If you’re looking for a lightweight bike that can hop from the road onto less taken paths, look no further than the Addict Gravel. We have embraced our light weight obsession to create a state of the art, gravel grinding adventure machine. Combine both excellent stiffness and comfort values, high-end componentry and looks to boot and you’ve got yourself a sidekick for anything the day throws at you.
The Addict Gravel uses an HMX carbon fiber blend that has inherently excellent stiffness-to-weight characteristics. The front triangle is manufactured using SCOTT’s IMP Technology which results in incredibly lightweight construction.
The Addict Gravel’s seat stays are directly connected with the toptube. Additionally, the toptube becomes more oval towards the connection with the seattube. On top of this the Addict Gravel uses a 27.2mm seat post which features enhanced comfort characteristics compared to a 31.6mm seat post. The comb
The Addict Gravel features 1 1/8” to 1 1/2” integrated bearings and a tapered headtube. The headtube diameter allows for wider connections of the toptube and downtube which results in an increase of torsional stiffness by 32%. The rigid front end enables direct, precise and safe handling of the bike, even in the most technical of turns.
PF86 BOTTOM BRACKET
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 BB stiffness is increased.
Exploring gravel roads can lead to some muddy riding from time to time. Tire clearance can therefore be a decisive factor in a day staying great or turning horribly wrong. The fork and frame are built so that even in the muddiest of conditions the wheels turn unrestricted.
REMOVABLE DERAILLEUR HANGER/CHAIN GUARD
The front derailleur hanger is removable, accommodating all drivetrain options. If a single chainring crankset is run, no derailleur hanger is required and precious grams can be saved by removing it. A removable chain guard avoids chain suck in case the chain falls off when a double crankset is used.
OPTIONAL CHAIN GUIDE
The chain guide can be mounted on interfaces of the derailleur hanger and the chain guard when only one chain ring is used. No matter how grim the mud is, the chain guide makes sure the chain is kept in place.
The new Addict uses a race geometry that meets the requirements of both our professional riders and sportive customers who prefer a more aggressive position and very direct handling.
When we first introduced the Addict back in 2008, it was already the lightest bike on the market and seen as the benchmark for the industry. Over the years the family has grown and is now probably the most complete bike series out there. From an ultra-lightweight road bike to the versatile gravel grinder, there are many models to choose from to delight lightweight fans in every discipline.
The tips of our proverbial lightweight icebergs are still our Racing Concept models (RC). These products have been developed to give riders that edge to take the biggest wins in the sport. The remarkably lightweight frame makes the RC every climber’s dream bike. Additionally, we’ve introduced a more affordable version which comes with an endurance geometry for even more
compliance to fit the needs of everyday riders. Those who don’t want to stick to asphalt can go off-road with either the Gravel or our CX. Thanks to its incredibly powerful carbon fibres all Addict models still have the same main feature – a remarkably lightweight frame. For better control, regardless of weather conditions most models are now available with disc brakes.
ADDICT RC RC stands for Racing Concept. This series was designed to fit the demands of our World Tour Teams by providing a remarkably lightweight and stiff frame making it the first choice for every climber. The brand-new Addict RC has our well proven race geometry on which the rider can achieve the ideal position for optimal power transfer and comfort in the saddle.
A D D I C T The disc version combines the superior control of disc brakes with our super-light Addict frame resulting in the perfect bike for any ride. Just be aware, your excuses won’t work anymore if you can’t keep up going down or up the hill with your friends.
ADDICT GRAVEL Our gravel is a real explorer and literally made for every road, wherever you might go. To be able to switch between gravel, asphalt or forest road whenever you want gives you endless possibilities to mix up your ride and explore in an unrestricted fashion. Just hop on your Gravel and see where things go.
ROAD GEOMETRY There are two different geometries for the Addict on-road bike. All RC models have the same well proven geometry as that of the Michelton-SCOTT team bikes, while the others come with a less aggressive and more comfortable endurance geometry. So, if you wake up in the morning, stretch, strap on a heart rate monitor and go KOM hunting, the Addict RC family might be for you. However, if getting out on the bike means that you’re going to be gone for hours, chewing up mile after mile in search of freedom, then perhaps the Addict’s more comfortable geometry is your go to. The beauty with the Addict family is that there is a lightweight and capable road bike for anyone and everyone
