Too often, women’s specific bikes are saddled with less-than perfect parts spec, compromised geometry, or polarizing paint schemes. The fact of the matter is that a bike that shreds is a bike that works for many people, regardless of gender. SCOTT realizes this, and as such the 2020 SCOTT Contessa Addict 35 Disc endurance road bike is one that just plain works, with women’s-specific touch points to ensure excellent comfort and performance over a long ride.
Every SCOTT Addict is based around a lightweight carbon frame; here, it’s the HMF carbon found on most of the Addict RC road bike line, as well as a vast majority of SCOTT carbon bikes. HMF carbon is light, stiff, and designed for durability. What separates the Addict is that while the Addict RC is built with seven different pieces of carbon, the Addict is built with just three. This level of savings means that SCOTT can offer the same carbon for cheaper, with a low weight of under 1000g for a frame.
SCOTT designed the Addict frame from the ground up with long-distance comfort in mind. Starting with more upright positioning, the Addict also adds room for up to a 28c tire, design for greater small bump smoothness, and calmed-down handling.
The 2020 SCOTT Contessa Addict 35 road bike is based around an HMF carbon frame and fork, a Shimano Tiagra 10-speed drivetrain, and Syncros Race 24 wheels. 700 x 28c Schwalbe tires and Syncros carbon and alloy components complete the build. The Contessa Addict is available in five sizes (XXS/47 – L/56 cm).
