The Scott Contessa JR 20 Inch is a kid’s bike with a frame that is designed for girls and a look that is lean, mean and predominantly green. It comes from a family of bikes, which includes many formidable machines and so it borrows many of the features and capabilities from the adult versions, transposing them onto a smaller form factor for the benefit of keen, younger female cyclists. For those who want to make their first foray into the world of off road cycling, it is a great choice.

Scott Contessa JR 20 Inch 2011 Overview

With geometry that is suitable for girls and a sturdy alloy construction, the frame of the Scott Contessa JR 20 Inch is fit for purpose. Added to this groundwork are Shimano gears with six different positions for varied power and a front fork that comes complete with suspension from the RST Capa T20 range. This all comes together to provide support, speed and long lasting durability, all of which are necessary components for any competitive bike worth its salt, no matter what age group they are targeting.

With lime green styling and cool branding seeming to swarm over the frame, this may be a girl’s bike by name but it looks like a serious machine, suitable for either gender and so less likely to feel patronising to female riders. The fact that on closer inspection there are green butterflies married with this design does at least hint at the feminine origins of the bike, but it is this subtlety that helps it to be judged on its performance rather than just its looks.
