What is the Spark RC Silverfish? Well, its official name is the '2020 SCOTT SPARK RC 900 WORLD CUP NINO EDITION – SILVERFISH'. It is based on Spark RC 900 World Cup frame, with the same HMX carbon frame, world-class geometry, and technology that has carried the likes of Nino Schurter, Kate Courtney and Jenny Rissveds to XC championships. But unlike special edition frames in the past, this just about goes into the fully-custom territory.
For starters, the frameset receives custom silver paint on the frame, swingarm, Fraser iC SL handlebar, and Syncros Duncan 1.0 seatpost. Silverfish also receives color-matched SRAM XX1 Eagle cranks, and custom-painted SRAM Level Ultimate brakes and calipers that really set this bike apart. Add in the SCOTT-specific RockShox NUDE rear shock and RockShox SID Ultimate fork that are paired to the Swiss company's TwinLoc suspension system. Total frame weight in size medium is 1849 grams with shock and hardware, making this one of the lightest full-suspension mountain bikes you can get anywhere.
