Scott Speedster Road Bikes Review

The Speedster range represents the more affordable end of Scott’s road bike offerings, encompassing alloy-framed racers that are comfortable and hard-wearing, making them suitable for everyday use as well as special occasions.

Scott Speedster 60

The Speedster 60 comes with a butted 6061 alloy frame, utilising road geometry and an alloy fork to ensure that there is enough stiffness to make the bike feel fast, without also sacrificing comfort.

A Shimano and Truative drivetrain is featured on this model, with Tektro Comp SCBR brakes, Syncros Race 27 Aero Profile rims and Schwalbe Racepac tyres all fitting in well.

Scott Speedster FB50

The Speedster FB50 has an Aero, double butted alloy frame with an integrated headtube and an alloy fork. Shimano Claris drivetrain components are deployed, with a Syncros RR2.5 seatpost and RR3.0 saddle also included.

Scott Speedster 50

The aerodynamically oriented tubing of the Speedster 50 is designed to emulate the capabilities of bikes that are many times more expensive, leaving you with a fast and affordable way to get around on the road.

A 24 speed Shimano Claris drivetrain is featured, with aero rims and fast-rolling tyres adding to the durability and comfort of the bike.

Scott Speedster 40

Although the Speedster 40 still has an alloy frame, it is equipped with a hybrid carbon/alloy fork which is aerodynamic, compliant and pleasantly light.

The Shimano Sora drivetrain and Tektro SCBR-525 brakes are a step up, lessening the weight by a decent amount and providing smooth operation on a consistent basis.

Scott Speedster 30

The alloy frame and carbon/alloy fork of the Speedster 30 do not have the rounded tubing of other road bikes, but use an aerodynamically compliant design that can reduce drag by a fifth and reduce the amount of energy that you need to expend by five percent.

The Shimano Tiagra groupset makes up the drivetrain and bottom bracket, with the wheelset benefiting from the inclusion of Schwalbe Lugano tyres to complement the Syncros Race 27 Aero Profile rims. A durable KMC X10 chain is featured for all-day operation that will not break your stride.

Scott Speedster 20

Scott sticks with the alloy frame and carbon/alloy fork combo for the Speedster 20, with the main upgrade being the Shimano 105 components featured in the drivetrain. You get a Syncros RR2.0 handlebar, along with a R1.4 seatpost that fused carbon and alloy for additional lightness.

The Syncros and Schwalbe wheelset is consistent with that of the Speedster 30, but this bike’s weight advantage gives it the edge.

Scott Speedster 10

With a double butted alloy frame, aerodynamic design and its carbon/alloy fork, the Speedster 10 is an impressively affordable road racing machine.

Shimano Ultegra drivetrain components are a welcome sign of its quality, with BR-R516 brakes at the front and rear also on the table for this model.

The carbon/alloy seatpost from Sycnros is included, with Shimano WH RS11-A rims and spokes reducing the weight of the wheelset while still allowing the bike to roll quickly across the tarmac.
