Scott Contessa Speedster 15 Compact 2011 Womens Road Bike

Scott Contessa Speedster 15 Compact Overview

This bike is for those who do not want to take any prisoners during road races, providing a combination of excellent components and a competitive set up that will let female enthusiasts blast past their rivals and on to victory. It manages to back up the pomp of its posture and its price with a long list of impressive specifications. This puts it in a good position to appeal to cyclists who are just starting to take this type of cycling seriously.

Whilst the main frame of the Contessa Speedster 15 Compact is constructed from alloy, the fork that Scott has made specifically for this range is constructed from a combination of alloy and the lighter carbon material commonly found on more expensive bikes. This allows its weight to be kept down below comparable rivals and will surely promote speed on straights and downhill sections. The whole bike is further aided by the frame geometry which is specialised for female riders and should provide comfort as well as performance.

This compact version of the Speedster 15 shares the same white and blue colour scheme of its siblings and whilst it will not win praise for its styling, it is unfussy enough to let you get on with the task of winning. Scott has put a lot of its own components into this bike but you can still find big name contributors such as Shimano on the list of specs, which should inspire confidence in long time cycling fans.
