…comfort geometry, comfort ride from Scott, the Masters of Carbon. Now in its 4th year since its radical re-design in 2010, the Scott CR1 remains at the cutting edge of ride quality. Full carbon HMF Net 980g frame and full carbon fork including steerer tube. High quality and lightweight finishing kit (either Scott’s own or, for some higher spec models, Ritchey).
The model hierarchy has remained the same in 2010, 2011, 2102 and 2013:
CR1 Comp – external bearing bottom bracket in 2010 and 2011, press fit in 2012 and 2013. Remains a 24mm bottom bracket shell, compared to the BB30 or PF30 of some of its competitors. Reviewers have noted some bottom bracket flex compared to stiffer 30mm bikes, but we think it’s barely discernible. 2011: Shimano 105 5700 mix. 2012: Shimano Tiagra 4600 mix. 2013: Shimano 105 mix, Scott’s own wheels. So whether yours is a 2011 or 2013, you are essentially getting the same bike, only the 2012 is slightly lower spec.
CR1 Team – same frame as the Comp, but with a press fit 24mm bottom bracket shell. 2010: full Shimano 105 5600 series including chainset and brakes. Mavic Aksium wheelset. 2011: ditto, but now with Shimano 105 5700. 2012: as 2011. 2013: loses the Mavic Aksium wheels in favour of Scott’s own-brand Syncros. So, the best specs were the 2011 and 2012 bikes, for those placing a premium on the excellent Mavic wheels. The 2010 bikes are dated by virtue of their Shimano 105 5600 components. 2013 is the first year of the Syncros wheels.
CR1 Elite – SRAM Rival spec. Light, but eclipsed by the Shimano-equipped Team and Pro models.
CR1 Pro – full Shimano Ultegra 6700 groupset in all years 2010-13. Mavic’s superb Ksyrium Elite wheelset in 2010, 2011 and 2012, moving to Syncros own-brand in 2013. So essentially whether you have a 2010, 2011, 2012 or 2013 bike, it’s the same, only the colour (and price) differ across model years.
RRP for the frameset (frame, fork, headset) is £1249 but we can custom build any specification from £1350 for a complete bike. Includes choice of tyre, gearing, saddle and bar tape at no extra cost…and a full professional bike fit.
Earlier season models are great alternative to 2016 Scott CR1s; for example, a 2011 CR1 Team wipes the floor with a 2016 Scott CR1 20 at a similar price.
Frame - HMF fibre on the 2011, a lower modulus and heavier carbon is now on the '16 Scott. Groupset - a full 105 groupset including brakes and gears on the 2011 bike (albeit 10-speed rather than the 11-speed mix of the 2016 CR1). Wheels - much better Mavic Aksium factory wheels on the 2011, compared to the Syncros on the 2016. Overall weight - a featherweight 7.3kgs for the 2011 bike, compared to a relatively lardy 8.2kgs for the 2016 bike.
