The Scott Contessa Genius has features that are designed specifically for women for better control and ergonomics. The Contessa Genius 700 is equipped with 27.5″ wheels and 150mm of travel in both the front and rear. This allows the rider to be more comfortable on the trails, especially when they become steep and rocky. The Contessa Genius is built on the same frame platform as the men’s bike with changes only made to the components in order to guarantee a comfortable fit.
The shorter stem and narrower handlebars enable safe handling and confidence on tight turns, while a smaller diameter grip offers a more comfortable position for your hands. Scott put the Syncros XR1.0 women saddle that is specifically designed for high performance MTB use, giving you a wider sitting surface and plush padding for rough terrain.
