Scott Sportster 10

Scott Sportster 10 Overview

The Scott Sportster 10 is a sporty, swift hybrid bike designed for people whose lives are always in motion. Whilst forward momentum is its forte it wants to make sure that any journey you take is as comfortable and safe as possible. Therefore, you have full disc brakes and suspension on the front fork. These features mean that it will perform well both on the road and in less civilized settings, exemplifying its attempt to be as flexible and user-friendly as possible.

The alloy frame of the Scott Sportster 10 is typical of this range and indeed of this manufacturer. This means you can rely on it to be light, strong and above all, durable, which is important when you are thinking of spending the kind of money it will cost to buy this particular bike. The front fork from Suntour gives you 63mm of travel, which is not quite up there with dedicated mountain bikes but it is not required to be anyway. This gives you a good balance between impact-cushioning and off the line acceleration, which is just what you want in a hybrid bike that will be used predominantly in urban environments.

The Scott Sportster 10 looks worthy of its price tag, with the 160mm rotor disc brakes clearly visible and bold branding emblazoned on the frame. The black and white finish is not too showy and adds a touch of class. The build quality is definitely reassuring and you will be happy to give the bike a bit of punishment without fearing for its integrity.
