Based entirely on the all-new Addict CX cyclocross bike just released this past April, the new Addict Gravel makes only a few changes to become their dirt road racing bike.
Built with their 2nd tier HMF carbon (just below their top level HMX fibers used on the CX bike), it essentially shares the same frame with a new paint scheme and gravel optimized tires. Key features are the same, including flat mount disc brakes, big tire clearance and adaptable cable ports to handle any drivetrain and braking scenario you can imagine.
Check out details, spec and actual weights below…
Everything runs internally to keep it clean, literally and visually.
The bike comes spec’d with 700x35c tires, but from the looks of it you could squeeze at least a 38 in there…or just a knobbier 35 if things got sloppy. Scott’s rep didn’t have firm details on what if any changes this fork has compared to the ‘cross fork, but it is listed as an “HMF Carbon Gravel Fork” on the spec sheet. We’ve inquired and will update as needed, but it appears very similar to the ‘cross one.
Tire clearance is about the same out back.
Pressfit BB86 houses a Shimano Ultegra crankset, with the rest of the group used across the frame.
The chain catcher keeps it from dropping off the inside during aggressive shifts, and the UCI approval sticker pretty much says it’s the Addict CX frame, just with a different carbon layup. We’re thinking this one will also see alloy models follow in the months ahead.
It’s designed around the flat mount disc brake standard, but this is what it looks like when those parts aren’t available.
Full spec for the bike includes: Shimano Ultegra group w/ 50-34 chainrings, Syncros RR2.0 Anatomic 31.8mm Handle Bar, Syncros FL2.0 Stem, Syncros Carbon FL1.0 ECL 27.2mm Seat Post, Syncros FL2.0 Saddle, Syncros RP2.0 Disc Wheelset, Schwalbe G-One tubeless ready 700x35C tires.
Actual weight is 8.36kg (18.43lb, probably with tubes).
Schwalbe unleashed a complete collection of new road tubeless tires under their “One” series, showing their commitment to the genre and we couldn’t be happier about it. The spec on this bike may have forced them to announce the tires a teensy bit before they wanted, but, well…here’s pics!
