FOIL DISC TECHNOLOGIES
The later you brake the longer you can keep your speed. We gain speed and performance not only with aerodynamics and increased power output but also with braking performance. The lines you take, the trust in your bike and management of your speed provides you with a new way of winning seconds and more possibilities to decide a race. The Foil Disc gives you trust in your bike to carry your speed until the last possible moment in all conditions.
The PF86 bottom bracket allows for a wide connection of the downtube and the tapered seat tube to the BB. SCOTT’s patented carbon manufacturing process and its unique carbon lay-up enable an extremely stiff bottom bracket.
The fork has been completely redesigned to manage the asymmetrical forces of disc brakes and to guarantee perfect airflow around the calipers. Internal brake cable routing and ample tire clearance accommodate up to 30C tires.
Thru-axles are designed to be as quick and easy to use as a regular quick release, while at the same time offering extra strength, stiffness and security. Wheels with a thru axle closing mechanism offer unparalleled precision when it comes to positioning the disc brake within the brake system. Thanks to SCOTT’s proprietary thru axle technology with a pitch of 1.5mm wheel changes are almost as fast as with a normal QR.
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. This concept was most evident with Mat Hayman’s Paris Roubaix win in 2016. The focused approach to improve comfort on the Foil resulted in a sizeable increase in vertical compliance.
