This is mountain bike legend cross-country legend Nino Schurter’s Scott Spark RC for 2022 and it is pretty hot. The nine-time world champion, who rides for the Scott-SRAM MTB Racing team, earned his most recent rainbow jersey in Val di Sole, Italy, in August and Scott Sports is celebrating with this beauty. Last week, Lars Forster received a new Scott Spark RC for 2022, now we have Nino’s.
Nino’s 2022 Spark RC references all of his past world titles from 2009, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and the most recent and unexpected, 2021.
Here is Nino Schurter’s Scott Spark RC for 2022.
Schurter’s Spark RC is equipped with a RockShox SID Ultimate RD3 Air fork with 120mm of travel. The hidden rear shock is a RockShox Nude 5 RLC3, again sporting 120mm of suspension travel. Schurter is using Scott’s TwinLoc 2 remote lockout system.
