New Scott Foil goes 20% faster, loses weight and builds extra comfort - plus a rear light - into its aero seatpost

We've never seen a WorldTour bike with an integrated light - is this a world first?

Swiss brand Scott has just released the latest iteration of the Foil, its speed focused raced machine.

When we had the previous model - the £8,000 Scott Foil Premium - on test, we were highly impressed by the sheer speed when pacing along the flat - but it certainly wasn’t the lightest or most comfortable aero bike out there.

I’ve been hooked on bikes ever since the age of 12 and my first lap of the Hillingdon Cycle Circuit in the bright yellow kit of the Hillingdon Slipstreamers. For a time, my cycling life centred around racing road and track. 

But that’s since broadened to include multiday two-wheeled, one-sleeping-bag adventures over whatever terrain I happen to meet - with a two-week bikepacking trip from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia being just the latest.

I still enjoy lining up on a start line, though, racing the British Gravel Championships and finding myself on the podium at the enduro-style gravel event, Gritfest in 2022.
