Scott Sportster 10 Solution 2011 Hybrid Bike

Scott Sportster 10 Solution Overview

The Scott Sportster 10 Solution is in the same category as many casual, sedate bikes, but it takes a very different route to win you over, offering as it does a racy set up that is focused towards speed and comfort over any terrain. Whilst it will be right at home if you just choose to use it for the daily commute or to pick up some shopping it is also capable enough for longer stints on the road for cycling tours or as an off road accompaniment for a mud-splashed weekend adventure.

The first sign that the Scott Sportster 10 Solution is not your typical hybrid comes in the form of the Suntour fork, which has suspension providing 63mm of travel. This is a good compromise, as it will provide comfort and shock absorption where necessary without limiting your ability to accelerate quickly. The next point of interest is the brake system which is part of the Avid Elixir range and provides you with 160mm discs on the front and rear wheels. This is superior to the calliper brakes found on most casual runarounds and means that this bike will be able to bring you to a halt safely, whatever the weather. The list of features is topped off with 27 gears which use Shimano components, indicating that this is an all-rounder at the top of its game.

In keeping with its rather special specifications, the look of the Scott Sportster 10 Solution is one of considered sophistication. Black, white and silver feature on the frame and fork and the black tyres match the black rims to give it a stylish finish.
