Scott Addict SL: for the weight weenie1

According to Scott, the Addict is the lightest production frameset and it’s noticeably light in your hands. Like wow light. Carbon racing frames in this class hover around 2 pounds plus a bag of chips. The Scott drops another 1/2 pound by removing carbon weave and all the frame bits are carbon: dropouts, cable guides.
The biggest difference is that Scott is using a high-modulus carbon, which means they can build the frame with less material.
Also build it stiff as f*ck. I rode a Scott R2 earlier this year in Greenville.
*Weighed on a postage scale.
