The SCOTT FOIL Team Issue is the Aero Road bike of Teams ORICA GreenEDGE and IAM Cycling. It's HMX NET Carbon Fiber frame/fork weighs in at 880/340g and is a supreme speed machine. Racing at the highest level on the World Tour, the teams choose the FOIL because it was developed to be faster and more efficient in all ROAD conditions.
The geometry of the Addict is Competition Road, validated by out ORICA GreenEDGE and IAM Cycling teams and enjoyed by the most discerning customers. The handling and fit you’ve come to expect from SCOTT will be familiarly aggressive.
The revolutionary Di2 electronic shifting option with SEIS (Shimano Electronic Intelligent System) takes the already superior Shimano shifting performance to a whole new level. The increased accuracy, smoothness and reliability of electronic shifting makes gear changes faster and virtually eliminates missed shifts.
While we already use the proven HMF composite fiber on all our composite high-end bike models, we have improved upon conventional HMF material. This new fiber, which is produced exclusively for SCOTT, offers 20% more stiffness and is employed on all the areas that need additional rigidity. This new material also allows us to reduce weight and improve riding characteristics. NET stands for Naked External Tubeset, where the frame sheds its exterior cosmetic layer, which saves even more weight.
Our engineers have developed IMP™, the newest technology applied to carbon production. Our proprietary process allows for lighter construction by removing 11% of the material from the headtube intersection while increasing strength by utilizing high modulus stressed fibers for more precise fiber placement in critical areas. To compliment the IMP™ process, our frames benefit from our Naked External Tubeset™, which eliminates the cosmetic carbon layer to shave precious grams. Both HMX and HMF fibers are used in our carbon frames ensuring the utmost durability, security, and longevity for the frame.
The downtube flares at the oversized bottom bracket junction, achieving several design goals. This construction adds lateral stiffness without increasing wall thickness, and the new bottom bracket mold disperses loads to effectively halve the stress on this crucial junction. The shape of the downtube and bottom bracket carries seamlessly into the chain stays, further reducing turbulence and creating an additional aerodynamic benefit. Also, the drive-side outer diameter of the bottom bracket conveniently accommodates an SRM or power meter.

Every tube in the frame is oriented in relation to
the leading edges of the down tube and head
tube, as these are the first points of contact for
any wind influence. The rear stays are oriented 4
degrees from the seat tube plane to route air from
the front triangle around the rear triangle cleanly,
and are constructed with a carbon layup that
additionally results in vertical compliance.
F01 Technology is based on the theory that a partial airfoil shape without the trailing edge can produce the same aerodynamic advantage as a traditional foil shape. Modern foil shapes are largely based on models and ratios created for airplanes by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), but because bicycles attain speeds far less than those of airplanes, these ratios do not necessarily apply to bikes. SCOTT Aero Science engineers have thus developed F01 Technology to create unique, bicycle specific tube shapes which maximize aerodynamic efficiency at lower air speeds.
