Scott Contessa Scale RC 2011 Womens Mountain Bike

Scott Contessa Scale RC Overview

With its carbon frame, the Scott Contessa Scale RC is a giant leap above most of its alloy-framed alternatives, offering a very lightweight build that nonetheless integrates high-end racing components. The design will help to improve performance for those women who really want to indulge their competitive streak. Its not a colour scheme that will appeal to everyone but after half an hour on the trail, it’ll be covered in dirt anyway. This kind of functionality comes at a price, but bikers who do not want to settle for second place will probably be willing to make the necessary investment.

The carbon frame is accompanied by a number of other carbon components, including the brakes, which allow for the overall weight of the Scott Contessa Scale RC to sit at a shade under ten kilograms. Lightness is nothing if not combined with strength and agility, which are both thankfully present in this bike. The RockShox fork will help you to glide rather than bounce over tricky surfaces and the tubeless tyres from Schwalbe’s Rocket Ron range will be faithful throughout competitions over several stages.
