Scott Contessa Genius 2011 Womens Mountain Bike

Scott Contessa Genius Women’s Mountain Bike

The Scott Contessa Genius 2011 women’s mountain bike manages to be chunky in both the frame and tyres but still much lighter than the competition thanks to strong carbon technology. This type of advanced tech ups the price but it will be one that is worth paying for serious riders.

Because this is a high-end bike you can access many different types of on the fly adjustments for precision riding. The TwinLoc technology allows you to switch between three different settings that determine the amount of travel allowed by the shocks, which means there is no need for mechanical interference in between stages. The advanced two way release system and rapid changes of the Shimano gears will help you put down some power, adding to the overall traction of the bike in the process.

Whilst some of Scott’s offerings do not necessarily showcase their capabilities in the design, this is not the case with the Contessa Genius. You can instantly tell that this is a bike that needs to be used competitively, its thick white frame and bulging Schwalbe tyres yearning for steep climbs and downhill sprints.
