Scott unveiled the latest incarnation of its Addict cyclocross bike this week, the CX10 – touting it as the lightest and stiffest “mudder” on the market.
Making use of their IMP carbon lay-up process, the results yielded a frame that’s just 890g for a size 54. Moreover, Scott claims that they’ve been able to optimize comfort for the new CX10 as well, by incorporating many of the larger tube shapes and profiles of its Solace road bike, to include a massive BB86 bottom, a 27.2 seat post, hollow rear carbon drop-outs, while also lowering the junction of the seat stays and seat tube.
In addition, the head tube now uses integrated headset bearings, which in turn allowed Scott to increase its size and length in order to make it stiffer and lighter.
Furthermore, the CX10’s front derailleur mount is now removable, which compliments any 1x setup, with a clean and tidy appearance.
As far as the fork is concern, Scott chose an asymmetrical design, which they say is better suited to handle the higher load imposed by the disc brake. They’ve also tweaked the pitched of the thru axles a bit, thus allowing for quicker removal and/or tightening of wheels.
According to Scott, they heeded the request for greater tire clearance as well.
Indeed, after increasing clearance in both the seat and chain stays, along with the fork, the new CX10 can accommodate tires up to 40mm.
Other nice touches on the frame include internal cable routing that’s more accessible for servicing and cleaning, and a spare port to accommodate the eventuality of dropper seat posts used in cyclocross.
Lastly, the CX10 will be available as complete bikes with either a mechanical or electronic groupset.
