The Scott Sportster range of hybrid bikes are designed to fit a number of requirements, whether you are taking on a long distance road tour or looking for transportation for commuting. You get the kind of comfort and convenience of other hybrid bikes, combined with performance that helps to keep each ride interesting.
Scott Sportster 60
The Sportster 60 features a 6061 alloy frame which is ready to receive Scott’s own urban kit line of accessories. You get a steel fork for durability and strength, while a selection of Shimano components come together to make up the drive train.
Wellgo M095 pedals help to deliver power to the Araya GP-722 rims wrapped in S207 tyres. The Sportster saddle is comfortable without being complex, which is a good description for the rest of the bike as a whole.
Scott Sportster 50
This model introduces a Suntour NEX fork to the alloy frame of its siblings, with 63mm of travel on offer to help it absorb the kinds of lumps and bumps that are sure to come the way of a rider tackling urban roads.
Scott Comp V-Brakes at the front and rear will help you to keep the bike under control, while the stiff, responsive ride will let you get up to speed quickly; a particularly important consideration when sharing the roads with other vehicles.
Scott Sportster 55
The same alloy frame and Suntour fork with 63mm of travel are present and correct, along with Shimano Acera, FD and FC components on the transmission and brakes.
The brakes are of the mechanically operated disc variety, for added stopping power and reliability. Meanwhile the saddle is designed for both male and female riders, which makes the bike a versatile choice.
Scott Sportster 40
Maintaining the theme of its predecessors the Sportster 40 features the reliable alloy frame/fork combo and adds to it a selection of components from the Shimano Alivio and Deore ranges.
The brakes here go back to being straightforward Scott Comp V-Brakes, but the bike also features the Araya TX-733 rims combined with the Schwalbe Smart Sam tyres for good all-weather performance that is suitable for urban and light all-terrain use.
Scott Sportster 30
The 6061 alloy frame, Suntour NEX fork with integrated lockout, Ritche OE Logic Zero semi-integrated headset and the other bells and whistles associated with the Sportster range are all onboard this model.
To this formula are added Shimano components from the Alivio and Deore range, while the brakes department is bolstered thanks to Shimano BR-M446 hydraulic disc brakes. These improve the slickness of the operation and the subtlety with which you can control the bike’s speed.
Scott Sportster 20
Towards the top of the Sportster range there are number of changes. The frame gets the Suntour NCX-D LO-A fork which operates smoothly and retains the 63mm of available travel from its stable mates. It is also replete with kit from the Shimano Deore groupset while using the same hydraulic disc brakes as found on the Sportster 30.
Araya DS-700 Disc rims are combined with Schwalbe Rapid Rob tyres for a platform that will give you long distance consistency and durability.
Scott Sportster 10
The Scott Sportster 10 is lighter and more agile than the cheaper bikes in this range thanks to the use of Shimano XT components in the drive train. Further weight is reduced thanks to the use of Rigida Taurus Disc rims and the same Rapid Rob tyres found elsewhere.
While you can use this bike capably on urban roads from day to day, it will definitely feel more sprightly when you start to pick up speed in touring situations. Meanwhile its lightness will make sure that you remain energised mile after mile.
