Go behind the scenes with the SCOTT Engineers and Product Managers behind the all new FOIL.

The new Foil features the same lightweight frame characteristics as its predecessor. With a frame weight of 945g and a fork weight of 335g (size Medium, including small parts ) the new Foil is one of the lightest Aero Bikes on the market. Our World Tour riders count every gram. 6.8 kilograms is a magic number for them and despite its aerodynamic and stiff nature, it’s actually not a challenge to build the complete bike below this regulatory threshold.

It took no time for the first Foil to gain a reputation for being extremely stiff and responsive with regards to power transfer and handling. In favor of our Pro riders and the customer base that prefers a stiff and responsive bike, the new Foil exhibits even higher stiffness values than its predecessor.

The frame aerodynamics of the bike have been reworked as a whole: all the vertical sections of the frame have been optimized independently and in conjunction with each other, component integration has been lifted to a new level and the bike features a fully integrated cockpit that saves precious watts. Aside from the visible design enhancements with regards to aerodynamics and integration, the riding comfort of the new Foil has been elevated noticeably. The new Foil keeps the much appreciated characteristics of the original model but adds novel and innovative solutions to make it faster as a whole: It’s a Speed Update!
