Scott Sportster 55 2011 Women's Hybrid Bike

The Scott Sportster 55 is an affordable hybrid bike designed for female riders. As you would hope from a bike of this type it provides a great deal of comfort so that whatever task you tackle, it is never a bruising experience. However, this does not mean that it is a difficult to handle machine that compromises performance for a more cushioned ride. The opposite is true, as the set up is just as adept at providing a sporty experience thanks to its rigid alloy frame and Suntour front fork.

Scott Sportster 55 Overview

To complement the light frame and fork, which has 63mm of travel, there are brakes from Shimano. These are mechanically operated disc brakes that will give you superior stopping power and control when compared to the standard calliper brakes you would expect to find on other bikes of this price bracket. The bike follows a similar ethos of impressive ability for a low price, with semi-slick tyres operating very well in all weather conditions and 24 gears giving you lots of flexibility when the road ahead becomes steep.

The design of the Scott Sportster 55 is simple yet elegant. It is predominantly black on the frame and features subtle flashes of white and gold to give it a bit of personality. There is no over the top branding or showy decals so you will be able to enjoy its features without shouting your passion for cycling to the whole world.
