The new Supertrail Maps show the best singletrails in Europe’s hottest mountain bike spots. These unique topographic maps make the knowledge of locals available to other mountain bikers. Consistent difficulty rating and useful additional information prevent the user from critical situations on the trails. The best singletrails in the best mountain bike spots throughout Europe - this is the convincing formula of the brand new Supertrail Maps. For the first time ever, these unique topographic maps make the knowledge of locals available to others. All the trails on a map have been biked and rated in five difficulty levels for up- and downhill separately by specially trained authors. This consistent rating facilitates tour planning and spares a user from getting into sketchy situations on the trails. In addition to the difficulty rating, extraordinary nice trails are marked with a «highlight»-pictogram. The maps in a scale of 1:50 000 show all information required for tour planning and orienting oneself on the trails, such as: difficulty, highlight-trails, mountain railways with mountain bike transport, mountain bike shuttles, dangerous falls, restaurants, bike shops, emergency numbers and touristicinfopoints. Thanks to the especially chosen map section, one map covers the whole area. The Supertrail Maps are printed on tear- and waterproof foil which makes them very sturdy. On the back of any map, additional information about the area and the use of a Supertrail Map are presented in two languages. Folded dimensions of 10x15cm allow the map to fit into any pocket without squeezing.

The best rides in the freeride hot spots of the alps – this is the simple formula of the Freeride Maps. The first map available to freeriders is making the locals freeride knowledge available to a broad public. All ridable slopes, drops and couloirs are marked as freeride corridors in different colours for three difficulty ratings: blue for technically easy terrain, yellow requires advanced to very advanced ability and red is extremely difficult terrain that is partially exposed and therefore reserved to crack riders. Short ascents are marked with red lines. The Freeride Maps are based on topographic maps 1:25,000. They contain all essential information about the terrain that is necessary for planning and going freeriding. The maps are printed on water resistant and indestructible paper. On the back side, the maps include all relevant planning, safety and rescue information.
