2017 Scott Foil
The Foil is more than an aero road bike. Impressive comfort values, superb handling and smart integration make this bike the weapon of choice for many. Matt Hayman winning the toughest one-day race in the world, Paris-Roubaix, solidifies the bikes dynamic nature. It was a win that would have been impossible on a road bike that was only aerodynamic.
The new Foil features the same lightweight frame characteristics as its predecessor, and is among the lightest aero bikes on the market. The frame aerodynamics of the bike have been re-worked from the head-tube all the way down to the rear dropouts - stiffness and comfort values have been lifted to a new level.
"I find it hard to really criticise the Foil and exceptionally easy to praise it. It’s blisteringly quick yet performs like a very comfortable, normal road bike. No wonder it took Mat Hayman to victory. Sorry Tom." Cyclist Magazine
COMFORT ZONE CONSTRUCTION: The 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 on the Foil 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.
HANDLING: The Foil’s fork exhibits excellent stiffness values thanks to its tapered 1 ¼ to 1 ½ steerer tube which features an increased diameter compared to the first Foil. However, the Foil features an identical headtube width with an increased bearing size compared to the first edition given that the alloy insert for the bearing that was used on the previous model has been removed and frees space that is used for the larger steerer. Overall, an increase of torsional headtube stiffness
by 13.5% has been achieved.
POWER TRANSFER: The PF86 bottom bracket allows for a wide connection of the downtube and the tapered seattube to the BB box. Together with a stiffness-optimized lay-up and SCOTT’s patented carbon manufacturing process, the Foil’s BB stiffness has increased by 13%.
"My guess is that this will be one of the few times you’ll see the same frame win Paris Roubaix as well as sprint and Mountain stages at the Grand Tours" PEZ Cycling News
