The CONTESSA LUMEN eRIDE 900 represents the spearhead of the current technical development. The frame is not only particularly light, but also has integrated dampers in the seat tube. The cable routing through the headset makes the look particularly elegant. And of course Scott thinks about the ladies´needs with the Contessa version.
The harmonious power delivery is a clear character of the HPR 50. With 50 Nm torque, the support on the hill is rather moderate. The very natural motor control of the HPR 50 shapes the riding feel of the CONTESSA LUMEN eRIDE 900. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the CONTESSA LUMEN eRIDE 900 , because of its low range. The battery is securely attached to the down tube and cannot be removed for charging or storage.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the CONTESSA LUMEN eRIDE 900 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (7000) .

In the about 7000€ price range, most manufacturers use aluminium as the frame material. With a carbon frame, Scott turns the weight screw and sets itself apart from the competitors. Solid endurance qualities are shown by the chassis of medium quality. At the brakes, Scott middle class four pistons brakes with small 18 brake rotors by Shimano are used. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. When it comes to the geometry, Scott does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability. The low bottom bracket height is a party pooper for the handling on the trail. On other bikes, you are more centrally located behind the handlebar. The weight of a bike is a key factor for the fun of riding. With 17,6 kg, the CONTESSA LUMEN eRIDE 900 is one of the lightest Trailbikes on the market. This turns the bike into a real joyride on the trail. The low weight combined with the pleasant geometry ensures a very natural and agile handling. With very few other EMTBs, you forget so quickly that you are moving a bike with a motor, as with the CONTESSA LUMEN eRIDE 900.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Scott CONTESSA LUMEN eRIDE 900

Overall, an excellent handling speak a clear language. The CONTESSA LUMEN eRIDE 900 is a good bike with a high fun factor for downhill rides. Only a middle ground chassis and a mediocre brake system mar the overall picture. Praise-worthy: 5 years of Warranty on the Frame!
