With all of the same aero tricks, technology, and geometry of its higher-cost sibling, the 2019 SCOTT Foil 10 Disc aero road bike performs like a superbike at a fraction of a cost.
The heart of every bike is the frame; here, it’s an HMF-grade carbon frame tuned for aerodynamics that weighs just 120g heavier than the top-grade frame. In early aero testing, SCOTT found that disc brakes on the rim-brake Foil made the bike slower by three watts, so the brand worked to make the Foil Disc just as fast as the rim brake model. Aero thru axles, an asymmetric fork and chainstays (for improved aero and stiffness), and the move to a one-piece molded frame design (for less material overlap and a lighter frame) made possible only due to thru axles highlight the main differences to an otherwise-fast frame. All said and done the disc frame weighs just 40g more than a rim brake model while being able to fit up to a 30c tire with ease, and is slightly faster than the rim brake model.
Besides that, SCOTT worked hard to maintain everything else that distinguishes the Foil from the competition. At 985g for a frame (size M), the Foil Disc is one of the lightest aero frames on the market. SCOTT also worked hard to ensure the Foil performs much more like a regular race road bike than also claims 89% better ride compliance than the previous Foil, making it nearly as smooth-riding as the Addict and among the least-jittery aero road bikes on the market. Smooth is fast, and fast is smooth with the Foil.
Despite the call for improved ride quality instead of surgical competence that other aero bikes offer, the Foil offers a 6 watt power saving (or 27.2 seconds over 40km at 45km/h) over a comparable road bike.
To that lead, the 2019 SCOTT Foil 10 Disc is built to be one of the most versatile aero road bikes on the market. The HMF carbon frame and fork are home to a Shimano Ultegra Di2 drivetrain and a Syncros Meritt 1.0 50 mm carbon clincher wheelset. A Syncros Creston 1.5 aero bar and integrated stem combine aerodynamics, adjustability, and surprisingly low weight. Schwalbe ONE V-Guard 28c tires and a Syncros Belcarra 2.0 saddle finish the kit. The Foil 10 Disc is available in seven sizes (XXS-XXL).
