The Scott Addict HMF is a bike you can’t put down. It is fast and fun and does everything well. Based on their race geometry, the same as the aero Foil, the bike is aggressive without being too twitchy. It’s easy to pilot through tight spaces, but doesn’t necessitate too much attention when flying down a mountain.
Scott calls the material used here HMF (high modulus fiber) Carbon Fiber. The particulars of the soup they don’t want to make too clear so their competitors can’t copy it; it’s not as light as their SL or Team frames, but at 860g for the frame and 360g fork, it’s incredibly light stuff. It easily builds into a sub sixteen-pound bike.
Between the material and shaping, the bike is pretty stiff. The main frame is built as a single unit, which they call Integrated Molding Process (IMP), with a 1 1/8” to 1 ¼” tapered steerer in front and the widest BB86 bottom bracket shell you can find, the bike is rigid without pounding the rider. The frameset has also received the F01 aero treatment; the leading edges of frame tubes have been molded into aero shapes to minimize overall frame drag. It’s not as aero as their Foil, but the new Addict is more aero than the old Addict. The aero thinking encompasses internal cable runs, as exposed cables are a persistent drag on your speed. The routing is compatible with both mechanical and electronic shifting.
But they also designed comfort. They utilize a 27.2mm seatpost and what they call the Seattube Stay. The rear triangle was designed as a single piece; with the chainstays being strong enough not to need the seat stays to support them. But the chainstays have vertical flex and are designed to flex upward with the seatstays flexing downward, thus providing ample compliance, even with 23mm tires.
If your yen is to go hard all day, punching climbs and putting on the hurt, the Scott Addict HMF will not only encourage you, but leave you jonesing for more.
