Our levels of difficulty are based on a major Alpine road guide in which Everyone Routes are divided into driving difficulty levels (source: Wikipedia). Various factors such as route, surface, width, edge protection, inclines and declines, absolute and relative height, etc. are used for the overall assessment. The scale, which is basically vehicle-independent, includes five levels of difficulty from SG 1 to SG 5 and the respective intermediate levels (e.g. SG 2-3).
Wir verwenden für unsere Abenteuer-Reisen in Afrika die Skala von SG1 – SG4 zur Beurteilung der fahrtechnischen Anforderungen an unsere Teilnehmer.
Easy to drive routes
also suitable for beginners
mostly paved roads
Potholes and bumps possible
unpaved roads, easy gravel paths without steep gradients,
also feasible for Enduro beginners
Mixed tires should suffice
Versatile terrain, steep ascents/descents, river crossings, sandy passages, deep sand. partly boulders and constrictions. Safe driving skills required. Most studded tires required!
→ Previous completion of an enduro course is recommended!
Difficult route even for experienced riders, requires above-average driving skills. Rough tire profile recommended or required. Mostly single lane, few passing places, hardly maintained road, rough gravel, heavily washed out/extended, side slopes possible, is slippery when wet (mud, grass), possible bottlenecks, still passable fords, lack of edge protection, very narrow, undeveloped turns
steep inclines and declines
→ Previous completion of an Enduro course required!
