When SCOTT Sports introduced the Addict road bike in 2007, it was touted as the lightest road bike on the market at a scant 790g. Over time, the Addict name has adorned several worthy bikes that focused on low weight, stiffness, and overall build quality. The 2020 SCOTT Addict 20 Disc endurance road bike takes that same ethos and applies it to an endurance package that sacrifices very little in weight to its racy siblings.
Every SCOTT Addict is based around a lightweight carbon frame; here, it’s the HMF carbon found on most of the Addict RC road bike line, as well as a vast majority of SCOTT carbon bikes. HMF carbon is light, stiff, and designed for durability. What separates the Addict is that while the Addict RC is built with seven different pieces of carbon, the Addict is built with just three. This level of savings means that SCOTT can offer the same carbon for cheaper, with a low weight of under 1000g for a frame. All in, the Addict 20 Disc weighs in at a light 18.5 pounds.
SCOTT designed the Addict frame from the ground up with long-distance comfort in mind. Starting with more upright positioning, the Addict also adds room for up to a 32c tire (28c), design for greater small bump smoothness, and calmed-down handling.
The 2020 SCOTT Addict 20 Disc road bike is based around an HMF carbon frame and fork, a Shimano 105 mechanical R7000 drivetrain, and Syncros RP 2.0 Disc wheels. 700 x 30c Schwalbe ONE tires and Syncros carbon and alloy components complete the build. The Addict Disc is available in seven sizes (XXS/47 – XXL/61 cm).
