Scott Contessa 60 2011 Women's Mountain Bike

The Scott Contessa 60 is a women’s mountain bike that is close to the base of the range, offering a very affordable way for people who are thinking about getting a little more involved in cycling to start. As well as being inexpensive it is light, agile and built with components from top firms so that you can trust its performance in any number of circumstances.

Scott Contessa 60 2011 Overview

Scott has manipulated lightweight alloy into a frame for the Contessa 60 which is suited to female riders and also tough enough to deal with off road conditions. The front fork from Suntour features a shock with a soft spring that can afford the rider 80mm of travel, but at this price point you cannot expect to see a full suspension set up for complete shock absorption. What you do get are Shimano gears and other components which Scott has picked from its own shelves in order to complete the bike to a standard that is competitive without being unaffordable.

Whilst the geometry of the Scott Contessa 60 is definitely suited for females it does not have any kind of overly patronising touches, which can act as glaring indicators that a mountain bike is deigned for women. The blue and white frame is tastefully styled and the touches of gold are small and unobtrusive, which will appeal to those who do not want to worry much about the impression that is given by the aesthetic properties of their bikes. This is also a bonus because the bike will be just at home on urban roads as on dirt tracks so a neutral, unobtrusive design is desirable.
