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 tours in the Alps. It is both technically and physically demanding, but for sure a life goal for many mountainbikers. The excursion is often done as a two-day tour. Our tour starts in the center of Naturno. From there, we ride towards Val Venosta. After about 2 km we turn left onto the state road towards Val Venosta. About a hundred meters further, we turn right onto the road to Val Senales. We pass through the illuminated tunnels and continue along the road that leads us uphill for approx. 10 km. We turn onto the steep street leading into the Val di Fosse and continue until we reach the mountain restaurant "Vorderkaser". From there, we proceed on the forest road (no. 24) 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 continues on an old military road (mid - steep) that leads us up to the "Eisjöchl" (2895m). Immediately behind the alpine pass, we arrive at the "Petrarca" hut (2875m). The downhill to Plan is a precipitously steep gravel road with a lot of hairpin bends, thus technically demanding. The technical part ends at the "Lazins" hut, where we proceed on the forest road to Plan. From Plan we take the asphalt road to get to San Leonardo in Passiria (signposted). There we take the cycle path to Merano (signposted) A stop in the picturesque spa town Meran is recommended. From Merano we return to the cycle path that leads us through Lagundo, Tel, Rablá, Plaus and finally back to Naturno.
