Introducing the 2020 Scott Addict
Some Michelton-Scott riders- for example Adam Yates who is competing on the composite podium- are already on the saddle of the new Scott Addict at the Tour de France.
The key of the 2020 Scott Addict is full integration, that means that the brake cables and shift cables are fully hidden, not only in the frame, but also inside the stem and the handlebars. This gives a unique, clean look for the disc brake bicycle.
The hidden wiring has not been the mechanics favorite, because it's often difficult to find the right holes for the wires during a rebuild. Another problem is that the hidden wires may break in small arches and this can even reduce the quality of the shifting (in case of bowden).
The answer to all of this is Scott's brand new solution: an eccentric steering bearing cup, which has spacers for the cables in the front as shown in the pictures. Combined with a specially shaped Syncros steering wheel with a larger curve, it is guaranteed that there will be no breakage after the assembly.
The frame is made of the highest quality carbon-fiber which couldn’t be lighter. Almost all of its predecessors were one of the lightest bicycles in the world, but the stiffness indicators of the front and midsection were further improved. Of course there is no problem with the mass data either. Adam Yates's disc brake bike with pedals was made exactly for the UCI's 6,8 kg weight limit.
Yates bicycle has a special painting, the so-called chameleon-black. Depending on the light it blends in metallic blue, metallic green or metallic purple with the usual huge yellow Scott logo.
