Scott has a new Addict Gravel bike out and it might be the perfect tool for mountain bikers trying to keep their mileage up in shoulder season, or to work on their under-biking skills. Scott says that the Addict Gravel is “One bike that can do it all. The result is what we believe to be the fastest, most capable, and most fun gravel bike on the market.”
The Addict Gravel has been engineered with a lightweight frame, more progressive geometry, increased tire clearance, and better bag mounting. Scott says that the Tuned frame and fork weighs 1,325g or 2.92lbs. Cable routing is completely internal, and the bike keeps Scott’s streamlined, Syncros-inspired look.
Other gravel touches include 16° of flare on the Addict’s handlebars, shock absorbing bar tape and frame tubing, top tube bag mounts, and 160mm brake rotors. The front is compatible with up to 180mm though, and the rear can be dropped to 140mm rotors. The Addict Gravel comes with tucked away mounts for fends on the seat stay and fork, and the fender will work with tires up to 40mm. Without fenders, tire clearance is 45mm.
The bikes are available with either a 1x or a 2x drivetrain.
Scott also have their female-oriented Contessa line of the Addict gravel bike with the same geometry and design, but different touch points and paint.
Geo on a medium Addict starts with a 71° HTA, a 807mm standover height, a 1,029mm wheelbase, a 73.5° STA, 425mm chainstays, and a 387mm reach.
