This Scott Contessa Scale RC 900 2018 is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.
Scott Contessa Scale RC 900 is an XC superbike featuring an HMX carbon fibre frame and a 1x specific design as upgrades over the standard Scale range.
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 latest Scale frame has been developed with the help of multiple World, and Olympic Champion Nino Schurter and has several World Cup wins to its name. The 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, modern 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. As with all Contessa models, contact points have been specifically selected to better suit the female form.
The Scott Contessa Scale RC 900 Pro features 29" wheels with excellent roll-over characteristics. The big wheels are great for rolling over nasty roots and rocky sections, essentially making it easier to ride these conditions. Improved traction is also a key factor with the increased wheel diameter compared to smaller wheels as tyre contact to the ground is larger.
The Scott Contessa Scale RC 900 Pro features a SRAM X01/GX Eagle 12speed drivetrain with a singlering 32Tooth chainset and a 10-50 tooth rear cassette for a huge gearing range whilst maintaining the simplicity and low weight of a 1x system. Braking is provided by SRAM's highly regarded Level TL hydraulic disc brakes which offer excellent stopping power in all conditions. Rock Shox's SID RL Air fork provides 100mm of controlled travel which is enhanced by a remote lock out.
If you're looking for a race ready hardtail which has been proven to be the fastest hardtail available then the Scott Contessa Scale RC 900 Pro is hard to beat.
