Originally introduced in 2008, the Addict was the lightest bike on the market thanks to superior technology to their peers. New to 2018 are revised Scott Addict and Addict Disc models. These new models are endurance-oriented and a replacement for the Scott Solace and CR1 road bikes. They use a three-piece carbon mold to keep the frame simple and remarkably light like the rest of the Addict range. As a result, weight has been cut dramatically, without sacrificing comfort or road handling ability. Models like the Scott Addict 10 Disc feature endurance geometry that puts the rider in a more upright position, perfect for riding for hours chewing up mile after mile. Finally, disc models fit up to a 32c tire (28c for rim brakes) for superior comfort and grip.
The Scott Addict RC and Addict RC Disc favors the race-ready side of the spectrum as one of the lightest road frames on the market. While it comes in both disc and rim brake models, the models like the Scott Addict RC Pro is extremely light and agile, perfect for long, steep climbs. With it’s well-proven race geometry which favors greater reach and lower stack than the standard Addict, riders can achieve ideal positioning for optimal power transfer and rider agility.
New for 2018 is the Scott Foil Disc, which takes the award-winning Scott Foil aero platform and adapts it to disc brake use. While the main triangle is the same, the fork and rear triangle are completely redesigned to shave watts and gain speed. The fork has been completely redesigned to manage increased wind resistance that comes with disc brake rotors and calipers. The result is a frameset that is just as stiff and aerodynamic as the rim brake model, while being just 40g heavier. As a result, the Scott Foil 10 Disc is lighter than the competition, and furthers the Scott’s reputation for performance.
While most dirt-road adventures require choosing between a traditional road bike and a cross bike, the Scott Addict Gravel and Speedster Gravel create an ideal blend of on-road handling with compliance, tire clearance and stability for loose terrain and rough pavement. All Addict Gravel models feature hydraulic disc brakes and thru-axles, for confident handling and braking. The Scott Addict Gravel 20 Disc is an excellent example of balance between low weight, confident handling, and quality components.
Finally, with the emergence of bikes as transportation, Scott continues its urban bike line, which includes a series of Bosch-powered E-Bikes. Scott’s E-Bikes feature proven Bosch drive systems, 400 WH batteries, and up to 100 mile range, all with built-in fenders, racks, and lights, to make urban riding a breeze.
