Scott's CR1 Comp is a superb entry into the world of serious racing bikes. All the frame features of the entire CR1 range, with a specification perfectly suited to get you off the metaphorical start line. Fast.
Syncros Race 28 Aero wheels help you punch through the air with the minimum amount of effort, while the Syncros seatpost, saddle, stem and bars keep things light and functional. Shimano 105 and Tiagra groupset are Shimano's lightweight introduction to their racing groups, with much the same functionality as their higher end groups. The compact chainset is the perfect gearing to get you up and over anything that stands in your way.
CR1 is Scott's range of carbon bikes with all day comfort built in and combined with lateral stiffness for fast acceleration. By laying up the carbon fibres in specific directions at each point in each tube, Scott allow the tubes to flex in the direction that absorbs the road vibrations and small bumps but stay stiff and rigid when the power is put down. This SDS (Shock Damping System) is on the rear end and forks of the CR1 range and will keep you fresher for when your energy is required at the final sprint or climbs. This is so effective that it has even helped Pro racers in the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix.
The CR1 range is ideal for anyone wanting a bike for long rides out at the weekend and a fast race-day machine too, both of which you'll appreciate it's shock absorption towards the end when you'll have the edge over the tiring competition.
