Lines & trails
The variety of routes in the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN is vast and continuously expanding. There is a trail for everyone: from the easy beginner’s route to the double-black professional tour. The trail names are as unique as the lines. After all, the Ötztal dialect influences the names and describes their characteristics.
The 2 beginner lines
The beginner’s route can be accessed directly from the village with the free center shuttle – which is only about 100 m from the bike hotel Das Central. The beautiful, wide line leads at a low gradient over long rollers, and easy steep turns back to the valley.
NEW IN SUMMER 2023: A 400 m² beginner’s terrain is being built near the Schtirrgar Line, so that you can get to the basics of biking step-by-step. Afterwards, nothing stands in the way of riding the Schtirrgar Line as a beginner!
Distance: approx. 1,3 km / Descent: 90 m / Grade: easy
Perfect for beginners and children!
This line surprises with various fun elements. It can be accessed via the blue Ohn line or the moderately difficult Teäre line and leads effortlessly down into the valley to the pump track ‘Rolling’ right at the Gaislachkoglbahn.
Distance: approx. 1,6 km / Descent: 188 m / Grade: easy
The 6 easy lines
The ideal warm-up ride and perfect beginner trail that proceeds almost without altitude difference. The line starts near the Gaislachkogl middle station and leads right into the heart of the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN trail network.
Distance: approx. 2,3 km / Descent: 241 m / Grade: easy
The Ohn line is the continuation of the Eebme line. The varied line is a favorite of many riders. It flows smoothly over rollers and flat berms in the long sections, followed by wooden constructions in the lower area.
Distance: approx. 3,6 km / Descent: 377 m / Grade: easy
The Harbe line is playful, fun and exciting – but also features steep curves. It leads from the Giggijoch mountain station down to Hochsölden and offers a sensational view as well as numerous photographic highlights due to its location above the timberline.
Distance: approx. 2,2 km / Descent: 178 m / Grade: easy
The Lettn line leads through forest, meadow and wet terrain down to the Giggijochbahn and promises lots of flow trail fun and wooden passages.
Distance: approx. 1,5 km / Descent: 127 m / Grade: easy
The connecting line between Gaislachkogl and Giggijoch follows a relaxed trail and offers rollers, berms and jumps with generous landings.
Distance: approx. 1,6 km / Descent: 73 m / Grade: easy
The Gahe line meanders for 7.4 km on the Giggijoch side from Sonnblick to Grünwald. The flowing route also connects the Harbe with the Lettn line.
Distance: approx. 7,4 km / Descent: 620 m / Grade: easy
The 2 intermediate lines
The icon among the lines. BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN’s first built line, and to this day, the flow ride par excellence. With 130 turns, many waves, wallrides and the legendary wooden screw.
Distance: approx. 5,2 km / Descent: 575 m / Grade: intermediate
A must-do for all bikers with good riding technique! The line starts below the Langegg mountain station at 2,600 m, ends at the Hühnersteign and is one of the longest lines in the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN. It is incredibly challenging and varied, with berms, jumps, blocked stone fields and wooden constructions.
Distance: approx. 7 km / Descent: 712 m / Grade: intermediate
Tip: The lake right at the start is one of the best photo spots.
The 2 most difficult lines
As the name predicts, the Zaahe line (zäh / zaahe = tough, tenacious) is an intense challenge with drops, rollers and steep turns. It branches off the Teäre line and is ready to be conquered by technically experienced bikers.
Distance: approx. 0,7 km / Descent: 78 m / Grade: difficult
Olm Volle Line
The double-black, extremely demanding line is only suitable for pros. The competitive enduro course leads through steep, challenging terrain and is bristled with wallrides, wild roots and stone passages, step-ups, step-downs, drops, and jumps up to 14 m! Therefore, visiting the track in advance is mandatory.
Distance: approx. 1,5 km / Descent: 362 m / Grade: very difficult
Where it all comes together
Combinations: Long Lines
Long Line Giggijoch
BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN’s longest route! The long line Giggijoch links 5 trails and offers a spectacular 16 km descent of 1,300 m down into the valley. The starting point is at the mountain station of the Langeggbahn. Then, via the red Ollweite line, the trail continues on the blue Troaln line, which leads to the Giggijoch side. From here on, the relaxed but demanding Harbe Line takes you to Hochsölden. Finally, via the 7.4 km long blue Gahe line and the Lettn line, you descend to the valley station of the Giggijochbahn.
Distance: approx. 16 km / Descent: 1.313 m / Grade: intermediate
Long Line Gaislachkogl
Every level is covered: blue, red, green (and black if you prefer). The start is at the blue Eebme line, which then leads to the Teäre line – and offers over 130 curves on the following 5 km! Experienced bikers can always branch off to the black Zaahe jump line. After that, the Broate line with tables, rollers & wallride can be circuited. Those who like it natural can take the Schteckler trail to the Gaislachkogl valley station.
Distance: approx. 7,3 km / Descent: 806 m / Grade: intermediate
Long Line Rotkogl
3 lines, 12,5 km and 1,300 meters of altitude difference! With a view of the glacier, the route descends via the red Ollweite line, then merges with the blue Ohn line and rolls back down via the Broate line to the valley.
Distance: approx. 12,5 km / Descent: 1.300 m / Grade: intermediate
This is for all-mountain bikers & endurists
