Skill Level Description

Our tours are skill leveled from 1 to 5. We sometimes rate them with two difficulty levels e.g. 2/3 as some tours require different riding skills in different parts of the itinerary. In these cases the first number represents the main difficulty level present and the latter, only stretches of the itinerary.

Please don't forget to fill our skill level description form when inquiring about a tour so we can better match you with the tour of your dreams.

 

Level 1:


Riders who have ridden only a few times or just started, ride sporadically, never rode on an Enduro bike or off-road or haven't been on a dirt or enduro bike for a few years. A person in this level will experience difficulty riding off-road, maneuvering on loose gravel, on stones, in sand and climbing and descending hills.

Level 2:

Riders who do not feel comfortable riding up and down hills, whoops, or standing up on the pegs. Street bike riders with no dirt/enduro bike experience. Riders who have ridden before but struggle with basic off-road techniques.

Level 3: 

Riders who can ride over stones, sand, up and down ledges with little difficulty and can ride at a faster pace. Riders in this class will have a good understanding of body language as it applies to motorcycles, such as sliding when necessary, shifting and braking at the right time and in a synchronized way.  

Level 4: 

Riders who have ridden for years and are comfortable riding in almost all conditions, but would like to work on techniques that need improvement. The rider may or may not need help on more advanced skills, such as cornering in sand, riding through whoops, climbing steep hills, riding dunes and on rocks, doing jumps or wheelies. 

Level 5: 

Very experienced riders who are able to ride with full confidence on any surface and who can ride for extended periods of time in hard conditions without stopping. Well seasoned riders and off-road racers will be in this category.
