Back in 2010 SCOTT introduced the Foil, an aerodynamically optimized road bike that featured truncated airfoils which are now used on many aero bikes today. SCOTT was one of the first bike manufacturers to file a patent for this specific airfoil shape. With the truncated airfoil, SCOTT's Aerodynamic Science unit intended to work around the drawbacks of UCI-regulations that give a limit of a 3:1 airfoil ratio. As a consequence of this regulation, aerodynamic tube shapes, with their traditional tear drop shape often lack the required stiffness or the additional material required to achieve the required stiffness, resulting in an added weight penalty. The truncation of the airfoil solves this issue. While the aerodynamic performance of the airfoil is comparable to a traditional tear drop airfoil, stiffness and weight characteristics are substantially improved As much as its predecessor, the new Foil is an aero bike to the core that maintains a low weight room because for our professionals, every gram counts.
