First Look: Scott Foil – A Revitalized Aero Road Bike

Just in time for the Tour de France

Press Release

Since its introduction back in 2010, many races have been won on the Foil. To date, the Scott Foil holds 33 Grand Tour stage wins, four Monuments and one UCI Elite World Title. The Foil has been first across the finish line in 182 races at the highest level of cycling. At this year’s Tour de France Mitchelton-Scott’s sprinters Luka Mezgec and Daryl Impey will use the Foil for flat and lumpier stages to chase yet more glory.

The new Foil comes with the well-proven lightweight and aerodynamic genetics as the previous version, but features now fully integrated cable routing and a unique color scheme.
Givisiez, Switzerland. The core of the Scott Foil’s aerodynamic construction is still its patented airfoil design- F01 Technology making it one of the lightest Aero Bikes to date. In order to minimize its air drag even further and optimize its overall performance the new Scott Foil received a completely redesigned cockpit including fork, headset and handlebar as known from the Addict RC. This allows for fully internal cable routing both for mechanical and electronic shifting. A feature possible due to SCOTT’s patented eccentric bicycle fork shaft design, which allows zero compromise on shifting, braking, steering performance or head tube stiffness.

The new Foil will make its debut at the upcoming Tour de France. It will be the bike of choice for Mitchelton-Scott sprinters Daryl Impey and Luka Mezgec for flat and lumpier stages.
For the Scott Foil models 10 and 30 a very unique paint was applied. At first look from the distance and without light exposure the bike seems to be subtle and almost black. However, under light the bike comes alive reflecting bright colors that change at every angle. Purple? Green? Blue? A wide range of different colors that give the impression that it is a different bike each time you see it.
