The Scott Contessa 730 Womens Hardtail Mountain Bike is one of the more moderately priced in the Contessa range, but it still has a high level of features and components. The frame is constructed from a light alloy frame and incorporates Contessa Solution Geometry (see below). This stiff ride paired with an extremely dialled frame geometry produces an exceptionally fast and agile ride experience. The Contessa 730 comes equipped with a Suntour fork which features 100mm of premium suspension travel and remote lockout technology that allows you to optimize your ride control. Drive comes in the form of a Shimano 3x8 speed drivetrain which provides exceptional shift quality and further enhances the bikes low weight characteristics. Scott have selected Tektro SCH-F18 disc brakes for this model to offer powerful and progressive braking in all weather conditions. The Contessa 730 is designed around a wheel size of 27.5 inches, on this model they come in the form of Syncros rims complemented with a pair of Kenda Slant tires. The bike is stunningly finished with a host of premium Syncros components that will make any rider feel like they can go toe to toe with the world’s finest.

Contessa Range

For 25 years Scott have been designing bikes specifically for women, they call this range Contessa. The 2017 line-up is the strongest yet and features women’s specific geometries and components designed and tested by women for women. Scott worked with FOX to develop a suspension set up to cater for the different needs of a lighter rider and create a smoother rebound and a tailored ride. Several bikes in the range feature Contessa Solution Geometry to offer more comfort, stability and confidence. One of the main features of this is a bended top-tube which allows a lower stand-over height providing more versatility and convenience. Additionally, the top tube is shorter than the men’s models to offer a more upright and comfortable position.

About Scott

Founded in 1958 by Ed Scott, a talented engineer and competitive skier, the company launched the world’s first tapered aluminium ski pole to universal acclaim, setting a precedent of technical innovation that continues to this day. After moving through motocross the first mountain bike model was launched in 1986, whilst the 1989 Tour De France saw the debut of the aerodynamic handlebar that famously helped Greg Lemond to claim the yellow jersey from the late Laurent Fignon in the legendary final time trial on the cobbles of the Champs-Élysées.
The 1990’s saw Scott establish themselves firmly within the MTB market, with world cup winning forks, the world’s first carbon fibre mountain bike the Endorphin, and the worlds lightest full suspension MTB’s the G-Zero in 98 and Strike in 2000.
Today Scott offers a comprehensive and progressive range of bikes, with all models, from the entry level Aspect or Sportster to the high end Genius LT, Addict and women specific Contessa ranges featuring the most advanced construction techniques, components and materials available. Pioneers of Carbon Fibre in both road and mountain applications; the CR1 and IMP production techniques coupled with exclusive HMF and HMX carbon fibre grades allow for some of the lightest and strongest bikes on the market today, whilst innovative frame design and close links with leading component manufacturers such as DT Swiss ensure that all Scott bikes perform flawlessly at all levels.
