Scott Aspect 30 V-Brake Version 2011 Mountain Bike

Scott Aspect 30 V Brake Version

The Scott Aspect 30 V-Brake is a poised, precise and perfectly priced mountain bike, which offers a lightweight design and handling, improved by the alloy frame. Whilst this lacks the disc brakes of its more expensive siblings, the Scott Comp V-Brakes are still entirely adequate to face up to the testing conditions that you are likely to face when sitting astride its red and white frame. If price is important but you do not want to sacrifice excessive amounts of functionality then the Scott Aspect 30 V Brake Version is something you should definitely consider.

Many of the components are from Scott’s own selection of technology, including the lightweight alloy frame, the saddle and the braking system. However, you still get gears supplied by Shimano, a front fork from Suntour with 100mm of travel and tyres from Schwalbe. The riding position and standover height mean that the Scott Aspect 30 V can tackle adverse terrain well and still be comfortable enough to ride on urban streets on a daily basis. This all-rounder outlook is certainly an advantage and whilst it will not be a raw racer like other Scott cycles it is not a shy, retiring item either.

The red and white colour scheme of the Scott Aspect 30 V is inoffensive, blending white and flashes of red with black branding. I am not overly enamoured with the styling as a whole, although this will likely be a minor matter when the package is considered on its various merits.
