Scott Foil Team Issue

Cycling Weekly has a review from 2015 detailing the acceleration, that is sharp and immediately responsive to sprinting without compromise. There are also good comments about the surprising comfort: which has been improved over the last model, giving a decent ride despite being an aero racing bike and the great components especially the wheels and frame which combine to give a super fast race bike. This review gives a rating of 4.5/5.

There is a review from Bike Radar from February 2016 which firstly emphasises the ride, which gives you full aero race winning capability, while also remaining acceptably comfortable over longer distances. Also mentioned in this review is the speed: as a result of excellent frame rigidity and responsiveness, combined with the braking which copes well with all conditions to give confidence at speed. If you're interested in ratings, this review gives the bike a 4.5/5.


Scott Foil

There is a review from Velonews from 2016 which firstly emphasises the comfort/speed mix, because Scott have designed the bike to be more accessible to riders who want speed but not at the price of being rattled and bumped for hours. Also mentioned in this review is the integration: with the handlebar and stem, which allows for the neat tucking away of cables, combined with the brakes which seem well balanced and strong enough for most conditions and speeds.

Reviews include Wired.com from 2015 (covering the 10 model) and describing the great comfort/speed mix, as the aero design and stiff frame allow rapid speed changes, but without too much discomfort if you are on a long race. It also comments on the weight/speed balance: as Scott have made the bike aero enough without causing undue frame flex, plus the versatility because you can use this bike for variable speed races or time trials and triathlons. This site rates this bike at 4.0/5.

Outside Online has a review from 2012 (covering the 20 model) and detailing the choice of specifications, which allows you to fit your level of component performance to your budget. There are also good comments about the balance of speed and comfort: with the aero design elements reducing drag on faster rides while the bike still handles like a standard racer on hills and drops and the comfort despite being a fast race bike, there is enough flex to maintain a surprising level of comfort on long rides.
