Back at Eurobike this summer we got an early peek at Scott’s 2019 road range. With more high-end women’s bikes, more Premium builds, and a classy look Scott goes light on the logos in earth tones and a healthy dose of tan wall tires & matching saddles. Check out Contessa and Gravel versions of the core Addict, plus the latest Foil Disc.
2019 Scott Premium, classy all-around lightweight road bikes
Classy is the look Scott are aiming for with a major revamp of their high-end road bikes for the new year. Scott says that dropping those high contrast paint jobs covered with logos they are trying to let their top-end HMX carbon bikes stand for themselves. They recognize that a lot about buying a premium road bike is a luxury lifestyle thing, and they are fine with that.
Deep, metallic paint in understated earth tones can let the performance of their bikes make all the statement you need. And of course more skinwall/tanwall tires and matching natural leather saddles give a classic look to the otherwise modern performance road bike lineup, while satisfying the current aesthetic trends.
2019 Scott Addict RC Premium Disc lightweight performance road bike
The Addict is Scott’s benchmark road bike and the first to get the full Premium classic aesthetic treatment.
At 9500€ the Addict RC Premium Disc comes with a hefty pricetag too, but a suitably premium superlight HMX carbon frame & fork, complete Dura-Ace Di2 groupset, and a host of Syncros Carbon components.
More classically-styled tan-wall builds are also available in the more affordable 4400€ Addict RC 15 Disc that steps down to the HMF carbon frameset but still an Ultegra Di2 build.
Then there are the more affordable, comfort-focused non-RC Addicts like the 3800€ Addict SE Disc and the 2000€ Addict 20 Disc that share the aesthetics in HMF carbon framesets with endurance geometry.
If you want more traditional bright colors & high contrast logos, Scott still offers plenty of that too in 2019 for all of the rim brake Addicts, plus three versions of the Addict RC Disc
2019 Scott Contessa Addict RC Disc
The Contessa Addict RC Disc is new for 2019, bringing top-tier performance to women with the lightweight HMF carbon frameset in a small range of sizes with women-specific saddles, component sizing, and the proper road race geometry.
It’s still not the absolute top-level carbon layup which is reserved only for the Addict Premium RC Disc & Addict RC Pro Disc in the men’s builds. But those bikes still share the same geometry and sizing down to an XXS 47cm frame, making them an option for women who also want to spend almost ten grand on a road bike.
The 4400€ Contessa Addict RC Disc is still really light in HMF carbon (with a claimed 790g frame), and it gets a solid race-ready build of Ultegra Di2 and Syncros components.
Beyond the top-level RC bikes, there are also Contessa versions of the hi-mod HMF carbon Addict without the IMP carbon tech that offer solid builds in more relaxed endurance geometry and pricing at 2000€ in the new tan wall look, or as low as 1400€ with a more standard finish & budget build.
2019 Scott Addict Gravel 10 Disc
The Addict Gravel gets more of a simple two-tone look for its three different mixed-surface builds.
The top Addict Gravel 10 Disc at 5800€ features a superlight HMX carbon frameset, a SRAM Force 1 group, and Syncros finishing kit with carbon wheels.
A couple more affordable builds with the HMF carbon frameset and Shimano compact road double drivetrains bring Scott gravel pricing a bit down to 3000€ for the most affordable Addict Gravel 30 Disc, all with variations on the classy look.
2019 Scott Foil Premium Disc
Lastly, the aero road Foil joins to aesthetic overhaul for 2019, also chalking up the most expensive option for Scott’s new luxury Premium bike build label. Already a pro stage race and Spring Classics winning bike, the aerodynamic disc brake Foil is pretty versatile, so at least you get a lot of bang for your buck.
The 2019 Scott Foil Premium Disc gets a hefty 12,000€ pricetag, though. With that comes the top-end HMF carbon aero frame kit, integrated carbon Syncros cockpit, Zipp 303 NSW Disc tubeless clinchers, and a full Dura-Ace Di2 groupset.
More affordable Foils with the HMF carbon frame are available at 5300€ for the Foil 10 Disc, and 3400€ for the Foil 20 Disc with Ultegra Di2 or mechanical builds.
Again at 7000€, the HMX carbon Foil RC Disc sticks with a more conventional Euro pro look, as does a yellow/black option for the HMF carbon Foil 20 Disc.
But the Foil is also the only rim brake bike in 2019 to get the classic styling option as well. The rim brake Scott Foil 10 also delivers subdued graphics with its 4400€ price tag. That might please those roadies looking for an aero advantage, who still think classic looks means disc brakes are out of the question.
2019 Scott Premium road bike lineup – Availability
Scott’s full 2019 road bike range has now rolled out to their global shop network. We’ve gotten mixed feedback from a couple of sources as to which models are available everywhere (like whether the Contessa Addict RC will be coming to America) so check with you local Scott dealer for final availability.
