Up & down — mountain passes and singletracks for beginners

Mountain Biking Collection by komoot

The mountain, the bike, and you. Pedaling up is often a physical and inner fight. From time to time you ask yourself: Why am I doing this?” while you sweat and enjoy the view with a smile. Latest once you reached the highest point, all struggle is forgotten and you enjoy your successful conquest of the elevation and all is left is the anticipation to the downhill part.

And the descent shouldn’t be just the same boring way you came up here, now it has to be an adventure on its own. So, get up to the passes and ridges and down the single-trail.

For starters, we have a little selection of S0 and S1 descents, that are perfect to start your downhill life, without bringing you to the edge of your capabilities. And you will see, once you mastered these, you will only want more.
