E-road bike Region Kitzbüheler Alpen
The Kitzbüheler Alpen with around 1,000 km of electric bicycle trails are likely the biggest e-bike region in the world. 310 e-bikes at 80 rental stations make for the required tailwind for an enjoyable alpine cycling experience. The lush, green meadows and wide valleys of the Kitzbüheler Alpen provide a wide field of activity even for more ambitious road cyclists.And because both go together perfectly, the tourism association together with the company Gruber Antrieb in Wörgl have initiated the e-road-bike region Hohe Salve. At the test centres in the region, e-road bikes of the vivax assist brand are available for rent. Balanced trainingIf leisurely cycling is the main focus of e-biking, riding an e-road-bike adds an athletic aspect as well. But for the ambitious cyclist, it's not necessarily all about exerting yourself. Quite to the contrary: With proper awareness, athletes will find their ideal pulse rate when e-road biking and thus optimize their training. For example, the e-road bike by vivax assist relieves the rider of much of the strenuous pedaling on steep climbs just by pushing a button. When having the electric support switched on, the following applies: It gets more powerful the less you pedal yourself and vice versa. The authentic riding experience remains. If the motor is not engaged, the bike runs without resistance as is usual. This allows balanced cycling training without overexerting yourself. The additional electro motor has proven to be especially helpful for seniors, whose calves may no longer be quite as strong or for sportive couples who want to go on bike tours together despite having different levels of performance.
