The Scott Foil is one of the growing number of bikes in the Aero Road category. They are perfect for improving your battle against the wind! The times you’d love a Foil are riding into a headwind, a long solo ride, or when on a breakaway in a race. The aero-shaped tubing makes for a great frame for stronger rider, or someone who loves a good sprint.
The aerodynamic advantages come from the use of “Kamm Tail” shaped tubing. The tubing has an aerodynamic leading edge, and directs the airflow in such a way as it leaves the tube that it acts like there is a much longer tail to the shape. This “virtual tail” allows a tube that has more or less normal width to be very aerodynamic.
