Scott Addict CX Cyclocross Bikes Review
The Scott Addict CX range consists of cyclocross racers designed to be affordable and built for handling and performance.
Scott Addict CX Comp
The Addict CX Comp comes with a double butted alloy frame and a Scott Carbon CX fork up front, keeping the handling precise and the weight low.
A selection of Shimano components come together to form the drivetrain, with a Hollowtech II crank making things light and limber. Tektro 720 CX brakes are tuned for cyclocross use and you get Syncros Race 29 Aero Profile rims, DT 2.0 spokes and Schwalbe Rocket Ron tyres on the wheelset, bringing more durability to the table.
Scott Addict CX Team
The alloy frame and fork of the Addict CX Team ensure stiffness, with a Syncros RR2.0 handlebar letting the rider grapple the bike through any terrain.
Shimano WH R501 hubs, spokes and rims contribute to the wheelset, with Rocket Ron tyres also included.

Scott Addict CX
The fully fledged Addict CX is an all-carbon racer, which benefits from a Ritchey Pro carbon fork and other little touches like carbon cable stops that are a good match for this type of bike.
Maxmud rear stays prevent mud from blocking up the wheels and hampering performance and you get Shimano Ultegra components in the drivetrain, along with Avid Shorty Ultimate brakes for all-weather operational reliability.
The Syncros Carbon R seatpost is light and adjustable, with an RP2.0 saddle from the same manufacturing allowing the rider to remain comfortable through bumpy sections of a race.
Scott sticks with the Shimano WH R501 wheelset for this model, along with the Schwalbe Rocket Ron tyres. All of this packaged with the IMP carbon mainframe makes it a light and strong bike that outdoes its alloy cousins and appeals to serious riders on the cyclocross circuit.
