About Scott Addict RC 15 2022
The Addict RC represents the value of light weight like no other road bike out there. Carbon know-how and manufacturing expertise allow Scott to offer one of the lightest production bikes on the market without any compromise on stiffness or pedaling efficiency.
RC stands for Racing Concept. This series was designed to fit the demands of Scott's World Tour Teams by providing a remarkably lightweight and stiff frame making it the first choice for every climber. The brand-new Addict RC has Scott's well proven race geometry on which the rider can achieve the ideal position for optimal power transfer and comfort in the saddle.
The Addict RC is the benchmark road bike when it comes to racing. It is designed to fit the needs of Team DSM and ambitious everyday riders alike. Extremely lightweight, Scott’s strongest carbon structure to date and with completely integrated cable routing and aero features, the all new Addict RC is a dream bike from every angle.
Light, fast, and ready to turn heads. The Addict RC 15 provides you with all of the competitive advantage you've ever dreamed of. Fully integrated cables and race-ready spec combine to give you the tool to sprint to a mountain top finish or win your local criterium.
Integration: The Addict RC is the first ever road bike with completely integrated cable routing for both mechanical and electronical shifting. This was achieved without any compromise on shifting or braking quality, nor on the stiffness of the headset. In addition, it was designed to be easy for mechanics to change cables and maintain the bike.
Lightweight and Stiffness: Through clever layering and reinforcement in certain zones, Scott achieved more stiffness at the bottom bracket and headset without any compromise on the compliance of the seat stays. Furthermore, a completely hollow structure as well as minimum bonding points and no alloy parts for drop outs or brake mounts ultimately makes an extremely light frame set.
Syncros Creston IC Handlebar: Clean and uncluttered, the new Syncros combo cockpit allows Scott to route all the cables completely internally through the bar, headset and into the frame as part of their new ICC routing. Working with internationally renowned partner Gebiomized, Scott has created the ultimate ergonomic shape for riders. The V-shape has also allowed them to drop the weight and optimize stiffness, simultaneously improving cable routing making mechanics' lives easier. You can get more aero too by tucking the new computer integration into the gap.
Comfort Zone Construction: Like the Foil the new Addict RC has low seat stay attachments which lead to a smooth riding experience even when it gets rough. This is achieved without any effect on pedaling efficiency and stiffness of the bottom bracket.
Geometry: The new Addict uses a race geometry that meets the requirements of both Scott's professional riders and sportive customers who prefer a more aggressive position and very direct handling.
