S2, S3 or S4? The choice is yours!
Tours, dropping, uphill, downhill: all this – and the combination of all of this – is what makes freeriding fun. Every freerider has his or her favourite and can use the appropriate bike. The beauty of freeriding is that we can all decide for ourselves exactly what we mean by fun – and no one will think the worse of us for it.
Watch out, we’re going downhill fast!
Downhill is mainly an individual sport, but team spirit is also a big item – no bad thing, because rough off-road trails in the mountains, especially at high speed, require good technique with the bike at all times under full control. Muscle strength, knowledge of the route and a healthy dose of self-awareness are all part of the package.
Slaves to our passion
We do not believe in success at all costs – we are not interested in personal bests or pedal cadences. The idea is for leisure cyclists to get to know their bikes as they overcome hairpin bends or steep hills: the challenge lies within. Some might call us masochists, but only we know how sweetly the effort is rewarded!
…an amazing invention!
No, don’t laugh! Mountain bikes with electronic drives have their fans too, and they are by no means unathletic! E MTBers are equally at home on forest paths and trails and, with their wide tyres and suspensions, these bikes can overcome the same obstacles as conventional mountain bikes. So why not be happy – E-MTBers too can join any of our guided tours!
Touring or trekking
...for leisure cyclists
Mountain bikers and touring cyclists can take time to enjoy the landscape, whether on shorter, gentle trips in the surrounding area, or on demanding long-distance tours such as a Transalp crossing on the ancient Roman roads, an absolute dream tour for many cyclists. Interactive maps and GPS tracks make planning of stages relatively straightforward.
