Scott Addict RC 15 review

Aug 2020 · Josh Croxton

At less than half the price of the range-topping Addict RC Ultimate, is the Addict RC 15 less than half as good?

Highs
  • Confidence-inspiring ride

  • On-trend tan-walled tyres and matching saddle

  • Tubeless ready wheels

  • Ultegra Di2 is faultless as ever

Lows
  • Flimsy derailleur hanger

  • Only missing a power meter

May 2020 · David Kennedy

SRAM’s gearing matched with the high overall compliance of the Scott Addict RC 20 adds much needed versatility to the market of increasingly compartmentalized road bike designs.

Scott Addict RC 2020 first-ride review: Now aero’ized - CyclingTips

Jun 2019 · Dave Everett

It was 2007 when Scott first revealed its 790g ultra-light Addict platform. With it, Scott set a new benchmark for light and stiff racing frames, and a number of competitors spent years trying (with some success) to beat it. Since then, the Addict RC, Scott’s answer to a lightweight all-around race machine, has been ridden […]

Highs
  • Amazingly responsive, but still comfortable for all-day racing. Clever integration and attention to detail.

Lows
