Orica-Scott Team RC

Scott’s RC (or racing concept) bikes will be put to the ultimate test in 2017.

Swiss bike maker SCOTT has stepped in as co-title sponsor of the ORICA WorldTour team that’s now known as ORICA-SCOTT. With Australia’s Tour Down Under starting January 14, ORICA-SCOTT racers will ride with the new RC team bike designs the very first time, the SCOTT Foil RC and Addict RC, which allow for choice between pure aerodynamics and light weight. For Time Trails, the team rides the SCOTT Plasma.

The Foil RC of ORICA-SCOTT is linked to SCOTT`s actual inline RC model. The pro rider`s bike is primarily spec’d with Syncros and Shimano parts. The RC design represents SCOTT`s Racing Concept, a 100% race-dedicated line which includes bikes and head-to-toe gear and apparel.

Orica-Scott Foil RC

Even standing still the Foil looks fast.

The Foil RC is a pure race machine with fully integrated Syncros aero cockpit. Highlights include an integrated Shimano Di2 groupset and unique aero seatpost construction.

With a frame weight of 945g and a fork weight of 335g (size Medium, including small parts) the Foil is one of the lightest aero bikes on the market. The current Foil also exhibits even higher stiffness values than its predecessor. Aside from the visible design enhancements with regards to aerodynamics and integration, the riding comfort of the new Foil has been elevated.

Orica-Scott Addict RC

The Addict is SCOTT’s light weight climbing machine.

For big climbing days, look for team riders to choose the Addict RC Di2, which comes equipped with an HMX Carbon Fiber frame and fork that weighs in at just 790g and 300g respectively.

ORICA-SCOTT riders will also be riding the latest Syncros components including the RR1.0 aero bar/stem combo, the RR1.0 saddle, and the FL1.0SL seat post. The new, fully integrated RR1.0 cockpit from Syncros was developed in conjunction with the new Foil and adds to the aerodynamics of this bike. Full integration of brake cables, mechanical and electronic shifting cables, and Shimano’s Di2 junction box ensure a smooth transition between the cockpit and the frame, a clean look and aerodynamic cable routing. Now it’s up to the team’s riders to put all this technology to work.
