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.
