Your one stop, do-it-all bike can come in many forms. Many see it as a little more than a rigid mountain bike, others see it as a city bike kitted with a full assortment of lights, racks, and baskets. For those looking to keep up the pace both on the road and off the beaten path, the 2020 SCOTT Contessa Speedster Gravel 25 gravel bike answers the call.
The gravel bike sector is still relatively new, but there is a growing split between pace and overall capability. The Speedster errs toward the former. Its lightweight alloy frame is tuned for speed; the downtube and chainstays are plenty beefy, which means it accelerates and maintains speed really well.
Geometry is not dissimilar to the Addict endurance bike, with a similar amount of verve when standing up to pedal, as well as a calmness while cornering. Its not the smoothest bike around, but the wide 35c tire equipped takes much of the edge off bumps. A full carbon fork, quality components, and low weight mean the Speedster Gravel is an excellent bike out of the box, but also a choice platform to use for years to come.
The 2020 SCOTT Contessa Speedster Gravel 25 features an alloy frame and full carbon fork, and pairs it to a Shimano GRX drivetrain. Syncros Race 24 wheels, Schwalbe G-One Allround 700 x 35c tires, and women’s specific Syncros handlebar and saddle round out the build. The Speedster Gravel is available in five sizes (XXS/47 – L/56 cm).
