Scott Sportster 40 2011 Hybrid Bike

The Scott Sportster 40 is an expertly designed hybrid bike, which comes into the market at an attractive price point and gives you a diverse array of components and features. This allows it to take on various surfaces in various situations without feeling like you are facing an uphill struggle. It is comfortable, compact and convenient for use in urban environments but it will be just as happy taking the less travelled paths off-road or being used as a long distance touring bike.

Scott Sportster 40 2011 Overview

Scott gives the Sportster 40 an alloy frame, which is typical of this range, ensuring that you will have a stable, strong base around which the rest of the bike is built. The alloy construction also means that this is not a weighty bike, which not only makes it easier to transport but also lets your legs put all your energy into forward momentum rather than sapping your strength as you lug the bike along for the ride. Shimano gears, a Suntour fork and capable components straight from Scott’s own workshop all come together to round off the package nicely.

The white and black design of the Scott Sportster 40 is just what you would wish to see from this type of hybrid bike. It is stylish enough to impress those who are interested but not so over the top that it will blind passers-by. Scott’s branding is seen as a seal of quality by many and there is no reason to doubt that this is the case here.
