- It'd be interesting to see the results of Whip Off Worlds if riders had to compete with their seats at full extension.

So much style, especially impressive with his saddle that high!

Does he not like dropper posts? My favorite high seat post memory was coming down a hill from school on the commuter bike with a heavy backpack on, and generally on most bikes I can hop pretty high, but missed the timing up a curb, and crashed bad going fast. Dropper posts are a great idea.

: XC riders don't use dropper posts because they are too heavy compared to the seat posts they use and they're pretty keen on saving every possible gram

: yet many are using them now, but not Schurter.

: With some of those rock gardens these XC bikes go through, I don't know how they don't all use a dropper. It seems like it would not only improve their time through those sections but also be a lot safer. But hey, if you can whip like that with the post up, then I guess you don't need a dropper.

: Thats the world champ xc rider...no dropper needed!
(Jul 28, 2016 at 18:17)
: Thats why there not wearing the WC band.

Thanks to strong personalities like Nino in XC, Peatty in DH and Sagan in road I love every aspect of cycling.

hell yeah Nino !!!! such a pic shouldn't be placed in the 'XC riding" category

He must be taking lessons from Minnaar on his whips. I was surprised to see it was Schurter after clicking on the thumbnail as their style is very similar.

i hope Minnaar don't see this comment haha

This is rad! Whipin' with seat extended. Schurter can rip it and whip it.

Pretty impressive, considering he appears to be clipped in
(Jul 28, 2016 at 16:16)
Nino Schurter is most definitely clipped in.

Awesome, I'm Enduro but I respect a lot the XC Riders. Specially if they has style apart of to be stronger.
(Jul 28, 2016 at 18:18)
Schurter will smoke most of the enduro's out there
