Scott's Foil 15 is a fantastic way to get into the latest technology available. Foil aerodynamics combined with Shimano Ultegra Di2 electronic shifting is surely a winning combination. It's just down to you to prove it!
Sharing the same stealth looks as the range-topping Foil Premium, it provides all the same benefits; immediate, precise shifting from the Ultegra Di2 gearing, aero Syncros wheels for cutting through the wind along with the aero frame and components. Syncros finishing kit provides stiff and light bars and stem for out of the saddle sprinting.
Scott have their own team of engineers whose job it is to create the most aerodynamic bikes possible, by experimentation and then scientific testing in wind tunnels and real world conditions. The outcome is the FOIL; the lightest aero bike out there. All the tubes are designed with the leading edges facing the wind using the F01 aero shape, with a partial aero shape producing the same effect as a full aero, and the tubes then morphing into the shapes that can give stiffness in the areas that are required, such as the BB area. Touches like the tapered head tube and integrated seat clamp either add to the stiffness or reduce the drag.
By making the lightest aero, the FOIL is the ideal bike in any scenario within a race, be it climbing with it's lack of weight, descending or sprinting utilising it's stiffness or cutting through the air on the flat. In fact, Scott's experiments have shown a saving 15 Watts at 45 km/h, resulting in a 4-5% overall gain on a flat course. Who can argue with that?
