Reserved to tough girls and boys on two wheels! ZAAHE LINE is a very challenging and stubborn trail, not easy to conquer - a quite tough adventure indeed. If you are in an excellent physical shape and if your biking skills are exceptional, then you can also choose the new Jump Line which forks-off from TEÄRE LINE (6003). Huge drops, rollers and steep turns are waiting for real biking aficionados and daredevils.

 

ZAAHE LINE

[ʦaːhə]
