SCOTT FOIL Premium Disc

The SCOTT FOIL Premium Disc pushes the boundaries of aero bikes. With a mind-boggling weight of 7.3 kg for the disc version, not only does the FOIL break weight records, but it also accelerates incredibly well thanks to its stiff frame. The standard 28 mm-wide Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II tires provide confidence to steam through gravel and cobblestone and open up entirely new riding possibilities. It’s not surprising that the FOIL has already claimed stage victories in Grand Tours and podium places in classic races such as the Milano-San Remo and Paris-Roubaix. Technical integration is of the highest order and is cleverly implemented without being too complex. This means emergency repairs can be carried out quickly on long tours and in the middle of a race. This much performance and versatility comes at a price, however: with a Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupset and Zipp 303 NSW Disc Firecrest wheels, the FOIL will set you back exactly € 11,999. Our only criticism goes to the sharp edge of the integrated cockpit, which affects the comfort of the bike.
