Balancing comfort with efficiency, the Scott Contessa Speedster 25 Womens Road Bike has been designed as a great all-rounder, equally as at home on an all-day epic as it is on a busy urban commute. The women's specific Endurance geometry provides a high headtube, improving comfort whilst allowing full visibility of the road ahead, critical for staying safe in busier environments. The top tube length and standover height have also been addressed to ensure comfort and efficiency when riding, as well as simple mounting and dismounting at the coffee stop.
The frame is made from D.Butted 6061 aluminium to ensure its high durability all year round, while the full carbon fibre fork helps keep weight to a minimum and dampens any unwanted road feedback before it is transferred to the rider's wrists. Comfort is further increased through the Syncros FL2.5 Women's specific saddle, its shape has been tailored to women to ensure there is no numbness or pressure during longer rides.
The Sora 9-speed groupset provides the reliable, crisp shifting expected from a Shimano product, while its 50-34T chainrings and 11-32T cassette provide enough range for fast flat efforts and long drawn out climbs alike. The remainder of the bike's specification is made up of Synchros components, providing high levels of performance and exact colour-coding, they are the icing on the cake.
In summary, the Contessa Speedster 25 is an ideal choice for any female wishing to enter the world of road cycling aboard a bike that will not need replacing, no matter how deeply they fall in love with the sport in the future.
