This Scott Contessa Scale RC 700 2017 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.

Scott's Scale has set the standard for cross country hardtails for over a decade. Renowned for their low weight, excellent lateral stiffness and vertical compliance, Scales offer everything you could want from a cross country hardtail. The new Scale frame has been developed with the help of multiple World Champion Nino Schurter and already has World Cup wins to its name. RC versions use the higher grade of HMX carbon composite and are designed specifically for 1x11 drivetrains. With SDS2 shock damping technology, Boost hub spacing, new race inspired geometry and the latest carbon fibre layup technologies the Scott Scale retains its place as the very best cross country hardtail available today.

The Scott Contessa Scale RC 700 features 27.5" wheels which are lighter and easier to accelerate than the larger 29" wheel option. 27.5" wheel's low inertia also means they are highly manoeuvrable and perfect for riders wanting a lively ride. 27.5" wheels also allow for a lower standover and handlebar height which can suit shorter riders.

If you're looking for a race ready Women's specific hardtail which has been designed to be the fastest hardtail around then the Scott Contessa Scale RC 700 is hard to overlook.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle requires a suspension pump to set and tune its suspension correctly. This is not included as standard. A suspension pump can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.

Sizing information is provided as a general guide only. This is based on the average rider riding the bicycle in the style for which it is intended. This takes no account of a rider's personal proportions, physique, flexibility and biomechanics. If your height places you on, or near, a bicycle size step then we recommend you consider both sizes. All bicyles offer a range of handlebar and saddle adjustment which will enable you to fine tune your riding position once the correct size has been established. If you are unsure on sizing, we strongly recommend you visit our store so we can assist you. Pedal On offers advice and information on sizing in good faith, the final decision and resposibility on which size to purchase is your's.
