The Scott Contessa JR 24 Inch is for young female cyclists who are looking to continue their passion for riding as they grow. They will gain a good deal of experience from using a model that is essentially a smaller version of the type of bikes that competitive adults would choose. It has a frame that is suitable for girls and a host of excellent components that all pull in the same direction to provide a unified riding experience. Because of its price, this is not a bike designed for occasional pottering around town but a dedicated off road racing machine, so the intended recipient needs a determined focus to justify a purchase.

Scott Contessa 24 Inch 2011 Overview

To stay in line with the type of technology found on adult bikes the Scott Contessa JR 24 Inch has an alloy frame that is light enough to avoid weighing the rider down and also strong enough to stand up to the wear and tear of regular use. This is combined with an RTS Capa T24 front fork, which will provide more cushioning throughout any type of ride. The 50mm of travel is capable of softening blows without compromising when the rider wants to put down some power.

As this is a bike for girls you will see feminine details in its design, such as the butterfly motif that features on many models in the Contessa JR range. However, the fact that this is finished in blue and white belies its gender origins and will not distract from its main purpose which is to develop riders, allowing them to hone their skills with confidence.
