sets it apart from its predecessor.
The Power+ Disc is designed to blend the traditional Italian craftsmanship with the latest technology, providing a smooth ride and great stopping power in any road condition.
The Power+ Disc is built from the latest Columbus Spirit HSS triple butted tubeset. Steel may have abdicated as the material of choice for the majority of cyclists, but Columbus has never stopped being the first contributor to innovation in its field. Featuring oversized tube profiles, the Spirit HSS are the first step towards a lightweight steel frame with racy aesthetics.
The Power+ Disc is built using fillet-brazed construction.
Fillet-brazing is art. It’s the most sophisticated way to build a steel bicycle frame. After carefully mitering the ends of the tubes on a precision machine to make sure the fit is perfect, the frame builder melts a filler metal in the gap between the two pieces at a temperature below steel’s melting point. Getting sculpted joints as those you can see in photos requires a lot of hard work and years of practice.
Carbon monocoque fork:
To save grams on the frameset without compromising stiffness, the Power+ Disc features a carbon monocoque fork. The fork is one of the most important parts of the bike for control, so it’s crucial to ensure strength and lateral rigidity.
Front and rear thru-axle:
To avoid power loss, eliminate disc-brake vibrations and improve the bike's handling, the Power+ Disc features 142x12 mm thru-axles front and rear.
With disc brakes and more tire clearance, the rear triangle needs to be longer. The rear thru-axle increase stiffness to the rear ends, making the bike prompter in sudden accelerations.
