2014 Scott Addict SL

Boasting a frameset that weighs less than 1 kilo (that’s frame and fork), the Addict is back and lighter than ever. By tweaking the HMX Net carbon, the company was able to eek out 39% more comfort from the new frame while increasing BB stiffness by 6%. Aerodynamics weren’t ignored either, with the new frame claiming 25% less wind resistance at 45 KPH.

See the bike in action after the break.

I guess they liked the Garmin video so much they wanted to make their own.

I wonder what laboratory equipment and resulting math is used to evaluate “39% more comfort” on this frame. Maybe they used the Butt-O-Meter

Ha, Velorider said Butt-O-Meter. Because Scott would not want to infringe on Specialized Ass-O-Meter. Don’t believe me, here is a Specialized Fit expert explaining it!

The sun set at the end…I guess they’re going to descend at night. Hope they brought lights!

And I always thought an Ass-O-Meter was something the guys used at the beach as a rating system. Well…..spank my bottom, Specialized has a patent on this too!!!

The downtube looks to have a truncated airfoil profile similar to the Foil. It’s good to see aerodynamics getting some attention even on the lightest recent bikes (Cervelo, Scott).

2.2 pounds for the frame and fork? -that is astounding.

Time for all the haters to ante up. That’s some top notch engineering to reach this weight.

tip ‘o the hat I say.

Ass-O-Meter…why are they rating donkeys?

Seriously hot bike though. Is that what Gerrans rode to victory on stage 3 of the TdF?

Sorry to be a grammar nazi, but “lightweight” is an adjective (in the context they’re using it)!
