FULLY INTEGRATED CABLE ROUTING
The all new Addict RC has completely integrated cable routing for both mechanical and electronical shifting. This was achieved by our engineers without any compromise on shifting and braking quality, as well as on the stiffness of the head tube. Furthermore, it is surprisingly easy for mechanics to change cables and maintain the bike.
The complete frame set is built hollow and has a been machined clean inside to maximize the weight reduction.
AERO TUBE SHAPES
SCOTT’s patented airfoil design got applied to its main tubes (down tube, head tube, seat tube, seat post, seat stays) with the goal to optimizing the airflow and reduce the overall drag.
The Addict RC dropouts are designed to be integrated on the thru-axle system thanks to a hollow tube design that allows a simple and lightweight structure.
COMBO CRESTON IC
Clean and uncluttered, our new Syncros combo cockpit allows us to route all the cables completely internally through the bar, headset and into the frame as part of SCOTT’s new ICC routing. Working with internationally renowned partner GebioMized, we’ve created the ultimate ergonomic shape for riders.
Our new ultra-lightweight seat clamp weight just 12 gram and allows for a very carbon friendly clamp mechanism. This allowed us to save even more weight on the seat post (weight seat post:142gram).
You may find plenty of talk regarding different geometry of road bikes with some suited to racing and others suited to endurance or sportive.
In general there is one key difference and that is that the race bike will have a lower front end give more aerodynamic position where as the endurance bike will be higher offering a more comfortable position on the bike.
Many manufactures have now taken their designs even further by producing frames not only based geometry to suits the different styles but also changing the make up of the frames to suit. For example the Scott Addict is a road race bike. This has a race geometry but also the frame is designed to be stiffer, lighter and extremely responsive. On the other side you have the Scott Solace which has an endurance geometry. This has also been designed to be light and responsive but it’s also been designed so areas of the frame flex offering more comfort to the rider over long distances.
The key when deciding which bike to choose is to first think about what you want from the bike. If comfort is paramount then choose an endurance bike. If speed is top of the list then choose a race bike.
