RECOMMENDATIONS FOR BEGINNERS
The ideal tire pressure represents a significant influence regarding comfort, traction and risks of accidents: As less as possible, as much as necessary.
The modern high-quality tires are loosing performance at a pressure of 2 bar and onwards. Generally the range varies between 1,4 and 2 bar. Exception: Bikers with a weight of more than 90 kg. At the fronttire about 0,2 Bar less than the backtire.
Rather short and not too steep routes. Good road surface; no special danger zones; family-friendly; requires basic knowledge of driving technique.
Medium-length routes with some steeper sections. Road conditions require mountain bike equipment; with unclear, winding sections; requires advanced knowledge of driving technique; includes exposed, unsecured sections.
Long and/or steep routes or routes with such sections. Route characteristics even more difficult and dangerous than on routes of medium difficulty; mountain bike equipment and driving technique is obligatory; anticipatory driving adapted to the situation is required.
