Difficulty grades of the single trails
Ideal help for correctly assessing your capabilities
A common classification system for mountain bike single trails across Tirol is designed to provide clear help to bikers to better assess their own capabilities and the kind of difficulties they could face on the trail. We will explain to you what the official difficulty grades are and what you need to watch out for when using the single trails!
Other evaluation criteria
The difficulty levels are regarded as consistent under standard conditions. Additional criteria should be considered in planning a trail day, however, to be completely sure.
checkTrail properties and ground: Gravel, boulders, grass etc.
checkWeather: Wet or dry (the weather of the past few days should also be considered!)
checkObstacles: Steps, terraces, stairs, roots, stones and rocks, etc.
checkGradient in percent: How steep is the terrain at certain points
checkTypes of curves: Radius, length, terrain, obstacles, elevated curves etc.
checkPersonal requirements: Fitness, experience, technique etc.
The small print
The division of the single trails into difficulty grades is very transparent due to standardised and unified criteria wherever possible. There may be slight deviations from this for different reasons and features. The levels provided do not give any information about the degree of danger the single trail represents to the biker. In addition, it cannot indicate the latest circumstances or danger points. Personal characteristics such as physical fitness, previous biking experience and the level of technical skill of a biker have a major impact on the enjoyment of the trails. It can be assumed that as the level of difficulty increases, the risk of injury and the risk of falling increases. It should be noted that biking on single trails in the Kitzbühel Alps is done entirely at your own responsibility, and liability is entirely excluded.
