Scott Contessa 10 2011 Womens Mountain Bike

Scott Contessa 10 Women’s Mountain Bike

The Scott Contessa 10 2011 mountain bike is suitable for women who want a dependable bike on which they can enjoy competent performance across a variety of terrain without having to spend thousands of pounds. Whilst it is part of the affordable range of cycles from Scott, it is amongst the best of its kind, with a lightweight design, high quality components and female-specific geometry that make it a versatile option.

The frame is fashioned from light, strong alloy produced just for this range and the forks from RockShox have adjustable rebound and 100mm travel for comfort, resulting in a confident ride. The presence of hydraulic disc brakes from Shimano puts this ahead of cheaper alternatives which rely on mechanical controls and handling is one of the major focal points of this design.

It has become fairly easy to identify the top rung of Scott’s various ranges just by looking at the paint job. The Contessa 10 shows that it means business with its black and brown colour scheme, avoiding any overtly feminine touches in favour of something that is much more reserved. This may not be to all tastes but if you want to compete, then it will definitely look the part.
