Having a lightweight bicycle isn’t everything, but it sure does feel good. And when your bike is a light as the 2019 SCOTT Contessa Scale RC 900, you can be sure to feel good on the trail. Not only is the bike as race ready as it gets, but its equally ready for your favorite backcountry trails any time, anywhere.
Every 2019 SCOTT Contessa Scale RC starts life with Scott’s HMX carbon, optimized for 1x drivetrains. This carbon frame offers similar stiffness and durability to the top-grade HMX-SL carbon, but weighs slightly more. However, at 969g for a size M with hardware, this still makes the Scale RC WC one of the lightest frames you can find. This 1x-only frame also uses SCOTT’s proprietary EvoLap Technology, the frame is completely optimized for stiffness where it counts and compliance everywhere else. A weight of just 21.1 lbs for a size medium is the icing on the cake
The 2019 SCOTT Contessa Scale RC 900 is differentiated by its women’s-specific approach, with women’s specific (read: lighter-weight) shock tuning, and unique handlebars, stem, grips and saddle. This model features an HMX carbon frame, SRAM X01 Eagle 1×12 drivetrain, Shimano Deore XT brakes, a Syncros Silverton 2.0 wheelset with DT Swiss internals, and Syncros carbon finishing kit. RockShox offer their Olympic Gold-winning 100mm Rock Shox SID RLC fork. The 2018 Scott Contessa Spark RC 900 is available in three sizes (S-L).
