SCOTT ANNOUNCES ALL-NEW SPARK RC X FLIGHT ATTENDANT

(SCOTT PRESS RELEASE)

The iconic SCOTT Spark RC is mountain-biking’s most successful XC platform to date. The infamous race bike is ridden by Nino Schurter and the whole SCOTT-SRAM MTB Racing Team, and carries countless wins and records. And today, the best is about to get even better.

The fastest bike in XC racing history is now available with the all-new RockShox Flight Attendant suspension system. Developed in close cooperation with the Greatest Of All Time Nino Schurter, the new Spark RC X Flight Attendant is undoubtedly a game-changer.

The SCOTT Spark RC x Flight Attendant collection introduces two new models: the SCOTT Spark RC World Cup EVO and SCOTT Spark RC World Cup, that will be equipped with the all-new RockShox Flight Attendant suspension system, and available from Fall 2024.

Discover how Nino was involved in the development, and find out more about the new bike models below.

N1NO x RockShox Flight Attendant Suspension System
It’s no secret that the Greatest Of All Time, Nino Schurter, has been racing the RockShox Flight Attendant suspension system for quite some time. The game-changing new suspension system from RockShox was released at the Untamed Cape Epic in March 2024 in South Africa, where Nino raced with it and finished 2nd. However it was at 2023 Lenzerheide World Cup that Nino first raced with Flight Attendant. That’s right… the very same race where he broke the record for overall World Cup wins with his 34th win. And the very same season where he went on to win his 35th World Cup and 9th World Cup Overall Title.

What is less well-known, is that Nino Schurter was involved in the development of Flight Attendant from early on and, in early 2023, was the very first athlete to test the system. His feedback and input has been integral to the development of the innovative product that is presented today. Take a look behind the scenes of mountain biking history being made: one of the greatest ever suspension products, developed with the greatest of all time. A once in a generation story!
