About Scott Addict Gravel 30 Disc 2018
The SCOTT Addict Gravel 30 Disc has been set up to allow you to ride any road, anywhere and in any weather conditions. A lightweight HMF Carbon fiber frame, Syncros components, some rugged Schwalbe G-One tires and Shimano Hydraulic disc brakes give you a rig that will let you get your adventure on, but at a fraction of the cost. Find yourself, get lost.
If you’re looking for a lightweight bike that can hop from the road onto less taken paths, look no further than the Addict gravel. We have embraced our light weight obsession to create a state of the art, gravel grinding adventure Machine. Combine both excellent stiffness and comfort values, high end componentry and looks to boot and you’ve got yourself a sidekick for anything the day throws at you.
Lightweight Construction: The Addict Gravel uses an HMX carbon fiber blend that has inherently excellent stiffness-to-weight characteristics. The front triangle is manufactured using SCOTT’s IMP Technology which results in incredibly lightweight construction.
Comfort Zone: The Addict Gravel’s seat stays are directly connected with the toptube. Additionally, the toptube becomes more oval towards the connection with the seattube. On top of this the Addict Gravel uses a 27.2mm seat post which features enhanced comfort characteristics compared to a 31.6mm seat post. The combination of these factors results in an increase in vertical compliance and in comfort by 61.5%.
Tapered Headtube: The Addict Gravel features 1 1/8” to 1 1/2” integrated bearings and a tapered headtube. The headtube diameter allows for wider connections of the toptube and downtube which results in an increase of torsional stiffness by 32%. The rigid front end enables direct, precise and safe handling of the bike, even in the most technical of turns.
PF86 Bottom Bracket: The PF86 bottom bracket allows for a wide connection of the downtube and the tapered seattube to the BB box. Together with a stiffness-optimized lay-up and SCOTT’s patented carbon manufacturing process, the BB stiffness is increased.
Tyre Clearance: Exploring gravel roads can lead to some muddy riding from time to time. Tire clearance can therefore be a decisive factor in a day staying great or turning horribly wrong. The fork and frame are built so that even in the muddiest of conditions the wheels turn unrestricted.
Removable Derailleur Hanger/Chain Guard: The front derailleur hanger is removable, accommodating all drivetrain options. If a single chainring crankset is run, no derailleur hanger is required and precious grams can be saved by removing it. A removable chain guard avoids chain suck in case the chain falls off when a double crankset is used.
Optional Chain Guide: The chain guide can be mounted on interfaces of the derailleur hanger and the chain guard when only one chain ring is used. No matter how grim the mud is, the chain guide makes sure the chain is kept in place.
