Last season, Nino Schurter won his ninth rainbow jersey by becoming World Champion for the ninth time in his career. An achievement that SCOTT, the brand that has been with him since the beginning, wanted to commemorate with this spectacular new N1NO's Spark RC Special Edition.

N1NO's Spark RC Special Edition for 2022

It was at the 2009 MTB World Championships in Canberra, Australia, that a 23-year-old mountain biker named Nino Schurter climbed to the top of the podium after winning his first XCO World Champion title in the Elite category. No one could have imagined then that Schurter would be the standard bearer of a new generation in which competitive mountain biking would change forever.

The dark colour of the frame highlights the bright areas that change colour in sunlight.

In 2021 Nino Schurter won his last World Championship so far in Val di Sole, Italy, and with it he now has a total of 9 rainbows won in 2009, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2021.

And it is this World Championships collection that has inspired the designers who have created the new N1NO SCOTT Spark RC Special Edition on which Schurter will compete in 2022. For example the colour changing elements reflect the colours of the rainbow.

"Earning myself the Rainbows for the 9th time still feels like a dream. Picking my favorite one is impossible though, as each one holds many special memories. I'm really stoked that all of these titles found their way onto my new special edition Spark, so there is absolutely no need to choose a favorite at all."
