TECH NEWS LIVE: Your chance to test ride a new Scott Foil, Addict and Solace 2017 road bike

Head to Bath in February to test ride the newest Scott road and gravel bikes

The inaugural LIVE demo day takes place in Bath on Sunday 26 February 2017 and we’ve got some great bike brands lined up for you, including Scott, Specialized, Canyon, Cube, Giant, Rose and Ribble. 

We've previously shown you the demo bikes Specialized will be bringing. Today we present a preview of the demo bikes that Scott will be bringing along to the LIVE event.

Launched in 1958 as a ski company before branching out into cycling with its first mountain bike in 1986 and famously developing the first aero barsu sed by Greg LeMond in 1989, the company has plenty of pedigree when it comes to high-performance road bikes - its carbon road and time trial bikes have been some of the most innovative of the past decade. 

So what can you expect to see from Scott? The company will be bringing along its Foil aero road bike, the super lightweight Addict, the Solace endurance bike and for gravel and adventure bikes, there will be the new Addict Gravel. 


The Foil (above) is the bike favoured by the professionals and the latest version offers improved aero performance in a lighter and more compliant package than the original, launched way back in 2011. It’ll be available to ride in RC, 10 and 20 builds. You can read the full story behind the development of this new bike and my first ride impressions in this article. 


Aimed at cyclists that value weight and stiffness for all-round riding, and climbing, ability, the Addict is the company’s lightest offering. It’ll be available to ride in RC Di2 and new 20 Disc flavours. 


If racing isn’t your bag but long-distance challenge rides and sportives are, then the Solace endurance model is the one to make a beeline towards at Live. With the large majority of endurance bikes selling with disc brakes, Scott will present just the Solace 10 Disc.

Finally, with gravel and adventure bikes a rapidly growing category, the new Addict Gravel 20 Disc is sure to draw a crowd.

The LIVE event will be held at Bath's Odd Down circuit. It's a custom-built 1.5km road circuit, and the event has exclusive use of the pristine tarmac all day. No fighting with the traffic on your test rides! Attending LIVE costs just £30, but there's a limited number of early bird tickets available. Book early and save yourself a tenner: you could have a whole day of testing top road bikes for just £20.

He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds, and you can now find him over on his own YouTube channel David Arthur - Just Ride Bikes
