2016 Scott Foil Team Issue Medium (54cm)

Description

**Buyer is responsible for all duties and taxes** Even as Scott was happy with their original Foil, and it proved its worth with victories on the WorldTour, they knew two things about it. It may be faster. It may be more comfortable. After years of research and development, the new Foil, often referred to as HMX for the carbon-fiber employed, and deployed in the Premium and Team Issue frames has met those goals.For the geometry, Scott has stuck with their race geometry from both the previous Foil and the current Addict lines. It’s snappy without being too twitchy, and has been proven at the WorldTour under both the IAM and Orica-Greenedge teams. Classics wins, stage wins as well as stints in the Yellow, Pink, and Red jerseys are testimony to its success.Aero road bikes have a well-deserved reputation for feeling too stiff at the saddle. The previous Foil, Even as fast, suffered from this. So they worked on increasing compliance. They flattened the top tube. The thinned the seat tube. They designed a smaller seatpost that was still aero, and they both slimmed the seat stays and placed them lower on the seat tube. These features strengthen compliance by 89% over the previous bike. And, if you wish to get even more comfort, you’ll be able to run tires up to 28mm wide.But they also increased lateral stiffness. Thanks to a redesigned head tube and a 1 1/2” lower steerer, the bike is 13.5% stiffer at the head than the previous Foil. That makes steering and out-of-saddle accelerations more efficient. They also increased lateral stiffness at the bottom bracket by 13% thanks to new tube shapes. Power transfer is faster, easier, and puts more of your energy into driving the bike forward.And they did all this by saving you an extra six watts over the previous Foil. That might not seem like much, but keep in mind that aero is almost all the time on. They worked the aero edge in a lot of ways, from the improved shaping of the various tubes to the integrated stem and handlebar combo, which is not only faster, but also will remain aero if you add spacers under the stem-they’ve designed aero spacers to keep the bike sleek. The bar/stem combo weighs a scant 395g for the 42cm bar. Even the brakes are helping you. They’ve molded in direct-mount threads and the rear brake hides from the wind under the bottom bracket.Scott has a reputation for building light bikes. They’re mindful of that and keep that tradition alive with the Foil. The 54 frame weighs in at 945g and the fork 320g.Bottom Bracket Shimano SM-BB92-41Brake Calipers Shimano Dura-Ace 9010 Direct Mount Front, Shimano Ultegra 6810 Direct Mount RearCassette Shimano Dura-Ace 9000Chain Shimano HG900Crankset Shimano Dura-Ace 9000, 53/39Fork Foil HMX Carbon, 1 1/4″-1 1/2″Frame Material HMX CarbonFront Derailleur Shimano Dura-Ace 9000Handlebar Syncros Road RR1.0 Carbon FOIL ComboHeadset Syncros IntegratedPedals Not IncludedRear Derailleur Shimano Dura-Ace 9000Saddle Prologo Zero II TitaniumSeatpost Syncros Foil Aero CarbonShifters / Levers Shimano Dura-Ace 9000Stem Syncros Road RR1.0 Carbon FOIL ComboTires Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II, 700x23cWheel – Front Zipp 60 ClincherWheel – Rear Zipp 60 Clincher
