The 2021 SCOTT Active 50 is not the bike for everyone. It’s the bike for people who want to ride without pressure or pretense. Maybe it is for everyone, after all.
Ride a bike for the joy of riding a bike, for the health benefits and for the environment. Whatever your reason or goal, the 2021 SCOTT Contessa Active 50 is a budget friendly, quality conscious transportation and recreation ride to help you be, as the name suggests, more active.
The SCOTT Contessa Active 50 is a women’s specific sport bike with a hardtail mountain bike look and function while still being a fully capable urban commuter or neighborhood parkway cruiser.
As a women’s specific bike, SCOTT didn’t simply downsize the frame and add a lowered top tube. Special attention was given to components, geometry and other details that make the Active 50 what it is. The handlebars are more narrow to better fit the typically small shoulder width of women. The stem is shorter to reflect the more compact reach. SCOTT’s saddle is designed and built differently than a men’s saddle to enhance comfort and fit. Even crank lengths are adjusted to account for leg and hip physiology.
Aside from those details, the SCOTT Contessa Active 50 is simply a quality bike at a great price. A sturdy but lightweight aluminum alloy frame and 100mm travel Suntour fork provide a great base of operations for your ride. The fork provides a fair amount of suspension for rocky trails or when you encounter a pothole on a flatter paved ride.
Dependable Shimano components in the drivetrain and hydraulic disc brake are responsive to each pedal stroke to help create efficient movement.
A set of Kenda Booster tires on Syncros wheels provide puncture-resistant traction and responsive bike handling to keep you going smoothly on dirt or pavement.
