Scott model year 2015 road bikes: Solace, Addict, Foil, CR1 – first look

Scott team up with Red Bull Racing, Solace 'endurance' bike gets disc brakes


Foil

Scott’s aero bike, the Foil, is entering its fourth year but Scott say it remains a popular option for team riders and the public so if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

You’ll likely be familiar with the Foil by now -it’s the bike of choice of Orica-GreenEDGE rider Simon Gerrans – but, if not, it uses a series of truncated airfoil tube profiles dubbed ‘F01’ by Scott, said to marry aerodynamics, stiffness and light weight. The 880g claimed weight of the flagship frame is impressively light by aero standards.

The £2,499 Foil 10 is one of three bikes in Scott’s aero range for 2015

Two builds are available based around that frame, with the top-of-the-range Foil Premium Di2 wearing a Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupset and Syncros RR1.0 wheels for a claimed weight of 6.62kg (UK price TBC), while the Foil Team Issue comes in IAM Cycling colours and has a mechanical Shimano Dura-Ace groupset and Syncros RR1.5 wheels for a claimed weight of 6.90kg (UK price TBC).

Meanwhile, the Foil 10 uses a slightly heavier frame – but it still dips below the sub-kilo mark at a claimed 980g – paired with a Shimano Ultegra groupset and Syncros RR2.0 wheels. Yours for £2,499 (claimed weight 7.50kg).
