Scott Contessa CR1 Pro Triple 2011 Womens Road Bike

Scott Contessa CR1 Pro Triple Overview

As the price rises for this type of road bike you will see the incremental increase in the competence of each individual component whilst the overall weight of the finished product is gradually reduced. The Contessa CR1 Pro Triple from Scott is designed for serious female cyclists who do not want to compromise on any aspect of their bike. If this is the type of set up you are seeking then Scott has made a compelling argument for you to pick its top of the line models for the 2011 season.

As is typical of this type of bike the frame is fashioned from carbon, providing superior strength whilst maintaining a light overall build. Scott has arranged the geometry of the frame not only to accommodate women but also to provide greater ride comfort, so this is an integral feature rather than an afterthought. Mavic provides the rims and Shimano the gears and brakes, so there is plenty of experience being brought together in a way that makes this bike greater than the sum of its parts.

Although a little inappropriate for this type of bike, the white, orange and purple paint job of the Scott Contessa CR1 Pro Triple brings to mind such words as ‘snazzy’ and ‘fun’, which might ultimately bear little impact on whether or not you choose the bike given that it is more about the racing credentials than the detailing on its frame.
