2015 Scott Addict SL Racing Road Bike Review | Circle City Bicycles

New 2015 Scott Addict SL - Lighter, Better Performance + Price Drop!

While the full package remains nearly identical to the 2014 model, there are some minor changes, headlined by a Syncros saddle, mid-compact gearing and updated paint.

2015 Scott Addict SL Features:
  • HMX-SL carbon layup for the ultimate in lightweight performance
  • Full SRAM Red 22 kit
  • Ritchey cockpit
  • Syncros RL1.0 carbon clincher wheels
  • Weight: Sub- 1kg frame/fork and 12.96 lbs (54cm complete)
2015 Scott Addict SL Technologies:

Oversized Bottom Bracket

In order to best manage power transfer our engineers 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.

Tapered Headtube

The Addict employs a tapered 1 1/4 - 1 1/8 tapered head tube and co-developed fork, adding structural integrity to the frameset without overdoing it.

HMX SL Carbon Fiber

HMX-SL utilizes Nano-technology, which incorporates a Carbon nanotube reinforced epoxy resin as well as T1000G Carbon Fiber. The Carbon nanotubes offer an improved strength perpendicular and at off-axis to fiber direction, which allows for a better inter-laminar shear strength. The cohesion between the fibers is improved compared to our industry leading HMX Carbon blend offering an unprecedented resistance. T1000G is the world's highest tensile strength fiber. This fiber is traditionally used for aerospace or defense applications. Strategic use of this new material results in a frame that is lightweight without compromise in power transfer.
Race Geometry

The geometry of the Addict and the Foil 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.

F01 Aero Technology

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.
