The CAL SeventyOne group reaches in between the rules of aerodynamics and also light-weight design with the Foil as well as Addict
Bike sponsorship comes thanks to Scott and also the group have the selection of the aero Foil or the overall, and also lighter weight Addict. The last is the selection of Stef Clement, which is possibly an uncommon selection for a while test expert – he is a four-time Dutch nationwide champ.
He could climb up, however, as one the Mont Ventoux phase he completed (in advance of the Chris Froome dramatization) 4th behind phase victor Thomas de Gendt. He’s the road leader of the group, and also in spite of plainly intending to conserve power for the time test the adhering to day, he discovered himself in a great placement to possibly take the phase win. It really did not rather function out for him, as he clarifies.
Allow’s have an appearance at this bike. It’s the most recent generation Addict which was presented back in 2013 after a couple of years lack from Scott’s variety. The framework as well as fork are made from HMX Net SL carbon fiber as well as with each other consider an asserted 995g.
Scott has actually likewise brought several of its aero expertise from the Foil to the Addict. The primary tubes have actually a somewhat abbreviated airfoil account that is stated to minimize drag at 45kph by 13.2% compared with the old bike. The aero revamping of normal overall road bikes is something we’re seeing a great deal much more currently, Cannondale and also Canyon have actually done just like their light-weight overall road bikes.
The framework is clothed with a complete Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupset with DT Swiss wheels, with a 55mm deep-section back wheel, which is quite common, yet a shallower 38mm front edge, which is a little abnormally, little bit something we’ve seen a great deal a lot more in this year’s race.
Running a shallower front edge decreases the total weight, helpful for the climbs up, yet it’s additionally excellent in windier problems.
He makes use of the optional Di2 shifter case connected to the aluminium Syncros handlebars. Syncros additionally provides the seatpost, stem and also saddle.
His bike is geared up with CeramicSpeed base brace bearings and also jockey wheels.
This is Sondre Holst Enger’s bike, the Norwegian biker on the IAM Cycling group. He picks the Foil for its aero advantages, and also since he’s the sprinter on the group – he completed 6th on phase 3, however the young cyclist confesses he has some means to precede knowing his long for winning a phase of the Tour de France.
” I still have some everythings to find out prior to I should contend to win a phase such as this at the Tour de France,” he claims.
” I am pleased with my location in this sprint where you needed to have the large power to pass your opponents. All the individuals that completed in advance of me are most definitely participants of the sprint elite. I truly have likewise to say thanks to the effort that the group provided for me, and also give thanks to Reto Hollenstein for positioning me so well.”
The bike, like many in the professional peloton, is geared up with a complete Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupset with an SRM power meter.
Unlike a lot of Shimano groups that likewise make use of the business’s PRO wheels, IAM Cycling is the only group to make use of DT wheels. It supplies the group fairly a variety of selection, the primary distinction being the deepness of the edge. Elmiger has a set of 55mm deep RC55T Spline carbon tubular wheels with 25mm Continental Competition ProLtd tires.
Sondre Holst Enger’s bike has the brand-new aero stem and also handlebar which are molded from carbon fiber as one item. The wires typically aren’t transmitted inside the handlebar like on the Specialized Venge, however course right into the structure through the down tube. A crucial part of the stem is the triangular area at the rear of the stem, developed to smooth air flow around that location of the stem.
Like numerous modern-day aero road bikes, the back brake is placed under the chain stays. The suggestion is to put it from the air flow as well as minimize drag around the normal seat stay area.
