Driving technique (S0 - S5)

The rating of the driving technique is based on the values ​​of singletrail-skala.de.

S0 = S0 describes a single trail that has no special difficulties. These are mostly liquid forest and meadow paths on grippy natural soils or gravel solidified. Stages, rock or root sections are not expected. The slope of the path is light to moderate, the curves are extensive.
S1 = a S1 described way you have to even minor obstacles such as shallow roots and small stones to expect. Very often the odd gulley erosion damage and cause of the increased difficulty of the ground can not be partially solidified. The gradient is a maximum of 40%. Hairpin bends are not expected.
S2 = expect the S grade S2 have to with larger roots and stones. The soil is often not solidified. Steps and shallow steps are expected. Often sharp bends occur, the slope is passages, up to 70%.
S3 = Splinted single trails with many large rocks and / or root sections belonging to the S-level S3. High levels switchbacks and brain-lateral gradients often occur, relaxed roll sections are rare. Frequently is also expected to slippery surfaces and loose rocks, slopes above 70% are not uncommon.
S4 = S 4 describes very steep and strong interlocked single trails with large boulders and / or demanding root passages therebetween often loose debris. Extreme steep ramps, narrow switchbacks and steps in which the chainring touches inevitably come in 4th grade common.

Course: Naturno – Morter – uphill Morterer Leger – farm Haslhof – trail Holy Hansen – Covelano– Naturno

Want to get to know one of the most beautiful trail in Val Venosta? Then follow us on this tour. From the town center of Naturno, we take Via Stazione / Bahnhofstraße which leads us to a bridge, the starting point of the cycle path on the Lungoadige / Etschdamm. We turn right and take the cycle path towards Stava. We follow the cycle path  through the villages Castelbello, Laces and finally Coldrano, where we ride in direction of "Val Martello" until Morter. At the firefighter building we turn right to get to a forest road that brings us uphill to the "Morterer Leger". The road is very steep but guarantees shadow, even on hot summer days. The first part of the road is mostly on white marble, the second part we ride over grass. After 9 kilometers and 1000 meters of elevation gain, we arrive at our first destination. The breathtaking view on the surrounding mountains let us almost forget about the physical strains we had to face. After a short break we take a connecting route to the farm "Haslhof", where we will finally get rewarded. The "The Holy Hansen", one of the most famous trails in Val Venosta is right in front of us. The trail was built especialy for biker and is constructed very flowy (S0- S1)and only some parts in the middle sectore are technicaly more demanding (S2). But the trail is divided in eight parts and the difficulty of each part is always signed, so everyone can decide whether to ride the next section or not. The trail leads us all the way down to Covelano, where we take the cycle path and return to Naturno.
