Bike - Kids

In different courses, our youngest bikers learn everything to be safe on the trails in the region and, above all, to have fun doing it.

  • If you want to rent the bike on site, please do it in time, so you will have a suitable bike for sure.

  • Insurance is a matter of the participants.

  • Lift and bus tickets are not included in the course price. But in combination with the course you can get discounted lift tickets at the LAAX School office.

  • We always recommend to take a snack and something to drink with you.

  • Wear proper clothing according to the weather.

Bike Equipment

  • all course participants have to bring / organize the mountain bike themselves
  • 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

  • We recommend: Knee and elbow protectors, gloves, helmet, good bike shoes, backpack with spare tube and rain jacket.

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!
