The Contessa Strike eRIDE 920 is among the most affordable full-suspension e-mountain bikes in Scott's portfolio. Nevertheless, the developers remain true to their aesthetic design approach on this model as well. The complete chassis can also be locked from the handlebar.
Bosch is the major motor manufacturer in the EMTB world, alongside Shimano - and it's no surprise, as the Performance Line CX shows. No matter how steep or technical the climb is: the Bosch motor makes it conquerable! At the same time, the drive provides a very natural feeling while riding with a dynamic power delivery. The well-tuned driving modes hit the mark. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Contessa Strike eRIDE 920 with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Contessa Strike eRIDE 920 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (5000) .

The chassis unfortunately isn't great. Riders might lack comfort on rough terrain. The mid-range brakes from Shimano do their job but could be a bit firmer. The power of the four pistons setup is only average. The drivetrain and components have a subordinate but not to be neglected importance when it comes to EMTB. Even the bike brand product managers know this and don't aim too high with mostly average components. 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 will likely be a sticking point for trail riders, as it negatively affects handling.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Scott Contessa Strike eRIDE 920

The Contessa Strike eRIDE 920 isnt`t a specialist on the trail. Despite a poor chassis and a mediocre brake system, it remains a solid all-rounder with a wide range of use. With 5 years of guarantee, nothing can go wrong in the long run.
