Any Trail, Any time. With the all new Genius, this phrase has never rung truer. We’ve given the Genius a total makeover for 2018 and the 740/940 is ready for some singletrack. Our TwinLoc Suspension System to always optimize your ride, and a Sram Eagle drivetrain along with Syncros components combine to create a ride that will get you up and down the mountain without breaking the bank.
The Scott Addict 10 bike is unusual in that the bike is hardly top-of-the-line, but features an 860g frame and Dura-Ace components. The bike, which doesn’t even merit more than a number, 10, still builds into a 15.17lbs bike, WorldTour level, and is suitably stiff.
Scott calls the material used here HMF Carbon Fiber. The particulars of the soup are a bit hazy; 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. Between the material and shaping, the bike is pretty stiff. The main frame is built as a single unit, 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 Addict 10 shares the same racing geometry as Scott’s other Addicts and the Foils as well. The bikes put the rider in an aggressive position without calling for too much attention to steering. It’s easy to slash through a tight peloton, but it doesn’t take too much attention to descend a steep mountain road.
The 10 comes built with a large selection of Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 compments. 9000 is otherwise known as mechanical Dura-Ace, and it is so smooth and light, you’ll wonder why people bother with electronic shifting. The levers are minimal and carbon and sculpted to fit perfectly under your hand. The action is fast and crisp, thanks both to better shifter internals and better lever geometries. The brakes likewise are a huge step forward thanks to the re-defined pivot points; easy one-finger braking and superb modulation. Scott provides a 52/36 semi-compact crank and pairs it with an 11-28 eleven-speed cassette for a wide range of gears with narrow stops in between.
Scott sticks with their Syncros line for the rest of the parts. In some cases, like with the wheels, people might wonder what they have to offer. The answer is plenty. Scott worked with DT Swiss on the wheels, and they offer DT Swiss internals and spokes to go along with DT Swiss-designed Syncros rims. The rims are 21mm wide, 21mm deep, and thanks to the 18/24 spoking arrangement have a 1530g wheelset which is light, stiff, and somwhat aero without carbon-fiber rims. They finish the wheels with Continental Grand Sport Race Folding tires. The 23mm width works well with the rims in terms of fit and aerodynamics.
The Scott Addict 10 is a super-high level bike without the fuss or price tag.
The SCOTT Aspect 950 is a mountain hardtail that is designed to be light, efficient and reasonably priced. Featuring a lockout mechanism for the fork, disc brakes and Syncros components, this is the perfect bike for the novice or budget conscious mountain biker. Available in 29″ wheel size.
The Foil 40 is an Aero Road bike, developed to be faster and more efficient in all ROAD conditions. Featuring an aero HMF carbon fiber frame and a budget conscious build, the Foil 40 is the perfect budget racer.

F01 Aero Technology
F01 Technology is based on the theory that a partial airfoil shape without the trailing edge can produce the same aerodynamic advantage as a traditional foil shape. Modern foil shapes are largely based on models and ratios created for airplanes by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), but because bicycles attain speeds far less than those of airplanes, these ratios do not necessarily apply to bikes. SCOTT Aero Science engineers have thus developed F01 Technology to create unique, bicycle specific tube shapes which maximize aerodynamic efficiency at lower air speeds.
Every tube in the frame is oriented in relation to the leading edges of the down tube and head tube, as these are the first points of contact for any wind influence. The rear stays are oriented 4 degrees from the seat tube plane to route air from the front triangle around the rear triangle cleanly, and are constructed with a carbon layup that additionally results in vertical compliance.
The down tube flares at the oversize bottom bracket junction achieving several design goals. This construction adds lateral stiffness without increasing wall thickness, and the new bottom bracket mold disperses loads to effectively half the stress on this crucial junction. The shape of the down tube and bottom bracket carries seamlessly into the chain stays, further reducing turbulence and creating an additional aero benefit. Also, the drive side outer diameter of the bottom bracket conveniently accommodates an SRM or power meter.

IMP™ Carbon Mainframe
Scott’s engineers have developed IMP™, the newest technology applied to carbon production. Scott’s proprietary process allows for lighter construction by removing 11% of the material from the headtube intersection while increasing strength by utilizing high modulus stressed fibers for more precise fiber placement in critical areas. To compliment the IMP™ process, Scott’s frames benefit from their Naked External Tubeset™, which eliminates the cosmetic carbon layer to shave precious grams. Both HMX and HMF fibers are used in their carbon frames ensuring the utmost durability, security, and longevity for the frame.
