The Foil has been Scott’s flagship high end road bike for many years. The disc version has the same lightweight and aero frame as its rim brake version and is still among the lightest aero bikes on the market. In order to minimize air drag and to optimize performance in cross winds the fork is made using a one-piece construction that allows for light weight with increased stiffness.
