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.

The "Eisjöchl" is one of the most famous tour in the alps. It is both technically and physically demanding but for sure a life goal for a lot of mountainbiker. The excursion often is done in two stages. Our tour starts from the center of Naturno. From the center we turn towards Val Venosta. After about 2 km we turn left on the state road towards Val Venosta. After a hundred meters we turn right on the Val Senales road. We cross the illuminated tunnels and continue along the road that leads us uphill for approx. 10 km, where the steep street into the val di Fosse starts and leads us to the farm and restaurant "Vorderkaser". From now on we proceed on the forest road into the heart of the famous val di Fosse. We ride past the "Rableid" hut and arrive at the "Eishof" hut (2071m). After a break or an overnight stay at the "Eishof hut" our ride leads us to an old military road (mid - steep) that will bring us up to the "Eisjöchl" (2895m). Shortly after the alpine pass we arrive at the "Petrarca" hut (2875m). The downhill to Plan is technically demanding, with a lot of hairpin bends full of gravel. The technical part ends at the "Lazins" hut, where we proceed on the forest road down to Plan. From Plan we take the aspalted street to get to San Leonardo in Passiria (signposted), where we take the cycle path to Merano (signposted, we recommend a visit). After a visit around Merano we retake the cycle path that leads us through Lagundo, Tel, Rablá, Plaus and finally Naturno.
