Stuttgart/Reutlingen – eMountainbikes (eMTBs) offer cyclists a wide range of options. On an eMTB you can now experience uphill a flow that you otherwise only experience when cycling downhill. But handling an eMTB is something that has to be learnt. Along with cycling pleasure, safety and a responsible behaviour toward nature are absolute priorities. To ensure that they are respected Bosch eBike Systems is collaborating with, inter alia, the Steineggerhof in Italy's South Tyrol, a hotel that has specialised in mountain bike tours for many years. And trials world champion Stefan Schlie is starting the wheels turning with a riding technique camp.

eMTB: New technique, new flow
“In eMountainbiking, sport is combined with the experience of nature and technology,” says Claus Fleischer, head of the Bosch eBike Systems product division. “You are active yourself, reach altitudes and expanses in the flow and enjoy the trails. That is something that thrills keen bikers.”

Combined with the extra boost of the e in eMountainbiking, mountain biking is a special experience, especially on difficult sections such as steep wurzel trails or ascents. Even on ascents the biker experiences a genuine flow that he will otherwise only have experienced on descents: the uphill flow. And where can the pleasure of biking be better combined with breathtaking views than in the Dolomites?

Steineggerhof eMTB test centre – epowered by Bosch
To provide this combination Bosch eBike Systems collaborates with the Hotel Steineggerhof in South Tyrol. “We decided to offer guided tours 20 years ago and that is how we started out in bike tourism,” says Kurt Resch, owner of the Steineggerhof. From five guided tours a week to training courses in riding technique, the Steineggerhof offers everything to make the biker's heart miss a beat for joy – and that now includes eMountainbiking.

“At the Steineggerhof you can hire full-suspension eBikes with a Bosch Performance Line drive system and navigation provided by Nyon, the Bosch all-in-one on-board computer. If you want, you can plan your route in advance, track your data and evaluate it after the ride,” Resch says.

Riding technique tips from a professional
The Steineggerhof is not only the right place to be if you want to know more about eBike technology and accessories. For a “special” lasting several days the trials world champion and eMTB professional Stefan Schlie will be available as an eBike guide with advice and experience.

Schlie is running an eBike riding technique camp epowered by Bosch, starting at 9.30 a.m. from 18 to 26 July. “At the Steineggerhof bikers can acquaint themselves with everything that you can do with an eMountainbike,” Schlie says. “There are plenty of tricks, such as finding the right gear and level of support, getting your pedalling right or calculating your range by means of the cumulative elevation gain and the kilometres. All of that and much more you can learn at our riding technique camp.”
