Until now Scott’s Addict platform catered to riders seeking light frame weight and efficient performance. Indeed, it’s one of the best all around road bikes we’ve ridden in the last couple years, thanks to a solid mix of low weight, stiffness, power transfer and compliance.
But now the Addict is headed off road, as the Swiss-based bike maker is making its initial foray into the increasingly popular gravel bike segment. The new Scott Addict Gravel Disc features a lightweight HMF carbon frame, disc brakes, and a Shimano Ultegra mechanical drivetrain. The frame has what Scott calls its race-ready endurance geometry, plus there’s ample clearance for wide tires, and precision-enhancing thru-axles front and rear. For now the bike will be offered in just one model. U.S. pricing has yet to be confirmed.
We’ll be getting a closer look at this new rig at Scott’s upcoming U.S. press launch. In the meantime, here’s a breakdown of key highlights, component spec, and a photo gallery.
