BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN
A PARADISE FOR ENDURANCE AND TRAIL BIKING
Sölden and its wide range of possibilities has been an insider’s tip on the single trail circuit for many years.
The Bike Republic Sölden was launched in 2015, marking the start of a diverse biking concept which has transformed Sölden into a paradise for endurance and trail biking. The offer impresses with its dense network of nature trails, shaped flow trails, challenging jumpline and Tyrol’s largest pump track. The infrastructure of the Bike Republic Sölden is also well-connected to the comfortable Sölden mountain railways. These mountain railways can be used free-of-charge by Central guests with a free Ötztal Premium Card.
The wide range of trails on offer makes Sölden a playground for bikers as well as offering plenty for all mountain bikers, endurance cyclists and freeriders.
The unique one
The Teäre Line was first opened in 2015 but has now achieved cult status. And the special thing about it? The flow trail starts at the middle station of the Gaislachkoglbahn cable car and winds its way into the village centre via 130 easy obstacles. But there are no difficult obstacles because the focus here is on maximum fun. A unique trail with lots of bends and undulations – ideal both for experienced endurance cyclists and beginners.
Length: 5,6 km / Altitude metres: 800 m /
Difficulty rating: Red
The tough one
The new Zaahe Line presents real trail enthusiasts with a special challenge – a tough feat in the truest sense of the word. The challenging jumpline branches off from the Teäre Line and offers surprising drops, rollers and steep bends.
Length: approx. 0.7 km / Difficulty rating: Black
The flat one
The ideal warm-up ride and the perfect trail for beginners which is virtually entirely flat. The new track starts out close to the Gaislachkogl middle station and leads into the heart of the Bike Republic Sölden trails network.
Length: 2,1 km / Altitude metres: 180 m /
Difficulty rating: Blue
UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH NATURE
Varied single trails
Varied single trails offer all mountain bikers and endurance cyclists with an exciting blend of flowing and technically demanding sections. One of the many highlights: the 25km long Panorama Trail Hochsölden with unbelievable views and great rest points.
Coordination & condition
The skills centre
Tyrol’s largest pump track is situated opposite the Gaislachkogl valley station and is the perfect skills centre and training area for single trails and the flow trail around Sölden. The aim is to increase speed gradually by applying a pushing motion over the undulating course.
During the construction of the trails, a strong focus has been placed on ecological construction since this year: lots of hand-crafting, no artificial drainage, minimal use of machines and renaturalisation measures. There are currently approx. 30 trail builders at work with the aim of creating approx. 10 km of trails each year.
