Ten of the best women’s road bikes around £1000

Scott’s £999 Contessa Speedster 15 has one of the best specifications for the price, including a comprehensive selection of Shimano 105 components. This is the next range up from Tiagra, which means gear changes tend to be more precise and smooth, and the parts weigh less too. Look out for the internal cable routing, where the brake and gear cables run inside the frame ensuring a sleek finish to the frame. You’d have to look twice to check it’s a female specific bike; of course there’s women specific geometry, female specific bars, saddle and stem but there are no patronising pinks or girly swirls here. It’s cool black all the way with the Contessa Speedster. Price: £999 More information from Scott Sports
