The SCOTT FOIL 20 has been designed to be even more aerodynamic, more comfortable, and to still have that incredibly laterally stiff nature of its predecessor. Featuring an HMF Carbon Fiber frame, and integrated Syncros components, the SCOTT FOIL 20 is a race ready machine at a fraction of the cost.
- HMF carbon frame & fork
- Shimano Ultegra 2x11-speed drivetrain
- Syncros RR2.0 wheelset
- components made of carbon & aluminum
Technologies & Innovations of the Scott Foil Disc
HMF Carbon Fiber
HMF carbon is used to maximize strength and to keep the weight low. This material has an optimal blend of stiffness and strength that offers the best riding pleasure. The know-how of SCOTT engineers is utilized in order to create the perfect lay-up with orientation and fiber size. HMF will offer superior strength compared to the industry standard.
While the first Foil has been praised for its direct power transfer, responsive handling, low weight and aerodynamic excellence, some riders yearned for more comfort. So Scott increased vertical compliance, making comfort a key point in the requirements specification of the new Foil. The new Foil features a low seatstay attachment which in combination with a modified and noticeably thin seatstay shape leads to a smooth riding experience even on rough roads. The focused approach to improve comfort resulted in an increase in vertical compliance by 86% of the seattube area compared to its predecessor. Additionally, the fork compliance has been increased by 11% compared to the first edition of the Foil.
Oversized Bottom Bracket
In order to best manage power transfer Scott developed a down tube and bottom bracket intersection that is the widest of any road bike currently on the market. The wide cross section and smooth transitions better manage loads and yield a laterally robust structure which increases pedaling efficiency by effectively delivering power to the drivetrain rather than losing it to unwanted frame flex.
