Scott Contessa 50 Women's Mountain Bike

The Scott Contessa 50 is a low cost, high performance mountain bike for women that benefits from being built by a firm that really knows how to pack value into packages across different price ranges. It may be built for those on a budget but it still looks the part and manages to put its money where its mouth is with versatile, consistent performance that is ideal for people who like to get their kicks at the weekend.

As you might have guessed, the frame geometry is fashioned to be ideal for women and the alloy construction means that this is a very light, agile bike that can be pushed hard and fast without crumbling under the pressure. Suntour XCM forks help dampen the disruptive vibrations of rough terrain and gear components from Shimano let you see what Scott can do with a variety of different products from different manufacturers. You do not get disc brakes at this price point but the Scott Comp V-Brakes are still perfectly capable of delivering the required stopping power.

You can choose between two different coloured designs when you pick up a Scott Contessa 50 2011. A subtle lime green is suitably arresting and there is a white option which features red detailing. These are not as loud or over the top as some of Scott’s other cycles but they are by no means boring, so there should be something to attract most people.
