2011 Scott F01 Aero Road Bike
Displayed first by video, the 2011 Scott F01 Aero Road Bike will take part in the 2010 Tour de France by Mark Cavendish, Bernard Eisel and other HTC-Columbia team riders.
The Scott 2011 F01 Aero Road Bike transfers the stiffness and weight from the Scott Addict, but make the bike more aerodynamic, resembling the Plasma 3 Time Trial and Triathlon bike from last years Tour de France. After completion, the Scott F01 2011 weighs 840 grams, and is said to be one of the most aerodynamic frames on the market.
First tested at the Mercedes Benz Gran Prix wind tunnel, and due to the tubing which is a virtually flat trailing edge, the 2011 Scott F01 Aero can eliminate drag between 20% – 30%. Also comparing the F01 Aero to the Addict, the F01 uses a stiffer bottom bracket and rear hub. Lastly, the front triangle is made out of IMP known as Integrated Molding Process, this took away around 13% of weight. As of now, MSRP and release is not known.
