Find Tours that start where you are (Germany, Austria and Switzerland only)

So you can start your adventurers the moment you step outside, we’ve improved our Tour search to allow you to find Tours that start at your current location. Just select your sport in the Tour search panel on the Discover feed and see the hikes, rides and runs that literally start on your doorstep. Looking to start at a different location? You can also search for specific addresses to find Tours that start there, or use the zoom buttons to switch between Tours starting at your selected location or around it. This update is currently only available to users in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and will be released in the Netherlands very soon.

See adjusted route stats for e-bikes

Ride an e-bike? We’ve introduced a brand-new planning feature that will change the way you plan e-bike rides. Whether you ride road, a tourer or an mtb, just enable the new e-bike toggle when planning your ride to see adjusted Tour duration and difficulty estimates for your e-bike rides.

We’ve improved our routing to avoid segments that are too steep and rough for most gravel, road and touring bikes

We’ve updated our road, gravel and touring cycling routing to avoid overly steep climbs that are unsuitable for most bikes. Now, when going uphill on all but a mountain bike, komoot will no longer shortcut your climb over less suitable surfaces. In the past, for example, komoot may have opted for a steep hiking trail to shortcut a series of hairpin bends. Now, thanks to this update, you’ll stick to the most suitable version of the climb possible — so you can better enjoy the suffer-fest. Fan of climbs? Don’t worry, this does not mean that you’ll get fewer climbs on your route! You’ll still be routed up as many hills as before — we’ll just make sure your climbs are rideable on your bike type before we add them to your route.

Premium Protection is now available in France, the Netherlands and Belgium

Previously only available in Germany and Austria, Premium protection, komoot Premium’s specially designed insurance coverage, is now live for users in France, Belgium and the Netherlands. If you’re a resident of one of those countries and are already on Premium, just head to the Premium tab in the app now to activate your coverage for free. Offered in conjunction with AXA Assistance , you simply need to provide some essential information to activate your coverage. Not on Premium yet? Head to komoot.com/premium or tap on the ‘More’ tab in the app to find out more.

We’ve improved our routing so you encounter fewer barriers while you ride (UK only)

We’ve improved our routing to allow users in the UK to plan even better bike rides. Whether road, gravel, mountain biking or touring, the latest update decreases the number of barriers along your route. Now, as long as there’s a reasonable alternative that doesn’t significantly increase the length of your ride, komoot will automatically route you around barriers such as stiles, kissing gates or turnstiles.

You’ll now get routed along fewer hard-to-ride bridleways when planning rides

In many countries, bridleways can be tricky to ride. Deep sand, frequent horse traffic and unclear regulations mean they’re best avoided, whether you ride a mountain, gravel, road or touring bike. That’s why we’ve updated our routing algorithm to route you around bridleways without substantially increasing the length of your ride. 

*These changes don’t apply to the UK. We respect the specific designations per country and take into account the ride-ability of specific types of roads, streets and paths. In the UK, bridleway designations are usually suitable for mountain biking or gravel rides, so we’ll continue to route you along them as long as they remain ride-able. 

Get routed along quieter, safer roads thanks to the latest routing improvement (UK and Italy)

In both the UK and Italy, any bike rides you plan will now favor quieter, safer roads. Previously, your route may have taken you along A-roads or dual carriageways. These segments may have been unsettling for many riders due to the speed and volume of traffic. To fix this, we’ve improved our routing in the UK and Italy to favor B-roads and quieter streets with slower moving traffic.
