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 – Castle of Juval – Naturno

This tour brings us to the summer residence of mountaineering legend Reinhold Messner. We take the cycle path towards Val Venosta and just before the snack bar "Radbar" we turn right and cross the bridge. We turn right again, cross the main road and take the narrow street towards Juval. A short but steep uphill ride lies ahead of us, which leads us through the wonderful vineyards of the "Unterortl" farm. Arrived at the Castle Juval, which has belonged to Reinhold Messner since 1983, we can visit one of his six museum. These are dedicated to the mountains and Messner's expeditions around the world. In July and August you might be able to encounter Messner himself in his castle. Furthermore, there is a small zoo near the castle and the restaurant "Schlosswirt", which offers locally produced specialties. We return to Naturno the same way we came.
