The SCOTT FOIL 10 uses an HMF Carbon Fiber F01 Aero frame that's a perfect blend of light weight, aerodynamics and stiffness. With the frame/fork weighing in at just 980/390g, this bike will help you set a blistering pace 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.
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.
