Scott Foil Review
The Scott Foil family of road bikes is build for racing, with light and aerodynamic frame designs allowing riders to make the most of their skills in competition.
The range is built with carbon frames and utilses the best Shimano components to ensure smooth gear action and stiff, lightweight frames. The Scott Foil range are all 5 star bikes, no debate.
Scott Foil 20
The HMF carbon frame of the Foil 20 uses F01 Aero technology, allowing the tubing to cut through the air with ease. It achieves this while still remaining stiff and lightweight, harnessing a carbon fork, steerer and dropout to the list of core components.
The Shimano 105 drivetrain and BR-R561 Black brakeset are a good starting point for the range, making the Foil 20 appealing while still giving its costlier sibling somewhere to go.
Shimano WH R501 ? 30 rims and spokes are wrapped with Continental Grand Sport Race Fold tyres and you get other benefits including a Ritchey Foil Aero Pro carbon seatpost topped with a Syncros RP2.0 saddle.
Scott Foil 15
The Foil 15’s carbon frame has been created to ensure that the entire fuselage keeps air flowing cleanly over it, rather than weaving in and out and disrupting stability. An integrated seatclamp and oversized bottom bracket keep the bike light and stiff, with the carbon seatpost sporting a Syncros RP1.5 saddle on titanium rails.
The Shimano Ultegra drivetrain of the Foil 15 uses electronic shifting technology for increased speed and smoothness to each gear change, which is precisely the kind of capability that professional racers look for in a road bike.
Scott Foil 10
For the Foil 10 the Shimano Ultegra drivetrain does not come with electronic shifting, instead relying on the traditional mechanical setup that has worked so well for decades.
Ultegra BR-6800 Grey Super SLR dual pivot brakes are part of this package, with Syncros RP2.0 saddle, hubs, spokes and rims also onboard.
