Adventurous rides, panoramic tours or skills training - the variety of biking opportunities in the Flims Laax Falera regain awaits you. Our highly motivated guides will share their insider tips with you and show you the most beautiful aspects of mountain biking the region has to offer.

 

  School System Bike

Bike Equipment

  • all course participants have to bring / organize the mountain bike themselves
Minis
  • regular bike (without training wheels/not a running bike) with handbrakes and gear shift (of advantage)
  • helmet and gloves

Blue 1 / Blue 2
  • the following applies to beginners: the less suspension travel, the better you can improve your riding technique. Therefore a hardtail (front suspension only) is sufficient.
  • protectors

from Red 1
  • in this offer we recommend a full-suspension all-mountain or enduro bike
  • protectors

Kids Session
  • kids mountain bike

Gerenal requirements for mountain bikes
  • Hand brakes (no coaster brake!)
  • Gear shift that works simply and without great effort
  • From Blue 1: Disc brakes highly recommended, from Blue 2 disc brakes compulsory
  • The size of the bike must be exactly matched to the body size. A bike that is too small or too big makes handling the bike very difficult
  • Good tires with enough profile for driving on trails - brittle tires must be changed
  • A bike service before the bike season is highly recommended

A suitable and well-functioning bike is much more fun!
