2014 Scott Addict SL

Boasting a frameset that weighs less than 1 kilo (that’s frame and fork), the Addict is back and lighter than ever. By tweaking the HMX Net carbon, the company was able to eek out 39% more comfort from the new frame while increasing BB stiffness by 6%. Aerodynamics weren’t ignored either, with the new frame claiming 25% less wind resistance at 45 KPH.

See the bike in action after the break.


  1. I wonder what laboratory equipment and resulting math is used to evaluate “39% more comfort” on this frame. Maybe they used the Butt-O-Meter

  2. Ha, Velorider said Butt-O-Meter. Because Scott would not want to infringe on Specialized Ass-O-Meter. Don’t believe me, here is a Specialized Fit expert explaining it!

  3. And I always thought an Ass-O-Meter was something the guys used at the beach as a rating system. Well…..spank my bottom, Specialized has a patent on this too!!!

  4. The downtube looks to have a truncated airfoil profile similar to the Foil. It’s good to see aerodynamics getting some attention even on the lightest recent bikes (Cervelo, Scott).

  5. Time for all the haters to ante up. That’s some top notch engineering to reach this weight.

    tip ‘o the hat I say.

  6. Ass-O-Meter…why are they rating donkeys?

    Seriously hot bike though. Is that what Gerrans rode to victory on stage 3 of the TdF?

What do you think?
