Degrees of difficulty e-MTB
e-MTBs are for everyone, but not everyone is made for e-MTB!
- The distinction between MTB route and e-MTB route is essentially that you do not have to lift your bike. However, it may be that that a tree or a landslide can obstruct the route, and where others pass a particular situation by pushing the e-MTB you are forced to lift it. You are never immune from having to lift the weight of your bike or push it uphill!
- Do not underestimate the routes and overestimate your technical and physical abilities!
- Dress accordingly and always wear a helmet and gloves. You should always carry a puncture repair kit with you, in addition to food and drink.
- Plan routes, alternatives and recharging well in advance as pushing a discharged bike can become a nightmare.
- Do I have to follow the official signposting, print and/or download the map and GPX data? We recommend everyone downloads the free SwitzerlandMobility app.
- Set off with a fully-charged battery and always charge the battery at the charging stations!
- Carrying your own cable can come in handy in an emergency.
