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: With the bike shuttle to Montefranco – uphill Marzoner Alm – Bike Highline Merano – Fontana trail

We take the bike shuttle service to the small mountain village Montefranco. Where we start riding towards the "Marzoner Alm" hut, one of the lowest huts of southtyrol. Alternatively we can also ride the steep road from Castelbello to the "Marzoner Alm" hut on our own (1070m elevetion gain).From the "Marzoner Alm" we take the Bike Highline Merano and follow the trails to reach the start of the "Lupotrail" (Nr. 4). On the "Lupotrail" we cross the forest road two times and the first time we get to an asphalted street we leave the trail to proceed on the asphalted street until the next hairpin bend, where we take the trail nr.9 (Fontanatrail), which brings us to the farm "Niedermair". By following the technically demanding "Fontanatrail", with a lot of rocky and blocked but also flowy sections, we reach the bottom of the valley at Ciardes, where we take the cycle path to return to Naturno.
