SOC15: Scott Addict CX unveiled as lightest disc brake cyclocross frameset, alloy models coming, too
Scott set about the Addict CX bike’s resurrection with three main goals: Make it lighter, more comfortable and boost stiffness in the bottom bracket and headtube for better handling and power transfer. They also wanted to make the frame more ‘cross specific with race inspired and optimized tube shapes.
Since their last iteration, things have progressed a bit. So disc brakes are a natural, and they went with Shimano’s new flat mount standard and thru axles front and rear to keep it as future proof as possible.
